The fifth novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times best-selling Expanse series - now being produced for television by the SyFy Channel!
A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle.
Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price.
And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.

Terrifically fun, though increasingly predictable

Best Entry of the Series - Five BIG Stars
First, yes, Jefferson Mays is back as narrator. While I didn't personally think the narration of Cibola Burn was all that horrible, it is nice to have Mays back. Second, I felt this series seriously running out of steam after Cibola Burn. The series felt artificially stretched and was starting to show definite signs of losing the punch that made the first three books so memorable. I am here to announce that Nemesis Games represents a massive right-turn for this series. For the first time the crew of the Rocinante is split up and scattered, each to tell their own story and give us some much needed background. These personal journeys are set against a backdrop of interstellar war that makes all the previous conflicts seem like minor skirmishes. As always, these stories are steeped in modern day social issues, racism and economic equality, etc. While a few familiar characters from previous novels return, there is no new cast guest stars here, which I found added a level of complexity to this novel, easily making it most personal of the series. Five big BIG stars for Nemesis Games.
