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 t ...more
Pierce Brown’s Red Rising: Sons of Ares is a prequel to Darrow’s story in Red Rising. Set at the dawn of the creation of the Society, Sons of Ares tells the story of the birth of the resistance through the character of Fitchner.
A narrative in stark but compelling terms, Sons of Ares provides us with a backstory that is pivotal in the Red Rising series. More than a prequel, Sons of Ares is also different vista.
By design, the intention of graphic novels is to tell a story more through art and t ...more
Not a great fan of the art in this, but it was nice to see things like the torchships and spring razors in action. The art's kind of muddy and sketchy throughout--would love to see this in the hands of a more talented artist. But the story is what makes this worthwhile. You get to see the youth and background of Fitchner and what motivated him to start the revolutionary group The Sons of Ares. Fitchner was born a Gold but became disenchanted with his society, eventually falling in love with and ...more
I'll preface this with I haven't read the Red Rising novels yet. But I figured since this is a prequel I shouldn't need to. A lot of the world building that I'm sure is in the novels, has been glossed over here, so in that respect, I felt a bit lost in the first issue. Once it started focusing on Fitchner's history, I was fine, especially after he heads to Titan. The book is Fitchner's life story, or at least the highlights. I hated the art. Powell can only draw one facial expression, a scowl. T ...more
This is a graphic novel that takes place in the world of Pierce Brown's Red Rising series.
I have not read the Red Rising series so I am not sure if this is a prequel, sequel or spin-off of the main story. However, it's not necessary to read the series to be able to enjoy this graphic novel, it stands on its own.
The story takes place in outer space where mankind has spread to. In this world, people are designed to perform certain tasks and are referred to by a color. The color is not their actu ...more
“Red Rising: Sons of Ares” is a must for any diehard Red Rising fan. The backstory of how it all began is interesting, and I hope it continues. One of my favorite touches was that the text bubbles matched the color of whoever was speaking. Anyone who hasn’t read the books first probably won’t find it enjoyable, so please read the wonderful series first!

I am a big fan of the Red Rising series and I was delighted to read this comic book which is a prequel to the original saga.
Here we will follow the story of the Sevro's father and how he will fall in love with his mother a Red and the complications that entails. I must say that this book is a real bonus for fans of the series. Sevro is a favorite for many and I must say that his father who has a key role was in my eyes a mystery. Discovering his past and how Ares started is something I loved rea ...more
