So, Ryan has already reviewed Pierce Brown’s Morning Star. Now, while Gabbing Geek Enterprises, a division of a much larger entertainment conglomerate (not really) would prefer not to have repetitive content…here’s some repetitive content in the form of my review of the self-same book.
Amazing, fantastic, awesome news for all Red Rising fans! Pierce Brown has just confirmed to USA Today that his next trilogy will build on the world set up in the Red Rising trilogy. Currently titled Iron Gold, the first book in the new series is coming…oh…NEXT YEAR!!! Thank you, Pierce Brown. You are a treasure and a hero and you’re showing other authors how to do this writing stuff right!
The final book of the Red Rising series was released last week and for the first time in the trilogy I did not make it through the book in a day or two. I found myself dragging my feet, both propelled forward to find out what happens next and also unwilling to see it all end. Because it is all good. So good. And to have a series be this good and deliver on its promise is rare. But I did finish, as these things must. So jump after the break to read my spoiler-free thoughts on the conclusion of this epic tale.
Pierce Brown took to social media on Tuesday to show a picture of the completed manuscript for Morning Star, the conclusion to the epic Red Rising science fiction series. He also revealed that the book will be released in February–a bittersweet announcement since the book was originally delayed to spring 2016 but then moved back to January. This slight delay is still better than the original gap, we’re just all excited to read the conclusion to the series that hasn’t disappointed. There’s still time for you to read Red Rising and Golden Son to catch up so start now! Oh and he’s also coming to Austin and a few other cities for a book tour in February 2016 so expect our own Jenny to add him to the #jenny30 ask some questions about one of our favorite book series soon!
While our efforts to land an interview with Red Rising author Pierce Brown have been unsuccessful and that pesky court order kept me from coming within 100 yards of the Texas Teen Book Festival this past weekend (don’t ask), Mr Brown did conduct an AMA on Reddit today and answered two of Gabbing Geek’s questions. Find out the answers and other interesting tidbits after the break!
On this week’s podcast, listener Wachnroll asked via Geek Mail an innocent enough question. When the podcast bleeps out bad language, is it just for comedic effect or did one of our beloved podcasters turn a blue phrase?
Watson had the answer which I will reveal after the break…
