June 2016 is when I started the Red Rising series and I was an instant fan. The series is fast paced and a ton of fun. After finishing the first three I heard a new book was underway and it finally came out this year and I just finished it.
Iron Gold is set in the future from book three and it feels a lot like a build up book where we are getting introduced to new characters that will continue the series through the next books. I felt a little let down by this book and I know it’s because much more is coming, but to me, it didn’t have that excitement as the first three. It left me wanting a lot more.
I have a lot of hope for this series and I’m sure I’ll preorder book 5 as soon as it’s announced but now is a good time to start if you haven’t yet. The first three do not disappoint.
