My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is odd for me, but I am going to recommend a book that isn’t even out yet.

I read the ARC, and I was captivated enough to want to alert you to its publishing date in January 2014. The book is Red Rising by Pierce Brown. This is a first book by a new author. It has hints of Harry Potter and Hunger Games, but it is its own animal. And it is not YA. The writing is excellent and the story is better. This is one terrific fantasy book, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It is hard to tell you the plot other than to say it is about the oppressed overcoming the oppresser, about one man’s quest for vengence leading him to a surprising resolution. Give it a try when it surfaces.
