"Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow."-Scott
Pierce Brown's relentlessly entertaining debut channels the
excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.
"I live for the dream that my children will be born free," she
says. "That they will be what they like. That they will own the
land their father gave them."
"I live for you," I say sadly.
Eo kisses my cheek. "Then you must live for more."
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 lush
wilds spread across the planet. Darrow-and Reds like him-are
nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.
Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of
lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary
Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the
next generation of humanity's overlords struggle for power.
He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of
civilization against the best and most brutal of Society's ruling
class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . .
. even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
