Red Rising Series Book 5 - Dark Age
Anyone picked it up yet? Just finished my reread of Iron Gold and about to jump into the new book.

Iron Gold holds up even better on a second read IMO. I forgot how much shite went down and where we left things. Pierce Brown is really good at creating such good, well-rounded characters. I forgot how much I liked Romulous, Diomedes, and Dido.

Will post thoughts on Dark Age once I finish it.

re: Red Rising Series Book 5 - Dark Age
I'm about a third of the way through my listen.


So far I'm really liking it. The pacing and the way he's breaking up the POV chapter order is great IMO.


ETA: For the audiobookers.

Narrators:
Darrow/TGR is still GOAT
Ephraim is the same guy. He's solid and has actually grown on me.
I really like Mustang's reader
Lyria: I've only had one chapter of the new girl so TBD
Lysander at first I didn't like him at all (and I didn't really like the last one either) but he's grown on me as the book goes on.

Damn. I didn't realize this was out. I intended to reread the series before the 5th came out. I could hardly put these books down.

Love the series. I'm a few hours in to the Dark Age audiobook now and it's been great so far.

Just finished part 1 of the book, no spoilers but it felt like the payoff at the end of a novel given the pacing and what occurred.

I’m really liking it so far. Am in the middle of the battle on Mercury. About 4 hrs in on my audible.

Anymore updates anyone? I’ve been busy and have only gotten through the first 50 or so pages and it’s killing me

re: Red Rising Series Book 5 - Dark Age
I'm approaching the end of part 3.

Shits starting to get real.

There were a few recent chapters that were very "WTF" unexpected (but in a good way).


I'm looking forward to everyone in here finishing and having a spoiler thread. There's a lot to talk about in this book. And I'm sure more is coming.

I finished a few days ago. I liked it better than Iron Gold.

Wait, it’s more than three books? I thought it was a trilogy. This makes me happy to hear!

There's a 2nd trilogy. It takes place 10 years after The Rising, and there are multiple POV characters.


The 2nd of the new trilogy just released.

I finished a few days ago. This audiobook was great and I didn’t mind the change in voice actors, as long as they keep Tim Reynolds for Darrow. I was pleasantly surprised and shocked at some parts of the story. As a parent, some parts were cringe worthy. i might listen again after i finish the new Larry Correa book. I want to talk about spoilers soon, so get to reading/listening the story my Goodman.

re: Red Rising Series Book 5 - Dark Age
Without spoilers how much do you guys recommend I re-read before picking up this book? Is there some exposition in there so that I can recall who and where everything is or should I give Iron Gold a re-read first?

re: Red Rising Series Book 5 - Dark Age
I think you'd be fine if you didn't re-read. The characters are all interconnected so they're constantly mentioning each other.


Personally I always like to re-read but I think you'd be okay.

Just finished part 1. As noted earlier, it felt like it could have been its own book with conclusion. Bloodygood!
