The sixth novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times best-selling Expanse series - now a major television series from the Syfy. A revolution brewing for generations has begun in fire. It will end in blood.
The Free Navy - a violent group of Belters in black-market military ships - has crippled the Earth and begun a campaign of piracy and violence among the outer planets. The colony ships heading for the thousand new worlds on the far side of the alien ring gates are easy prey, and no single navy remains strong enough to protect them.
James Holden and his crew know the strengths and weaknesses of this new force better than anyone. Outnumbered and outgunned, the embattled remnants of the old political powers call on the Rocinante for a desperate mission to reach Medina Station at the heart of the gate network.
But the new alliances are as flawed as the old, and the struggle for power has only just begun. As the chaos grows, an alien mystery deepens. Pirate fleets, mutiny, and betrayal may be the least of the Rocinante's problems. And in the uncanny spaces past the ring gates, the choices of a few damaged and desperate people may determine the fate of more than just humanity.

Gees what happened?
I am a huge Expanse series fan. I will listen to this series a few times in my lifetime, but I will dread book six. Twenty hours of book and maybe four hours of entertainment. The authors got insanely self indulgent into the inner thoughts of minds of all the characters, relevant or not. Do any of you remember Dr. Prax Mays from book one? Well he is in this one and at one time, we got to hear about how the hair of one of his university professors looked. Yup. Page fillers galore. If book one had been like book six, I would rate it one star and return it for a refund and ignore the rest of the series. But since the first five were so awesome, I will make the long wait for book seven and buy it. If that one sucks as well, then I will consider the Expanse series as ending with number five. Not since Firefly or SG1 have I looked forward to the next installment so much. Now, blah. I see where they are going. No more being fascinated by the creation of the gates and all the worlds beyond. Now it's just the political landscape, and we get to hear every thought, every doubt, every nuance of every character in every scene. Maybe they are trying to create another War and Peace. A big fat book I could never quite get through.
Jefferson Mays was great as always.
lots of filler
