Red Rising

Red Rising  - Pierce Brown Caste systems on Mars. Teenagers playing war games at Command School with life or death consequences. Deception, disguises, and subterfuge. Welcome to Red Rising.

The first part of the book was slow, and I almost gave up on it. I did not get attached to Darrow or Eo, and did not care about their harsh life under the surface of Mars. But I found myself enjoying the story much more from Part 2 on, although the book was plodding at times and I never did get attached to Darrow. He's just too perfect. He was better at everything and it was tiring to read. But I enjoyed the politics of the story and the world building was solid. I will eventually read book 2. 3 stars.
