I first read this on the 24th December 2019.

This is the eighth novel in the Expanse series.

Continuing on from "Persepolis Rising", the Laconian dominion over the Solar System is becoming is become a dismal fact of life. Our Solar forces are simply out-classed. Duarte's occupation is so complete that it is becoming the new normal. The crew of the Rocinante must fight a rearguard action against this awful empire? But how can they even hope to resist, let alone triumph?

It's been a rip-roaring series with just one left to go. Read the books, then watch it all again on Amazon. I'm loving it.

In this incredible series, James S. A. Corey has dragged us off Earth; to planets, asteroids and space stations, swirling us up to the outer edges of the Solar System and then through a Stargate to alien worlds. For me It's been a multi-stage rocket ride, reading and discarding each book in turn as I roar up faster and higher. My head is spinning, too much has happened over nine books to take in and once I land I'm going to have start reading them again. All I can tell you what this series has: Interstellar empires, big guns, heroes and villains, alien tech, and such great heroes all bundled up into a tremendous story.

What's it got? Ohm it's got so much: Interstellar empires, big guns, alien tech, megalomaniac villains, and such wonderful heroes.

And of course there's one more book to come, expected towards the end of 2021.

Loaded on the 20th January 2021.
