  • Better than its predecessor.

    I enjoyed this more than Iron Gold (honestly, after Iron Gold I wasn't convinced that the series shouldn't have ended after book 3). I almost gave up in the first 20% as it wasn't overly interesting and I found myself skimming most of the battle scenes (probably more of a "me" thing than a writing thing but it seemed repetitive and unnecessarily long). I was pleased to finally get Mustang's POV on this one but could have done without some of the more overt brutality on this book. I love that the women kick butt just as well as the men. All told, I reluctantly picked this one up after Iron Gold but I will pick up the next one to see how it all ends with much more enthusiasm after reading this instalment.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Dark Age

    The continuing saga of Darrow, Mustang, Sevro of the Red Rising the 5th book is just as brilliantly plotted as the previous 4 with twists and turns you never expect. It's another page turner with the same great characters

  • Excellent but ready for the saga to come to an end

    These books are so deep, they can be hard to read at the end of a long day, but it's amazing how the story and characters stay with you. I couldn't possibly stop reading them, they are so absorbing, but I have to admit I am ready for the story to wrap up. So yes, I loved it but I've nearly had enough of his world.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Pierce Brown's strongest book so far

    This is likely the strongest book of the series. One qualm I had with Iron Gold was the way Pierce Brown depicted Ephraim and Lyria; they seemed to have only been added for the sake of adding diversity. However, in Dark Age, we see these two grow and become essential to the plot in a way that makes them much more intriguing than they were previously. Darrow is also well written; his flimsy decisions in Iron Gold that seemed to go against the knowledge he had gained from previous experiences appeared no longer. And one must not forget that Mustang is now a POV character. This book also delves futher into current situations found in today's society; racisms, eugenics, gender inequality are all present. Moreover Brown demonstartes how conflict of interest in a democratic society may precipitate lives into chaos in a way that is mch apparent and vivid. Another aspect that I thoroughly enjoyed was the developement of Obsidian culture and traditions. No longer do we see them as brain-less brutes, but as having keen political and visionary-like minds despite the way he were treated by Gold. Brown's fifth book, in spite of being dark (as is implied by the name), had some great humour which adds some much needed warmth to tis otherwise dark, dark book (no that that's a bad thing, mind you). I'd highly recommend giving this book a read, you'll thoroughly enjoy it!

  • Worthy

    If you’ve read this far into the series, you don’t need a review. You’re probably binging these like a stack of comic books. This instalment seemed to have more threads than its predecessors, but that makes sense considering the number of characters we’ve come to know. And I say that despite the rate at which they tend to die. Do Golds have an evolved capacity for suffering?

    Thanks for your feedback!
