Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Morning Star (Red Rising, #3)Morning Star by Pierce Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A stunning trilogy. Seriously a different level to most things out there. To rate the whole series I think I need more than the 5 star scale .
I was only telling a friend a few days ago that I avoided Red Rising for quite a while as the level of hype was too much to live up to.
But sometimes hype is deserved and this is one of those rare cases.
I’ll be honest in saying this book is not quite as good as the first two in some small ways but that would be nit picking and Morning Star is still brilliant in its own right.
Some great twists and some very intelligent political thought processes. Brown never takes the easy way out and writes some very difficult passages. And mist importantly you care about his characters right to the finish.
Some authors have difficulty wrapping up a series but the ending is well constructed and wonderfully done.
I’m already looking forward to seeing what Brown does next.
And where can I join the Howlers.

About Paul Walsh

I'm a big fan of fantasy and scifi, which would make up most of my reading but will branch out often enough. Favourite authors vary over time but generally include Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Conn Iggulden, Robert Harris, Karen Maitlan, Kate Mosse, Anne Rice, Philip K Dick, Ray Bradbury. John Scalzi, Mark Lawrence, Pat Rothfuss and a host of others. I'm not the harshest reviewer but will note down a few words on all books I read.
