    This series is without a shadow of a doubt my all time favourite sci-fi series. It has the perfect blend of action, drama, romance, and shock happenings. The story is pretty dark and intense, but that is mitigated by the humor and the undercurrent of hope that ran through the story.

    I felt like the Red Rising trilogy had a near perfect, fantastic, ending but I was still looking forward to this sequel series (despite the dreaded 10 years time jump) because I always felt like this world was so awe

    I felt like the Red Rising trilogy had a near perfect, fantastic, ending but I was still looking forward to this sequel series (despite the dreaded 10 years time jump) because I always felt like this world was so awesome that it had a lot more stories worth telling. So it proved with Iron Gold as it lived up to all my high expectations!

    I say it all the time but I'll say it again Pierce Brown really is my sort of author. His writing is highly engaging and has a beautifully melancholic and poetic feel to it. His books are always intense and exciting and really drag me through the emotional ringer from start to finish. It is great when you find a book where you find the story super exciting and can emotionally engage with the characters and happenings.

    The story in Iron Gold was great. The action picked up a decade after the fall of the Society in the Core and we got to see that establishing Darrow and Virginia's new Republic was no easy endeavour. I feel that Brown's decision to expand the POV cast to include three new characters really helped to flesh out the world building and add more depth to the story. I still love Darrow the most but I did manage to warm to two of the three new characters. The third needs a pulseFist to the face though!

    All in all I loved this one and felt like Brown again got the balance spot on between the triumph and the tragedy. There was some real heart-breaking moments but also some inspiring and hope filled ones as well. It is that sort of balance that makes a great story so great!

    Rating: 5 stars. An easy rating to give. It is only January but I have my doubts I'll read a better book anytime in 2018 than this gem.

    Audio Note: I had some serious concerns going into Iron Gold when I heard that Recorded Books had decided to limit Tim Gerard Reynolds role in the book by brining in three new narrators to voice the three new POV segments. The only positive was that they had retained TGR for the Darrow POV segments. I'm still puzzled by why they thought this was a good idea as TGR is one of the best narrators out there and his performance of the original Red Rising was fantastic. One of the best performances of any audio I've ever heard (and I've listened to hundreds of audios over the years!). The guy was so good he enhanced the quality of an already great story with his ability to convey emotion with his voice and his excellent voice acting.

    It goes without saying that TGR's Darrow POV section of Iron Gold were as fantastic as one would expect. His Apollonius interpretation was stand out good!

    So how did the new narrators get on? They were a bit of a mixed bag.

    John Curless - He did the Ephraim POV segments and I thought he was fantastic. Almost as good as TGR with his ability to convey emotions and he really got the tone and humor of the story. If he had a flaw it was that his character voices, while pretty good, were just not quite as good as TGR's. Still, he gets the thumbs up from me and I'll be happy to listen to more books he narrates in the future.

    Aedin Moloney - She voiced the Lyria POV segments. I felt like she did an OK job. She struggled a little with the set voices and accents of the established characters but seemed to get the tone of the story and was also quite good at conveying emotion with her voice. She over did a few bits but all in all I still felt like she did an OK job.

    Julian Elfer - The guy voiced the Lysander bits of the story. I felt like he was the real weak link and the only narrator not up to the job. He was pretty awful. The only good think he had going for him was that he was well-spoken and his voice was a great fit for an upper class Gold. The downside is that he was a poor voice actor and just read everything in a monotone. He even failed to get the humor which sounded decidedly off and stilted via his poorly timed delivery.

    At least the production by Recorded Books was not awful. To their credit the had the new narrators retain the accents used by TGR in the original RR trilogy. It is a minor thing but really makes a difference as it helps with consistency.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pre-Read moans!

    I just checked Iron Gold on my Audible pre-orders and was aghast to see that a few more audio narrators have been added to Iron Gold. Why oh why is my luck with audios so bad in the last few months? Tim Gerard Reynolds did a FANTASTIC job with the Red Rising trilogy so what idiot thought it would be a good idea to limit his role in this 4th instalment?

    I was super looking forward to this one but now some of the enthusiasm has been sucked right out of me. I'm becoming increasingly convinced that the person running Recorded Books has never actually listened to an audio series in their life to understand the value of consistency of interpretation!

