Pierce Brown's Red Rising: Sons of Ares - An Original Graphic Novel (Sons of Ares #1-6) Reviews
Red Rising: Sons of Ares is a prequel to the Red Rising series that was originally released as 6 comics (which of course being a superfan I've already purchased!), I believe the comics are now out of print and only available as ebooks so I think it's fantastic for fans that we're now getting this hardback bind-up of the whole series. The hardback is available in two versions signed or unsigned which is slightly cheaper. I've preordered the signed copy and I can't wait to see it on my shelves.
As a huge fan of Red Rising saga I was grateful for every new insight into this fictional world created by Pierce Brown. I did enjoy reading this graphic novel, yet I have to admit that I had expected so much more from it... More depth, more feels, more everything. Guess I have been spoiled by Pierce Brown’s prose and storytelling in this format wasn’t enough for me.
However, I really liked artistic side of this graphic novel. Art in Sons of Ares is enigmatic and gritty. It has this gloomy qualit ...more
A great insight into another aspect of the Red Rising 'verse. I wanted a bit more detail though.
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
I am a die-hard Red Rising fan, so I was thrilled when I learned that Dynamite would be publishing a prequel to the series. In fact, I purchased and read the single issues each week that they were released. I'm impatient.
Overall, I really loved the graphic novel. Powell's art is strong, graphic, and intense, which plays well against the harsher nature of Brown's story. We're given very real characters fighting a system that's designed to beating them down. It’s harsh, cruel, unfair, and ...more

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
I am a huge fan of Red Rising Saga and couldn't resist the opportunity to review this prequel set in the same world. After this, I will not be reading any more graphic novels in the near future. I didn't get the depth and details I experienced with the novels. Perhaps it's more of a "It's me, not the author" because I've devoured everything else Brown has written. I wouldn't recommend reading this as a stand alone but as a compliment, if you enjoy graphics.
Thank you to NetGalley and Diamond Bo ...more
