Finished Morning Star off last week. Absolutely loved it. Resounding conclusion to one of my favorite science fiction trilogies. It's certainly one of the best science fiction books / series that's come out this decade. While I don't feel the series does anything new, it's exciting to read, it's well written (almost poetic at times), the characters are strong (though sometimes stupid), and you are kept on your toes the whole way through. I'd rate Morning Star 9/10. Red Rising: 9.1 /10 Golden Son: 7.5 / 10 Morning Star: 9 / 10 Overall, I'd give the series a 8.5 out of 10. Very, very readable and it's hard to put down.
