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....

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.

once more unto the breach Holden goes

if you have become a fan of thevseries this is a must read. if not, get it just for the joy of listeing to jefferson mays' narration.
as the next in the expanse saga this ticks all the blocks of chracters development, plot and society exposed to new tech (epstein fusion drives and alien protomolecule). for the real science of scifi this falls short only the forerunners have done such a great job of illustration. In this book, the authors explore the full extent of the political ramifications and it's ultimate conclusions of the rise of empires.
as a collective the expanse series is not crowned by perseplis but rather well supported and able to stand alone. its a great scifi romp with all the ingredients like marine fist fights, space battles, combat stratergy, romance, desire for power and much more.

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.
