Publisher's Summary

For someone who didn't intend to wreck the solar system's fragile balance of power, Jim Holden did a pretty good job of it. While Earth and Mars have stopped shooting each other, the core alliance is shattered. The outer planets and the Belt are uncertain in their new - possibly temporary - autonomy.

Then, on one of Jupiter's moons, a single super-soldier attacks, slaughtering soldiers of Earth and Mars indiscriminately and reigniting the war. The race is on to discover whether this is the vanguard of an alien army, or if the danger lies closer to home.

What the Critics Say

"This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three" (Publishers Weekly)

"Great characters, excellent dialogue, memorable fights, freakish experiments, and twisty-turny mysteries . . . Only an excellent book series can pull them all off, and the Expanse will definitely be added to the shortlist of science fiction tales that manage to do so" (wired.com)

"Those who enjoyed the first book will enjoy CALIBAN'S WAR as much, if not more . . . A crackingly enjoyable read" (SFF World)

    "Even better than the first one"

    Great space opera - feels classic and yet fresh.

    I missed Miller - he was substituted by Avasarala's greatness though. Also Prax was just too whiny.

    Those are small blemishes though. This is a must-listen :)

    "A Great Sequel to the Space Opera"
    Any additional comments?

    The Authors have not disappointed in this sequel, which could be better than the first installment.

    It is the same narrator as Leviathan Wakes and he continues to do a good job in making each character recognisable.

    "Excellent sequel to Leviathan Wakes"

    Excellent second entry in the Expanse series following the discovery of an Alien Proto-Molecule in our Solar System and the effects it has on individuals, on politics and on the military.
    Many of the original characters are back alone with a few new ones. I especially liked the potty-mouthed Politician and Granny Avasarala.
    Very well read by Jefferson Mays, I’m really looking forward to the third book.

    "Expansive, epic storytelling, well narrated."

    Rare combination of three dimensional characters and epic expansive thinking (huge politics, science fiction, mystery). Was gripped all the way through.

    "Complicated"
    Would you try another book written by James S. A. Corey or narrated by Jefferson Mays?

    probably not


    What was most disappointing about James S. A. Corey’s story?

    so complicated, too many characters and locations


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jefferson Mays?

    mark boyett


    What character would you cut from Caliban's War?

    at least half of them


    Any additional comments?

    it felt like a marathon, I was determined to finish it, I'm glad its finished.

    "Solid, Science Based and Fantastic"

    If you like solid sciences based SF with a good storyline, well developed and interesting characters and some really thought provoking elements, then this is for you! I loved it. Well performed, a great but human story. Very enjoyable.
