Pierce Brown is incredible. Twists around every corner, a challenging message and a sliver of hope through it all.

Really, though, this book is for the hardcore sci-fi fan. The series was lauded as 'The Hunger Games all grown up,' but there is so much more to it than that. In the final book in the original trilogy, Darrow has to face difficult decisions, the ache of lost friends, and the veil of war drifting over it all. I'm in love with these characters and this world, and I'm so glad a follow-up trilogy has begun.

Strong conclusion to an excellent trilogy. I enjoyed the other two books a bit more, but that's simply because this one was very war-focused and that's not my favourite topic. I do, however, understand why that was necessary within the context of this trilogy - and "enjoyed a little less" is certainly not an indictment of the book.

I think that what I enjoyed the most about this series is that it took a hard look at some of humanity's strengths and weaknesses in a clever way that wasn't overly moralistic. The characters were well developed, and they all had plausible mixtures of positive and negative traits.

The fast-paced conclusion to the *Red Rising* trilogy sweeps the galaxy into full scale civil war. Obviously the lowborn Darrow is a huge part of this book, but I was pleased to find the story shifting to include more about Darrow's friends. Brown's vivid prose is even sharper in this book, bringing us closer to the heart-pounding action. Although I'm sad to reach the conclusion of this ambitious science fiction series, I was very satisfied with the ending!

​​The thrill ride comes to an end. I read through this book expecting to find something that would let me down. It's rare to find a trilogy where at least one entry doesn't fail to live up to the other books. This is one of those rare entries. Even the ending was satisfying, leaving just enough foreshadowing for more material. Which is great, with Brown releasing the first of a new trilogy next year.

If I were forced to find a single criticism, it would be that the three books in the series were a little brief. The trilogy could probably have been divided into two larger books, with the story splitting after the first third of the second book. If I had read them initially upon their release, it would have been a hard wait for more material. It's hard to put these books down once you start reading. But, as all three books are available, it's not a problem for new readers. I can't wait to read more.

I thought it was a great series! It ended as best it could, although the third installment was not quite as prone to making me pump my fist in the air. I did enjoy the theme that his community and relationships are what gave Darrow his "power."

Mostly just a denouement that should have been in the second book of the series. Along with far too much narration and story-telling with no purpose.

Seems to me a person could read the second installment of the series and shrug, go on to other authors, books, series ..... and not lose much in the way of enlightenment and edification.

Morning Star does its job as the final book in a trilogy: it ties up loose ends and provides readers with satisfying closure. It’s easy to see why so many critics liken Pierce Brown’s Red Rising trilogy to the Hunger Games series – if you’re a fan of Suzanne Collins’ work, you’ll enjoy these books.

An interesting end to the trilogy, although it felt much more subdued than the first two installments. Hopefully we get to see more of this universe even though we've reached the end of the reaper's journey!

While not as well paced as the prior two books in the trilogy, this was a worthy conclusion to a very fine series. Fans of Ender's Game who haven't discovered it yet should start with Red Rising!

“Justice isn’t about fixing the past, it’s about fixing the future. We’re not fighting for the dead. We’re fighting for the living. And for those who aren’t yet born.”

― Pierce Brown, Morning Star, Chapter 35
