Very enjoyable series, not much new SF out there these days that I find that enjoyable, but this trilogy was brilliant.

Publisher's summary
Earth is dying. Thousands of workers, who live in the vast caves beneath Mars, mine the precious elements that will make the planet habitable. They are Earth’s only hope. Until the day Darrow learns that it’s a lie. Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations. Darrow disguises himself and infiltrates their society, intent on taking them down. But the surface is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only one with an agenda.

Critic reviews
"Ender's Game meets The Hunger Games in the first in an extraordinary trilogy from an incredible new voice in science-fiction and fantasy"
"The writing is excellent and the story is better. This is one terrific fantasy book, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone." Terry Brooks, author of The Sword of Shannara
"The heart-stopping excitement of the Hunger Games meets the pulse-pounding majesty and complexity of Game of Thrones, all wrapped up in the visionary beauty and melancholy of Blade Runner... A shot of adrenalin for your imagination." (Star Magazine)

Apparently so, now that might get me back into a cinema.
By far the best science fiction I have ever read. Books 2 and 3 are amazing. Wonderfully written characters and well paced. My wife who hates all things science fiction even enjoyed reading the trilogy. With the next book of the follow up trilogy just released this is the perfect time to pick this up.
Excellent trilogy, first book is a little bit slow to begin with but soon picks up pace and doesn’t stop from there. I can only echo what’s already been said about it being the best science fiction I’ve read. The new book in the new trilogy has just been released too!

Great trilogy



Actually its a tetralogy (4), soon to be a quintet (5), if that is the correct nomenclature
It's also only 99p on Kindle

Red Rising: Red Rising Series 1 (The Red Rising Trilogy) amazon.co.uk/dp/…AVQ
Sounds interesting, but says £22.83 for me. Signed in and still the same. Offer expired already?

Yeah, sorry, deal of the day. It's a different one now. The kindle version is still 99p and you can get the audiobook cheap if you own the kindle book, usually.

Ah well. I'll try and catch it next time. I spent my credit this month on that Sherlock Holmes Collection which says its 70 Odd hours so that will keep me busy for plenty of bedtimes. Cheers for replying.
