The few people who read this blog know that I love Pierce Brown’s “Red Rising” series. And if you’re new, just check here and here. Unfortunately, I missed him last year at Phoenix Comicon, when he was just an up-and-coming YA author promoting his debut novel.

Since then he’s won the Goodreads Award for Best Debut Author and topped dozens of best-of lists. So I’m seriously jazzed that he’s coming back this year.

If you are unfamiliar with Brown, he is the author of the bestselling Red Rising and its sequel, Golden Son, which follow Darrow, a slave on Mars who is genetically modified and trained to lead a revolution.

red rising They are two of the best sci-fi novels to come out in the past year, are being hailed as the next big YA series, have sparked a Hollywood bidding war and generally just been awesome.

And he’s coming back to Phoenix.

So all you Sons of Ares, come on out to see one of the hottest new names in sci-fi and YA lit. It’s gonna be gorydamn epic.