    Once again,

    's POV and storyline touched me the most. He is the ultimate tortured hero and author spares him nothing. After everything that Darrow sacrificed, it broke my heart to see him doubting himself and blaming himself for so many things.

    Among new main characters,

    has become my favorite. She is direct, always does what is need to be done. She goes through so much but remains empathetic towards others. She may be naive and inexperienced but she has genuinely good heart, strong backbone and she is a person of high morals. And I have to respect her for that. Together with Darrow's POV, hers was the most emotional one.

    's storyline was a fascinating one. Not because of what he did or said but because of the situations he found himself in and people he met. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of Lysander himself; there is something about him that rubs me the wrong way. But all in all, I'm very curious to see where Pierce Brown will take his character in the next book.

    The last one of new characters,

    , is another proof that Pierce Brown likes his characters to be complex, complicated and never ever fully good or fully bad. I'm going to repeat myself but the die is cast and I am super excited to see how Pierce Brown is going to play this game when it comes to Ephraim.

    All that said, I have to admit that Iron Gold didn't have the same wow factor as previous books. This book felt like it was "only" setup for bigger things to come. And to imagine that there are even bigger things to come, I truly cannot wait for

    There haven’t been any changes to my list of favorite authors of all time for a year now. I’m gratified to say that after reading his

    trilogy and

    For those of you who don’t know,

    is the continuation to the highly acclaimed

    trilogy which has now become a saga; making this book in reality the fourth book in the

    The story takes place ten years after the end of

    and to tell you what the book is about—spoiler-free, of course—there’s really no better way than to let Pierce Brown himself explain it:

    There you have it. And as for my thoughts and review, here it goes.

    I found the plot to be incredibly compelling; it was extremely hard to put down and the pacing was executed masterfully. Most of the chapters in this book tended to end on a cliffhanger and there wasn’t any moment where I was bored, not even for one bloodydamn page. There’s one very good reason for this: multi-POV. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved the first trilogy; even though it was told solely through Darrow’s perspective in first person narration, it was utterly magnificent and immersive. However, if Pierce really intends to continue this series with another trilogy, I seriously don’t think another one-character POV would be a good idea; it would be tedious to say the least. This is why the shift in narration to a four-person multi-POV was a brilliant move. Seeing the plot unfold from several characters’ perspectives with different backgrounds and personalities provided the series with a new level of depth and complexity in regards to both the characters and the scope of the story. I found the story grand and majestic, and I enjoyed it immensely. Pierce Brown really knows how to create a dramatic, dynamic, and cinematic experience in his book, and every character’s POV was engaging and addictive in their own way. It's also worth noting that although

    is the biggest installment in the series so far, it was still way too short. Each word kept me turning the pages late into the night and Pierce also managed to connect the few loose ends from

    seamlessly. It’s a book about liberty, about penance, about politics, about love, and many more aspects that contain a heavy resemblance to our current society. This is actually one of the many reasons why I really love

    ; even though the series is sci-fi and the majority of the time it doesn’t take place on Earth, it was incredibly scary, relatable, and it was almost prophetic how the mayhem in this book and series seems to always correlate with our world.

    I’ve talked already about the brilliant narrative change to multi-POV, but to be honest I had my doubts about it at first due to the fact that these four POV’s were all done in first person POV, not in third person POV which I’m more used to. However, Pierce Brown nailed it with finesse. Not only was the story more epic in scope, more importantly, he managed to make each character have distinct voices and personalities, even when all four of them were done in first person narration. Although it took me a while to warm up to one of the POV, once I was halfway through the book I found myself loving all four POV's equally. These characters’ emotions, their rage, friendships, loss, love, dilemmas, were easily felt through each word that Pierce carved; it was emotionally impactful for me. All the characters are flawed and feel real, complex, and believably burdened with the past and the weight of their choices and actions; they did questionable things and I love this book more because of that. Humans are complex by nature and this book goes to show just how complex each individual can be, especially when they are all trapped in the cycle of death. It’s safe to say that I’m emotionally invested in all the characters, both main and side.

    One of the thing that made this book differ from its previous trilogy is its action scenes. I’m not talking about the quality, because those have always been exhilarating and breathtaking ever since

    .

    is the same, as pulse-pounding and intricate as ever, but the difference is that the amount of violence/gore in this book.

    contained a lot of violent scenes, and they were all written elegantly and it made all the scenes more powerful. I absolutely love them; the set-pieces, the buildup, the execution, they were all wonderfully well-written.

