Description

The eighth novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times best-selling Expanse series - now a major television series. 

Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper. 

In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay. 

At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father, the emperor, doesn't guess. 

And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. 

Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule - and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose - seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough....

Big moments as the series nears the end...

After the events of the last book, Babylon's Ashes, the Expanse series was clearly building up to a crescendo and I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. Tiamat's Wrath is the eighth book of the series, with only one more to follow if James S. A. Corey sticks to the current plan, and it took only a single sentence for the point to be made that this series is nearing the end. To keep things spoiler free I won't say what that sentence was, but know that this book is full of big moments and if you are a fan of the series then you will not be disappointed. The crew of the Rocinante may be dispersed, but they are all playing their parts to keep humanity alive even if a myriad of other individuals seem hell bent on seeing it turn out otherwise. The story moves along from big moment to big moment and just like spending time with old friends it is over far too quickly. In contrast to the first sentence, which made it clear the series was ending, the last sentence lets you know there are still big things to come. The final book is going to be a doozy and I wish there was more than one book remaining because there is still a lot of story to tell here. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I do have a couple of criticisms. First, the humor that has always been a part of this series now plays a much smaller role, and second, it felt like some of the story was a little bit contrived this time around. Both are minor criticisms and far outweighed by all the good things, so ultimately I find myself just as eager for the next book in the series as always.  Jefferson Mays narrates the story once again and I will take his excellent portrayal of all these wonderful characters over the TV series any day of the week.

unfortunate bug in chapter 39

I'm enjoying the heck out of this story and performance, so it threw me when I heard the narrator interrupt their narration at the end of chapter 39 with the word 'four- oh-nine' before 'when they're not jokes'. I feel like I missed two or three critical seconds. gives me a bit of empathy for the characters when they're 'Missing Time', I suppose.

Loving the series, 1 error in narration

This is easily my favorite science fiction series right now. To say that this is the story that I've been waiting for would give me too much credit for having high expectations and good taste in science fiction, and understanding too well its potential. I am surprised and delighted over and over again. You've got interesting characters that grow and change, a good grounding in real science and philosophy (although the latter might be more appealing if it were more imaginative and less academic--kind of pins one to 20/21th century sensibilities), sociopolitical intrigue (even if this volume lacks Chrisjen Avasarala it's still a good book), extra-dimensional threat, and adventure on a grand scale--spanning more time and space than most other Sci-Fi. My one and only grip is an editing error; at 14:40:25 the narration skips part of a sentence and seems include "409" in its place. The reading is otherwise excellent.

Christmas came Three Months later

Toward the end of the year, I always look forward to the holidays. Not because family time, good eating, and going broke at buying useless gifts, but James S. A. Corey (pen names for both authors), always publish another novel in the Expanse series usually in December. I wasn't a fan of "Persepolis Rising" for obvious reasons that I won't write about, but "Tiamat's Wrath" redeemed this series by 10 folds. I couldn't get enough of this book. Each time I fell asleep in the evenings while listing, I needed to go back to see what I'd missed. These authors came back firing with all thrusters and #8 was exactly what I was hoping for. My only complaint is when they thanked George R. R. Martin at the beginning of the book. We all know that Martin doesn't finish anything! Christmas came three months later and it brought me great joy at reading this book. I'm hoping it won't take Corey(s) too long to finish the Expanse. After finishing up "Tiamat's Wrath", I'm more stoked on how Amazon will continue on with the tv show.

Fantastic

A great penultimate chapter in the story. It concludes some storylines, continues a few others, and opens up a few more. The authors have done it again. All the stars...

Not much really happens

It's about twice as long as it needs to be. It's also overly descriptive. It's the weakest of the series so far.

The sound editing is crazy bad.

As always the narrator is very good. This is the eighth book in the series and he is a big reason for continuing to listen to this series. However with this title I have two issues. The first is my fault, I should have taken a break and moved on to a different story and then coming back to this series. Just a little of burn out. The other issue greatly affects the listenability of the book. It sounds like the book was recorded in at least 10 different studios each with different equipment and different recording settings. It is almost to the point where it sounds like each is a different narrator. Across chapters it is workable, but there are several times where there is a change mid chapter. In addition there are times where a simple sentence or two are spliced in and it is as bad as watching an edited for tv movie when they replace some of the dialog. Very distracting. I understand wanting to release the audio book as quickly as possible, but seriously?

audio not as good as previous books

I love the series, and I like the narrator. I do not like the microphone setup for this recording. I can hear him breathing haha. Kinda higher pitched and raspy overall as well.

For want of not revealing too much of this wonderful book...

I’ve actively chosen to keep my review what will seem overly simplistic, and moreover in no way fitting for this or any masterpiece, though I feel it a must. That said, I’ve already begun to listen a second time; for those not realizing the fact, keep in mind that this was just released (03.26.2019). That’s how good it is. And that’s how little I want to give away. If you want spoilers, read elsewhere. Thank-you.

okay let's poke the bear

The empire decided to annoy the old ones that killed the Creator's of the proto molecule. After that the fecal matter hits the ventilation system. Also "that is not dead which can eternal lie..." Very good part of the story.

Wie in den anderen Büchern davor hat sich zum Ende wieder einmal alles verändert. Mit dem ersten Satz ist man direkt in der Story und will nicht mehr aufhören.

Lazy writing

As a great fan of the excellent GoT novels of Martin i followed his recommendation for "The Expanse". I really enjoyed the first few books, and still love the general idea and universe. But more and more the behavior of the characters and the events happening seems very constructed and lacks depth and "realistic" events. E. G. after years in charge of a whole galaxy the laconian empire lacks any kind of structure, not even an admiralty and their military conduct seems totally unprofessional. It seems that the author is missing a deeper understanding of psychology and also organizational structures. Thats a pity as the overall story arch and the question who the big enemy is, is still very engaging.

A little too much j.r.r. martin

this is an excellent book but one can feel martens influence. he is just that bit too trigger happy. it may be all the rage to kill off everyone and their dog but it does not necessarily make the best plot decision.

My personal favorite of the series

Struggled with the previous narrative, starting with the Free Navi, the whole Marco storyline felt half-baked and also the 7th book was not entirely to my taste. But this one made it all worth going through. I love the writing style of the authors so much. The way of describing how after some 20 or 30 years Naomi and Alex ascend back into space with the good old Rocinante is just beautiful.

Bad audio quality, great book.

Audio quality was way worse than previous book, it almost physically hurt my ears at times to listen to this. Be sure to download the higher quality version, as the default quality one is near impossible to actually listen to. Despite that, the book itself was great, as was the narration.

Recording quality issues

Sometimes the quality of the recording changes suddenly. It sounds like the mic was farther away when they re-recorded some parts. Quite irritating. Especially when it happens for a really short sentence. Apart from that I really enjoyed the 8th book of the expanse. For me the second best of the series.
