Dark Age

Dark Age

***The explosive fifth novel in the Red Rising Series***

The Number One New York Times bestselling author of Morning Star returns to the Red Rising universe with the thrilling sequel to Iron Gold.

He broke the chains
Then broke the world….

A decade ago Darrow led a revolution, and laid the foundations for a new world. Now he’s an outlaw.

Cast out of the very Republic he founded, with half his fleet destroyed, he wages a rogue war on Mercury. Outnumbered, outgunned but not out thought. Is he still the hero who broke the chains? Or will he become the agent of the world’s destruction?

Is it time for another legend to take his place?

Lysander au Lune, the displaced heir to the old empire, has returned to the Core. First he must survive Gold backstabbing, then Darrow. Will he bring peace to mankind at the edge of his sword?

And on Luna, Mustang, the embattled sovereign of the Republic, must save both democracy and her exiled husband millions of kilometres away.

The only thing certain in the Solar System is treachery. And that the Rising is entering a new Dark Age.

Reviews

Fascinating . . . This is one you absolutely will have to read
The Biblio Sanctum
Much like A Song of Ice and Fire's George R. R. Martin, Brown is an author who is interested in exploring the consequences of his protagonist's actions. Revolution doesn't come without a price and no one can stay a hero forever. . . . Dark Age continues the trend of compelling characters, fast plotting, action, and the feeling that no one is truly safe and no one is who you think they are

Praise for DARK AGE
:
Brown's plots are like a depth charge of nitromethane dropped in a bucket of gasoline. His pacing is 100 percent him standing over it all with a lit match and a smile, waiting for us to dare him to drop it
NPR
This book lives up to every expectation I have for Pierce Brown . . . you MUST read this, it will not disappoint!
The Speculative Herald
Complex, layered . . . mature science fiction existing within the frame of blazing space opera . . . done in a style [that] borders on Shakespearean.
NPR
An epic story of rebellion, social unrest and sacrifice
Orlando Sentinel
Another sizzling space epic to entice, excite and tease. 5 STARS
Starburst Magazine
Iron Gold offers more of everything we loved about the first three books. Pierce Brown builds upon the foundations of the incredible universe and story he spun in the first trilogy, pivoting on his characters' flaws and fallibility to steer the narrative in unexpected directions. Suffice it to say, readers will be soon be dying to read the next one
Barnes & Noble
Dark Age proves that Brown has truly become a master
The Geekiary
'The books are an exhilarating fusion of The Hunger Games, Blade Runner and Dune. Amid a pulse-pounding narrative, they fearlessly tackle major issues like the fragility of democracy and the fallibility of human nature to betray its ideals even when freedom is attained
