Trilogies can be a big disappointment especially when the first book is exceptionally strong as it is hard to sustain the same quality over three books. Divergent illustrates my view. While I loved the first book, the second installment was far weaker and the third was just awful. Thankfully, Pierce Brown did a great job. Golden Son is as good as Red Rising.
I don't want to give a short introduction in case you have not read Red Rising. But, Golden Son mixes the same elements: adventure, politics, passion and violence. It makes for a great read! My problem though is that now I need to wait Christmas 2015 for the final chapter.
