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.

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 made me emotionally engaged as I found myself in aw, out of my seat, mad, sad and happy! sad the series came to an end but there are a few more book added. This trilogy was fantastic! a must read/listen! #Audible1

An awesome ending to a great series

The final book in the trilogy takes you on a wild ride. There are twists all around up until the very end. The story continues to build and holds it own in the series. The scenes in this book and the series have great detail (but not overbearing) and provide a great sense of realism. This book will pull on all of your emotions and is a fitting end to a great series. #Audible1

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.

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.

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.----

Suspenseful, Powerful, Perfect ending!

I had been looking forward to the third installment to Brown's trilogy since finishing Golden Son. I was not disappointed. It was a bit slow starting, but as time passed, the story line became much tighter and focused. Brown did an outstanding job keeping the plot plausible, edgy, suspenseful, emotional, dark (but not too dark). There are some very humorous and even touching moments in the story that are very endearing. The characters are flawed, but what depth in terms of their development. They deal with difficult choices, horrific events, and real loss. Tim Gerard Reynolds pulls out all the stops with this story and treats the listener to another wonderful performance. It is the relationships that have been forged in the first book that make this trilogy so special. The end is wonderfully done, very satisfying. Kudos to the team of Pierce Brown and Tim Gerard Reynolds that have given us a story for the ages.

4 stars denotes "It's great"

Great book, great series. A must read if you've read the other two, but you'll find yourself zoning out a bit in some of the battles. All and all nice third book definitely worth the credit.

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.

Very poor story but a great narrator.

The quality of the trilogy goes steadily down from the first book to this one. I am a huge fan of fantasy and scifi and I am usually a forgiving audience, but here the book feel off my hands in the last 10 chapters. The author seems to repeat multiple times completely artificial crises in the flow of the story. I felt multiple times that the mental process was "I feel the tension is going down and I don't know what to do next, let create a crisis out of the blue and kill one of the main characters, maybe it will mask the weakness in the script". These artificial twists kept kicking me out of the story and wiping out the suspension of disbelief, until I stopped listening 7 chapters from the end.
The narrator on the other hand is really good, he was just not able to salvage the disastrous flaws in the stories.

Dumbest Main Character Ever!!!

I hate such a great narrator had to be a part of this lazy.... writing. How do you continually write the same stupid scenarios over and over and over again. It just starts to look like the author ran out of ideas. What a waste of my time. My reviews are usually more thorough but I have already wasted too many words for this travesty. Pierce, try another formula please.
