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.
Red Rising Trilogy
I thought I would share a list of some of my most anticipated releases for 2016. These are all must haves. Books that have me giddy with anticipation and ones that I know I will devour on release day.
To spice things up on Wednesdays between reviews, I am going to share ”Recipe and a Book Recommendations.” Today I am sharing a salad that is so easy to make the whole family can be involved. It’s yummy and nutritious. If you haven’t read Pierce Brown’s Red Rising fantasy trilogy you are in for a treat. Red Rising his debut novel rocked the reading world and offers a rich tale for young and old. It made Caffeinated’s top ten list for 2014 and won several awards. Golden Son the second in the trilogy released this week. I cannot recommend this series enough! From the writing to the world Brown weaved magic. You know that book you wish everyone would read? Yep, that is this series for me. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy…
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 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.
