Phoenix Comic Fest’s Exclusive Interview with Pierce Brown

by | Feb 16, 2018

On January 20, 2018, Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, AZ was overrun by a legion of fans of the Red Rising series, aka Howlers, patiently waiting to meet Pierce Brown. It has been nearly two years since the release of Morning Star and fans have been eager to get their hands on the next installment in the Red Rising saga, titled Iron Gold. Iron Gold is set ten years after the events of Morning Star and gives us a look into what happens after you break the chains of the Society.

Phoenix Comic Fest co-hosted Brown’s signing at Changing Hands Bookstore and we were able to get a few minutes to talk with Howler One, himself. While there, we also spoke with a few member of the Howler legion waiting in line for the signing. Check out our exclusive interview below.

Iron Gold is available now at all book retailers. Get your copy today!

About Iron Gold:

They call him father, liberator, warlord, Reaper. But he feels a boy as he falls toward the pale blue planet, his armor red, his army vast, his heart heavy. It is the tenth year of war and the thirty-second of his life.

A decade ago Darrow was the hero of the revolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But the Rising has shattered everything: Instead of peace and freedom, it has brought endless war. Now he must risk everything he has fought for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself?

And throughout the worlds, other destinies entwine with Darrow’s to change his fate forever:

A young Red girl flees tragedy in her refugee camp, and achieves for herself a new life she could never have imagined.

An ex-soldier broken by grief is forced to steal the most valuable thing in the galaxy—or pay with his life.

And Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile to the sovereign, wanders the stars with his mentor, Cassius, haunted by the loss of the world that Darrow transformed, and dreaming of what will rise from its ashes.

Red Rising was the story of the end of one universe, and Iron Gold is the story of the creation of a new one.
