Iron Gold by Pierce Brown (August 22, 2017 by Del Rey)
This summer, Pierce Brown will be following up his Red Rising trilogy with the first book a new series that’s said to begin approximately ten years after the events of Morning Star. So far everything’s pretty hush hush, but I’ve heard that Iron Gold will star new characters (though a few from the original trilogy may return) and the story will explore the aftermath of Darrow’s rebellion. Cool, only eight or so more months to wait… *taps foot and checks watch*
The new trilogy takes place after the end of Morning Star and will center on the consequences of the hero’s actions as well as on those folks now living and growing up in a landscape that’s had its ruling order shattered.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the author explains more about plot of the book:
“The new Solar Republic, led by Darrow and Mustang, has replaced the Society on Mars, Earth, and Luna, and is locked in an existential struggle with the remaining Golds of the Core. A decade-long peace still exists between the Republic and the Golds of the Rim worlds, but something stirs in the darkness out beyond the asteroid belt.”
