    Description

    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.

    It doesn't get much better than this!

    This series broke my heart a million times. It made me forget what I was doing and tune out the world. It made me hold my breath and laugh out loud. This is some seriously good writing. I'm normally not a Sci Fi girl but I'm so glad I tried this out. The world is expertly crafted and I fell in love with the characters. I feel like they are my friends and I'm sad that it's over.

    I highly recommend this to anyone who loves an excellent story with believable characters who are flawed and imperfect but make you love them, forgive them, cheer for them and cry for them.

    Tim Gerard Reynolds is also one of my favorite readers (why I got this book in the first place actually, along with a good review from someone I follow) and he did an amazing job, as always.

    Gory damn magnificent!

    Morning Star, Pierce Brown's thrilling conclusion to the Red Rising trilogy more than lives up to expectations based on the the first two volumes. What begins from the low point with Darrow's capture at the end of volume 2, proceeds through a series of two steps forward and one step back as Darrow must constantly second guess both his friends and enemies while he continues to excel at doing the unexpected. The core of the resolution of the multiple eight balls Darrow finds himself behind is to methodically pick apart the societal hold by exploiting the weaknesses and animosities among the outer worlds, Mars (meaning the jackal) and the core. Rather than a systematic, well executed take-down, the denouement morphs into one potential catastrophe after another until even in the face of eventual victory Brown still manages to surprise with left field turn of events.

    The sci-fi elements are muted with no new elements relative to earlier installments and stay well in the background as a supporting role. Beyond the thriller aspects of the storytelling, Brown explores relationships along with differing attitudes and beliefs that drive the main characters around Darrow. Each supporting character, Mustang, Cassius, Sevro, Victra, Roque, Quicksilver, etc. have different, but equally valid perspectives on their drives and ambitions. The intimacy of their various interactions is poignant and moving and is a compelling component of the appeal of the tale. At the same time, Darrow is continually making tough, less than ideal choices that completely satisfy few and leave many worse off than before. In this way, the tale is closer to "real life" than expected, especially in utilizing the "fog of war". Finally, while Darrow succeeds in achieving his overarching goal, Brown leaves the reluctant revolutionist with the unenviable task of remolding society while bracketed by potential enemies and the disillusioned,leaving plenty of fodder for future installments. One glaring omission was the noticeable absence of Harmony.

    The narration is simply outstanding with sheer mastery of the range of voices of both genders. Tone, pace, and mood are expertly handled to render a nonstop can't put down attraction that dovetails nicely with the author's "seat of the pants" writing pace.

    SciFi bread and circuses

    Split the atom's heart, and lo!
    Within it thou wilt find a sun.
    -Persian Mystic Poem

    Not great, but good enough. Finished the series. It was popcorn with butter. And, sometimes, what you want is popcorn with butter. This isn't Isaac Asimov or Philip K Dick. Pierce Brown isn't aiming for great SciFi lit. He's aiming for movie rights, readers, and finds an unplowed row between Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, Divergent, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones. It is a steroid Space Opera with the subtlety of a freight train filled with frat boys.

    I think the strength of Brown is his characters and his occasionally artful phrase. His weaknesses is he sometimes runs into SciFi cliche, his plots are fairly predictable, and the whole set-up is far too clean. It was written to be a large-budget movie more than a novel. It was written to sell, too option, and yes read, but not to feed or inspire.

    When I remember they are written more for my teenage kids, I am more forgiving. Not everyone can write with the messy heart of Philip K Dick or the control of Dan Simmons. Brown can write about death and suffering and still make it feel warm and sunny. His prose lacks the gravitas to REALLY pull off suffering. When Brown writes about death, it feels like a teenager writing about sex or a white man writing about racism. I know I'm probably taking this review and the whole series way more serious than I need too. I don't think it breaks any new ground. I don't think the stakes are huge. It is entertainment for the masses. It is SciFi bread and circuses, and I guess that is fine for a couple days. Watching gladiators battle in space is always good for a bit of blood and even made me forget Trump for a couple minutes every day. And that IS a good thing.

    The narration and content = outstanding

    If I would have known how great a series I was about to get into, I would have waited for a weekend where I was not so busy. I blew through these books in 4 days. The feeling of satisfaction I had after reading the last page was sublime. Anyone who has a great imagination pick this book up.

    Inside an insecure hero's head

    The first 2 books were very good, that made Morning Star a sore disappointment. The story is no longer appealing to a mature audience, as if takes a sharp turn to YA at its worst. The story starts in the crazed head of the main protagonist being tortured and in delirium, and it seems like it never gets out of it!
    You have to bear listening to the constant mood swings and insecurities twirling in his head. This moment's cunningly clever hero, is just an adolescent boy 20 seconds later. Also, there are constant reflections about the past events and characters long gone and forgotten "after academy".
    The performance is good but slow, I had to speed Audible's speed to 1.25x to avoid the boring storyline.

    A trilogy that ends on a high note

    I usually have 2 audiobooks going at once since I listen to one book while commuting and another while running. For the most part, the two books stay in their assigned places but occasionally one of the two books will grab my attention and cause me to listen to it continuously across both activities. Morning Star was such a book.

    As this series has gone on I have found myself more and more invested in it. Red Rising was good but I felt that it contained a few standard YA tropes that forced me to keep my distance. Golden Son was better but as the middle story of the trilogy it was a bridge that went nowhere ending with a cliffhanger. That left Morning Star with a built in obligation to build upon the unfinished foundation laid before it and it does not fail to deliver. For me it was the best book of the series.

