Ender's Game meets The Hunger Games in MORNING STAR , the second in an extraordinary trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of RED RISING.'I'm still playing games. This is just the deadliest yet.' Darrow is a rebel forged by tragedy. For years he and his fellow Reds worked the mines, toiling to make the surface of Mars inhabitable. They were, they believed, mankind's last hope. Until Darrow discovered that it was all a lie, and that the Red were nothing more than unwitting slaves to an elitist ruling class, the Golds, who had been living on Mars in luxury for generations. In RED RISING, Darrow infiltrated Gold society, to fight in secret for a better future for his people. Now fully embedded amongst the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his dangerous work to bring them down from within. It's a journey that will take him further than he's ever been before - but is Darrow truly willing to pay the price that rebellion demands?A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Son guarantees Pierce Brown's continuing status as one of fiction's most exciting new voices.
Darrow is a Helldiver, one of a thousand men and women who live in the vast caves beneath the surface of Mars, generations of people who spend their lives toiling to mine the precious elements that will allow the planet to be terraformed. Just knowing that, one day, people will be able to walk the surface of the planet is enough to justify their sacrifice. The Earth is dying, and Darrow and his people are the only hope humanity has left. Until the day Darrow learns that it is all a lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations, by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down at Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought. Until the day Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their society.
Darrow er Rød og hører dermed til den laveste kaste i et samfund, hvor befolkningen er delt op i farver. Hele sit liv har han arbejdet som slave i minerne under Mars’ overflade. Et arbejde som ikke bare er hårdt og farligt, men som også viste sig at være bygget på en løgn. De Røde er blevet holdt nede af samfundets top – de Gyldne – i flere århundreder, og nu er revolutionen den eneste vej til frihed. Darrow slutter sig til en oprørsgruppe, giver sig ud for at være Gylden og skal nu infiltrere det Gyldne Rige indefra. Han er som et lam blandt ulve. Alligevel finder han venskab og respekt – endda kærlighed – blandt de Gyldne. Men han finder også en voldsom vrede blandt sine rivaler. Hvis Darrow skal gøre sig håb om at vinde den krig, som vil ændre menneskehedens skæbne, må han konfrontere det forræderi, han står overfor.
”Jeg lever for drømmen om, at mine børn fødes i frihed,” siger hun. ”At de kan være dem, de vil være. At de kan eje den jord, deres far gav dem.” ”Jeg lever for dig,” siger jeg sørgmodigt. Hun kysser mig på kinden. ”Du må leve for mere.” Jorden er død, og Jordens befolkning forsøger nu at gøre Mars beboelig. Darrow er minearbejder og Rød – den laveste kaste i et samfund, hvor befolkningen er delt op i farver. Ligesom de andre minearbejdere har Darrow aldrig set himlen. De arbejder hver eneste dag dybt nede i Mars’ undergrund for at skaffe det grundstof, som skal gøre overfladen beboelig for mennesker. Men en dag går det op for Darrow, at det hele er en løgn. Mars har været beboelig – og beboet – i generationer af den kaste, der kalder sig de Gyldne. På Mars’ overflade har de Gyldne i århundreder nydt livet, mens de har holdt de Røde som slaver i undergrunden. Det får Darrow til at slutte sig til en gruppe af oprørere. Tiden er inde til RØD OPSTAND.
