Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Morning Star by Pierce Brown was a book I approached with trepidation. My love for this series knows no bounds and I worried that the last book would leave me wanting. Pierce Brown delivered in his darkest book to date as he brilliantly shared this thought-provoking tale of war, friendship and love. Morning Star took a piece of my soul and I gave it gladly.

Golden Son by Pierce Brown

As many of you know, Red Rising by Pierce Brown made my top ten list for 2014. Pierce blew me away with his masterful dynamic storytelling and descriptive world building. It was with trepidation that I began the second book, Golden Son. Could Brown continue to hold me captive in this brilliant world? The answer my friends is yes! Golden Son was stunning as Darrow and his motley crew of colors moved closer to freeing society from its chains. The story was intense, with panoramic views and a flawed hero worthy to be King.

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red Rising is a brilliant dystopian and the first in the Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown. From the depths below Mar’s surface to the hills of Olympus; Brown melded science-fiction, complex characters and outstanding world-building in this tale that left me spent and begging for more. Mini review: Epic world-building, brutal, and enthralling with whiffs of a darker Hunger Games.
