Description

Honor and betrayal fuel a caste-shattering revolution in the action-packed new novel from the number one New York Times best-selling author of the Red Rising Trilogy.

Ten years after the events of Morning Star, Darrow and the Rising are battling the remaining Gold loyalist forces and are closer than ever to abolishing the color-coded caste system of Society for good. But new foes will emerge from the shadows to threaten the imperfect victory Darrow and his friends have earned. Pierce Brown expands the size and scope of his impressive Red Rising universe with new characters, enemies, and conflicts among the stars.

Narration Ruined the amazing series

What disappointed you about Iron Gold?

I despised the new narrators. I just listened to 3 books that were masterfully done, then you give me this. I don't understand why you change it up. Tim was so good by himself.

Too many narrators Mr. Brown

What made the experience of listening to Iron Gold the most enjoyable?

Tim Gerald Reynolds is a master narrator. Reynolds has already developed the voices for these characters in 3 other books. Adding the other narrators takes away from TGR performance and the Red Rising experience. It does not flow effortlessly like the other books and gets confusing. Missed the mark as far as the audible version is concerned.

Audio needs to be balanced

Story is okay, not up to the standards of the first 3 books. The narrators are okay except the audio really needs to be more balanced. If I have it loud enough to hear the quiet parts, the loud parts are piercing. This make sections of the book almost unbearable.

Meh

I absolutely loved the first three books but this was a little lackluster for me. It introduced three new point of view characters with three different narrators, which in concept was a good way to expand the scope of the story but wasn’t executed very well. I honestly didn’t care enough about the new characters for their storylines to hold my attention, save for one. Even Darrow’s chapters were so far removed from the man he was that I didn’t enjoy them. The writing is still beautiful and the world building is still there, but this felt more like the first in a new series in a new time and place than a continuation of the previous. Even then, not much progress was made and it just felt like it was setting up future novels. That is fine for a first book, but not a fourth. I give it a meh and an ehhh.

Inconsistent Volume and Narration

My review is purely on the quality of the audio book. I have some issues with the story as well, but as I haven't finished it yet, I'm willing to reserve judgment.

Overall, the quality of the audio mixing for this book was pretty bad. From chapter to chapter and sometimes even within chapters, there are noticeable changes in volume that force me to adjust the volume far more often than I'm comfortable with.

My biggest complaint about the audio book though, is with the narrators for the Lysander and Lyria chapters. The narrator who "plays" Lysander speaks in a clipped and businesslike manner, rarely lending any sense of drama to even some of the more dramatic sections. There were times when I wondered if he was paid by the word and was trying to get through it as quickly as possible. By contrast, the Lyria narrator seems to only speak in completely frantic or utterly furious tones (even when narrating very simple sections) to the point that her voice becomes grating and difficult to listen to. Both the Lyria and Lysander narrators seem to pay little attention to punctuation, often running over obvious pauses that sometimes make it difficult to follow dialogue.

I certainly understand why there were four narrators for this book given the story structure, I just find their quality quite disjointed. Tim Gerard Reynolds does a fantastic job in this book as in the previous ones and I thought that the narrator for Effraim is nearly as good. It is to the point where I dread hearing the introduction to a Lysander or Lyria chapter because while I find their stories very interesting, it can feel like a chore to get through them.

Great book, fix the audio :c

the narration, the story is all great but the audio volume is poorly balanced so it's hard to hear unless you're in a really quiet environment. the loud parts are too loud and the quiet parts are too quiet. can't really listen to it on the go.

1 narrator please

TGR needs to go back and narrate the entire book. The other narrators completely ruin the experience for me.

Too many narrarators

What disappointed you about Iron Gold?

I prefer to have only one person narrate the book. The multiple narrarators detracted and distracted from the book so much that I turned it off after the beginning of the 7th chapter. Booo and shame on them for thinking this was a good idea.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Iron Gold?

Poor performances.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Why change a good thing? Tim Gerard Reynolds did a fine job of the first three books. What made them think it would be a good idea to add an additional 3 persons?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I'm severely disappointed in the portrayal of this book enough that I want a refund. It was not the way I intended to enjoy this book.

Who the Bloodydamn Chose These Narrotors?

Tim Gerard Reynolds is the most perfect gorydamn narrator for the poetry Pierce Brown writes. I cannot even focus on the story, the other narrative is so obnoxious. AUDIBLE FIX THIS!!!

Too many cooks in the kitchen

How could the performance have been better?

I understand the appeal of a cast of narrators but a part of me wishes Tim Gerard Reynolds narrated the entire book. He is so intricately entwined with the original trilogy that is startling when you first hear a new narrator early in the book. Honestly, I want a solo version with only Tim....that or switch it up and form a super-group of Tim Gerard Reynolds, Kate Reading, and Michael Kramer...could you imagine?

Great Book. One of the speakers is beyond terrible

Like the series before the book is full of fast action, detailed charaktes in a complex world.
All male charactes are spoken real good.

Sadly the female speaker (for the character Lyria) is so bad that i realy couldnt take it). Somehow she tryes to make the voice so heavy with emotion in every single moment that is read - even when nothing happens at all. It is extremely tiering and annoying!
I skipped every single of Lyrias chapers thereafter. Luckly this does not hurt the story much - still I can t beleave that a book this great is tortured liek this.

good story, mixed narrators

the story is less focused than the previous books, but nonetheless engaging. having multiple viewpoints is giving it some fresh air.
the narrator's for lyria and lysander didn't do a very good job of giving moments gravity. example for lyria: in the camp when it gets hectic, lysander at the end when someone says "farewell. "
it seemed rushed. I listened to their parts at 0.9 speed which helped. I'd say slow down a little, let us linger on moments!

still enjoyed it immensely though :)

Großartig

Es ist nicht einfach die Qualität während einer langen Buchreihe aufrecht zu erhalten.
Jedoch ist Iron Gold ein weiteres hervorragendes Buch. Ich hatte sogar den Eindruck, dass die Erzählung diesmal noch etwas klarer und überlegter aufgebaut wird.

Etwas ärgerlich ist nur der harte cliffhanger am Ende des Buches. Hoffentlich ist der Nächte Teil bald verfügbar.

Like the Hobbit movie to the LOTR movies

The first three bocks are masterpieces that stole sleep away from me and just took me on an amazing journey.

Unfortunately this book is different and not for the better. Instead of only one main character you now have four with different story lines some of which converge. Similar to Game of Thrones except it doesn't work as well here.

The characters feel flat and in addition to that some of the important characters from the previous books are simply killed "off screen".

The list of the flaws could go on, but the biggest flaw of this book is that for long stretches it is just plain boring by telling us stuff we already know from the previous books and forcing negative emotions from four different characters down our throats.

The only redeeming factors are that we get more of the world and some of the plots are actually interesting, like the syndicate part. Other than that quite a dissapointment in my oppinion.
