So, I checked the Goodreads rating details for Morning Star, and apparently, I’m the 1% that didn’t like this book (more specifically, the 1% that gave this book a 2-star rating). You can imagine why I have to force myself to write a review for this.
Okay, this has to be just me. Everyone seems to love this series but for some reason, I just don’t see it? I really didn’t want to hate this book, but honestly, I can say a little bit that I somewhat expect this from the events of Golden Son. I don’t know. I guess when all your favorite characters all head downhill then this is literally what you’re supposed to expect.
So after Darrow
Basically, I already spoiled myself for this book, because, duh! Darrow always wins!
There was a lot more “go, go, go!” in this book. It was all action everywhere, all the time. So much, that sometimes I couldn’t keep up with it! I will say that I understood what was happening here a little more. That’s probably because I read Golden Son, so that would make sense. But there was just a lot of
and that didn’t even work out half the time, so . . .
Honestly, if you love the Red Rising series, great for you! I can definitely see what people would love about this! And if you read my review to Golden Son, then I mentioned that I was in the mood for the political tension that was happening throughout the book. I just wish that I enjoyed this series as much as everyone else did. I don’t know, I’ll just say that this series wasn’t for me. Apparently, Pierce Brown is writing a sequel trilogy to this, which revolves around the consequences and the aftermath of Morning Star, but I’m not really interested.
