User reviews about the book
By Covenant series
The first book of a follow up trilogy bears many burdens - carry the beloved story arc of the first set, and set up the plot and characters for the rest of the story. On my first read I didn’t appreciate the cadence of this book, but on the second read it all clicked together and fulfilled what I wanted to see: more depth, more layering, and more nuance on a familiar set of characters and relationships. Brown’s characters are mature, flawed, and human on every level. Loved this book!
I read the first trilogy and the expectation was that this would be a mediocre book with its moments powered more by nostalgia than any merit of its own. Wrong. The book is mesmerizing in its handle of drama, the maturity of character, insights, and the sweeping panorama of it’s worlds and battlefields. I only dread the potential disaster of a movie adaption.
So it continues
Fear The Reaper!
Kept me hooked
Not sure about this not exciting talk, I read books to enjoy my time and I enjoyed my time. At the end I was immediately butthurt I have to wait until “September” for book 5.
Not his best.
I’m a huge fan of Brown, but this installment was much less exciting than Red Rising and Golden Son. It would seem that Low Colors have less fun. Ephraim’s story arc is off to a really underwhelming start, Lysander isn’t much better, and Lyria was sort of neglected.
