Friday Firsts: Morning Star (Red Rising #3) by Pierce Brown #RRSciFiMonth

Friday Firsts
 is a new meme that runs every Friday over on Tenacious Reader. The idea is to feature the first few sentences/paragraph of your current book and try and outline your first impressions as a result. This is a quick and easy way to share a snippet of information about your current read and to perhaps tempt others.  Stop on by and link up with Tenacious Reader.  As this month is Sci fi Month 2016 my book today is a science fiction novel that I’ve been wanting to read for some time.  I’m very excited to pick this one up as it’s the conclusion to a brilliant series and I need to know how it all ends!!

morningstarI rise into darkness, away from the garden they watered with the blood of my friends.  The Golden man who killed my wife lies dead beside me on the cold metal deck, life snuffed out by his own son’s hand.”

Autumn wind whips my hair.  The ship rumbles beneath.  In the distance, friction flames shred the night with brilliant orange.  The Telemanuses descending from orbit to rescue me.  Better that they do not.  Better to let the darkness have me and allow the vultures to squabble over my paralysed body.

My enemy’s voices echo behind me.  Towering demons with the faces of angels.  The smallest of them bends.  Stroking my head as he looks down at his dead father.

“This is always how the story would end,” he says to me.  “Not with your screams.  Not with your rage.  But with your silence.”

My First Impressions

Well, that’s intriguing.  Watch this space!

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you making of this one. It took me a bit of time to get into it, but once it got going I loved it. This is an amazing series and helped set the tone for the BEST reading year EVER, as far as I’m concerned…
