The heart-stopping excitement of the Hunger Games meets the pulse-pounding majesty and complexity of Game of Thrones, all wrapped up in the visionary beauty and melancholy of Blade Runner... A shot of adrenalin for your imagination. * Star Magazine * RED RISING wouldn't exist without the countless classics it takes its cues from, but this great debut builds a formidable fortress upon their familiar foundations, making such interesting alterations along the way that its piecemeal parts are essentially rendered unrecognisable. Like mankind has in the past, Pierce Brown reaches for the stars, and mostly hits that monumental mark. * Tor.com * With all of the tension of The Hunger Games and heady dose of savagery that lives somewhere in the space between The Lord of the Flies and ancient Greek mythology that revels in the violent deeds of the deities of old, RED RISING is compulsively readable and exceedingly entertaining. The blend of familiar and unfailingly effective machinations that clash with the stark new reality Brown has created make this tale a must for both fans of classic sci-fi and fervent followers of new school dystopian epics. * Fantasy Review Barn * It has hints of Harry Potter and Hunger Games, but it is its own animal. And it is not YA. The writing is excellent and the story is better. This is one terrific fantasy book, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. * Terry Brooks * Incredible Sci-Fi Cross Between 'Hunger Games' And 'Enders Game' Pulls It Off * Idigital Times * RED RISING is what The Hunger Games should have been. * Fiction Vortex * Pierce Brown's relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. * Rising Shadow * Pierce offers a Hollywood-ready story with plenty of action and thrills * Publishers Weekly *. Pierce Brown is the author of Red Rising, the first installment in a science fiction trilogy. Though Brown was born in Denver, Colorado, his origins are a little more diverse, having called seven states home (Colorado, North Carolina, Arizona, Iowa, Texas, Washington, and California). Now twenty-four, he splits his time between Seattle and Los Angeles. Before becoming a full-time writer, Brown spent time working as an executive aide on a U.S. Senate Campaign, a script runner at ABC, a freelance web producer, and eventually an NBC Page. His degree from Pepperdine University is in Economics and Political Science.. Darrow is a Helldiver, one of a thousand men and women who live in the vast caves beneath the surface of Mars, generations of people who spend their lives toiling to mine the precious elements that will allow the planet to be terraformed. Just knowing that, one day, people will be able to walk the surface of the planet is enough to justify their sacrifice. The Earth is dying, and Darrow and his people are the only hope humanity has left. Until the day Darrow learns that it is all a lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations, by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down at Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought. Until the day Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their society..

Satisfying, yet hasty It is a worthy conclusion of the trilogy. Darrow keeps evolving, adapting to the new reality of the war, and the story lives up to the expectation, avoiding the easy, direct plot. However, in the final arc, that is, the conclusion of the last book of the whole trilogy, the story is unaccountably hurried, and it leaves an uncanny feeling of inconclusiveness. That being said, I totally recommend it, as I couldn't put it down until I had finished it :)
Just what it needed Great end of the trilogy where we have seen all the characters grow within the war. This last book solves all the missing puzzles that were missing, letting you understand every character and the motivation for their actions.
Devastador pero adictivo Seguía de cerca la obra de Pierce Brown y esta saga me pilló por banda, desprevenido y totalmente desprovisto de las defensas para ella. Te destroza por dentro, juega contigo como quiere, es una montaña rusa extrema de emociones y narraciones. De verdad, de mis mejores lecturas de este año.
Epic One of the best sci-fi book series I've ever read. Epic history, great characters and hard to put down. Congratulations to the author, and thanks for that incredible universe he shape.
Breathtaking A real masterpiece!! Pierce Brown's final book in this triology had great expectations from the start and has not disappointed its readers!! Truly recommended.
