RED RISING TRILOGY – BOOK 3: MORNING STAR – BY PIERCE BROWN

Hello Robert,

Meet the conclusion to this bastardly series.

Title: Morning Star51nnve8he2l
Series: Red Rising Trilogy; Book 3
Author: Pierce Brown
Genre: Fantasy, Sci-fi
Audience: Adult
ROTS Setting: Alternate Future,
Synopsis: Darrow survives the coup, but is taken by the Jackel. What you imagine the Jackel does he does and Darrow suffers. Darrow is broken down to nothing and then must rebuild himself into a new man, or the man he once was.
Recommendation: I do not “Recommendation:” this book. It built up my hopes and then dashed them all away. To build them up again and then have them crashed on the rocks of reality. Of course, this book is only really for adults. It is nice though to have the series finished,  now at least I can sleep at night.

This was like nothing I have ever read before. This is not the kind of series you can read and then go back to reading YA/Youth books. It is so intense, so action packed, so crazy that I don’t have words to describe it. It is a fantastic series one of a kind and brutal like Game of Thrones….but in space. This is not like a Sanderson work that I would just recommend to anyone, though. Only people who are ready for a nail biting, sleep depriving, nausea-inducing rollercoaster of a series.

Like I pride myself on reading things that I usually could recommend to Mom and Dad. Not this time. This is not like a Sanderson work that I would just recommend to anyone, though.

Oh, you probably want to know something about the book….. if you’ve already ready books one and two then you’re too late to be saved. You must finish the series. If you have yet to start then go back and read book one, but do not touch book two unless you are committed. Sorry, that was a little off topic. The book is flawless, the characters are dynamic and interesting with meaningful struggles. The setting is rich and you get to glimpse even more of that depth here in this book. The plot just tore me up as a person so I guess that is good. The descriptions are vivid. All in all the series is fantastic.

Lastly, I would like to say that although this is just a beautifully crafted series. It is not what I was promised when someone recommended it to me. I was expecting a revolutionary war, with dancing reds that fought with swords in a vicious elegant dance of blood and death. With mostly normal humans and villains. Thankfully not this time.

Jared

PS. Pierce Brown I if you ever write another series I will not buy it. At least not until the whole thing is out. Then I’ll have to take a whole month off just to read that series and do nothing else. Because you wrecked me for a while there.

  1. I found myself nodding in agreement as I read your review: your feelings mirrored mine – “intense and crazy”, indeed, you could not have found better words to describe this saga, and the rollercoaster emotions that go with it. And I’m already virtually onboard for the sequel series: it might be something akin to Stockholm’s Syndrome 😀 but I need to keep reading about this world…
