As a Red, Darrow grew up working the mines deep beneath the surface of
Mars, enduring backbreaking labor while dreaming of the better future he
was building for his descendants. But the society he faithfully served
was built on lies. Darrow’s kind have been betrayed and denied by their
elitist masters, the Golds—and their only path to liberation is
revolution. And so Darrow sacrifices himself in the name of the greater
good for which Eo, his true love and inspiration, laid down her own
life. He becomes a Gold, infiltrating their privileged realm so that he
can destroy it from within.
A lamb among wolves in a cruel
world, Darrow finds friendship, respect, and even love—but also the
wrath of powerful rivals. To wage and win the war that will change
humankind’s destiny, Darrow must confront the treachery arrayed against
him, overcome his all-too-human desire for retribution—and strive not
for violent revolt but for a hopeful rebirth. Though the road ahead is
fraught with danger and deceit, Darrow must choose to follow Eo’s
principles of love and justice to free his people.
