Description-

  • The explosive third novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series on Syfy!


    For generations, the solar system — Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt — was humanity's great frontier. Until now. The alien artifact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has appeared in Uranus's orbit, where it has built a massive gate that leads to a starless dark.
    Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artifact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from April 8, 2013
    Corey (a shared pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) delivers a politically complex and pulse-pounding page-turner to continue the Expanse space opera series. Not too long after the events of Caliban’s War, the alien matter-manipulating protomolecule that had taken over Venus catapults mysterious mechanisms out beyond the orbit of Uranus. Those mechanisms build a thousand-kilometer-wide ring that the governments of Earth, Mars, and the Outer Planets Alliance all race to investigate. Capt. James Holden of the Rocinante plans to be on the other side of the solar system during those investigations, but the government of Mars files suit to reclaim the Rocinante and forces Holden’s crew to schlep a news team out to the Ring. Meanwhile, Clarissa Melpomene “Melba” Mao, the daughter of disgraced tycoon Jules-Pierre Mao, sets up an intricate plan of revenge against Holden for his actions against her father. Corey perfectly balances character development with action and uses shifts in point of view to keep the large cast intimate. Politics, philosophical ideas, and humor mingle in a tale that will shock and surprise. New readers should start with book one; series fans will find this installment the best yet.

    Starred review from May 15, 2013

    When the alien artifact that has plagued the planets of the near solar system--Earth, Mars, the Moon and the Asteroid Belt--from its Venutian haven reveals its construction of a massive gate into the darkness within Uranus's orbits, a flotilla of military and scientific spaceships sets out to explore the artifact. Accompanying the mission on the Rocante is Capt. Jim Holden and his crew, who have had more interactions with the entity than anyone else in the galaxy. But Holden soon finds that he plays a crucial and deadly role in this gate's appearance. VERDICT High adventure equaling the best space opera has to offer, cutting-edge technology, and a group of unforgettable characters bring the third installment of Corey's epic space drama (after Caliban's War and Leviathan Wakes) to an action-filled close while leaving room for more stories to unfold. Perhaps one of the best tales the genre has yet to produce, this superb collaboration between fantasy author Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck should reawaken an interest in old-fashioned storytelling and cinematic pacing. Highly recommended.

  • George R.R. Martin "It's been too long since we've had a really kickass space opera. LEVIATHAN WAKES is interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written, the kind of SF that made me fall in love with the genre way back when, seasoned with a dollop of horror and a dash of noir. Jimmy Corey writes with the energy of a brash newcomer and the polish of a seasoned pro. So where's the second book?"—George R.R. Martin