    Pierce Brown also did a spectacular job with his world-building in the book. It was enlightening to read all about what has happened in the past ten years, to both characters and the settings within the solar system. We also get to see the characters’ journeys on several different planets, and the settings, atmosphere, and weather were all vividly described in order to enrich each reader's experience within the series’s universe. However, my favorite part of the world-building was the cultural differences between the colors, how everything changes and yet still the same at the same time. And the implementation of Japanese culture in House Raa family was especially delightful for me to read. For example: the terms gahja (outsiders) that the House Raa used, derives from the word gaijin, which means foreigners, and they all uphold the code of honor and respect that is really famous in the Japanese culture.

    Before Brown’s

    trilogy became a saga, the division between those who loved and those who hated the series stemmed primarily from Brown’s prose. Fortunately, I fall on the loving side. I always think of Pierce’s prose as evocative, philosophical, compelling, vivid, and elegantly raw and destructive. In my opinion, he is the only one who can pull off first person present tense magnificently. Plus, in the prologue of the book, we also get to see a fraction of what kind of story he can tell if he writes in third person perspective narration, and in my opinion it was transcendent. I know it was short but it made me wish that one day we’ll get to see him write a full novel in a multi third-person narration. Regardless of my wishful thinking, this once again goes to show just how talented he is as a writer.

    The year 2018 has only just begun and I already know

    will be included not only as one of my favorite reads of the year but also as one of my favorite books. In my honest opinion—together with

    —this is tied for the best installment in the series so far as I love them both equally.

    is truly my favorite sci-fi series of all time and I highly recommend this to all sci-fi fans. Plus, it seems like the wait for the sequel to this book,

    , won't be too long as Pierce is planning to release the book within the same year, sometime this September!

    One final thing. I’ll leave this selection from the acknowledgments in the book for all of you to read because trust me, Pierce Brown understands his readers. Who knows? This could be the extra push for those of you who are trapped in the Bermuda Triangle of Fantasy (George R. R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Scott Lynch) to invest in the

    So here we are, back in the elaborately ruthless world of

    Honestly, it's not often that I find myself with much hope for continuations of series that have concluded. Many times it's easy to see when new material is...

    Money/deals/obligations have the potential to create sticky situations. I loved the first three

    books & I was worried that this new addition may be unnecessary, even if the prospect of continuing on with such an amazing tale was exciting.

    But let me just say,

    is

    doesn't write like he's in it for the wrong reasons. He writes like he has a story to tell,

    10 years after the events of the original trilogy, the social & political structure of this world is balanced on a knife's edge. Rebellions, criminal organizations, and the looming threat of the Ash Lord plague the visions of peace & prosperity Darrow once held for the future.

    Given the time gap, there's a healthy amount of nostalgia present here with many old faces making a meaningful return & the next generation taking up the mantel to make their own way in this world ravaged by war. Resulting consequences of actions from the past ripple through the story, touching every corner in a way that feels

    The new characters whose perspectives we follow are all

    compliments to Darrow. Together they create a complex circle of interconnection that forces the reader to be on constant swivel when deciding who to support & who to condemn. As situations pan out, it becomes clear that characters on many sides of this conflict are represented,

    A set up like this is only improved by the choice of sticking with First Person POV for each character, which is probably the last thing I thought I'd ever hear myself say. But

    one of the biggest strengths of Brown's series is how he forges the bonds between the readers & his characters, and I believe he is aided by giving readers a glimpse into the minds of his central cast.

    Speaking of characters, many people seem to dislike Darrow but for me, his flawed are exactly what make him such a magnificent character. In fact, I can't think of

    who upsets me repeatedly, does literally

    I'm screaming for him not to do, and yet somehow still manages to gain my sympathy & wrangle my emotions into knots. Darrow is his own man, slag what I or anyone else thinks. And that's why I love him, even when I want to

    him.

    Brown's talent as a writer is on full display here. Not only does he beautifully capture the

    that fuels a war driven society such as this, but he creates situations that resonate deeply with his audience. Scenes of blood & gore that are

    there for simple shock value,

    there for purpose of a momentary gasp or a whispered

    The the juxtaposition of cruelty & elegance stands starkly unique against the backdrop of this violent world he has called forth. Each scene is penned with such an individual significance that they will surely be replaying over & over again in your mind.

