Description
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * 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 next chapter in the Red Rising Saga: Morning Star. ITW THRILLER AWARD FINALIST * "[Brown's] achievement is in creating an uncomfortably familiar world of flaw, fear, and promise."-- Entertainment Weekly 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. Praise for Morning Star "There is no one writing today who does shameless, Michael Bay-style action set pieces the way Brown does. The battle scenes are kinetic, bloody, breathless, crazy. Everything is on fire all the time." --NPR " Morning Star is this trilogy's Return of the Jedi . . . . The impactful battles that make up most of Morning Star are damn near operatic. . . . It absolutely satisfies." -- Tordotcom "Excellent . . . Brown's vivid, first-person prose puts the reader right at the forefront of impassioned speeches, broken families, and engaging battle scenes . . . as this interstellar civil war comes to a most satisfying conclusion." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A page-turning epic filled with twists and turns . . . The conclusion to Brown's saga is simply stellar." -- Booklist (starred review) Don't miss any of Pierce Brown's Red Rising Saga: RED RISING * GOLDEN SON * MORNING STAR * IRON GOLD * DARK AGE

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)"--,Provided by publisher.
