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 conclusion to the Red Rising Trilogy: Morning Star.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.Advance praise for Morning Star “Multilayered and seething with characters who exist in a shadow world between history and myth, much as in Frank Herbert’s Dune . . . an ambitious and satisfying conclusion to a monumental saga.”—Kirkus Reviews Praise for Pierce Brown and the Red Rising Trilogy Red Rising “[A] spectacular adventure . . . one heart-pounding ride . . . Pierce Brown’s dizzyingly good debut novel evokes The Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies, and Ender’s Game. . . . [Red Rising] has everything it needs to become meteoric.”—Entertainment Weekly “[A] top-notch debut novel . . . Red Rising ascends above a crowded dystopian field.”—USA Today “Pierce Brown has done an astounding job at delivering a powerful piece of literature that will definitely make a mark in the minds of readers.”—The Huffington Post Golden Son “Brown writes layered, flawed characters . . . but plot is his most breathtaking strength. . . . Every action seems to flow into the next.”—NPR “In a word, Golden Son is stunning. Among science fiction fans, it should be a shoo-in for book of the year.”—Tor.com “The jaw-dropper of an ending will leave readers hungry for the conclusion to Brown’s wholly original, completely thrilling saga.”—Booklist (starred review)

Series: Red Rising Trilogy (#3)
This slaggin' series has made my eyes sweat more than any other in a long (I'm talking not since Harry Potter long) time. It's so.... You connect with the characters. All of them. You feel for the bad guys, even. Everyone has their struggle. They all have something that you can connect to. Even the ...
This is the third (and final) installment in the Red Rising saga. But a new book is coming out in January (Iron Gold), taking place ten years after the events of Morning Star. I don’t know why I did not pick this up earlier. I’ve read Golden Son in January 2016 and absolutely loved it and was so ex...
The trilogy ends on a solid note, an impressive effort by fairly new author Pierce Brown. Brown does a magnificent job of describing the conflict and pain Darrow feels as he escapes capture and reunites with his friends and colleagues to form the backbone of the Red Rising Rebellion (I made that phr...
Finałowy tom trylogii brutalnie odarł mnie ze złudzeń, zarazem raniąc moje idealistyczne serce. Że nie ma wielkiego zwycięstwa bez wielkich poświęceń, to każdy wie. Ale „Gwiazda Zaranna” próbuje przekonywać, że potrzeba jeszcze więcej. Trzeba też w jakimś stopniu zaprzedać własną duszę. Nie tylko za...
Note: You really need to read the previous books in this series to understand this book. Book 2, Golden Son, left us on a hell of a cliffhanger. Luckily, Book 3 picks up where things were left, which was right in the middle of a mess. Our hero-to-be Darrow, the Reaper, is in desperate straights. Thi...
