Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Original Title: Morning Star

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Red Rising thrilled readers and announced the presence of a talented new author. Golden Son changed the game and took the story of Darrow to the next level. Now comes the exhilarating conclusion to the Red Rising Trilogy: Morning Star. ITW THRILLER AWARD FINALIST Darrow would have lived in peace, but his enemies brought him war. The Gold overlords demanded his obedience, hanged his wife, and enslaved his people. But Darrow is determined to fight back. Risking everything to transform himself and breach Gold society, Darrow has battled to survive the cutthroat rivalries that breed Society’s mightiest warriors, climbed the ranks, and waited patiently to unleash the revolution that will tear the hierarchy apart from within. Finally, the time has come. But devotion to honor and hunger for vengeance run deep on both sides. Darrow and his comrades-in-arms face powerful enemies without scruple or mercy. Among them are some Darrow once considered friends. To win, Darrow will need to inspire those shackled in darkness to break their chains, unmake the world their cruel masters have built, and claim a destiny too long denied—and too glorious to surrender. Praise for Morning Star “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.”— “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

Original Title: Red Rising 1 Versione Italiana

"Scritto in modo splendido, un libro che non puoi abbandonare un secondo." Terry Brooks "Pierce Brown è un prodigio. 'Red Rising' cresce irresistibilmente in bellezza e drammaticità." Christopher Golden "Una storia che non perde un colpo, fino alla rivelazione finale." Publishers Weekly "Dopo Ender, dopo Katniss, un nuovo fantastico eroe: Darrow." Scott Sigler Darrow ha sedici anni, vive su Marte ed è uno dei Rossi. La casta più bassa, minatori condannati a scavare nelle profondità del pianeta a temperature intollerabili, rischiando ogni giorno la propria vita. Ma Darrow sa di farlo per rendere abitabile la superficie di Marte, per dare una terra alle nuove generazioni. E a ripagarlo dei sacrifici c'è l'amore per Eo, bellissima e idealista. Finché un giorno i due innamorati sono sorpresi a baciarsi in un luogo dove non avrebbero dovuto, sono processati e condannati da un giudice appartenente alla casta degli Oro, la classe dominante. E mentre Eo riceve le frustate di punizione, la sua voce si scioglie in un canto dolcissimo, un canto proibito di rivolta e speranza, lo stesso canto che era costato la vita al padre di Darrow. E ora costerà la vita a Eo. Così inizia "Red Rising", paragonato immediatamente alle massime espressioni del romanzo fantasy contemporaneo. Apprezzato con slancio dai lettori, oggi "Red Rising" ha conquistato i primi posti nelle classifiche del "New York Times" e il suo fascino drammatico e avventuroso ha convinto il regista Marc Forster (World War Z, 2013) a girarne la versione cinematografica (Universal Pictures). Accanto ai grandi nomi di George R.R. Martin, Suzanne Collins e Joe Abercrombie, Pierce Brown ha firmato una saga appassionante, un debutto difficile da dimenticare.

Red Rising And Philosophy by Courtland Lewis

Original Title: Red Rising And Philosophy

Red Rising and Philosophy has gathered together a crew of the wisest Helldivers philosophy can offer. Could humanity's love of physical enhancements cause its extinction? Do people doom humanity by trying to all be the same? Can a person love someone, while at the same time wanting that person destroyed? Is equality always the best principle on which to organize society? What is evil, and how does it exist in contemporary life? Does one remain the same person, even after changing every physical aspect of one's body? Is it moral to sell oneself into slavery, whether it’s through sex or manual labor? Is it ethical to sell one's children into slavery, on the promise that their children will live in peace and tranquility? These questions and more are what make Brown’s Red Rising trilogy such an impactful story. Brown pulls no punches, and philosophy works best in such an environment. Red Rising and Philosophy is not for the timid or the faint at heart. It’s not The Passage, since no one will die from reading it, but reading it could be a life-changing experience.

Now fully embedded amongst the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his dangerous work to bring them down from within.

Star Gods Of The Maya by Susan Milbrath

Original Title: Star Gods Of The Maya

Observations of the sun, moon, planets, and stars played a central role in ancient Maya lifeways, as they do today among contemporary Maya who maintain the traditional ways. This pathfinding book reconstructs ancient Maya astronomy and cosmology through the astronomical information encoded in Precolumbian Maya art and confirmed by the current practices of living Maya peoples. Susan Milbrath opens the book with a discussion of modern Maya beliefs about astronomy, along with essential information on naked-eye observation. She devotes subsequent chapters to Precolumbian astronomical imagery, which she traces back through time, starting from the Colonial and Postclassic eras. She delves into many aspects of the Maya astronomical images, including the major astronomical gods and their associated glyphs, astronomical almanacs in the Maya codices [painted books], and changes in the imagery of the heavens over time. This investigation yields new data and a new synthesis of information about the specific astronomical events and cycles recorded in Maya art and architecture. Indeed, it constitutes the first major study of the relationship between art and astronomy in ancient Maya culture.
