Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Darrow would have lived in peace, but his enemies brought him war. The Gold overlords demanded his obedience, hanged his wife, and enslaved his people. But Darrow is determined to fight back. Risking everything to transform himself and breach Gold society. Darrow has battled to survive the cutthroat rivalries that breed Society’s mightiest warriors, climbed the ranks and waited patiently to unleash the revolution that will tear the hierarchy apart from within.

Finally the time has come.

But devotion to honour and hunger for vengeance run deep on. It’s sides. Darrow and his comrades-in-arms face powerful enemies without scruple or mercy. Among them are some Darrow once considered friends. To win, Darrow will need to inspire those shackled in darkness to break their chains, unmake the world their cruel masters have built and claim a destiny too long denied and too glorious to surrender.

Morning Star is set one year after Golden Son and spans about two years. I loved the ending of Golden Son and was very interested in where Darrow was heading in Morning Star.

The ending of Morning Star was the perfect ending to the trails that Darrow had experience through the first trilogy and I am infested to see where Iron Gold and Dark Age go.

The relationship between Darrow and Virginia (Mustang) was my favourite relationship that was established in the books. The brotherhood that Darrow has with Servo (Goblin) and the belief Servo has in Darrow was remarkable to see especially in what Darrow wanted to do to Servo’s society.

The themes of war and politics is definitely at the forefront throughout Morning Star. The politics and societal structure in an important aspect throughout Morning Star and is something that Darrow is heavily aware of as he is trying to break the norm.

In all I really enjoyed Morning Star and I can’t wait to read Iron Gold. I’m interested to see where Pierce Brown goes with Darrow.
