Dark Age Spoiler Chat: We Need To Talk About Lysander

Major Dark Age spoilers ahead!

One of the reasons the Red Rising series is so satisfying is how layered the story is. On the surface, it might be easy to see one good side and one evil, but zoom in a tiny bit and the pieces quickly begin to separate into something much more complex.
