Darrow is a miner and a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he digs all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of the planet livable for future generations. Darrow has never seen the sky.
Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better future for his children.
But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity already reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow and Reds like him are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.
Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow joins a resistance group in order to infiltrate the ruling class and destroy society from within. He will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
Wow what a great read. This book is hands down the best novel set in a dystopian time that I have ever read. It grabs you right from the start and then you are off on some kind of ride. You can’t even begin to understand how hard life is for our main character Darrow and his fellow Reds on Mars.
The book is dark and even a bit horrific but don’t let that scare you away. You have to read this book! The main character Darrow is so badass and yet so loving at the same time, the girls are gonna love him and the guys want to be him. I am sure there will be a second book in the near future, and I would not be surprised if they didn’t even have a movie in the works as well.
Do yourself a favor and pre-order this book now. You will want to get your hands on this one as soon as you can.
