    Scintillating. Just scintillating. This author seems to really understand the way my clock ticks. If you know what I mean, boyo.

    A bloodydamn spellbinding return to my number one favorite sci-fi series of all time.There haven’t been any changes to my list of favorite authors of all time for a year now. I’m gratified to say that after reading his Red Rising trilogy and Iron Gold, Pierce Brown deserves to be included in the list.For those of you who don’t know, Iron Gold is the continuation to the highly acclaimed Red Rising trilogy which has now become a saga; making ...

    3.5 starsOk. Well.I'm a huge fan of the original trilogy and was incredibly happy with the way Brown ended it. Fantastic job. I was so grateful he didn't shit the bed on that one.But then I heard there was a new book coming out with new characters. Ok, ok. Well, new characters sounds cool.So, I went into this sort of expecting it to have a bit of stuff with the original cast, but mainly it would be about the new guys fighting to make the new Repu...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsSo here we are, back in the elaborately ruthless world of Red Rising. And boy-o-boy was it a glorious return. Honestly, it's not often that I find myself with much hope for continuations of series that have concluded. Many times it's easy to see when new material is... uninspired. Money/deals/obligations have the potential to create sticky situations. I loved the first three Red Rising books & I was worried that this new a...

    1. Red Rising: ★★★★★2. Golden Son: ★★★★★3. Morning Star: ★★★★Reading Iron Gold, you can safely infer that George R. R. Martin is an author Pierce Brown has sought inspiration from. The book is dark, full of betrayal, lost hopes, war, violence, regrets, etc. There is a little humor sprinkled here and there, but make no mistake: this is no light-hearted sci-fi fantasy. I guess the previous books weren’t either, but th...

    "War eats the victors last." SPECTACULAR STORYTELLING! I knew before that Pierce Brown had a great way with words. But with interweaving 4 different POVs into one story, his storytelling skills reached new heights. I was spellbound from beginning to the end and as cliché as it may sound, I could not put this book down. Pierce Brown definitely knows how to make me FEEL while I read his books!Once again, Darrow's POV and storyline touched me the m...

    This series is without a shadow of a doubt my all time favourite sci-fi series. It has the perfect blend of action, drama, romance, and shock happenings. The story is pretty dark and intense, but that is mitigated by the humor and the undercurrent of hope that ran through the story. I felt like the Red Rising trilogy had a near perfect, fantastic, ending but I was still looking forward to this sequel series (despite the dreaded 10 years time jump...

    Ugh, this was achingly good.Marry me Mr. Brown, and feed me titbits from the next book!

    Done in one day, but how long to recover??
  • Celeste
    Full review now posted!Well done, Pierce. This was a bloodydamn phenomenal reentry into a story I thought had come to an end. It was phenomenally handled, and I applaud both your bravery and finesse in this continuation of a series that has already left its mark on the sci-fi world.It’s always a bit nerve-wracking to revisit a series that you thought was ended well. Some authors don’t know how to let a world go and move onto another, and some...
  • Steven
    Thanks to the publisher, Penguin Random House, for providing me with a Netgalley copy of the book in exchange for an honest review as a result of a contest! You'll have to forgive my language, but DAMN YOU, PIERCE. How could you do this to me? Rip my heart out by making the stakes even higher, making me care about even more characters in this incredible world you've built, only to leave fates hanging in the balance and the universe on the brink o...

    Four Stars: ✰✰✰✰ I have a love/hate relationship with Pierce Brown. On the one hand, his books are just ridiculously cool, and they combine so many elements of many genres that I love dearly. It almost feels like a Sci-fi/Space Opera-Dystopian-Fantasy hybrid, and he does a really great job of this, without making it difficult to read. The first Red Rising trilogy is probably one of the most recommendable series that I've ever read - not b...
  • Bradley
    Yup. The man ain't sliding on his storytelling.Expect excellent things. Difficult things. Tragic things. And best of all, NEW CHARACTERS! And old, of course. :) The wheel turns and turns and turns.Yep. I'm a fanboy. It's not just the fantastically detailed worldbuilding or the way the author colors all the planets upon a mythological background or how awesome all the space-opera plays out or the really cool battles or the blood.It's the whole pac...

    This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart “We didn’t prepare for this.” “How do you prepare for a kick in the balls?” I say. “You don’t. You suck it up.” This is pretty much how I felt for the majority of this book. I wasn’t prepared to see our hero  10 years later  still fighting a war that seems like it will have no end. I wasn’t ready for the sins of the past to come back and throw our hero into yet anot...

    3.5 stars In Pierce Brown's 'Red Rising Trilogy' which precedes this book, humans - who had colonized the entire Solar System - were separated into caste-like Color categories. The ruling "Golds" were on top and the low-level "Reds" were on the bottom. The Reds were essentially slaves, who had short brutal lives in the underground mines of Mars. Other Color groups worked as medical personnel, soldiers, police, artists, sex workers, bureaucrats, h...

    Definitely my favorite in this series.
  • Jack +Books & Bourbon+
    Bloodydamn but it’s good to be back with Darrow and company again! Other book commitments kept me from getting on this one immediately upon release, but that’s all water under the bridge now. I’m usually well behind the power curve on new books and series, but I’ve been on the Red Rising bandwagon since the beginning, and the interminable wait between Morning Star and Iron Gold has been excruciating. There are more than a few books that I...

    1st read - November 20172nd read - January 2018Iron Gold picks up the story ten years on from the end of Morning Star, the Rising was successful but there has been a decade of war and although Mars is now free the Republic are still fighting the Ash Lord for control of the planets on the edge of the solar system. Previously the entire story has been told from Darrow's point of view but here Pierce Brown opens up the world even further by introduc...
  • Phrynne
    I found this to be a very heavy read. 600 pages of pain, misery and death cannot ever be described as enjoyable and I like to enjoy my books! Nevertheless the story had a hold on me and I kept picking it up until I had finished it. I really felt bad for Darrow as everything slipped away from him, but he only featured as a part of this book as we kept switching to other people's POVs. At first it was hard to see why these people had popped up but ...

    Ive been anticipating this like crazy. I was so excited to be back in this world with these characters, but I hadnt realized how much of the named and details I had forgotten from the original trilogy. I ended up looking up certain characters and plot points online to refresh my memory. The character list at the beginning of the book helped, but I would have liked more information about each character, like how Eph was Triggs fiancee. I feel l...

    At last it is time for Iron Gold, the continuation of the Red Rising Saga and first of the new trilogy, boy oh boy what a book this is.I was one of the lucky few to get an early copy and I banged through it without really noticing the world around me – I shall not give away any real plot details, fans of the saga will genuinely not want to know until they get there – but suffice to say that Iron Gold is a book that was worth the wait. I’ve ...
