User reviews about this book
Deus Ex Machina
Pretty bad when a sequel is so far off where the author left us that he has to pull a Deus Ex Machina in the first chapter. A boy who literally learned "didn't see that coming" (invisible enemies) in book one, didn't see "that" coming. Twice. Then there's the plot device that a ruling elite that thrives on power and punishes weakness allows one family to bear a grudge because a weak child is killed by a nobody. Other great houses not only do not laugh, ridicule or kill them for their weakness, but actively support them instead. This universe works or it doesn't, Mr Author, and apparently it doesn't.
Buy it and settle in for a great ride!
Great series of books.
I cannot wait until the next book comes out. After red rising, I didn't think it could get any better... Oh, but it did
Most trilogy's I read the second book always slows down and sets the stage for the third book, but not with this time. Golden Son picks up pace and never slows down from start to finish. By far the best Books I've read in years and I can't wait for the third to come out and finish the adventure that Red Rising started
A lot of hype
The over arching theme to this book is not original. There are so many books on the market that have young men battling against the old guard.
I really wanted to like this book. But it's lack of originality became tiresome.
Tragic and Suspenseful
I appreciate that people compare this book to Hunger games, etc., but I kept thinking Shakespeare. Tragedy combined with comedy. It is a reflection of the human condition of violence, rage, vengeance, love, friendship and family. I truly loved it and can't wait to see how Darrow finishes this incredible journey.
I love what others are comparing the book to game of thrones, and Star Wars.. after the first which was very hunger games. This series is fantastic!! although it does help I have a crush on the author. 😉
Very good! Not a typical 2nd book in a trilogy, great story! Can't wait for book 3!!
Can't put it down. I hate that I finished it so fast but I couldn't stop reading. I can't wait for the third!