Enough twists and turns to rival even A Song of Ice and Fire With any trilogy there is always the worry that the end will not live up to whatever expectations we have built over the first two books. But in this case you need not worry. Morning Star continues the ravaging pace set by its predecessor and if you found Golden Son difficult to put down, you will most certainly have similar problems here. The third instalment of this series begins with Darrow at his lowest. The war is no longer a civil war between golds, but a clash of colours across all of the solar system. For me, the most extraordinary thing about this book is that I really could not predict a single thing - an extremely hard thing to achieve in this day and age. There is no black and white here. Every single character is unpredictable, every single one at risk of adding themselves to Pierce Brown's increasing list of victims. The twists and turns and shock throughout rivals that of even A Song of Ice and Fire. Utterly enthralling. A brilliant end to a brilliant series.
Fantastic book to round off the trilogy Initial reaction: AHHHHHHHHHHH!! I've been waiting for this ever since I finished the second book and it did NOT DISAPPOINT. Third books in a trilogy often suffer from too much plot compressed into too little time, too many threads unsolved and unnecessary gobbets of happy ending stuck in right at the last minute. Thankfully this did none of that. Yes, the plot is fast-paced, but let's be real it's been fast paced the entire trilogy, and it still makes time to cover everything thoroughly. Thinking back, there are so many moments of foreshadowing or partial realisation that all pull together later on to make things fit into place. There's so many twists and I was utterly terrified for all my favourite characters all the way through because people were dying left, right and centre. The thing is that I love all the characters, even if I don't like them. Everyone is well-rounded out with motives and motivations, backstory, little character flaws and cracks in the facade. The plots go every which way and there were several twists that had me internally screaming (internally only, because I mostly read whilst on public transport, and it's unseemly to yell CASSIUS YOU BASTARD in public). I need to go re-read the entire trilogy again.
but surprisingly I felt better giving it time The long awaited conclusion to the Red Rising trilogy finally arrived in the beginning of February. People all over the world were eagerly waiting to read what had happened to Darrow and the uprising after the events in Golden Son. I was one of those people. I pre-ordered the book as soon as I could and practically screamed when it turned up on my doorstep the day of its release in the UK. I had expected to devour it in a day, but surprisingly I felt better giving it time. Brown has created an amazing trilogy, with Morning Star as a solid end. Well, it’s not really an end is it? Soon after its release, Brown revealed that he is writing another trilogy that focuses on life in Darrow’s world after what happened in Morning Star. But back to this book. Expectations for the final book in a series are always high and it can be very tricky to get it just right. Morning Star picks up more than a year after the end of Golden Son. The end of Golden Son left many gasping for breath and even more impatient for the follow-up. Things weren’t looking good for Darrow and the Sons of Ares. Brown uses these kind of setbacks perfectly to make the characters grow and develop their relationships a bit more. It’s hard to come back from what most of them went through, but it’s defining how they all deal with it. All of them have come a long way since Red Rising. They are not children anymore and they are now so wrapped up in this war, that the only way forward is straight through. As Darrow puts it: “I am not alone. I am not his victim. So let him do his worst. I am the Reaper. I know how to suffer. I know the darkness.” Almost all our favourite characters share Darrow’s spotlight and those that were lost in the previous books have certainly not been forgotten. Readers favourite, Sevro, livens up the whole book again with his foul language, his crazy plans and his unwavering loyalty. But readers of the series know that what happened in Golden Son will have a severe impact on our favourite Howler. I was glad to see Sevro rise to his full potential in this book (with some guidance from Darrow and his friends). Victra’s fate was unclear and I’m really happy with the road Brown took with her character. She is such an interesting addition to the story and I enjoyed reading about her from the very first moment she appeared. Mustang obviously also plays a vital role in this war. She is easily one of the smartest people in this war and her bond with Darrow is one that was tentatively and delicately explored throughout the book. Roque and Cassius’s storylines also get