    One of my

    aspects of this series is how Brown finds interesting ways to paint a detailed picture of a high-tech society

    I've personally struggled a lot with Hard Science Fiction as a written genre because I tend to get bogged down in its densely worded walls of unnecessary sci-fi jargon.

    as a series is not Hard Science Fiction, but the advanced tech of the era is critical to the story being told & I appreciate that it is communicated in a way that gives me clear imagery

    assuming I'm in need of a physics lesson.

    The only reason I knocked off half a star (more like a quarter of a star if I'm being honest but I don't normally divide my ratings down that far) is because I felt myself being just a little less interested in Ephraim's point of view when compared with Lysander, Lyria, and Darrow. His arc definitely paid off in the end but if I absolutely

    to pick a least favorite POV, it'd be his. He's still a great character with a solid presence in the book, but he stood a little shorter in the shadows of the others.

    This is truly one of my absolute favorite series. It's taken the concepts & formulas we've seen before &

    These are the ideas that resonate with humanity or else we wouldn't see them told over & over in so many different ways.

    is just the newest masterpiece to devour in the

    series, and it's

    what I needed to read at this moment in my life.

    I don't keep stained editions on the same shelf, I just wanted to add these to see what they look like next to each other. Of course they are falling over! I made me a special edition shelf & I have a shelf just for stained books.

    OMG!!!!!! I have just had a panic attack! It came! My Howler Box! Clink the link below the pic to see the unboxing. THE BOOKMARKS PEOPLE!!!!! (Also one of my 2 black sprayed/signed editions came)

    So much of this book was talking out loud to Darrow. Mainly, "What are you doing?"

    Obviously, I'm not going to spoil anything with all of that stuff.

    All of my babies are having babies =) Well, two of them more so than others. I wouldn't expect less of those two =)

    Some of the main characters that came back took a little bit of a backseat to some new characters. And when I think I might find one I'm going to love, they get killed so what's the point. Although, I really want to see what's going to be up with Tongueless. I'm very intrigued by him.

    I did fall in love with Lyria. Her story starts out horrible right from the start. I felt really bad for her. And even though she does some dumb things, I think she's learning and going to be a great character. At least she better be!

    I know some people might be upset over someone's death in the book but for some reason I don't think it really happened. Pierce Brown doesn't usually do it so calmly and by that I mean, sort of push it off to the side and moving on. Nope. It didn't happen. We shall see in Sept!!!!

    Yes! PB is the man! Who puts out the second book of the trilogy in the same year! THE MAN that's who. Now watch, I just jinxed it!

    Anyway, we have some other characters come back from the original trilogy and take a front seat. They were good but all I wanted to focus on was Sevro and Darrow. I love Sevro so much and I'm so afraid something is going to happen in the next two books or at the end of the third one. Pierce Brown you better not! I have so many scenario's in my head that I can even think straight. But, it will be what it will be.

    This book is more of a picking up after the wars sort of book. You have some people that were lied to, you have some people that turned traitor, you have people that keep doing stupid things, you have other people that do more stupid things. You have people being set on fire. That was fun. Evil person gets set on fire. We have underwater stuff that I thought was cool. We have some blood and gore as usual. Not tons but still. I'm not sure Darrow taking on an evil person to help him take another person out was such a good idea, but it worked. Now lets just see what havoc they are going to start in the next book. Or they could just sit on one of the planets and be all nice. Right!!

    Either way, I loved the book. I loved being with my peeps again. I actually want Sevro and Victra to have their own book with some of the howlers in it with them. They need to have their own planet and just do the crazy things they do =)

    I really, really, really hope Darrow comes to his senses. What is wrong with you Darrow?

    I just don't know what to do with that ending. I hope it's going to end well and maybe Darrow knows something we don't know. I feel like I don't know who he is and I felt that way in the very beginning. We shall see...

    Happy Reading!

    Reading Iron Gold, you can safely infer that George R. R. Martin is an author Pierce Brown has sought inspiration from. The book is dark, full of betrayal, lost hopes, war, violence, regrets, etc. There is a little humor sprinkled here and there, but make no mistake: this is no light-hearted sci-fi fantasy.

