Honor and betrayal fuel a caste-shattering revolution in the action-packed new novel from the number one New York Times best-selling author of the Red Rising Trilogy.

Ten years after the events of Morning Star, Darrow and the Rising are battling the remaining Gold loyalist forces and are closer than ever to abolishing the color-coded caste system of Society for good. But new foes will emerge from the shadows to threaten the imperfect victory Darrow and his friends have earned. Pierce Brown expands the size and scope of his impressive Red Rising universe with new characters, enemies, and conflicts among the stars.

This is going to come to a shock for a lot of people and I am definitely in the minority, but I HATED this book. I loved the original trilogy so I was a little wary when I saw there was a follow up book. So I put off reading it for a while, when I picked it up it ended up being one of my most disappointing books to date.

First of all, the ONLY gay character is a villain?? Are you serious? That made me so mad. This book kinda of ruined the original trilogy for me. It felt like everything they did and fought for in the original series meant NOTHING. Darrow actually sucks so much in this book and I am NOT going to read any more of this series. It's been ruined for me.

Also, not gonna lie, I was so BORED listening to this audiobook. Why was it so long? This book was really not for me at all. AT ALL. I did like that the audiobook was a full cast, that was cool. But it didn't really help when I just felt betrayed by the author.

A lot of people who love the series love this book, but I wouldn't recommend if you did. For me it destroyed my love of it.