a satisfying end, something I was a bit afraid of in the beginning, but unjustly so it seems. Brown’s signature plot twists are back again and I have to admit that it’s only because I know his writing and I know how the plot twists in his previous books that I didn’t stop reading at one point towards the end. It wasn’t because something was wrong with the writing or the story, but he almost did something to break my heart. It was only my solid belief in the fact that this couldn’t be all, that there was more to it, that kept me reading. But damn, Pierce, you know how to toy with our emotions. Throughout the book, Brown again succeeded in impressing me with his writing. He wrote some beautiful and powerful quotes like this one: “And I wonder, in my last moments, if the planet does not mind that we wound her surface or pillage her bounty, because she knows we silly warm things are not even a breath in her cosmic life. We have grown and spread, and will rage and die. And when all that remains of us is our steel monuments and plastic idols, her winds will whisper, her sands will shift, and she will spin on and on, forgetting about the bold, hairless apes who thought they deserved immortality.” Morning Star is again a powerful mix between an almost lyrical style and the fluid prose that keeps you flipping the pages. As soon as you start reading, time seems to pass by without you noticing. I was beyond excited when I started this book and it definitely didn’t let me down. It delivered a satisfying ending to the trilogy and all the storylines. I’m curious to see what the next trilogy will bring, though at this point I’m quite happy with how things ended. If you’re still wondering if you should start reading the Red Rising Trilogy, here’s me giving you a firm “DO IT!”. The Red Rising Trilogy is one of the best I’ve read in a while and I can’t recommend it enough.
Solid conclusion to a great series I really enjoyed the first two books in the Red Rising trilogy, would this final book continue to engross me? To be honest, it does have a slightly sticky start. Brown’s forthright pacey style stuttered, and I found the opening pages a bit of a trudge as it seems to backtrack, rather than plunge headlong into the galloping plot. However, I persevered as I had really enjoyed the first two slices of this adventure, and was very curious to see how it would all pan out. About a quarter of the way in, the book picked up pace as Darrow was busy trying to stay alive, lurching from crisis to crisis as the rebellion kicked off around him. I like his character. Brown manages to provide the classic, driven alpha male who nonetheless is assailed by doubts and painfully aware of the consequences of some of his actions. I also enjoyed the fact that although there are regular outbreaks of bloody violence throughout the trilogy – this is not one for the squeamish – those deaths continue to impact on the action, both personally and politically. I like the fact that it mattered when some of the characters died – and went on mattering throughout the trilogy. Once Morning Star found its feet, the plot barrelled forward with Brown’s usual explosive energy. There is also a fair amount of humour running through the story and some moving moments as Darrow strives to hold onto the group of people he has befriended during his roller-coaster progress, though those friendships are constantly threatened by the sense of betrayal they feel at his duplicity. I also enjoyed the dilemma Darrow faces as he becomes the poster boy for the rebellion due to a particular piece of film repeatedly shown to inspire the Reds to rise up for justice. How can he move on from his bereavement and invest in another relationship, when he is defined by his heartbreak and grief? Not that Brown breaks his stride when presenting his character this particular problem – he is too busy creating yet another crushing problem for Darrow to endure. So, did he accomplish a suitably climactic and convincing ending? Yes, he did. It was a fitting conclusion to a really entertaining and enjoyable read – and if you haven’t yet had the pleasure, don’t start with Morning Star, get hold of Red Rising. Pierce Brown is One To Watch.
QUICK SPOILER-FREE REVIEW THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING! I just finished it couple of minutes ago and I think I'm still in shock from what I read. Morning Star is poignant story that crushed me, gave me goosebumps and consumed all my waking thoughts ever since I started reading it. Pierce Brown can tell a story in a way that only very few authors can. Morning Star is a masterpiece. Whole series is a masterpiece. And I believe that this is a story that children of our children will be taught about in the future. Morning Star was out-of-this-world amazing. So all I'm going to say for now is: READ THIS BOOK/SERIES, GUYS! Sci-fi/dystopian genre can't get better than this. Pierce Brown, I'm your fan for life!
