Pierce Brown is the New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising, Golden Son, and Morning Star. While trying to make it as a writer, Brown worked as a manager of social media at a startup tech company, toiled as a peon on the Disney lot at ABC Studios, did his time as an NBC page, and gave sleep deprivation a new meaning during his stint as an aide on a U.S. Senate campaign. He lives in Los Angeles, where he is at work on his next novel.
"You could call [Pierce] Brown science fiction's best-kept secret. In Morning Star, the trilogy's devastating and inspiring final chapter, . . . he flirts with volume, oscillating between thundering space escapes and hushed, tense parleys between rivals, where the cinematic dialogue oozes such specificity and suspense you could almost hear a pin drop between pages. His achievement is in creating an uncomfortably familiar world of flaw, fear, and promise."--Entertainment Weekly "There is no one writing today who does shameless, Michael Bay-style action set pieces the way Brown does. The battle scenes are kinetic, bloody, breathless, crazy. Everything is on fire all the time."--NPR "Morning Star is this trilogy's Return of the Jedi. . . . The impactful battles that make up most of Morning Star are damn near operatic. . . . It absolutely satisfies."--Tor.com "Excellent . . . Brown's vivid, first-person prose puts the reader right at the forefront of impassioned speeches, broken families, and engaging battle scenes . . . as this interstellar civil war comes to a most satisfying conclusion."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A page-turning epic filled with twists and turns . . . The conclusion to Brown's saga is simply stellar."--Booklist (starred review) "Multilayered and seething with characters who exist in a shadow world between history and myth, much as in Frank Herbert's Dune . . . an ambitious and satisfying conclusion to a monumental saga."--Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.
