Inhaltsangabe

Honor and betrayal fuel a caste-shattering revolution in the action-packed new novel from the number one New York Times best-selling author of the Red Rising Trilogy.

Ten years after the events of Morning Star, Darrow and the Rising are battling the remaining Gold loyalist forces and are closer than ever to abolishing the color-coded caste system of Society for good. But new foes will emerge from the shadows to threaten the imperfect victory Darrow and his friends have earned. Pierce Brown expands the size and scope of his impressive Red Rising universe with new characters, enemies, and conflicts among the stars.

Great Book. One of the speakers is beyond terrible

Like the series before the book is full of fast action, detailed charaktes in a complex world.
All male charactes are spoken real good.

Sadly the female speaker (for the character Lyria) is so bad that i realy couldnt take it). Somehow she tryes to make the voice so heavy with emotion in every single moment that is read - even when nothing happens at all. It is extremely tiering and annoying!
I skipped every single of Lyrias chapers thereafter. Luckly this does not hurt the story much - still I can t beleave that a book this great is tortured liek this.

Bad reading makes it hard to enjoy the story

Loved the first three books, and loved the way Tim Gerard Reynolds read them. This time we have four different readers, for different viewpoint characters. Aedin Moloney makes this one almost unbearable for me. I feel bad for pointing her out like this, but her performance in this audiobook, to me at least, is just bad. She's trying incredibly hard to sound emotional and profound, but it just sounds like someone is wailing in your ears for hours.

I continued the audiobook by skipping the parts read by her. I'm not finished yet, and don't know how that will affect the coherence of the book.
Pretty disapointed with the product because of that.
Really hope they will have Tim Gerard Reynolds as the only reader again in the next book

Not worth the credits

As much as I loved all the other parts this one is just horrible production wise.

It’s four or five narrators. A mix of male and female. Some speak very rapid. Some more slowly. The females wining especially annoyed me (Sorry but there is no other way to put it.).

As soon as you have adjusted your brain and the volume to the new narrator it changes again. Some speak super quiet and in a mumbling way. Some in a normal voice. So you are constantly adjusting the output. Having other apps e. g. navigation screaming at you.

I put it down after 8 hours. I feel very brave I have lasted that long. But no thanks. It’s just not good!

good story, mixed narrators

the story is less focused than the previous books, but nonetheless engaging. having multiple viewpoints is giving it some fresh air.
the narrator's for lyria and lysander didn't do a very good job of giving moments gravity. example for lyria: in the camp when it gets hectic, lysander at the end when someone says "farewell. "
it seemed rushed. I listened to their parts at 0.9 speed which helped. I'd say slow down a little, let us linger on moments!

still enjoyed it immensely though :)

Großartig

Es ist nicht einfach die Qualität während einer langen Buchreihe aufrecht zu erhalten.
Jedoch ist Iron Gold ein weiteres hervorragendes Buch. Ich hatte sogar den Eindruck, dass die Erzählung diesmal noch etwas klarer und überlegter aufgebaut wird.

Etwas ärgerlich ist nur der harte cliffhanger am Ende des Buches. Hoffentlich ist der Nächte Teil bald verfügbar.

Like the Hobbit movie to the LOTR movies

The first three bocks are masterpieces that stole sleep away from me and just took me on an amazing journey.

Unfortunately this book is different and not for the better. Instead of only one main character you now have four with different story lines some of which converge. Similar to Game of Thrones except it doesn't work as well here.

The characters feel flat and in addition to that some of the important characters from the previous books are simply killed "off screen".

The list of the flaws could go on, but the biggest flaw of this book is that for long stretches it is just plain boring by telling us stuff we already know from the previous books and forcing negative emotions from four different characters down our throats.

The only redeeming factors are that we get more of the world and some of the plots are actually interesting, like the syndicate part. Other than that quite a dissapointment in my oppinion.
