Pierce Brown is one of the most amazing American science imaginary tale writers. His first work of fiction, Red Rising, first appearance was on 28 January, 2014. It was the first chapter in the Red Rising Trilogy.

Pierce Brown spent most his childhood setting traps and building forts for his cousins. He graduated college in the year 2010, and fancied the inspiration of going on with his studies at Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry, even though he does not have a supernatural bone. So while making it as an author, he worked as a supervisor of Social media at an established tech corporation. When Pierce was only twenty-three years, he managed to get a book deal with the Random House. Moreover, he blessed many people with his books and his looks as well! He really likes cats, dogs and reading.

Pierce Brown is a wonderful writer. The debut novelist blends the past, present and the future together in a work of fiction that if you have not read yet, you will want to soon since it is all you’ll hear about. He managed to construct a persuasive innovative setting that bears homage and hints to other franchise (as well as Star Wars), but still subsists as its own exclusive beast. The characters do not come across as pampered, rather the writer takes heed to push them to their ultimate limits of understanding and morality (and occasionally past those limits). The whole lot feels so alive and fresh.

Part of his new aesthetic is due in great part to the fact that Pierce Brown is a discovery author. This means that he does not plan the whole tale before he begins; he kind of lets them take off on their own, discovering the plot and the characters’ fates as he writes them. The amazing thing about this mode of writing from a reader’s viewpoint is that you plainly never know how the tale is going to end: who is going to die, who is going to stay alive or what secrets will come crashing down. The tale will begin in one position and end up on an absolutely different plane by the closing pages. Moreover, he was nominated as Good reads choice awards best debut author.

In Pierce Brown’s Golden Son, the story is set on planet Mars in a caste-driven culture where your whole role in life is determined by the color (caste) into which one is born. Children are time and again genetically modified to go with their caste status and be simply identified by color. Pierce did not imagine that he would have so many smart characters, which were independent, around Darrow. He always thought it would be Darrow driven, but in sincerity he is just the game changer, but they are all playing the same game, and that is what makes the Golden Son so entertaining.

Golden Son is a 2015 imaginary tale novel, the second of Brown’s imminent Red Rising trilogy. With shades of Ender’s Game, The Hunger Games, and Game of Thrones, first appearance writer Pierce Brown’s genre defying impressive Red Rising knocked the earth running and didn’t waste any time becoming a sensational novel. Golden Son continues the dramatic saga of Darrow, a revolutionary rebel forged by catastrophe, battling to direct his oppressed community to freedom.

As one of the Reds, Darrow grew up working in the mines beneath the Mar’s surface, enduring back-breaking labor while dreaming for a better future that was being built for his descendants. However, the society he devotedly served was built on deceit. They have been deceived and denied by their superior masters, the Golds—and their only course to liberation is rebellion. And so he sacrifices himself for greater good. Her wife laid down her life for the Gold as well. Heartbroken and determined to take revenge on his wife’s death, Darrow is recruited by a inexplicable faction whose plan it is infiltrating the Golds. The Golds are the elites who enslave the Reds; and hold a lie that the surface of Mars is not fit to live in when it is already occupied. To do this, he, Darrow, must also be one of the Golds. He must go through a complete and excruciating change to make him taller, stronger and golden. And only then, will Darrow be accepted into the “Academy”, where he will fight against the other Golds for a prestigious position in their chain of command. The Academy segment reads like lots of other works of fiction such as The Hunger Games, Enders Game and the Lord of the Flies. It is a mixture of diverse ideas and telling works in spite of of their originality. Frankly, there is enough plot twists as well as a few that were never seen coming. The combination of society divisions, science fiction, strategy, combat and plotting, was really interesting.

In his own opinion, Pierce Brown views his first book as one that entails justice versus revenge. His second book is about trust while the third book is all about faith and hope. Darrow knows things are not black and white. Furthermore, no matter what his emotions might make him feel, he has to recognize that he has an objective to accomplish, thus if it means having a number of rivals who used to be friends, so be it. But if nothing is well, Darrow is extremely practical. Pierce Brown’s characters have to find out their own commitments and book three is where their options finally stick since their destinies are sealed. The size of the book changes as the size of the world keeps on expanding. In the second book, Pierce had it all in his head. However, when it got on paper, the book’s scenes and emotions grew to a whole new level. The third book became a much trickier task for Pierce. Now, the third and last chapter of Darrow’s hierarchy hopping trilogy is at hand: Morning Star. It is to be released on 5th January, 2016.

Pierce Brown now lives in Los Angeles, where he writes tales of wizards, spaceships, ghouls, and most old and bizarre things. So the most you can expect until then is possibly just an announcement of Pierce Brown’s involvement with The Star Wars books. Be on the lookout for the next amazing novel!
