Morning Star: Book III of the Red Rising Trilogy
Written by Pierce Brown and narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds.
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.
This is definitely the culmination of the story. Darrow is sort of lost here and his friends have rescued him to assist in setting society to rights but there is a persistent problem. The jackal and the Queen are insane. That steerage coupled with the Moon-burning lords forces is going to lead to a lot of collateral damage but it can be done.
Absolutely enjoyed the series and I hope someday it comes to the screen. Five out of five for writing and narration.
