Description

For a decade, Darrow led a revolution against the corrupt color-coded Society. Now, outlawed by the very Republic he founded, he wages a rogue war on Mercury in hopes that he can still salvage the dream of Eo. But as he leaves death and destruction in his wake, is he still the hero who broke the chains? Or will another legend rise to take his place?

Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile, has returned to the Core. Determined to bring peace back to mankind at the edge of his sword, he must overcome or unite the treacherous Gold families of the Core and face down Darrow over the skies of war-torn Mercury. 

But theirs are not the only fates hanging in the balance.

On Luna, Mustang, Sovereign of the Republic, campaigns to unite the Republic behind her husband. Beset by political and criminal enemies, can she outwit her opponents in time to save him? 

Once a Red refugee, young Lyria now stands accused of treason, and her only hope is a desperate escape with unlikely new allies. 

Abducted by a new threat to the Republic, Pax and Electra, the children of Darrow and Sevro, must trust in Ephraim, a thief, for their salvation - and Ephraim must look to them for his chance at redemption.

As alliances shift, break, and re-form - and power is seized, lost, and reclaimed - every player is at risk in a game of conquest that could turn the Rising into a new Dark Age.

Dark is right! Oh and ignore the dim reviews.

First, I'm aghast at the vehemence and lashing out of reviewers toward the narrators (in the .com reviews). Sure the multiple POV was a change I had to get used too from the first trilogy, but its the performers voices, skill, and talent that made the transition so easy. I barely noticed they swapped a few of the narrators (it being several months since listening to Iron Gold) I found myself excited each time the POV switched simply to hear the voices of the characters. I get it comes down to personal opinion and I'm no voice coach, but I've listened to my fare share of painful audiobooks (looking at you Foundation and Earth), so if I had to guess the anger comes from stubborn fans stuck in the nostalgic days of the institute. Eh, c'est la vie.

That said, wow does Dark mean dark. Sometimes after a listening session I had to take a moment to myself to process what I just heard. I loved it. The book has well paced movement of plot, the flat characters we've come to love or hate played their rolls cleverly, the round characters rotated and translated in intriguing ways, surprise and shock, laugher and tears. It's all there. Wonderful writing, and wonderful performance. Thank you everyone involved, looking forward to the next one.

Performances Greatly Improved

In Iron Gold, book 4, it was an unexpected surprise to hear another set of voices. At first I was very disappointed because they felt very out of place but I did eventually get used to the voice of Ephrim because after the shock of the unfamiliar voices, he was easy to listen too and suited the character. However, Lyria and Lysander were not fit. I did not enjoy listening to their chapters, which is unfortunate because the characters themselves, like the rest of the characters are well thought out and well written.
Fortunately, the performances in Dark Age were much improved by the new actors for Lyria and Lysander and the voice of Virginia fit well too. Of course, Tim Gerard Reynolds has continued to captivate and is still very pleasant to listen to. This book was a fantastic continuation of the series, I do wish the ending had a better wrap up. It felt like it was just cut rather than a cliff hanger. Hopefully book 6 will have a quicker start, to make up for this. Overall I would recommend this series to anyone who likes intelligent characters and a story that has many branches but nothing is random.

Whyyyyyy

Why change lysanders voice to this boringly numbing person. I found myself fast forwarding every chance he came on.

Think Game of Thrones kills off main characters?

Hold my beer my goodman!

These books have always been cracking good scifi but dour and Dark Age goes bleaker.

Oh and the bad guy and good guys keep on switching places without moving.

Best one yet!

Insanely good audiobook experience. Story is 10/10 and the performance brings it to life. Would recommend to any SciFi/fantasy fans.

Great story marred by a terrible production

Whoever produced this audiobook should be fired. It was very evident they did not listen to previous audiobooks in this series, or if they did, they did not care at all about consistency between the books. It significantly detracted from being able to follow an otherwise excellent storyline. While I don’t like that character voices were changed, the biggest issue was the inconsistencies in how different words and names were pronounced not just from book to book but also from character to character. I much preferred the voices of Lysander and Lyria from the previous book, Lysander especially the new voice just did not suit the character. If you listened to previous audiobooks in this series I’m willing to bet you’ll be very disappointed with Dark Age.

Otherwise Pierce wrote another amazing story in the Red Rising series.

Average at best

I felt not as invested in book five as book four. Felt like I needed a break from the series.

Waste of Time

I really enjoyed the first three books, the character development, the word-building, and the plot twists combined were amazing. It should have been wrapped up as a trilogy. Book 4 was okay. This book was terrible. It’s ‘plot twist’ after ‘plot twist’, with so many plot holes it becomes unbearable. He is a great writer, but it doesn’t make up for those plot holes and weird and lacking character development. I doubt I will read the sixth book now.
