The shortest month of the year has come to an end, but even with an extra day this month I only bought 1 book… That’s right. And that book was purchased on the very last day of the month.
So this will be a short blog post, but I don’t think you’ll mind. And if you do, oh well, nothing to be done about that.
So the lucky book that now has a home on my already overflowing bookshelves is…
by Pierce Brown
NOTE! THIS IS BOOK 5 IN THE RED RISING SAGA SO THIS SYNOPSIS WILL HAVE SPOILERS! READ AT OWN RISK!!!!
For a decade Darrow led a revolution against the corrupt color-coded Society. Now, outlawed by the very Republic he founded, he wages a rogue war on Mercury in hopes that he can still salvage the dream of Eo. But as he leaves death and destruction in his wake, is he still the hero who broke the chains? Or will another legend rise to take his place?
Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile, has returned to the Core. Determined to bring peace back to mankind at the edge of his sword, he must overcome or unite the treacherous Gold families of the Core and face down Darrow over the skies of war-torn Mercury.
But theirs are not the only fates hanging in the balance.
On Luna, Mustang, Sovereign of the Republic, campaigns to unite the Republic behind her husband. Beset by political and criminal enemies, can she outwit her opponents in time to save him?
Once a Red refugee, young Lyria now stands accused of treason, and her only hope is a desperate escape with unlikely new allies.
Abducted by a new threat to the Republic, Pax and Electra, the children of Darrow and Sevro, must trust in Ephraim, a thief, for their salvation—and Ephraim must look to them for his chance at redemption.
As alliances shift, break, and re-form—and power is seized, lost, and reclaimed—every player is at risk in a game of conquest that could turn the Rising into a new Dark Age.
Yes.. the photo is a bit crap, but it was taken at Starbucks where I’m currently sat and have been sat all day, so yeah.. who cares.
BUT I am Red Rising trash so when I spotted this book in the correct size (UK paperback is my weakness) I had to get it. This series/saga is so mindblowingly good and kickass awesome that I encourage EVERYONE to read it. I admit, it’s a thick-ass book, but oh my star lord will you be craving more pages.
This series would make for incredible TV-show. Just saying.
