The first book captured my imagination and fascination. An advanced Romanesque society, with Greek mixing as well. Darrow's rage burned bright and hot. Golden Son was enjoyable, and took a second read to get the same enjoyment as Red Rising. Perhaps this book will take another read to get everything from it. I was excited with the first few chapters. Dark, gritty, and full of that fire from the first two. As the book progressed, it became verbose and dragged me through hundreds of pages of focus on meandering. The battles lacked the excitement and depth the first two books had. The ending was what I had hoped to happen, as I read the final pages. I had to read the acknowledgements, to finally understand why things played out this way. Then I agreed it could be no other way. A fitting finish, even if it lacked the things that captivated me originally. I almost stopped at some points, but I had to see how it finished.

This series pulled me in with Red Rising, held my attention with Golden Son, and left me feeling like I was on an emotional Roller coaster with Morning Star. I highly recommend it. There were times that I had to put this book down and step away. It speaks volumes to the writers skills that I was so emotionally invested in the characters and actually felt their losses. It will require a second read soon. I admit to skimming at parts just so I could figure out what happened next. I'm glad I stuck it through, the ending wraps everything up well and left me content as the reader despite (or due to) all of the ups and downs.

First book (Red Rising) is great. Second book (Golden Son) is awesome. This third book (Morning Star) is EPIC! Need I say more?

I read red rising when it first came out and loved it. I loved golden son just as much as the first. I just finished morning star and I am so sad now that it is over. These books are amazing. I tell everyone I know that loves to read to please give these books a chance. You will not be disappointed. The story and the characters are fantastic. Thank you pierce brown for giving us darrow and of course my favorite sevro.

Morning Star is a fantastic end to an amazing trilogy. I cannot recommend these books enough. They should be on everyone's must read list.

It was around this time last year when I had asked Piera Forde (Booktuber/Maximum Ride Mini Web series creator) what she recommend me to read cause I was in a book slump. She told me that I would love Red Rising and Golden Son, and boy was she right. Morning Star definitely did not disappoint in the slightess. I can't wait to "see" what Pierce Brown has next in store.

Action packed and full of surprises. A page turner that kept me up way too late many evenings because I just could not put it down! I'm looking forward to reading his next book in the series.

Best ending to a trilogy, ever.

I really enjoy this series. Especially how each character matures over time and the dynamics of friendship versus politics. The only gripe I have with Pierce Brown's style is that I sometimes wish I could better guess what Mustang, Darrow, or Sevro's thoughts and plans were before they occurred. But on the other hand, that would steal the surprise I got when even their most daring plans, that led them into vulnerable and dire circumstances, ended up succeeding. I cannot wait to read "Iron Gold" when it is released.

I loved the first book, liked the second one but unfortunately I am not over the moon for this one. But somehow I knew I won’t love it just by how Golden son ended. There were a ton of things in it that I absolutely loved but my overall impression wasn’t as good as I hoped for. I took almost a year break between reading the second and third book. Why? Because I was kind of dreading it, I saw where things are heading and it was not the way I wanted it. I’m a sucker for a happy ending and when I see the suffering of one of my fave characters coming it doesn’t fill me with butterflies and rainbows. Also before I start I need to admit that before I even started the first page I cheated and read the last chapter first just for my peace of mind. However looking back it was a mistake because I think it took away some of the intensity of the story for me. Well, whatever. I absolutely love the world building of this series, Pierce Brown created an amazing and really detailed place for his tale. The way the different colors work and just the colonization of the planets and moons, it such a colorful and vivid picture that it kinda impossible not to like. However at this point, alas the third book, I think it’s too big, if there is such a thing that too big world. As you know if you read Golden son the universe explodes in that one, not literally but yes. Everything broadens as the story gets into outer space, but in this book its gets even better because the characters travel even farther and interact with even more colors and I think its stretches, scatters the story a bit because there is no way you can describe so much in one single book without losing something along the way and for me that something was the necessary focus. I still like the story and think that the whole idea behind the world building is brilliant also this thing was just a miniscule part of my problem with it but I also think that it would have benefited more if things got tighten duo a bit. There were two things that amazed me the most and one was the way how the storyline went in a way that we saw practically every side of the war/rebellion. There were losses, wins, helplessness we see our heroes in defensive and offensive position as well, we see them strategize and change their prerogatives. We see the edges of the society and the combining force of a common goal. I really liked how this whole storyline was build up and I think it’s phenomenal and so beautifully complex. It doesn’t just make the plot exciting, engaging and powerful but also makes it so incredibly unpredictable that you hardly can wrap your head around it and you definitely became emotionally invested into it. The other thing that first I though I’m going to hate but ended up loving it is Darrow transformation. Let’s be honest who likes when the hero from an advantageous position from one minute to the next falls into rock bottom? Nobody, but in this case the events and the experiences just made Darrow a better leader and taught him things he needed to know to reach his goal and create a better civilization. His character is one of the most complex, multilayered one I ever read about. He starts out as an immature, unstable boy who need the learn one or two things about the world but as things go along he became a strong and smart individual, however in this book he step backs a bit and his horrible captivity not just humbles him but gives him an insight and makes him even more observant. His ever present

I am not a person that gives a book a long time to captivate my interest. This trilogy I could not get enough of from the very beginning. I would love to see this series as a movie.

Well written and exciting to the last page* It has drama,love,honor of values we hold dear. In it there was betrayal and friends become enemies, and enemies become friends. It had several surprises and twists with a great ending of this series. I can not wait to read Pierce Browns next books including his forecoming "Iron Gold".
