Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the epic next chapter of the Red Rising Saga, the #1 bestselling author of Morning Star pushes the boundaries of one of the boldest series in fiction.

They call him father, liberator, warlord, Slave King, Reaper. But he feels a boy as he falls toward the war-torn planet, his armor red, his army vast, his heart heavy. It is the tenth year of war and the thirty-third of his life.
 
A decade ago Darrow was the hero of the revolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But the Rising has shattered everything: Instead of peace and freedom, it has brought endless war. Now he must risk all he has fought for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself?
                 
And throughout the worlds, other destinies entwine with Darrow’s to change his fate forever: 
                 
A young Red girl flees tragedy in her refugee camp, and achieves for herself a new life she could never have imagined.
                 
An ex-soldier broken by grief is forced to steal the most valuable thing in the galaxy—or pay with his life.
                 
And Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile to the Sovereign, wanders the stars with his mentor, Cassius, haunted by the loss of the world that Darrow transformed, and dreaming of what will rise from its ashes.
                 
Red Rising was the story of the end of one universe. Iron Gold is the story of the creation of a new one. Witness the beginning of a stunning new saga of tragedy and triumph from masterly New York Times bestselling author Pierce Brown.

    It made me so sad that Darrow lost himself. I just can’t

    I read the first three and wasn’t sure about this. I could not put it down. Characters were well done. I just placed the order for next book in series (spoiler there is another one after this).

    The first book of a follow up trilogy bears many burdens - carry the beloved story arc of the first set, and set up the plot and characters for the rest of the story. On my first read I didn’t appreciate the cadence of this book, but on the second read it all clicked together and fulfilled what I wanted to see: more depth, more layering, and more nuance on a familiar set of characters and relationships. Brown’s characters are mature, flawed, and human on every level. Loved this book!

    I read the first trilogy and the expectation was that this would be a mediocre book with its moments powered more by nostalgia than any merit of its own. Wrong. The book is mesmerizing in its handle of drama, the maturity of character, insights, and the sweeping panorama of it’s worlds and battlefields. I only dread the potential disaster of a movie adaption.

    Not sure about this not exciting talk, I read books to enjoy my time and I enjoyed my time. At the end I was immediately butthurt I have to wait until “September” for book 5.
  • Not his best.

    I’m a huge fan of Brown, but this installment was much less exciting than Red Rising and Golden Son. It would seem that Low Colors have less fun. Ephraim’s story arc is off to a really underwhelming start, Lysander isn’t much better, and Lyria was sort of neglected.
  • Fantastic
