Publisher's Summary

James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    "Amazing Story"

    An incredible new universe to explore in the not-so-distant future. Good performance and very thought provoking. Even better when paired with the TV adaptation currently running

    "Much better than I expected"

    I watched two episodes of the TV show and gave up on it. I may have to rethink that after listening to this novel.

    Not only did this have a strong and exciting ending, but it held my attention throughout the story. We follow two deeply flawed protagonists through their initially separate plot lines and their rocky collaboration. They are both exasperating at times.

    The narrator is excellent.

    "Fantastic story"

    I thoroughly loved it. It is very well written, and easy to follow despite the story happening in many places at once.

    "Just starting out"

    I recently saw the T.V. series based on these books and became instantly enthralled. While the two seasons of the show are great the books (as usual) are much more refined and ensnaring.

    Leviathan Wakes introduces you to Corey's dark yet enthralling universe that pits man against man by one of mankind's oldest struggles. The story makes you reflect on yourself through the characters development. Great book and so far great series. Highly recommend for Sci-fi fans.

    "This narrator is not for me"
    What didn’t you like about Jefferson Mays’s performance?

    I hate to be so blunt, but I gave up on the audiobook after three chapters. The voice just drones on and on. I will read the Kindle version instead.

    "Terrific fast-moving story"

    I enjoyed this book more than I enjoy the tv show. In fact, it makes the show better than it really is and more understandable.
