Review: Pierce Brown’s Red Rising: Sons Of Ares #2

Pierce Brown's Red Rising: Sons Of Ares #2
Pierce Brown’s Red Rising: Sons Of Ares #2 by Pierce Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sons of Ares Issue #2 picks up right where Issue #1 left off and is…just as short as Issue 1.

I’m dying. I swear, I’m dying.

Issue #2 loses no momentum from Issue #1 — which is good — and gives us a huge chunk of Fitchner au Barca backstory — which is even better.

I’ve got to admit, as exciting as the “current” timeline of the Sons of Ares mission is, I’m far more invested in the Fitchner backstory timeline. I think it’s because everything I got from him in Brown’s original trilogy means I find his story — something I’ve admittedly always wanted — so, so fascinating.

Not only does it inform his character, but it also gives us some more insight into the social and familial politics of the Golds, something that was integral to Brown’s initial trilogy.

So…can someone just give me Issue #3 right now and tell me more about Fitchner? That’d be bloodydamn brilliant.
