Red Rising is one of my favorite books of all time. I would describe it as a mix of Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, and Ender’s Game mixed along with Roman Mythology. It is an action packed fantasy novel with complex characters and an unpredictable storyline.
It is set in the distant future with a race of people controlling everything. The protagonist, Darrow has to find a way to bring it all down while keeping his identity secret and finding allies among his enemies. I couldn’t put this book down after I started it and flew through the rest of the trilogy. If you haven’t read this book yet, you definitely need to add this to the top of your list.
