Red Rising is the thrilling first entry in the Red Rising Saga. Darrow has never seen the sky. He is a Red, a member of the lowly mining caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he willingly spends his life digging underground, believing his sacrifice will make the surface livable for future generations.

Then Darrow makes a horrible discovery. Humanity actually reached the surface generations ago. The Reds are slaves, in service to a decadent ruling class.

Longing for justice, driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow joins the resistance to destroy society from within. He will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies…even if he has to become one of them to do it.
