Description

Darrow would have lived in peace, but his enemies brought him war. The Gold overlords demanded his obedience, hanged his wife, and enslaved his people. But Darrow is determined to fight back. Risking everything to transform himself and breach Gold society, Darrow has battled to survive the cutthroat rivalries that breed Society's mightiest warriors, climbed the ranks, and waited patiently to unleash the revolution that will tear the hierarchy apart from within.

Finally, the time has come.

But devotion to honor and hunger for vengeance run deep on both sides. Darrow and his comrades-in-arms face powerful enemies without scruple or mercy. Among them are some Darrow once considered friends. To win, Darrow will need to inspire those shackled in darkness to break their chains, unmake the world their cruel masters have built, and claim a destiny too long denied - and too glorious to surrender.

Nearly perfect ending.

Excellent conclusion to the trilogy. Exciting, funny, twisty, powerful and satisfying. Narration remains excellent, great value, long but doesn’t feel it. I am exhausted, emotionally, in a good way. I’m gonna take a breather and try a comedy, then head back in for book 4.

Excellent Ending

Originally, when I listened to the first book of this series, I was planning to hopscotch around between this and another series. In fact, I had already listened to the first book of the other series. That all changed fast once I was drawn into this world. Excellent characters, exciting action sequences, and a top notch narration. This book concludes the trilogy, although there are more books in the series, you could stop here if you wanted. Why you would want to, I have no idea.

POLICTICS, ACTION, BETRAYAL, FRIENSHIP

Very solid series all around. A good mix of everything. Author gets you invested in characters. Bit of a slow start in first book, but well worth sticking it out.

Slow Start But The Best Yet

Best book in the series so far. The last half of the book will have emotionally invested in the characters just in time for the twists and turns. The narrator was great just as he was in the other books. Loved it!

It doesn't get much better than this!

This series broke my heart a million times. It made me forget what I was doing and tune out the world. It made me hold my breath and laugh out loud. This is some seriously good writing. I'm normally not a Sci Fi girl but I'm so glad I tried this out. The world is expertly crafted and I fell in love with the characters. I feel like they are my friends and I'm sad that it's over.

I highly recommend this to anyone who loves an excellent story with believable characters who are flawed and imperfect but make you love them, forgive them, cheer for them and cry for them.

Tim Gerard Reynolds is also one of my favorite readers (why I got this book in the first place actually, along with a good review from someone I follow) and he did an amazing job, as always.

Inside an insecure hero's head

The first 2 books were very good, that made Morning Star a sore disappointment. The story is no longer appealing to a mature audience, as if takes a sharp turn to YA at its worst. The story starts in the crazed head of the main protagonist being tortured and in delirium, and it seems like it never gets out of it!
You have to bear listening to the constant mood swings and insecurities twirling in his head. This moment's cunningly clever hero, is just an adolescent boy 20 seconds later. Also, there are constant reflections about the past events and characters long gone and forgotten "after academy".
The performance is good but slow, I had to speed Audible's speed to 1.25x to avoid the boring storyline.

The end....or is it?

Like previous installments of the red rising trilogy this book has plenty of bone crushingly depressing moments and spine tingling exciting twists, only more. The author continues his go-to style of waxing poetic to the point of making the reader consider suicide, then moving at breakneck speeds around plot twist corners so sharp you cannot see them coming. Overall very good but the end leaves one filled but wanting, like dessert with out dinner, as almost all loose ends are tied up with the largest left unsatisfactorily unresolved, (spoiler alert) ----will it all descend into chaos now that the society has been broken. To really do justice to the readers another book is needed, a mature, well thought out discourse on the political ramifications raised throughout the series.----

I wanted to love it....but

I really wanted to like this series...... but oh my I just wanted to slap them, so predictable , lower class people find hero, he rises in the ranks to become top Hero, he makes friends, lose his friends, always has a positive attitude always thinks the best of everyone gets stabbed in the back over and over and over again all three books same situation , he gets one step forward and he get knocked back two steps , it was everything I could do to get through book 3 .

I do believe the narration was one of the best I've heard lately but the story I can only give two stars, just wasn't my cup of tea .

The narration and content = outstanding

If I would have known how great a series I was about to get into, I would have waited for a weekend where I was not so busy. I blew through these books in 4 days. The feeling of satisfaction I had after reading the last page was sublime. Anyone who has a great imagination pick this book up.

Good concept. Didn't like the execution.

I thought that this series started strong with an entertaining premise and a speedy pace. However, I felt like it never came together and got progressively worse as the story continued.

I guessed that it was rushed to print because the continuity and world building was confusing to me and I sensed the need for better editing.

Then again, if you liked the Hunger Games, you might like this series. I did not like either.

A series of idiotic decisions.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I think the author just ran out of ideas at the end. I wanted to like this book. But when the protagonist keeps falling into the same idiotic traps making the same wrong decisions with SOMETIMES THE SAME F******** people.

Which character – as performed by Tim Gerard Reynolds – was your favorite?

the narrator was flawless!

What character would you cut from Morning Star?

All the stupid decisions. Make bad hard to overcome circumstances. And make it hard to overcome. Not seemingly hard to overcome situations that are somehow easily done. Then a huge debacle of juvenile decisions

Kind of a let down

This story fell flat in this third book. I was getting a little bored as in parts. The ending was decent, but was glad it finally wrapped up.

Gory damn magnificent!

Morning Star, Pierce Brown's thrilling conclusion to the Red Rising trilogy more than lives up to expectations based on the the first two volumes. What begins from the low point with Darrow's capture at the end of volume 2, proceeds through a series of two steps forward and one step back as Darrow must constantly second guess both his friends and enemies while he continues to excel at doing the unexpected. The core of the resolution of the multiple eight balls Darrow finds himself behind is to methodically pick apart the societal hold by exploiting the weaknesses and animosities among the outer worlds, Mars (meaning the jackal) and the core. Rather than a systematic, well executed take-down, the denouement morphs into one potential catastrophe after another until even in the face of eventual victory Brown still manages to surprise with left field turn of events.

The sci-fi elements are muted with no new elements relative to earlier installments and stay well in the background as a supporting role. Beyond the thriller aspects of the storytelling, Brown explores relationships along with differing attitudes and beliefs that drive the main characters around Darrow. Each supporting character, Mustang, Cassius, Sevro, Victra, Roque, Quicksilver, etc. have different, but equally valid perspectives on their drives and ambitions. The intimacy of their various interactions is poignant and moving and is a compelling component of the appeal of the tale. At the same time, Darrow is continually making tough, less than ideal choices that completely satisfy few and leave many worse off than before. In this way, the tale is closer to "real life" than expected, especially in utilizing the "fog of war". Finally, while Darrow succeeds in achieving his overarching goal, Brown leaves the reluctant revolutionist with the unenviable task of remolding society while bracketed by potential enemies and the disillusioned,leaving plenty of fodder for future installments. One glaring omission was the noticeable absence of Harmony.

The narration is simply outstanding with sheer mastery of the range of voices of both genders. Tone, pace, and mood are expertly handled to render a nonstop can't put down attraction that dovetails nicely with the author's "seat of the pants" writing pace.
