Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other infamous strategists. The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any listener interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

I have learnt so much in this book. This book has taught me how to be a better version of myself and helped me understand the reasons behind many actions we make today. It does not hold back on some of the brutal truths. A crucial book that teaches the essence of what makes a person powerful and influential. Honestly, you will make better choices after reading this book.

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.

I found my favorite all time book, and that is the Red Raising Series. It had me hooked right from chapter one. The writing in this book is so vivid and so full of imagination. The story is mature, dark and full of emotions, packed with action and the underlying messages / plot makes me reflect on our modern society. The characters are super likable and relatable. It was impossible not to binge this book and onto the next one.

When Lister got drunk, he really got drunk! After celebrating his birthday with a Monopoly-board pub crawl around London, he came to in a burger bar on one of Saturns moons, wearing a lady's pink crimplene hat and a pair of yellow fishing waders, with no money and a passport in the name of "Emily Berkenstein". Joining the Space Corps seemed a good idea.

Ten years after the events of Morning Star, Darrow and the Rising are battling the remaining Gold loyalist forces and are closer than ever to abolishing the color-coded caste system of Society for good. But new foes will emerge from the shadows to threaten the imperfect victory Darrow and his friends have earned. Pierce Brown expands the size and scope of his impressive Red Rising universe with new characters, enemies, and conflicts among the stars.

As always I love the red raising series. only this time it has 3 more narrators. it took me some time to get use to and they all had different pace in their speech I had to slow down some of the narrators. Lyria's narrator was a bit too passionate... I really enjoyed the original narrator.


I love the story. This book adds another layer of depth into all of yhe characters. I feel like the book is growing darker and darker.

i cant wait for the next book.
