“You could call [Pierce] Brown science fiction’s best-kept secret. In Morning Star, the trilogy’s devastating and inspiring final chapter, . . . he flirts with volume, oscillating between thundering space escapes and hushed, tense parleys between rivals, where the cinematic dialogue oozes such specificity and suspense you could almost hear a pin drop between pages. His achievement is in creating an uncomfortably familiar world of flaw, fear, and promise.”—Entertainment Weekly
“There is no one writing today who does shameless, Michael Bay–style action set pieces the way Brown does. The battle scenes are kinetic, bloody, breathless, crazy. Everything is on fire all the time.”—NPR
“Morning Star is this trilogy’s Return of the Jedi. . . . The impactful battles that make up most of Morning Star are damn near operatic. . . . It absolutely satisfies.”—Tor.com
“Excellent . . . Brown’s vivid, first-person prose puts the reader right at the forefront of impassioned speeches, broken families, and engaging battle scenes . . . as this interstellar civil war comes to a most satisfying conclusion.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A page-turning epic filled with twists and turns . . . The conclusion to Brown’s saga is simply stellar.”—Booklist (starred review)
“Multilayered and seething with characters who exist in a shadow world between history and myth, much as in Frank Herbert’s Dune . . . an ambitious and satisfying conclusion to a monumental saga.”—Kirkus Reviews

About the Author
Pierce Brown is the New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising, Golden Son, and Morning Star. While trying to make it as a writer, Brown worked as a manager of social media at a startup tech company, toiled as a peon on the Disney lot at ABC Studios, did his time as an NBC page, and gave sleep deprivation a new meaning during his stint as an aide on a U.S. Senate campaign. He lives in Los Angeles, where he is at work on his next novel.

Okay, have to admit- I *cried* at the ending (no spoilers), in typical Brown writing I had to just -STOP- to consider the repricussions (sp) of what 'happened/s'. Dang.
This is some of the single BEST world building I have ever read, the complexity, the intricasies (sp), the vision of how it works (and does not work). The author paints an amazing picture with words- tiny details, the whole psychology of the razors... a fighting style, new uses, moves...I truly believed they were not only real, but had existed in 'real time' for centuries. The caste system, the never ending politics, the betrayal(s!), the tiered loyalties, the trust, the (gasp) love!
In each book there was at least 1 or 2 moments where I gasped out loud. Where I had to stop reading and simply process what had just happened. Was I PISSED at some of the twists and turns? YES!!!!!!!!!!! but when you get that worked up... it is some amazing-freagin' writing!!! WOW.
Highly recommended and I'm pre-ordering IRON GOLD with deep satisfaction and anticipation.
