Publisher's Summary

In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife-edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship, Rocinante, have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace.
In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and the Belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it. New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient pattern of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity - and of the Rocinante - unexpectedly and forever....

A very new kind of twist to the expanse story

Laconia finally makes is move. Be ready for action, new technologies and interesting physics again.

Maybe the best one yet

I find it hard to review books without giving spoilers so I'll just say that this is another awesome entry in the series, as the title says I think it might even be the best one so far. Can't wait for book 8!

what to make of this..

It felt great to get back to this series after a year hiatus, and all the characters are just as familiar and distinct. James SA Corey are a fantastic writing duo, who consider every decision they make and create incredibly realistic science fiction. That's mainly a strength but it's perhaps a slight weakness in this book, which jumps forwards by a really meaty chunk of time in order to arrive at another significant moment in history. I wanted to grow old with Amos Holden et al, but that privilege has been taken from me.

One of the better

This one takes an unexpected turn, but it really solidifies this series as something better. The ideological lines become more solid, and the lines of morality blur. Very interesting, very good to see them shaking things up a little.

Excellent story but a little short

Loved the story and happy to see some fruit coming from the Calibans War storyline - but the ending leaves too many storylines up in the air, some more conclusions would be great.
