Publisher's Summary

For generations the solar system--Mars, the moon, the asteroid belt--was humanity's great frontier. Until now. The alien artefact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has emerged to build a massive structure outside the orbit of Uranus: a gate that leads into a starless dark.

Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artefact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.

    "Another enjoyable romp"

    Another enjoyable romp from Corey’s “Expanse” series. Our heroes, Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante, have new problems – as if the proto-molecule and all it has been creating weren’t enough already! This 3rd novel of the series sometimes lacked the break-neck pace of the earlier books, but there are nice plot developments, new characters to introduce and of course lots of action sequences. Same narrator, Jefferson Mays, as 1st two books – he does a good job.

    "The Expanse Series Continues to Impress."
    Any additional comments?

    Although, in my opinion, it is not as good as the first two books, Abaddon's Gate is great continuation of the series. The Authors continue to flesh out their universe and developed well thought out characters. I eagerly await the next installment.

    Story
    "Excellent, better than book 2"
    If you could sum up Abaddon's Gate in three words, what would they be?

    Old-school space opera


    What did you like best about this story?

    The scale of things feel bigger, more important. And some awesome new ideas are introduced as the story's universe expands. And as always, new lovable characters.

    "Excellent 3rd book in the series"

    Once again Corey manages to introduce interesting new characters to interact and play off your old favourite. The story is well formed and wants you to keep coming back but it is the interaction between the crew that keeps me coming back.

    "Good story, but performance clean up needed"

    The story is fantastic, like the other books great characters. certainly worth a listen or read.

    Seems there are a few repeating sections - not sure if this is software related or the recording.
