Description-

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


    ENTER A NEW FRONTIER.


    "An empty apartment, a missing family, that's creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave."


    The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.


    Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth.


    James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail.


    And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed it.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from April 7, 2014
    Interstellar gates, relics of a long-vanished civilization, offer access to a thousand star systems. Despite that bounty of planets, territory disputes still threaten the war refugees who fled to the safety of a world they call Ilus. Royal Charter Energy prefers to call it New Terra, and claims it under U.N. charter. Fearing the vast corporation’s encroachment on their home, the colonists commit an act of terrorism that leads to a spiral of violence. Dispatched to rebuild the peace, spaceship captain James Holden is caught between two factions determined to win at any cost; worse, even as the local fauna turn on the humans, remnants of the force that exterminated an alien civilization are beginning to wake. Corey’s splendid fourth Expanse novel (after Abaddon’s Gate) blends adventure with uncommon decency. Even as hostile biochemistries vie with slumbering war machines for a chance to exterminate squabbling people, a spark of humor and hope suggests that despite ourselves, we might find a way to prevail.

  • NPR Books on Cibola Burn The science fictional equivalent of A Song of Ice and Fire... only with fewer beheadings and way more spaceships.
  • George R.R. Martin on Leviathan Wakes 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?
  • Library Journal on Cibola Burn (Starred Review) Combining an exploration of real human frailties with big SF ideas and exciting thriller action, Corey cements the series as must-read space opera.
  • io9 on Cibola Burn The Expanse is the best space opera series running at full tilt right now, and Cibola Burn continues that streak of excellence.
  • Publishers Weekly on Abaddon's Gate A politically complex and pulse-pounding page-turner.... Corey perfectly balances character development with action... series fans will find this installment the best yet.
  • Charles Stross on Leviathan Wakes An excellent space operatic debut in the grand tradition of Peter F. Hamilton.
  • Library Journal on Abaddon's Gate 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.
  • io9.com on Abaddon's Gate Literary space opera at its absolute best.
  • Washington Post on Abaddon's Gate [T]he authors are superb with the exciting bits: Shipboard coups and battles are a thrill to follow.
  • Publishers Weekly on Leviathan Wakes Riveting interplanetary thriller.
