Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?
Because that’s what’s on the cover of Pierce Brown’s Iron Gold sequel, Dark Age. So it seems only fitting that another snake should be added to the mix on Illumicrate’s special exclusive edition of Red Rising Book 5. As you can see in the photo below, this special edition will come with black sprayed edges and a snake stenciled design…
Well, isn’t that just prime? The Slytherin in me approves.
Illumicrate put their limited edition of Dark Age up for pre-order this week. They note that it’s the only UK edition of the book that will feature black edges. (For reference, Waterstones issued a black-edged special edition of Iron Gold in 2018. Goldsboro issued a red-edged edition of Iron Gold.)
Not only will you get the snaky edges with Illumicrate’s Dark Age special edition. Each book will also be signed by author Pierce Brown.
Illumicrate has the book priced at £25.00. If you’re in the U.S. and curious about the exchange rate on that plus the £15.00 shipping., my pre-order today came to $54.30 (including shipping).
As is often the case with special editions, this is a limited-edition situation. So, if you’re the collecting type, you probably want to get it while you can.
