Oh boy, this book … I had some real issues with this book. First off, this is a poor man´s Hunger Games, which doesn´t make this an original read in the first place. And since I´m not a huge fan of the Hunger Games and dystopian books to begin with, this book definitely suffers because of this. ...

From a distance, death seems the end of a story. But when you are near, when you can smell the burning skin, see the entrails, you see death for what it is. A traumatic cauterization of a life thread. No purpose. No conclusion. Just snip. I knew war was dreadful, but I did not expect to fear it. ...

I'm a huge fan of the Red Rising series, so I had to read this graphic novel prequel. It was very well done. The illustrations depict the mood of the series perfectly: the darkness, the bloody fighting scenes, and the emotional torture. I read a couple of reviews that commented on the sketchy style...

A funny thing happened a couple of chapters into Red Rising. See, it didn’t go in a direction I expected based on the synopsis, and just like that, I was hooked. (Gee, an author who is cleverer than the reader, go figure.) Red Rising is phenomenal. Sure, it’s drawing on similar dystopian tropes as...

. . . We didn't prepare for this." “How do you prepare for a kick in the balls?” I say. “You don’t. You suck it up.” "That supposed to inspire me?. . . Darrow's words about the mission he and the Howlers are ill-prepared for also apply to readers of Pierce Brown books. At some point, you have to suc...

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 ...

I’m not a fan of the Red Rising novel series. I think it’s safe to state that seeing that I’ve never successfully made it through the first book without falling asleep. I want to like it – there’s no reason I shouldn’t like it- but the audible version just hits my snooze button instantly. For me, wi...

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...
