Rapid Review of Dark Age

No spoilers in this rapid review of Dark Age. I give it 4.5 stars. Thank you for this masterpiece of a series, Pierce Brown. He describes it as high tech Rome meets space Vikings in the acknowledgements, and this explanation makes me smile. It’s the easiest way to sum up the series for those who…
