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.

The end....or is it?

Like previous installments of the red rising trilogy this book has plenty of bone crushingly depressing moments and spine tingling exciting twists, only more. The author continues his go-to style of waxing poetic to the point of making the reader consider suicide, then moving at breakneck speeds around plot twist corners so sharp you cannot see them coming. Overall very good but the end leaves one filled but wanting, like dessert with out dinner, as almost all loose ends are tied up with the largest left unsatisfactorily unresolved, (spoiler alert) ----will it all descend into chaos now that the society has been broken. To really do justice to the readers another book is needed, a mature, well thought out discourse on the political ramifications raised throughout the series.----

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.

The story is ok but OMG is the author long winded!

The story is ok but I REALLY struggled with it. It is so looong winded and so many characters. It was hard at times to who was who.

I wasn't even that invested in the main character. He just kept yammering on and on. Argh!!! I literally skipped to the end, the last three chapters, just to confirm I knew what would happen. For the most part, I was right.

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.

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 .

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

Good concept. Didn't like the execution.

I thought that this series started strong with an entertaining premise and a speedy pace. However, I felt like it never came together and got progressively worse as the story continued.

I guessed that it was rushed to print because the continuity and world building was confusing to me and I sensed the need for better editing.

Then again, if you liked the Hunger Games, you might like this series. I did not like either.

Kind of a let down

This story fell flat in this third book. I was getting a little bored as in parts. The ending was decent, but was glad it finally wrapped up.

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"

Hervorragender Abschluss

Ein richtig gutes Buch und eine richtig Gute Buchreihe.
Auch das letzte Buch der Saga lässt den Hörer nicht mehr von den Kopfhörern weichen.
Sehr zu empfehlen!

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.

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.

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!

Disappointing ending

Great narrator but the book feels like the author just wanted it to end. Overall this leaves a bad taste to the otherwise decent trilogy.
