Red Rising: The wait has come to an end....or has it just begun?

Red Rising 
By: Pierce Brown
Publishing Date: January 28th, 2014
4.5 stars

"The War begins...

Darrow is a Helldiver, one of a thousand men and women who live in the vast caves beneath the surface of Mars. Generations of Helldivers have spent 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. Mars is habitable - and indeed has been inhabited for generations by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. The Golds regard Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought.

With the help of a mysterious group of rebels, Darrow 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..."

It's hard to believe that this day has finally come.
It feels like I waited forever to read this book and finally write my feelings about it. While I was anticipating the release of the book I could not help but read the reviews on it, which just added fuel to my anticipation. 
Well I got to read the darn book! WOOOO WHOOOO!!!! But is the wait over.....or has it only just begun??

Everything said about this book is true! It is phenomenal, brilliant and bold. This book just dominates all other dystopian's. It kick all of their butts. RIGHT IN THE ARSE!
So I'll make this quick and not go into what the book is all about. You can read the summary/blurb about the book or you can read any of the following reviews above and below this one. I'm simply here to let y'all know that:

This book will make you feel emotions you never thought you could possible feel. For instance, this book brought me to tears and brought the most outrageous crying sounds out of me. I sounded barbaric!!
Once that subsided the rage came.

This book was Intense. Nail biting, edge of the seat, what the fuck is going to happen, INTENSE!!! This book deserves the hype it's getting and Pierce Brown deserve a reward for writing such an extremely fierce story. I can not wait to read more about the heroic Darrow, to see how much more awesome he get the older he becomes.

But....Here we are again!!! Playing the waiting game, anticipating the release for Red Rising's second installment. UUUGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

It is a vicious cycle that we must succumb to when we are introduced to a new series. A pain that I will suffer continuously!

Oh well! Til next time! Go read this book!
