Red Rising Book 5 (Dark Age) Will Arrive Fall 2018 (UPDATED With New Release Date)

It’s coming sooner than we could’ve hoped!

When Pierce Brown announced the title of Red Rising Book 5, he mentioned that it would be arriving “quite soon.” At the time, I actually said it was probably too much to hope that we’d see Dark Age drop in Fall 2018. I really thought we’d have to wait until at least January 2019, a year following Iron Gold‘s release. Turns out, I was wrong! Pre-ordering is now available for Dark Age, with a listed release date of September 11, 2018.

UPDATE: The release date of Dark Age has been moved to February 12, 2019. More on that here

There’s also a temporary cover for the book:

darkage

Penguin Random House has the date listed along with the above (temporary) cover. The publisher also has a page-count listed at 480, which is a bit shorter than Iron Gold‘s expected 624 pages. (For reference, Morning Star was 544 pages.)

Dark Age is already available for pre-order on Amazon for Kindle and Hardcover. Looks like they’re showing non-discounted pricing. For reference, Amazon has Iron Gold hardcover listed for just under $25, so I imagine the $28 price will drop for Dark Age at some point ahead of release.

I really thought Fall was too soon to be realistic for Dark Age‘s release, but apparently not. As excited as I am to read Iron Gold, I have a feeling I’m going to be anticipating Dark Age even more, as I expect Iron Gold to rekindle my appetite for this world in a big way.

We’re less than a month away until Iron Gold hits shelves January 16, 2018.
