I'm a huge fan of the Red Rising series, so I had to read this graphic novel prequel. It was very well done. The illustrations depict the mood of the series perfectly: the darkness, the bloody fighting scenes, and the emotional torture. I read a couple of reviews that commented on the sketchy style and lack of detail in the illustrations, but I think it fits the mood and story perfectly. The storyline was interesting, fast-paced, and as violent as the books.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series even more now.
