Morning Star (Red Rising, #3) by Pierce Brown [REVIEW]


“What is pride without honor? What is honor without truth? Honor is not what you say. It is not what you read. Honor is what you do.”

*BANGING MY HEAD ON THE TABLE*
I DON’T WANT TO LET GO!!! I DON’T WANT THIS TO END! *SOB*
Pierce Brown just blown my mind page by page and every charter has something that will make you feel. From start to finish the excitement never went down!
DEAR MR PIERCE BROWN, YOU ARE MASTER, MY GOODMAN. *bow*

MORNING STAR IS THE GAME OF THRONES OF SPACE. FORGET HUNGER GAMES, FORGET DIVERGENT, FORGET THOSE SCI/FI BOOKS OR ANY OTHER SERIES, THE RED RISING TRILOGY IS THE ‘IT’ YOU’LL LOOKING FOR IN A BOOK/SERIES.



They call me the Morning Star. That star by which griffin-riders and travelers navigate the wastes in the dark months of winter. The last star that disappears when daylight returns in the spring.

ITS NOT REALLY A REVIEW, IT WAS MORE OF A REACTION.


#LIFEGOAL TO MEET PIERCE BROWN.

I think I have more than 50 favorite parts. IT WAS SO GORYDAMN GOOD!
Morning Star reminds me so much of the First Red Rising & Golden Son. It is like repeating what happened on the institute but now it’s real. Then the war… now it’s bigger and more enemies.

Can I talk about the ending again? *grin*
I just love it. It’s like the old saying: ‘there’s always a rainbow after a rain’, it fits perfectly. I think Darrow super deserves that.
We don’t know what is going to happen next but you know what I was so satisfied that I don’t even care about that. That’s for us (readers) to figure out and make their ‘forever’ in our minds.

I don’t have any gripes about the way this series is written. I think this was also the best I have ever read. Not only it was well-written the placement of scenes and where the highlights and the climax of the story. AND DON’T FORGET THE DEATHS. (SCROLL DOWN)
Speaking of the climax… GOSH! THAT NEVER EVER EVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE. I CALL IT ‘THAT CHAPTER’.
#SUPERSPOILER
I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF CRYING –WET EYES AND NOSE–THEN SUDDENLY… *BOOM* IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE I DON’T KNOW WHAT JUST HAPPENED. OH-MY-GOD! I WAS THROWN OF GUARD. NEXT THING I KNOW SEVRO IS DEAD. O.O
And that says everything about the author’s level of writing. It was just sublime! *thumbs up*

I cried a lot reading Morning Star, I cried more than I cried when I was John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, not as hard but more than. No jest, I did. I’ve been a fan of Pierce Brown since the day I finished reading Red Rising (days after it was first published). And then I got an ARC for Golden Son… I was the first ones to finish Golden Son… meaning waiting for the Third Book is more excruciating for me.
After I finish one chapter then another, I was thinking, ‘this is it, it’s happening’. The ending I mean, then my eyes starts to water. That happened for the first couple of chapters.

“...And when I looked out at the Hollows, I just knew, I mean I guess I realized as I was talking that justice isn’t about fixing the past, it’s about fixing the future. We’re not fighting for the dead. We’re fighting for the living. And for those who aren’t yet born. For a chance to have children. That’s what has to come after this, otherwise what’s the point?”–Darrow of Lykos to Sevro au Barca



• CHARACTERS :

o Darrow – duh! He can do anything!
He had this identity issue, he felt like he doesn’t belong, even though everyone (Sons) treats him with respect and they feared him. In a way he felt he was an outcast, he is a Red with the face of a Gold.
Those moments of Darrow with his friends… love them.
Pierce Brown gave Darrow a moment for every one of his friends. (Yeah! Those are some of the most emotional part of this book.)
I also like that even though Morning Star is written on Darrow’s POV I noticed that it was really not all about him. It was well-balanced for characters. They all had their moments.
THEY CUT OFF HIS HAND! Wah!!!!

“Maybe it’s not about what I look like. Maybe it’s about what I do.”–Darrow of Lykos



o Sevro – damn! This kid is mad! LOVE HIM! And I’m going to miss him a lot, well not his smell. HE IS THE MOST LOYAL ALLY AND FRIEND OF DARROW.
He’s wearing Darrow’s eyes.
He got married. THE LEADER OF HOWLERS GOT MARRIED? HELL YEAH THE GORYDAMNED BOYO GOT MARRIED!!!
The first part where’s he’s kinda mad with Darrow… and I felt like he really wants to be be a leader just like his (dead) father (Ares AKA Fitchner), the thing is he just can’t. Then he had a moment with Darrow and they tried killing each other… I think they talked first IDK. The first part where I felt like their friendship is falling apart, it broke my heart ‘seeing them fighting like that.

o Mustang – I’m so glad this b*tch didn’t get that much part.
Well he certainly benefited with everything. #IMBITTER
Thank stars she had a redeeming part. *sigh* Thank you Mustang.
What’s your real name again?

o Cassius – why didn’t you tell me?! *GRRR*
I agree with Pierce Brown for not killing this guy. I hated him with all might and at the same time understand him fully.
Cassius don’t ever cross Darrow again.


***DEATHS***

o Ragnar – why? *sob*

o The Jackal – I hate him more than I hate Voldemort and Cersei Lannister.
THE ROOT OF ALL EVILS!!! HE’S IS WICKED! HELL WILL SPIT HIM OUT! WHERE? HELL IF I KNOW. *evil grin*
I LOVE YOUR DEATH. (GOSH! IT WAS SO WEIRD SAYING THAT.)
But I really do. Mustang gave him mercy that he didn’t give to those people he thoughtlessly killed.

o Aja – is this b*tch a cat or something? He just keeps on popping out and alive.

o Octavia – I would love to watch her dying… She died too easily.

o Roque – let’s just say he died a Gold. Conceited bastard!
*crying* At least Darrow gave him the honor of dying that way.

o Antonia – THE FUNNIEST DEATH EVER. *grin*
OHMYGOSH! Just talking about it makes me want to laugh so hard.
I wished it was Victra who killed this b*tch.

o Sevro – OH YEAH! HE DIED BTW.

NO PREDICTABLE SCENES. FOR EVERYTIME YOU TURN THE PAGE YOU’LL ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING NEW!
AND… IT WAS SO LONG THAT I DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE THAT. NO JEST! I WOUNLDNT MIND A COUPLE OF MORE PAGES. WAHAHA!



I GUESS THIS IS REALLY IT!
I DON’T WANT TO LET GO OFR THIS SERIES. *DEEP SIGH*
ITS HARD TO LET GO… JUST THINK HOW THIS STORY STARTED. FROM A HUSBAND WHO BECAME A MARTYR FOR BURYING HIS DEAD WIFE.

PS: DEAR PIERCE BROWN, I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO READ YOUR NEXT WORK!!!
SET THE DATE!!! *GRIN*

“Break the chains!”



BYE EVERYONE!!!
