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. Ender's Game meets The Hunger Games in this, the first in an extraordinary trilogy from an incredible new voice.

Descripción DELACORTE BOOKS FOR YOUNG READERS, 2014. Paperback. Condición: New. Brand New Book. INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER ?Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.??Scott Sigler Pierce Brown?s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender?s Game by Orson Scott Card. ?I live for the dream that my children will be born free,? she says. ?That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.? ?I live for you,? I say sadly. Eo kisses my cheek. ?Then you must live for more.? Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow?and Reds like him?are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity?s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society?s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
