    James S.A. Corey’s best-selling hit Leviathan Wakes earned Hugo and Locus Award nominations. In Caliban’s War, the second chapter of Corey’s Expanse series, a desperate Earth politician works tirelessly to prevent war from reigniting. Meanwhile, upheaval takes root on Venus and Ganymede. And amidst this tumult, James Holden and his crew on the Rocinante are charged with the impossible task of saving humanity from a terrifying fate.

    Story
    Would you listen to Caliban's War again? Why?

    Yes I would and have. The way this series of books is written you have parallel threads from differing viewpoints telling the story. This means that If you have a favorite character you can skip ahead following that character and for the most part retain the sense of the storyline.

    Then you can go over it again with another character etc.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bobbie the Martian Marine was my favorite.


    What does Jefferson Mays bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a good job of simply reading the story so that you forget who is reading the book and the characters take center stage


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The very end when an old character makes an unexpected appearance


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next book.

    Two years after the un-hatching of Callayan President Neiland’s plot to make the capital city of Tanusha the center of the Federation, Callay is under siege. So begins the third installment of this gripping trilogy from an exciting new sci-fi author. A powerful faction of conservative Fleet captains has surrounded Callay, at Earth’s behest, and is threatening a blockade - or worse. A fearful Earth does not wish to lose direct control of its precious war machine, and there are fears of civil war.

    I.M.Skeptic says: "Great Series, Lots of action , good story"
