    Iron Gold is very much an in between book. Dark Age is a return to form and maybe my favorite of them all.

    Yup. When I first read Iron Gold I was kind of disappointed. Dark Age is amazing and makes IG so much better. There were a lot of things set up in IG that paid off in DA that I didnt realize the first time I read IG

    Y'all weren't lying. The Prologue was better than anything in Iron Gold. That was awesome.

    200+ pages into Dark Ages and it's been nothing but war. Really good and really impressive the detail that was put into the battle. That had to have taken a ton of notes and charting.

    Didn’t realize there was additional books in this series until last week. Started rereading the series this week and just about half way through red rising. Forgot how muncy fun these books are and I cannot wait to get to the new material

    I'm in the middle of the 5th book. I plan on re-reading the 1st book only, before the 6th book comes out. A lot of the characters have been around, and we're 1st introduced, at The Institute. Think it'll be cool to see them at the beginning.

    Same. The only books I’ve ever re-read are Expanse and Red Rising. Can’t wait for the next in both to reread the series.

    It will be the last in both :tebow:

    Just got through book 2. Forgot how well both books end but also how frustrating it would have been to have to wait. That end of the second book is so great. Looking forward to #3 bc i remember loving this one in particular. And can’t wait to read the new ones

    of the entire series, Golden Son was my fav and that ending left me shattered and dying to know what happened next

    I'd love to see some shots of his "process" for the overall arc, when it all concludes.

    thanks for posting the update! I'd rather him take his time and get it right than mess up this last book

    Agreed. I kinda thought(hoped) he'd been mum because he was done but was waiting to publish until book tours returned.

    I generally feel this way, except for Rothfuss, that bastard just needs to publish

    I don’t care if it takes a little while to release good material. But going AWOL for a decade or more and never talking about your progress is a different thing entirely.
