Publisher's Summary

The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds, and the rush to colonise has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Illus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire. Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world.
James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the heart of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail. And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilisation which once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed them.
Cibola Burn is the exhilarating fourth novel in the New York Times best-selling Expanse series, following the Hugo-nominated Leviathan Wakes, Caliban's War, and Abaddon's Gate.
Please note: The original recording has now been replaced with a new performance by Jefferson Mays. If you own this audiobook, simply re-download it from your library to access the new recording.

written for TV but good

good story interesting characters. Feels written for TV. Just enough to qualify as good but not great. When action does happen it feels right very tightly written.

A good story, badly narrated

The change of narrator really made this a difficult book to get through. I probably wouldn't have stuck with if not for the knowledge that the next book goes returns to the previous narrator.

I wouldn't say that this book's narrator is inherently bad, but he did not seem to understand the characters who he was portraying. For example, Miller is made to sound like a robot, and his narration of Avasarala's lines is beyond awful.

The narration which just involves telling the story is fine, but this book is dialogue heavy, and as such the majority of the narration is quite jarring to listen to.

If you're invested in the series, there's still a good story here, so if you can handle the narration definitely still give it a listen...

dont swap the narrator of the first 3 books!

god awful narration. all the individual character voices are gone. avasarala is supposed to be Indian, not voiced as an American! can only listen for ten minutes at a time out of annoyance, no idea if the story is any good or not after 6 chapters. I'll read the book instead.

Good book ruined by terrible narrator.

Not finished this yet but it is painful to get through. Not only is this a different narrator he is very poor too. I don't wish to demonize the guy but his narration is very flat and stunded and it has completely spoiled this book for me. Im tempted to skip this one and just read the next one.

Loved the story, but why change the narrator!

As always these book continue to be an awesome ride filled with characters I love to hear about. Was super happy to hear from Bobby and Avesarila again.

My major disappointment is from the change of the narrator. Accents change, and types of voices, which in the case of Amos change his personality to me.

Apart from that, an awesome listen.

TERRIBLE narration

Oh no! New narrator!
This guy delivered a stilted delivery and inhumanly bizzare inflection worthy of a nineties speech-synthesizer.
Way overcooked accents - British, German - and will male narrators please STOP voicing ALL women characters with this breathy, insipid tone that just belittles the characters and women everywhere.
Gahhhh, been loving the series up to this point, and this performance really took me out of the story. Thank the Lord Jefferson Mays is back for the next one.
