This is my second favorite book in the Red Rising Saga (and the most recent one, so much of this review deals with references to characters you’ll only know from reading the prior novels). It’s probably because while I enjoy nearly all of Brown’s characters to varying degrees, Mustang is the one I look forward to the most. She’s not even a huge part of this novel, but when she is on the page, she is great.
There is some early Darrow/Lysander stuff that felt like you were just thrown into a ton of action sequences (that are really fun, but I was waiting to see where we were heading). Once we joined with the other characters things really started to work for me. The great thing about this series is that it is relentless. The plot never slows down, something new is always happening. Sometimes early I wanted a little more time to breathe, but as the story started to really form, the breakneck pace just makes you want to keep going. Few books have that kind of momentum. The only real disappointment is waiting for the next one.
