Publisher's Summary

In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife-edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship, Rocinante, have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace.

In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and the Belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it. New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient pattern of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity - and of the Rocinante - unexpectedly and forever....

Once again gripping.

Heard it twice already.
Best epilogue yet.
Curious how Netflix will mend it all together in the TV series.

Best one for a while

As usual I've heard a few complaints about pace but that's what these books have always been about - characters.

I enjoyed every minute and am now really looking forward to the next one.

Seriously can't get enough of this series!!

The Expanse series has genuinely been one of the most enjoyable things I've read/listened to in a long time. Well, since Game of Thrones to be fair. Every book just makes me what more. cleverly written, depth to the characters and genuine OMG moments. The audible versions are brilliant and the narrator really captures the feel of each complex character. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for The next one!

Is this the beginning of the end

3 decades on and then it all breaks with the return of an old advisory. This looks to be the start of the end game in The Expanse but with the level of thought and detail it's will be something special
