This is the second time I’ve read the fourth book in the Red Rising series.
Iron Gold is different from the first three books in that it’s told from the perspectives of multiple characters. That technique works fine–it allows for an expansive view of the Red Rising universe–though I think Pierce Brown got more comfortable with the multi-viewpoint structure in the fifth book (Dark Age).
I wish the sixth book was already out so I could burn through the entire story. Iron Gold is a downer out of necessity (the nascent Republic is under attack), and Dark Age is rough (amazing, but rough). I’d like to have something exciting to look forward to as I go through my Red Rising re-read.
