The New York Times bestselling author of Morning Star returns to the Red Rising universe with the thrilling seuel to Iron GoldFor a decade Darrow led a revolution against the corrupt color coded Society Now outlawed by the very Republic he founded he wages a rogue war on Mercury in hopes that he can still salvage the dream of Eo But as he leaves death and destruction in his wake is he still the hero who broke the chains Or will another legend rise to take his placeLysander au Lu 355 starsGory literally damn insane violent bleak and ruthless Helldivers prepare your soul to be hell drilled by Dark Age s brutality During war the laws are silent uintus Tullius Cicero Two things first If it has been a long time since you ve read Iron Gold or Red Rising Saga I strongly recommend you to reread the entire series before you read Dark Age I didn t do this and I truly believe that my reading experience of this book suffered from it Secondly throughout the years since Red Rising publication many people still insist that this series is for YA audience by the time you read this book you ll probably be traumatized or maybe even loathe this book for its extreme darkness Seriously Dark Age is one of the darkest bleakest and goriest novel I ve ever read in my life the humor and heartwarming aspect of the series that s usually common to find are close to non existent in this installment I will edit this review in the future when I ve reread the series from the beginning in preparation for the sixth and maybe last book of the series but for now this is my thoughts and opinions on my first read through Dark Age With every new endeavor there s always the hope that you will find happiness be less lonely I ve mentioned this before out of all the books released in 2019 A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie and Dark Age by Pierce Brown are at the top of my most anticipated release list I ve pre ordered Dark Age since February 2018 that s one year six months ahead I ve never done that for any book ever My expectations for these books were extremely high A Little Hatred exceeded it but sadly for the first time ever I have to say that although I still enjoyed it overall I didn t find Dark Age a book hailed by many of his fans as the best book in saga so far as enjoyable as I hoped I once thought the greatest sin of war was violence It isn t The greatest sin is it reuires good men to become practical Dark Age is the fifth and penultimate installment of the Red Rising Saga by Pierce Brown By this point of the series it s safe to say that I can t talk about the plot at all unless I risked spoiling the story so I won t be talking about the plot at all Let me just say there s no happy moment for the protagonists and everyone is constantly tortured tormented maimed and killed How about that The title of the book pretty much implied the tone of the book already full throttle darkness depression gore brutality bleak death violence violence and violence this is by far the bleakest and darkest installment in the series so far I honestly never expected the series to ever become this dark and with the escalation of darkness the pacing of the book felt off to me There were many moments of supposed intensity that felt desensitized because of everlasting pages of explicit gorefest with no break Imagine reading attempted rapes impalements genital mutilations drug abuse maimed gore deaths you name it and it s all here for hundreds of pages After a while the constant exposure to explicit details of violence ended up becoming boredom Pierce Brown is at his best when he combined hope humor and heartwarming moments with despair and terror into his narrative that s full of thrilling action seuences Unfortunately this brilliance was lost most of the time in this book Do note that if you check my reading history you should know that I don t mind reading violence gore and grimdark SFF in heavy doses They just need to be paced accordingly and I with sadness can t say that Brown nailed the pacing of his action seuences correctly this time No god listens There are only men And what one does another may undo That is my only religion That of the hand and the lever Brown sacrificed many staple moments of the series such as fantastic character developments clear and concise plot coherence engaging banters in exchange for the extreme bleakness Plus there s a severe lack of appearances from my favorite characters of the series characters for me to root for were truly lacking compared to the previous books There were many instances where the POV of the new characters from Iron Gold felt like fillers put for the sake of adding pages count What Brown tried to achieve with them became clearer at the end but even then I still believe that it didn t reuire that many pages Thankfully there s a new perspective character to follow here her chapters were relatively small compared to the other four POV s but her storyline was easily my favorite in this book I would like to also add that plot device that revolves around dead characters being resurrected is a personal pet peeve of mine sometimes they worked most often they don t Let s just say that the one that Brown pulled off here didn t work for me How many do not know you How many will soon forget you How many praise you today to offer contempt tomorrow Permanence of fame power dominion of the individual are illusions All that will be measured all that will last is your mastery of yourself I ve rambled on about the things that didn t work for me here but rest assured that it s not all bad It s time for me to talk about the incredible parts of the book that I loved I have always loved Brown s prose that didn t change here If it weren t because of his writing style I probably would ve DNFed this book somewhere in the middle Although I have complained about the excessive bleak and violent nature of the book that made the pacing awkward I won t deny the fact that there were several devastating scenes that in my opinion were written so damn well These characters suffered a LOT The horrible things they have to endure were insane to say the least And I can t help but feel empathetic towards the key characters of the series It s also satisfying to see how much of the series has grown in terms of scope Dark Age is massive in scope the level of escalation in its scale is something that took me by surprise and I m thankful for it You know I believe we all begin eual parts light and dark I fear you think your strength lies in your darkness But the measure of a man is not the fear he sows in his enemies It is the hope he gives his friends One last thing before I close this review Brown successfully ended Dark Age with a bang The closing sections of Part 3 and the entirety of Part 4 was absolutely brilliant tremendously immersive the twists and turns were written with magnificent clarity These sections were a return to the greatness that I loved from Brown s storytelling style Action scenes full of palpable intensity and fury told in a cinematic fashion that made every brutal scene damn vivid If I were to rate this book based on these parts I would give it 5 stars rating in a heartbeat It was truly brilliant Plus it also set up every single plotline for the grand conclusion to come in the next and final book But for all this new civilization s love affair with technology they ve been seduced by their own cleverness and fail to understand the simple truth lying is not a science it is an art And art will always be a human language Dark Age may not be as entertaining and enjoyable as the previous books but it was certainly bleak heart shattering and epic in scope Many fans have started claiming that Dark Age is the best book in the series so far unfortunately I have to disagree with this notion However from the way the story ended here the next book might truly end up becoming the best in the series for me I bloodydamn look forward to seeing how it all concludes Until then I will endure See you there HelldiversYou can order the book from Book Depository Free shipping You can
