Ender's Game meets The Hunger Games in this, the first in an extraordinary trilogy from an incredible new voice.
Darrow is a Helldiver, one of a thousand men and women who live in the vast caves beneath the surface of Mars, generations of people who spend their lives toiling to mine the precious elements that will allow the planet to be terraformed. Just knowing that, one day, people will be able to walk the surface of the planet is enough to justify their sacrifice. The Earth is dying, and Darrow and his people are the only hope humanity has left.
Until the day Darrow learns that it is all a lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations, by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down at Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought.
Until the day Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their command school, intent on taking down his oppressors from the inside.
But the command school is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only student with an agenda.

I enjoyed this dystopian view of the future. It was a page-turner with the society divided into colours, denoting their place in the hierarchy and their skill set. Well worth a read. Read full review

I enjoyed the story setup of this book and the people involved, but it seemed to degenerate into constant battles about half way through and I didn't finish it. Read full review