    Darrow's exploits in this one contain highs and lows alike and he finds that he must make a final determination of the trustworthiness of almost every person in his life. From the dead who helped shape him to the living who still try to manipulate him, Darrow melds all of their influences together with his own opinions to finally become himself. He no longer fights for Eo's vision or Ares' cause but rather for his own reasons. He has all sigils removed from his hands and transforms himself into a simple human that is neither red nor gold. He has no color at all and represents the future that he desires to create for all of humanity.

    Pierce Brown takes you a non-stop wild adventure ride in this one and he keeps you guessing. Sometimes you are in on the plans, and sometimes you are not, but you never lose interest in the outcome. The events build to a final showdown with the Sovereign and every character is eventually forced to pick a side to stand on. Loyalties are up in the air until the very end but this one is no cliffhanger.

    Tim Gerard Reynolds is brilliant once again and without a doubt enhances the written word with his narration. Is this book perfect? No it isn't but I am not going to dwell on any negatives as they are easy to overlook. It grabbed my attention from the start and didn't let go until it was over which makes this the best book of the series.

    Break the chains!

    I wanted to love it....but

    I really wanted to like this series...... but oh my I just wanted to slap them, so predictable , lower class people find hero, he rises in the ranks to become top Hero, he makes friends, lose his friends, always has a positive attitude always thinks the best of everyone gets stabbed in the back over and over and over again all three books same situation , he gets one step forward and he get knocked back two steps , it was everything I could do to get through book 3 .

    I do believe the narration was one of the best I've heard lately but the story I can only give two stars, just wasn't my cup of tea .

    Nobody left to root for

    I loved the first book. I liked the second book. Will not finish the third book. I’m done at the end of chapter 57. Brown’s propensity to kill off main characters bothered me but I kept slogging through. Not anymore. Reality in this world is too depressing to want to escape to this one where every once of compassion and friendship is met with a knife in the back. When you kill off all the lovable sidekicks you destroy the story. On a positive note, Tim Gerard Reynolds is great as usual and the reason I stumbled upon this series.

    Suspenseful, Powerful, Perfect ending!

    I had been looking forward to the third installment to Brown's trilogy since finishing Golden Son. I was not disappointed. It was a bit slow starting, but as time passed, the story line became much tighter and focused. Brown did an outstanding job keeping the plot plausible, edgy, suspenseful, emotional, dark (but not too dark). There are some very humorous and even touching moments in the story that are very endearing. The characters are flawed, but what depth in terms of their development. They deal with difficult choices, horrific events, and real loss. Tim Gerard Reynolds pulls out all the stops with this story and treats the listener to another wonderful performance. It is the relationships that have been forged in the first book that make this trilogy so special. The end is wonderfully done, very satisfying. Kudos to the team of Pierce Brown and Tim Gerard Reynolds that have given us a story for the ages.

    A series of idiotic decisions.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I think the author just ran out of ideas at the end. I wanted to like this book. But when the protagonist keeps falling into the same idiotic traps making the same wrong decisions with SOMETIMES THE SAME F******** people.

    Which character – as performed by Tim Gerard Reynolds – was your favorite?

    the narrator was flawless!

    What character would you cut from Morning Star?

    All the stupid decisions. Make bad hard to overcome circumstances. And make it hard to overcome. Not seemingly hard to overcome situations that are somehow easily done. Then a huge debacle of juvenile decisions

    Emotional Roller Coaster -- and no way out

    I loved the first volume in this trilogy, thought the second volume was even better, and am amazed that the third volume is still better.

    This book should come with a warning, because it will play on all your emotions. I laughed, I cried, and at some point I was not only crestfallen, but really angry with Darrow, the main protagonist. Then I was angry with the author. I stopped listening there and then, so mad was I. Well, I 'had' to know how it all ends, so I picked up my mp3 player again after I had calmed down a little.

    This is the most amazing scifi-trilogy I've ever listened to. The performance was magnificent again, Tim Gerard Reynolds delivered the story exactly like it should be delivered.

    If you haven't yet listened to this book, go on -- but I warn you: you'll be on an emotional roller coaster with no way out. I would recommend listening to the first two volumes first, though, as vol 1 sets the scene, and vol 2 develops the characters, and it all comes together in this final volume.
    I for one look forward to future books by the author.

    Bloody-damn marvellous! Prime narrator, too!

    Die Red Rising Trilogie ist ein in Gänze gelungenes, mitreißendes Sci-Fi Action-Epos, das durch spannende Wenden der Handlung und kraftvolle, ausdrucksstarke Wortwahl besticht. Dabei hat auch vor allem das Können des Erzählers dafür gesorgt, dass ich beim Hören meist nach einer Weile jegliche andere Tätigkeit eingestellt habe und vollends in die Handlung gesogen wurde!

    Death begets desth begets death ...

    Und so wird eine Ungeheuerlichkeit auf die nächste gestapelt. Der Sprecher macht seine Sache gewohnt gut und vielleicht bin ich auch einfach zu empfindlich. Aber für mich ist hier mit der Serie Schluss.

    Awesome finale

    Although it's not perfect it is still epic.

    Sevro made the day, hilarious dialogues and totally epic fights what do you want more!

    Yeah some things really feel wrong throughout the book if you read/listen to it for the first time, but after the second time they make a hell of a lot more sense. So the only thing I really "hated" was the ending. Beautiful but cruel at the same time and somehow rushed.

    One chapter more would have made the deal, sorry but if you plant that bomb at the very end you don't want to fucking rush it - hope we get a flashback or something like that in "iron gold"

    Amazing Trilogy

    Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

    This trilogy really stands out, there aren't many like that. The conflicts are cleverly written and the characters are likable. It's become one of my favorites.
