But in a way that you probably aren’t expecting. Sure, Iron Gold will publish in January 2018 and I’m sure Pierce will be signing hardcover copies of that sequel to Morning Star, but first we get a prequel!
Yes, a prequel! In comic book format. From the talented people at Dynamite. Pierce decided to develop and co-write a story that takes place before his first novel, Red Rising, focusing on the Sons of Ares. And he is signing each issue of the six-issue series as they are released monthly.
What is this all about? Here are more details:
(W) Pierce Brown, Rik Hoskin (A) Eli Powell (CA) Toby Cypress
From the world of the best-selling YA series Red Rising comes a story of love and loss and rage! In the future, when mankind has spread across the stars, the hierarchy of man is dictated by the color of one’s caste. The Golds rule all, but what will happen when one falls for a lowly Red? See how a forbidden love will set the course of events for the future and lead to the formation of the formidable Sons of Ares! Written by author Pierce Brown (The Red Rising Trilogy) and Rik Hoskin (Heroes of Skyrealm, Brandon Sanderson’s White Sand), with art by Eli Powell (Yakuza Demon Killers, The 13th Artifact), comes the in-continuity story of revolution and Red Rising!
