Red Rising #3: Morning Star By Superstar Author, Pierce Brown, Gets An OCD-Triggering Cover

I cannot really say if I liked the new cover of the final book in the Red Rising Trilogy, Morning Star by Pierce Brown. I was overly happy with the first two covers, because they were a perfect match and nothing could satisfy my OCD tendencies more. I disappointedly expected a matching cover for the third book, which as you may see below isn't... I don't really love the cover, after all -- after much thought. No offense... I also know why this has to be, because the title is to long and would not fit the format used on the first two books, which have shorter titles. * Eyes twitching.

I am not even finished with the second book yet, you know the one titled Golden Son, and I am already excited for the next book, albeit my bias on the cover. I just hope the story will make up for the cover -- I'm sure author Pierce Brown can manage that...

Check out this new cover of Morning Star by Pierce Brown.

And here's how the books would look like if they are put together in one picture.

Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown


Red Rising thrilled readers and announced the presence of a talented new author. Golden Son totally changed the game and took the story of Darrow to the next level. Now comes the thrilling conclusion to the Red Rising Trilogy: Morning Star.

Born a lowly Red in the mines of Mars, Darrow lost his beloved wife to the treacherous Gold overlords. Vowing to fight for the future that his wife believed in, Darrow joins a secret revolutionary group and is remade into a Gold so that he can infiltrate the ruling class and bring them down from the inside. Now, after years of hiding amongst the Golds, Darrow is finally ready to declare open revolution and throw off the chains of oppression. Nothing in Darrow’s world has been easily won, and this final fight will be the most harrowing of all.

Morning Star by Pierce Brown will hit bookstores in Winter of 2016.
