Summary

For someone who didn't intend to wreck the solar system's fragile balance of power, Jim Holden did a pretty good job of it. While Earth and Mars have stopped shooting each other, the core alliance is shattered. The outer planets and the Belt are uncertain in their new - possibly temporary - autonomy.
Then, on one of Jupiter's moons, a single super-soldier attacks, slaughtering soldiers of Earth and Mars indiscriminately and reigniting the war. The race is on to discover whether this is the vanguard of an alien army, or if the danger lies closer to home.

Critic reviews

"This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three" (Publishers Weekly)
"Great characters, excellent dialogue, memorable fights, freakish experiments, and twisty-turny mysteries . . . Only an excellent book series can pull them all off, and the Expanse will definitely be added to the shortlist of science fiction tales that manage to do so" ( wired.com)
"Those who enjoyed the first book will enjoy CALIBAN'S WAR as much, if not more . . . A crackingly enjoyable read" ( SFF World)

Excellent sequel to Leviathan Wakes

Excellent second entry in the Expanse series following the discovery of an Alien Proto-Molecule in our Solar System and the effects it has on individuals, on politics and on the military.
Many of the original characters are back alone with a few new ones. I especially liked the potty-mouthed Politician and Granny Avasarala.
Very well read by Jefferson Mays, I’m really looking forward to the third book.

Great book

Really intense and funny. I watched the first two seasons of the expanse and although this includes like half the season it kind of puts things in a better order than the series as much as it feels more natural in its character development. Love the difference in the characters and how interesting human relationships are even on different planets. No real connection to the first book it was a great sequel and standalone, the ending however ... well I’ll leave that to you and hope you enjoy it.

A must for any science fiction enthusiast

Get sucked into this realistic, yet amazing world set in the not do distant future. Humanity is splitting into factions across the solar system, a great but terrible discovery leads to the brink of war for all of them. We follow select characters who manage to get in the middle of it. It's tense, charming and fun. The characters Are memorable and distinct. A realistic approach to spaceflight, physics and generally every aspect og human settlement of space is weaved perfectly into human interactions. Fantastic!
