Summary from Goodreads:
Red Rising thrilled readers and announced the presence of a talented new author. Golden Son changed the game and took the story of Darrow to the next level. Now comes the exhilarating conclusion to the Red Rising Trilogy: Morning Star.
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.
The Red Rising Series started off my journay into the world of science fiction and fantasy (it lead to Mistborn) and it was an well crafted series.
The characters, oh my god, the characters. They made this book. My heart was in my throat this entire novel because I was utterly terrified that Brown would kill off characters.
It helped that I just read Golden Son a few months ago because I was to jump right back into the world.
The novel was a mixture of action, love, friendship, and it was read that I had a hard time putting down. The comic moments mixed with the battles, and the shocking twists made the novel stand out.
I'm excited to see more world building and possibly other points of view from the main cast of characters in the next series.
I recommend reading this series even if you are not a huge fan of science fiction. I cannot wait until the next novel in this universe comes out next year.
