Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Offered the chance to infiltrate the training academy for the elite ruling class in a future where Mars has been colonized, a young miner who once believed in love transforms himself completely into a ruthless killer.

All comparisons between Red Rising and Ender’s Game and The Hunger Games are entirely and awesomely appropriate. I’m almost sad I got a review copy because I’ll just have to wait that much longer for the next installment in the story. The storytelling, worldbuilding, character development, and plotting is superb–and the writing craft is there, too. This is the real thing, people. If you think this might be your next read, you’re not moving fast enough. Get reading.

Many thanks to Del Rey for the review copy.
