I believe I’ve already told you how much I am into this series. I love it so much. And I will keep on raving about this series for a very long time. The last time I had this kind of commitment to finishing a book was when I was reading Queen of Shadows by SJM. And don’t get me wrong, I had read many amazing books since then but there’s something about this series that was so badass. I just knew this series got me whipped. I mean, if the author decides to write 50 more books and decides to publish those in one day, I’m positive that I could be convinced to buy all those books with my inheritance.
Well, if you haven’t read Morning Star yet but read a book or two from this series, I have discussions for Red Rising and Golden Son in this blog. I obsessed over both those books too. I told you I am crazy for these books.
Morning Star is my favorite of the 3 books in this series. Those action scenes in the beginning chapters never get old. It reminds me that this series is fabulous and just reading those few chapters will hook you for the rest of the book. This book killed me, then brought me back to life then killed me, then brought me back to life then killed me and killed me and killed me… SO BAD.
Just to bring me back to life more alive than ever.
The first book was really raw and gritty and rough on the edges in a good way and set a beautiful foundation for the rest of the books. The second one was even more action-packed and could cause a serious heart disease and topped the first book. But man, this last book, I didn’t expect. And while its action scenes are WHOAH, this one was the most emotional one and that gave me strong connection to the characters.
And for a trilogy, the series finished wonderfully. And sure, a few more pages in that epilogue would have been nice but ultimately, I am satisfied with the ending. And I barely see this in trilogies nowadays. More often, they would start off very promising but the last book wouldn’t just justify the whole series.
UPDATE: I was just now informed that there’s going to be more books set in this world and I cannot contain my jubilation because I don’t want to leave Darrow and friends just yet.
I think this book is fantastic and entertaining. Just wonderful, you guys. Honestly, read it.
