Review: “Iron Gold” by Pierce Brown

After devouring (and recently rereading) the original trilogy, the Red Rising Saga, I could not wait to get my teeth into the fourth book that takes place 10 years after the last one.

Thank you to NetGalley and Solaris for providing me with this eARC in exchange for an unbiased review.

I’ve read a number of non-fiction books about North Korea, their dictators, escapees, refugees, and so on. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been more fascinated by a …
