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.

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...
