We are not alone.

On Ganymede, breadbasket of the outer planets, a Martian marine watches as her platoon is slaughtered by a monstrous supersoldier. On Earth, a high-level politician struggles to prevent interplanetary war from reigniting. And on Venus, an alien protomolecule has overrun the planet, wreaking massive, mysterious changes and threatening to spread out into the solar system.

In the vast wilderness of space, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante have been keeping the peace for the Outer Planets Alliance. When they agree to help a scientist search war-torn Ganymede for a missing child, the future of humanity rests on whether a single ship can prevent an alien invasion that may have already begun.

Caliban’s War is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the critically acclaimed Leviathan Wakes.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Tense and thrilling.”

    SciFi Now

  • Caliban’s War is even better than Leviathan Wakes. It’s old-fashioned space opera, the kind of SF that I cut my teeth on, a real page-turner set in a vividly imagined solar system…Superlatively written.”

    George R. R. Martin

  • “Compelling characters and a plot that combines political intrigue with military sf create a memorable story that begs for film adaptation.”

    Library Journal

  • “Topnotch…The characters, many familiar from before, grow as the story expands; tension mounts, action explodes and pages turn relentlessly.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books, Best Fiction 2012
  • A 2013 Locus Award Finalist

    " I loved everything about this book. (Even more than the first one.) But one thing I loved especially a lot was the great women characters. Awesome space opera with believable ladies? Sign me up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ted White | 2/7/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allen Massey | 1/31/2014

    " I was very impressed with this sequel. Corey's writing was even better than the first book and the story continues to grow. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcus | 1/25/2014

    " Parts of this epic sci-fi thriller/dramedy are even better than the first, but I still think some of the characters are a little flat. Yes kids and molestation and shit that's horrible to hear about makes good drama, but they don't necessarily make an OK story any better or flat characters any more interesting. The ending to this one though... woah. Hold on to your bowels cause its going to be like hitting ten gees acceleration without your meds. "
