Morning Star

I recently finished Morning Star, the third book in a trilogy by Pierce Brown.  I loved the first book, Red Rising and while it wasn’t as good as the first, also liked the second one, Golden Son.  I was excited to see how the story ended with this third book.

All of the books follow Darrow, a low class young man in a futuristic society based on class, where everyone is divided into colors based on their position.  Darrow is a Red, the lowest, but he is chosen to go undercover as a Gold, the highest, to start an uprising.  In this third book, the war has begun.

The book moves quickly and contains a lot of action and especially in the later half is a quick page-turner.  The ending of the story is satisfying and gives a fitting ending to the characters that have been followed throughout the books.
