Staff Reviews


Darrow is a Red, one of the lowest of the low – designed, bred, and conditioned to serve. After his wife was martyred for daring to dream, he was carved and made Gold so he might infiltrate Society and bring the whole thing tumbling down. And he was well on his way until … et tu, Roque? But you know all of this. You’ve read Red Rising and Golden Son. So where to begin here? Can’t spoil the surprises, not me. No plot points, no real clues. Suffice it to say, many bloodydamn things happen, people Rise and people Fall … and nothing on Mars, nor in the Heavens above and beyond will ever be the same again. Is it as good as the first two? One word: Yes! More words? Sure: From the page-turning action and adventure of the best of Edgar Rice Burroughs, to the twists and turns and absolute gravitas of Frank Herbert and George R.R. Martin, to the utter eruditeness of Euripides, and to the plotting and plots of Machiavelli, it is all here. Nothing left behind. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even wet your pants. Morning Star has all that you expect, and oh so much more. The entire trilogy is impressive and extraordinary, and its conclusion will rock you to your core. Too gushing of an endorsement? Well hell, boyo … Howlers gotta howl!

Okay, perhaps one more clue, wafer thin:

 

A man thinks he can fly, but he is afraid to jump. A poor friend pushes him from behind. A good friend jumps with. – Lorn au Arcos

Description


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Red Rising thrilled readers and announced the presence of a talented new author. Golden Son changed the game and took the story of Darrow to the next level. Now comes the exhilarating next chapter in the Red Rising Saga: Morning Star.

ITW THRILLER AWARD FINALIST • “[Brown’s] achievement is in creating an uncomfortably familiar world of flaw, fear, and promise.”—Entertainment Weekly

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.

Praise for Morning Star

“There is no one writing today who does shameless, Michael Bay–style action set pieces the way Brown does. The battle scenes are kinetic, bloody, breathless, crazy. Everything is on fire all the time.”—NPR

Morning Star is this trilogy’s Return of the Jedi. . . . The impactful battles that make up most of Morning Star are damn near operatic. . . . It absolutely satisfies.”Tordotcom

“Excellent . . . Brown’s vivid, first-person prose puts the reader right at the forefront of impassioned speeches, broken families, and engaging battle scenes . . . as this interstellar civil war comes to a most satisfying conclusion.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A page-turning epic filled with twists and turns . . . The conclusion to Brown’s saga is simply stellar.”Booklist (starred review)

Praise For…


“You could call [Pierce] Brown science fiction’s best-kept secret. In Morning Star, the trilogy’s devastating and inspiring final chapter, . . . he flirts with volume, oscillating between thundering space escapes and hushed, tense parleys between rivals, where the cinematic dialogue oozes such specificity and suspense you could almost hear a pin drop between pages. His achievement is in creating an uncomfortably familiar world of flaw, fear, and promise.”Entertainment Weekly
