From the world of the best-selling YA series Red Rising comes a story of love and loss and rage!

In the future, when mankind has spread across the stars, the hierarchy of man is dictated by the color of one's caste. The Golds rule all, but what will happen when one falls for a lowly Red? See how a forbidden love will set the course of events for the future and lead to the formation of the formidable Sons of Ares!

Written by author Pierce Brown (The Red Rising Trilogy) and Rik Hoskin (Heroes of Skyrealm, Brandon Sanderson's White Sand), with art by Eli Powell (Yakuza Demon Killers, The 13th Artifact), comes the in-continuity story of revolution and Red Rising!

Over the course of the RED RISING trilogy, we learned of a Gold who didn’t meet the exacting standards of his peers. He wasn’t as tall, as bright, as shiny, as his gilded brethren, but rather than having the decency to die in the passage, he lived to become a peerless scarred.

And turned their world upside down.


RED RISING: SONS OF ARES is Fitchner’s story.

It’s the story of how he fell in love with a Red and how that love became the foundation of a rebellion that brought his world to its knees.

It fills in the gaps of the things we thought we knew . . .

But we were wrong.

Fitchner didn’t fall in love with a Red and live a peaceful, happy life with her until the aberration was discovered.

Nothing in Fitchner’s life was ever peaceful or happy, so we should’ve known better.

Maybe you did.

But I didn’t.

Either way, Fitchner’s story is not one that should go unread.

Now it’s your turn to learn his truth. Highly recommended.

My name is Jessica and I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m trying my hand at writing, but mostly I read. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and the YA versions of those genres, but if there is a book of a different color getting lots of buzz, I’ll read it too, just to be informed. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably on Goodreads or Pinterest or baking blueberry pies because I love them.
