The wait is over, fellow Howlers! Pierce Brown continues Darrow's story but he now widens the narrative scope to include more characters in the Solar System, expanding our points of view with new characters and old. It's been ten years since the Rising and everyone is tired of fighting. Darrow sets out on a rogue mission to take down the powerful Ash Lord whom he believes to be the last major threat to the tenuous accords between Colors. Alliances that were once new and strong now strain against the passing of a decade. There is civil unrest in the Sovereign's new Republic, fueled by the Reaper’s unfulfilled promises. Iron Gold shows the gritty after-effects of a rebellion won and a war started, that life only get harder from there. Beware, you will need emotional support within reach for many chapters. There's plenty of swearing as well as heart wrenching displays of injustice. I love these books because of the exploration of humanity’s relationship with power and ethics, and of course pure, adrenaline-filled unpredictability.— Leah
A decade ago Darrow was the hero of the revolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But the Rising has shattered everything: Instead of peace and freedom, it has brought endless war. Now he must risk all he has fought for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself? Red Rising was the story of the end of one universe, and Iron Gold is the story of the creation of a new one.
