Description

A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle.

Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees.

The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price. And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.

Enjoyable SciFi, recommendable, with faults

If you are into the expanse franchise this is still worth to listen to or read. It's great to be on the Roci with the crew and I really enjoyed it.

However this and the following book (Babylons Ashes) have really one big problem in their story.
--- VERY SMALL SPOILER - basically none at all ---

Something terrible happens, some bad guys do it, and even though it is very very terrible they still have the support from most of the fraction of humanity they belong to. Given the gravity of what happened it is not credible at all that they would have that support. Or not without at least a generation of brainwashing and isolation from facts. But that didn't happen.

It's really quite bad that the story kinda relies on the people being fine with that bad thing, so very often in that story I just got annoyed because of this. It's just not credible without assuming the that all the normal people are being extremely stupid, bad or downright sociopaths. And stories that rely on people, a whole fraction of humanity even, being stupid or bad really aren't well thought out.

Nevertheless: Enjoyable.

Pretty good but with one major character issue

The book is good for the most part and there are other reviews that are more in-depth about the book over all but I have one major issue with the story that I feed ruins a lot, a basic overview of the situation (without being specific or naming anything) is below the spoiler warning:


MINOR SPOILER BELOW
There's a returning character which shouldnt be there, in no way does it make sense to me that they'd bring that character back in the way they did. It doesnt benefit the story in any way and its unbelievable that the character is let back in.

solar system war: crew on vacation

another masterpiece of hard sf in near future setting with our crew and chracters growing from narative ache types to complete persons. clearly this is an interlude story preparing us for the next increments of this series and tying up loose character ends. Again an exceptional performance from the narrator.

Rich, dense story-telling, beautifully executed

This, and the others in the series, is really near the top of my listening list from the last 20 years. It is so engaging and well-paced. Yes, there are a couple of really annoying characters, but I suppose life is like that and there are many nuanced and enjoyable characters to balance them out. I don't look forward to getting to the end of the books.

I would like to put in a good word for the narrator, Jefferson Mays. He does a wonderful job with the different characters, both male and female. His Avasarala is actually better than the book version: his Avasarala is a lady who knows how to speak properly and does not indulge in euphemisms. She says "arse", not "ass".

Perfect.

Enjoyed it as much as first three books of the series.
Can't wait to continue it.
Definitely recommend.

Good again

After the poor narration of the last book, this one was excellent and the story line was top class, leaving us hanging and waiting for the next instalment .

Yay!

I had to skip the previous book due to the narrator being unbearable. So good to have Jefferson mays back with the Roci. I've grown to be a part of the crew and can't wait to get flying again.

Großes Kopfkino

Ein weiterer Höhepunkt der Expanse-Reihe, wenn auch zu Beginn sehr berechenbar konstruiert. Die Crew der Rosinante wird getrennt und so ein Raum geschaffen, alle Charaktere zu entfalten, insbesondere Naomi. Die welterschütternde Verschwörungsgeschichte endet allerdings diesmal mit einem Cliffhanger. Eher ein erster Teil als ein eigenständiger Roman - aber mal wieder spannend bis zur letzten Sekunde.

1A Fortsetzung mit mächtigem Cliffhänger

Großartige Fortsetzung mit lang erwarteten Offenbarungen und einem Wiedersehen mit vielen bekannten Figuren. Das Ende ist aprubt und, da die Fortsetzung noch etwas auf sich waren lässt, doppelt schmerzhaft.
Der Sprecher ist wie gewohnt ausgezeichnet. Allerdings würden ein paar Soundeffekte gut passen, um die Atmosphäre zu steigern.

Wow

While book 4 had some slower and tamer moments, this book starts intense and doesn't let you breath until the end. And then only because Book 6 is not out yet.

Pity we have to wait a year for the next book.

Awesome book. Like the rest of the series. Can't wait for the TV adaption. 1 remaining word.
