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.

Very exciting third book of the series. Doors and corners will always get you when you follow Holden.

Good versus Bad
April 20th, 2015
Enjoyed the book but the divide between the good characters and the bad ones is a little too obvious. Plot is good and the book holds ones attention throughout. Enjoyed it.

Consistently Great

This series never ceases to amaze me. I didn't even realize how attached I am to the characters until I started worrying about them. Which sounds silly but its a sign of good character development.

Thumpingly good book. Cinematic epic and still nuanced in it's character relationships and themes. One of my favourite books of last year. Looking forward to more.

Not bad, but not great
June 10th, 2013
This was the weakest Expanse novel so far. It was a pity to see such a cartoony antagonist in one of Corey's books.
