What’s on the Red Rising Reading Order?

This Red Rising reading order covers all of the material set in the Red Rising universe created by Pierce Brown. The series consists of an initial trilogy and other spin-off material from that trilogy. Pierce Brown is currently writing a sequel trilogy, and what we know of that trilogy also resides on this timeline. You will also find a prequel comic series and the announced film adaptation of Red Rising on this timeline. Right now, the Red Rising universe is not that big. However, we can expect it to grow a lot in the future, thanks to its popularity. Author Pierce Brown is also very young for a first-time author, so I’m sure we can expect a lot from him.

Where to start reading the Red Rising books?

This is an easy question. Start with the original trilogy: Red Rising, Golden Son, and Morning Star. This is where the series started, and should be the first introduction to this universe.

Additionally, let us know if there’s anything we should change, omit, or add. We love to hear your feedback and your thoughts on these timelines. If you enjoyed this timeline, try some of our others, such as our Riyria timeline?
