I received an advanced copy of Golden Son from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
After reading Red Rising, the first book in this trilogy, I was really looking forward to Golden Son. What I loved about the first book in the trilogy – Red Rising – was the development of the relationships between the characters and how they made it through together. In Golden Son, it was sometimes hard to tell who was a good guy and who was a bad guy. I found myself rooting for Augustus and his men and then all of a sudden remembering that Augustus was actually a bad guy. Golden Son blurred the lines between who was good and who was bad. While I wouldn’t say that Golden Son wasn’t a well written book, it didn’t suck me in like Red Rising did. I hope that the third book, when it comes out, will satisfy all of my questions.
Not a bad read.
The expected publication date is January 13, 2015.
