Description

For a decade, Darrow led a revolution against the corrupt color-coded Society. Now, outlawed by the very Republic he founded, he wages a rogue war on Mercury in hopes that he can still salvage the dream of Eo. But as he leaves death and destruction in his wake, is he still the hero who broke the chains? Or will another legend rise to take his place?

Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile, has returned to the Core. Determined to bring peace back to mankind at the edge of his sword, he must overcome or unite the treacherous Gold families of the Core and face down Darrow over the skies of war-torn Mercury. 

But theirs are not the only fates hanging in the balance.

On Luna, Mustang, Sovereign of the Republic, campaigns to unite the Republic behind her husband. Beset by political and criminal enemies, can she outwit her opponents in time to save him? 

Once a Red refugee, young Lyria now stands accused of treason, and her only hope is a desperate escape with unlikely new allies. 

Abducted by a new threat to the Republic, Pax and Electra, the children of Darrow and Sevro, must trust in Ephraim, a thief, for their salvation - and Ephraim must look to them for his chance at redemption.

As alliances shift, break, and re-form - and power is seized, lost, and reclaimed - every player is at risk in a game of conquest that could turn the Rising into a new Dark Age.

Sound volume

I sure wish the sound engineers had put all the narrators at the same volume

Changed Narrators!?! Trash Move Amazon/Audible.

WTF. Lysander had the best voice and this new guy obviously didn't even listen to the other books because he didn't even attempt to pronounce the names of people or places correctly. The recast ed two characters in fact. Just pay them what they want. We sure pay enough for these books!!!!! I am very disappointed in Audible. Very disappointed indeed. It is very hard to listen to. Save your money and read the book. This was just pathetic.

Least favorite so far.

As much as I looked forward to this book I was a little bit disappointed by time the end came. It felt too....disjointed. As if side quests kept popping up to interrupt the main story.
Even if they were overall connected to the main plot, it still felt like way too much time was spent focused on them. Like a side story could have been written instead.
Alot of the ruminations from the characters felt like filler to pad out the dialogue. I hope the next book is more tightly focused.

More bloodshed and a new PoV character

The war has spread and it now consumes the entire solar system. Blood and violence are pervasive as the fledgling Republic tries to hang against those who oppose it. Many want to return to the old color based society and others view this conflict as an opportunity to rise to power, so there is no shortage of combatants available.  Like the last book, Iron Gold, this story is told from the perspectives of the same PoV characters (plus Mustang this time) and each of them experiences this conflict from a different location within the solar system. With such a complicated set of battles it will take you some time to get your bearings, especially if it has been a while since you read the last book, but once you get everything sorted out this is another wild ride in a series that remains surprisingly compelling.

The body count rises as humanity tries to find some sort of equilibrium in the aftermath of Darrow's rebellion, and it is his storyline that remains the most compelling of the bunch. The other PoV characters all play key roles in the conflict and some new characters also rise to prominence, including Darrow's son Pax who grows into an interesting character in his own right. Despite a number of big moments that have unalterable impact to some of the main characters, this book is not without some Deus Ex Machina which can be a little unsatisfying. However, if you are a fan of the series then you should definitely pick this one up but don't expect much to be resolved in the big picture. The individual battles are tense and exciting, but they do not bring an end to the overall war, so this series will be moving on to book 6. 

Once again it is an ensemble cast of narrators with each PoV character being voiced by a different person. I found them all to be excellent with Tim Gerard Reynolds remaining the best of the bunch.

Quiet Audio

The book is a good continuation from Iron Gold but the performance is so quiet at times I have to blast it to hear what the characters are saying.

Nails on a chalk board

I have always loved the books, I have listen to them times over because I love the flow, the narrators it was always like music to me, I actually almost giggle when the first chapter of Lysander was to begin then I cringed at the sound of the new narrators voice, its really hard to listen to, its like listening to Count Chocula and Carrie Grant.I just want to know Piece Brown why? I would also like to know why the new pronouncing of Cassia, really sad to see something so perfect broken.

Why??

Should've had Tim Gerard Reynolds narrate the entire book. He is amazing the others are lame.

The hope inspired by the series is gone

Too many characters and overwhelmingly sadistic . No one to like or champion. Uncertain if I want to read the next book. The series should have ended with book 3.

This series has gone full blown Grim Dark.

As my title says, the story has turned really dark, so much so its incredulous how everything that could go wrong does. So much so it takes me out of the story several times. The beautiful prose of the author in this book feels laborious to work through as you start to realize it's going to lead to tragedy.

The performance is flawless and the addition of other narrators gives more life to the story, I'm happy with the change.

The plot suffers from timing, luck, nativity and stupidity of certain characters that its truly unbelievable. I rate it a 3 out of 5 out of respect of the audio performers and the first trilogy. how beautifully the first trilogy was done and the obvious talent of the author gives me enough hope he will drag this story out of the hole it's in. This is part of the whole which is still not finished. I will reserve full judgment of this trilogy or story until it is finished but this book left me feeling very unsatisfied.

Don’t listen to this

I’ve been with this series since the beginning, and have recommended that others read it. I no longer recommend this series. It took a year to write publish and record this garbage. I couldn’t wait for it to end, and now that it has, I feel cheated. What made the series great was thrown out and replaced by Game of Thrones style over the top garbage. Goodbye!

loved the first trilogy and feared the second might falter... more than happy to be proven wrong! Keep it on Pierce.

Um einiges besser als Teil vier!

Der vierte Teil hatte mich etwas enttäuscht, aber Dark Age hat das bei weitem Wett gemacht. Das Warten auf Teil sechs wird nicht angenehm :-)

Probably the best written of the series

First things first, Tim Gerard Reynolds and John Curless are absolute delights to listen to. They are definitely dedicated to their craft. Rendah and Moira were also good, given that they are new voices for already established characters they had a little more baggage to deal with than Tim and John.

Easily the best written of the series and has the most to offer in terms of action, intrigue, and character development in my opinion. A lot of people will not be the biggest fans of it, but not for a lack of development, story, or action and I think that is as far as I can go without spoiling anything.

My favorite of the series so far.

Hervorragend!

Eine grandiose Fortsetzung der Reihe! Ich bin fassungslos. Keine eingefahrenen Wiederholungen von alten Bruchteilen, sondern neu und anders und frisch. Aber die gewohnt hohe und actionreiche Qualität.
