I first read this on the 24th December 2019.
This is the seventh novel in the Expanse series.
Almost thirty years have passed. Earth, Mars and the Belt have settled into a more relaxed
relationship and the Rocinante crew have comfortably slipped into middle-age.
However on the other side of the Ring, in the system of Laconia, High Consul Winston
Duarte has been building an empire. He has embraced the dangerous opportunities promised
by the proto-molecule to develop astounding military superiority.
Now Duarte is expanding his empire to encompass the Solar system. The Solar
System is so out-classed by the his military power that we will, humiliatingly, be subsumed
into his empire almost without a struggle.
Left with a nail-biting ending, we can only wait for the sequel, "Tiamet's Wrath".
Luckily I had that book also so I was able to read straight through. Gosh, it's just great.
