Golden Son: the reactions

Oh, the feels! The plot twists, the torment, the adventure, the torn hearts and beheadings! I’ve just finished the second installment of Pierce Brown’s Red Rising trilogy entitled the Golden Son, which I’m going to review twice. Yes, twice. Because it’s worth it. WARNING! Spoilers ahead.

He’s very confused about the people around him

And his whole man-on-a-mission debate goes something like: “They’re my friends. They’re not my friends. I hate them. I like them. They’re kinda nice. They’re monsters”

Just like any war, there’s a lot of scheming and foul play.

There are a few BIG reveals in the book.

As in VERY big.

And a few big betrayals.

But Darrow and Co. manage to get out of quite a few tight spots. When everything seems to be lost.
