Publisher Description

The fifth novel in James S. A. Corey’s New York Times bestselling Expanse series—now being produced for television by the Syfy channel.

A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle.

Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price.

And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.

  • “Interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written.”

    - George R. R. Martin on Leviathan Wakes
  • Combining an exploration of real human frailties with big sf ideas and exciting thriller action, Corey cements the series as must-read space opera.

    - Library Journal (starred review) on Cibola Burn
  • The Expanse series is the best space opera series running at full tilt right now, and Cibola Burn continues that streak of excellence.

    - io9 on Cibola Burn
  • Corey's splendid fourth Expanse novel blends adventure with uncommon decency.

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Cibola Burn
  • A politically complex and pulse-pounding page-turner.... Corey perfectly balances character development with action... series fans will find this installment the best yet.

    - Publishers Weekly on Abaddon's Gate
  • 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 on Leviathan Wakes
  • An excellent space operatic debut in the grand tradition of Peter F. Hamilton.

    - Charles Stross on Leviathan Wakes
  • 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.

    - Library Journal on Abaddon's Gate
  • Literary space opera at its absolute best.

  • Riveting interplanetary thriller.

    - Publishers Weekly on Leviathan Wakes
  • The science fictional equivalent of A Song of Ice and Fire...only with fewer beheadings and way more spaceships.

    " The Expanse series is renowned for its fantastic saga, rich set of well-developed characters, and of course, hard sci-fi. Nemesis Games, book 5 of the series, does not disappoint. I prefer the audiobook format because the reader, Jefferson Mays, unfolds the action, and voices the characters, in a manner that adds yet another rich layer of enjoyment. "
