“Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BUZZFEED, AND SHELF AWARENESS

“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 lush wilds 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.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Pierce Brown's Golden Son.

The best illustrated fairytales for children!

Once upon a time was a poor lumberjack who had two children, Hansel and Gretel. Unfortunately, he was no longer able to provide for his family and his second wife, who hated the children, said they had to abandon them.
After two unsuccessful attempts, the parents finally managed to get rid of the children, who had to survive on their own. They looked for help and found a strange house, very interesting but also very dangerous...

The collection "Once Upon a Time" offers a new and richly illustrated version of the most famous fairytales.

EXCERPT

Once upon a time, a brother and a sister called Hansel and Gretel lived in a tiny cottage in the forest with their father, who was a poor woodcutter, and their stepmother. Their stepmother was very unkind and said they didn’t have enough food for the children.
One day, she told her husband that he must take Hansel and Gretel deep into the forest and leave them there. “They are old enough now
to take care of themselves!” said the mean stepmother.
The woodcutter who dearly loved his children was very sad. However, he had no other choice but to follow the wish of his cruel wife.
