The One Flaw In Morning Star And How I Would Have Fixed It
Morning Star was an amazing conclusion to the epic Red Rising series. And while there are parts I liked more and didn’t like as much as previous books, I still gave it a perfect score in the end. Because books can have flaws and still deliver an amazing story. But there is one part of Morning Star that really stuck with me as being a mistake and I can only discuss it while spoiling some things. So this is your warning. [WARNING: AFTER THE BREAK WE’VE GOT SOME MAJOR MORNING STAR SPOILERS SO GO READ THE BOOK ALREADY AND THEN COME BACK.] Continue reading The One Flaw In Morning Star And How I Would Have Fixed It

Want To Read The First Three Chapters of Morning Star (Red Rising Book 3)? You Can…With A Catch
Morning Star will be published in February, 2016 but if you’re longing for a fix and want to read the first three chapters then author Pierce Brown will let you. Provided that Golden Son wins the Goodreads Best Science Fiction award for 2015. Pierce posted the tempting offer–a win for chapter leaks–on his Facebook page today and you have until November 23 to cast your vote. If you already voted in earlier rounds those votes don’t count so head over to Goodreads immediately, cast your vote, and get everyone else to vote for it as well. Because February is a lifetime and a Star Wars movie away.
Morning Star Set To Conclude Red Rising Series In February 2016
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.
