Morning Star – Book 3 of the Red Rising trilogy by Pierce Brown

20% of the ebook: Phobos is the largest pincushion man has ever built. And the disparity of wealth between the inhabitants of the Needles, the tips of the buildings, and the Hollow inside the moon’s rock, borders on hilarious.

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.


I have really enjoyed the first two books in this series, and was keen to get hold of this, the third in the series. It has started off with Brown’s customary action-packed style and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Review to follow…

    • Well I loved the first one – the 2nd and 3rd are action-packed and full of fighting and double-dealing. But if the first one didn’t do it for you I don’t expect you’ll be bowled over by the rest of the trilogy.

      • No – the Hunger Games vibe is not repeated in any way throughout the rest of the series, although there is a sense of rebellion throughout. I enjoy the fact that Darrow often doesn’t prevail and suffers some really shocking reverses. So if that was your concern, then go for it:)

  1. I absolutely loved Red Rising but I still haven’t gotten round to reading Golden Son yet (despite it looking forlornly at me from the top of my reading pile!) Glad you’re enjoying it! 😀
