Pierce Brown has been making waves with his fantastic Red Rising trilogy, and now that the third book in the trilogy, Morning Star, has been released, he’s announced that he’s writing three more books! Brown’s trilogy takes place in a stratified society, where people are divided into colour groups. A Red miner named Darrow is elevated to a Gold, and works to bring down society from within.
The next book, titled Iron Gold, will kick off the new trilogy:
In addition to imagining what human colonies on other planets are doing while the Martian drama is going on, Brown wants to dig into “the cracks of civilisation” and explore elements he’s only been able to touch on briefly, such as the Mafia-like Syndicate. Plus, the cast of the Iron Gold series will introduce new characters and bring back fan favourites such as Darrow’s loyal friend Sevro and the Gold girl Mustang.
Back in 2014, Universal announced that they were going to film an adaptation of the novel, with Marc Forester at the helm.
