After the horrifying events that occurred at the ending of Golden Son, Darrow has now been at the mercy of the Jackal the past year. The Reaper is now barely a shadow of himself, as he struggles to get through each day in the never ending darkness.
Golden Son picks up two years after the events at the Institute and Darrow is now under the service of his enemy Nero au Augustus. His final exam goes wrong and he loses against Cassius’s brother, Karnus au Bellona in a space battle.
Under the surface of Mars, a young Red, Darrow works in the mines. The lowest cast, the Reds are mining helium-3, as they believe they are making the surface of Mars habitable. The world of men is divided in a strict hierarchy that has placed Darrow and his fellow Reds at the bottom. At the other end, are the Golds - almost godlike figures that make the stronger and better cast, they rule society through fear and intimidation.