    Reading Iron Gold, you can safely infer that George R. R. Martin is an author Pierce Brown has sought inspiration from. The book is dark, full of betrayal, lost hopes, war, violence, regrets, etc. There is a little humor sprinkled here and there, but make no mistake: this is no light-hearted sci-fi fantasy. I guess the previous books weren’t either, but this one struck me as being particularly grim.

    In his author description here, he says he explores themes with power and “men and women finding their inner strength when all seems lost.” You will definitely see a lot of that here.

    Iron Gold is a powerfully written story that takes place ten years after the end of book 3. Those years have seen unending war and the Republic has grown jaded with unfulfilled promises made by the new Sovereign (Mustang) and the Senate (led by Dancer).

    Almost everyone is disillusioned and the glory of the Reaper has faded. We are introduced to two new character, Lyria (a young Red female) and Ephraim (a middle-aged professional thief). They are hard to like, to be honest, but kind of grow on you by the end.

    The story switches to several POVs. Along with the two new characters, Darrow has one, Lysander has one (he is twenty now and still travels with Cassius, both hiding in exile). You get a lot of “gray” in this one. No one is all good.

    The pacing was great, although the author is a fan of leading you up to a breaking point in the plot and then immediately switching POVs so you have to wait to get back and see what happens with the other plot.

    The Telemanuses are back, Sevro and Victra, Clown and Pebble. We get to see what has happened in the past decade. I won’t go into any more of the plot because… spoilers. I really enjoyed this and Pierce wrote the heck out of this tome. He has mastered this world and the level of further world-building is impressive.

    I’m not giving five stars because I am an emotional reader and this was just a downer for me. I also didn’t really like the new characters and Lysander can go jump off a bridge. There were definitely highlights, but overall, it gets a solid four stars, and I will be reading the next one because now I just have to know what happens.

    Buddy read with the

    Update 3/10/17: From a Pierce Brown email list message: Meet LYRIA from Iron Gold.

    From Pierce's Facebook on February 5, 2017:

    Bump for that cover, though. I just noticed it had one! Purty.

    August 2017? *dies*

    "Brown intends to explore this topic more in depth with his next trilogy called Iron Gold, the first book of which is due next year. Taking place a decade after Morning Star, and featuring the characters “blessed enough to have survived the first trilogy” (there’s a George R. R. Martinesque level of character reduction in Red Rising), Iron Gold will focus on what happens after an empire is destroyed and opportunists rush in to fill the vacuum."

    Ok. Well.

    I'm a

    fan of the original trilogy and was incredibly happy with the way Brown ended it. Fantastic job. I was so grateful he didn't shit the bed on that one.

    But then I heard there was a new book coming out with new characters.

    Ok, ok. Well,

    characters sounds cool.

    So, I went into this sort of expecting it to have a

    Now, I'm not saying that's what I

    have expected! But for whatever reason, that's what I

    expect.

    Aww. I'm just kidding. Kinda.

    So, a bunch of this is about Darrow, and how sucky his life is because he's chosen to chase the Ash Lord instead of retire and hang with his family. <--um, what?! No. No, no, no, no, no.

    Why is he even in this? He did his part, and I don't want to read more about him.

    And because of that, I didn't really enjoy any of the stuff about Virginia or Sevro, either. Just stop already with those guys, ok?

    I honestly

    need to know what happens to my favorite characters in the future. If I want to imagine them out in the stars still battling evil, I will. If I want to imagine them tucked into bed safely every night, I will. If I want to imagine that they broke up with the love of their life and then got killed by their evil son, I will.

    And I'm terrified that's where this series is headed.

    Just give me new characters and tell me a different story, please.

    I also get that a lot of people feel much differently about things than I do, and my opinion isn't the only one that matters. I'm not saying they're

    , either. It just makes me very nervous when an author goes back to a successful series that has already supposedly ended, because rarely have I ever enjoyed what they did with the new stuff. <--personally!

    But hey, I realize it's the author's choice...

    Now, I would not have rated this a 3 star book based on my fears of what

    be.

    My god, I'm not a

    savage.

    Anyway, it wasn't until about the 60% mark that I wasn't somewhat bored with the plot, and it wasn't until I hit the 90% mark that stopped putting it down for

    at a time.

    Here's the thing, there are books that are well written that I just have to force myself to read. An example of one I'm reading right now would be
