 “Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.

But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.

Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power.  He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

About Pierce Brown

Pierce Brown spent his childhood building forts and setting traps for cousins in the woods of six states and the deserts of two. Graduating from college in 2010, he fancied the idea of continuing his studies at Hogwarts. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a magical bone in his body. So while trying to make it as a writer, he worked as a manager of social media at a startup tech company, toiled as a peon on the Disney lot at ABC Studios, did his time as an NBC page, and gave sleep deprivation a new meaning during his stint as an aide on a U.S. Senate campaign. Now he lives Los Angeles, where he scribbles tales of spaceships, wizards, ghouls, and most things old or bizarre.

Book Title: The Spellcaster’s Grimoire
Author: Mark All

When a dying warlock entrusts her with an ancient and powerful grimoire, she runs for her life from his murderer, psychotic witch Kate,” The Spellcaster’s Grimoire by Mark All

Book Review: The Lunatic Café (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #4)

Book Title: The Lunatic Café (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #4)
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

I’ve survived a lot – from jealous vampires to killer zombies – but this love thing may kill me yet,” Anita Blake, The Lunatic Café by Laurel K. Hamilton

Final Verdict: If you like love triangles and romance, this will be the best in the series for you. If, like me, you like the butt kicking, zombie raiser and vampire executioner side of Anita Blake, this book will most likely fall flat for you.

Book Review: Circus of the Damned (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #3)

Book Title: Circus of the Damned (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #3)
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

There was dried chicken blood embedded under my fingernails. When you raise the dead for a living, you have to spill a little blood” Anita Blake, Circus of the Damned by Laurell K. Hamilton

Final Verdict: If you enjoyed books one and two in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Series then Circus of the Damned is a must read. A little repetitive overall, but it ties up plot points that have been building and the twist at the ending somewhat makes up for it!

Book Review: Demonic Dora

Book Title: Demonic Dora
Author: Claire Chilton

An attractive, blond haired boy with bright, blue eyes fell through the door. He wore a swashbuckler’s shirt and tight, leather pants. ‘Don’t worry, Minx-witch. I shall save you!’ he cried.

Dora gasped and swung her fist out at the strange boy. This fist made a solid connection with his jaw and sent him flipping over face first onto the floor. She looked down at his unconscious body and sighed. ‘Okay, if you must.’”
Demonic Dora by Claire Chilton

Final Verdict: Run and get this as soon as it is published. A bit of crass humor, but fitting for a great story and great characters!

Author: Laurel K. Hamilton

Death didn’t bother me much. Strong Christian and all that. Method of death did. Being eaten alive. One of my top three ways not to go out.
Anita Blake, The Laughing Corpse by Laurel K. Hamilton.

Final Verdict: The more I read of this series, the more I like it. It is the best Vampire series that I have read so far.
