glad they put the story back on track

Weird alien shit. that's what got me into this series and this novel delivers. As much as I liked books 5-6, they took a bit of a detour from what made this series so enticing. I understood the necessity of the Free Navy, but it felt a little too much like filler. Our patience, however, has been rewarded.

It's a good one

It didn't grab me the same way the other books did. It's still good. I enjoyed it. the guy who reads them is as awesome as always. it just feels like a stop gap story, before you get to the real thing.

the expanse expands

I've been hooked on this series ever since the tv adaptation turned my brain toward it. Jefferson Mays does a wonderful job of providing characterization while remaining transparent enough to let the writing still shine on its own.

Such Rich Believable Characters

Corey writes stories 1 part arc 2 parts character development. All sides of the story are so we'll represented and told that you end up empathizing with the antagonist in the same breath that your cursing them. I always get completely absorbed in these. My only complaint is that I listened to this so soon after it's release I'll have to wait forever for the next one.

Keeps getting better

This volume brings the Expanse universe to the precipice and I cannot wait to get the final instalment into my ears. The writing is superb. The narration is world class.

Jefferson Mays + The Expanse = audiobook nirvana

Another great addition to the series! My life was put on hold until I was finished listening!

This instalment moves the proto molecule and human history plots forward significantly.

Worth every minute.

Big leap in space and time.

What made the experience of listening to Persepolis Rising the most enjoyable?

Jefferson Mays as always performs this book with precision and grace. His character voice variances are clear and his dialogue diction is superb. The familiar characters are well written and remain true to their personas from the past books.

If you’ve listened to books by James S. A. Corey before, how does this one compare?

Whoa, so there's a 30+ year time lapse since the last book Babylon's Ashes. Which throws the reader off a bit at the start. The Authors do their best to quickly catch you up that it's been a few decades of frontier missions for the crew and introduce you to the governmental factions that have evolved since the last book but it's still an odd transition. It was necessary to advance the story and allow the new villain the time to develop fearsome new tech based on the protomolecule. Once you ease past that initial time lapse shock it's business as usual for the rough and tumble crew of the now very old and no longer state of the art Rocinante.

What about Jefferson Mays’s performance did you like?

All of it. He's fantastic.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I blew through this book. It had enough to keep you listening and I really enjoy the universe, characters, and story so it was enough to keep me hooked.

Any additional comments?

It's a set up book that lines up a big finale.

Beginning of a new story

Persepolis Rising is James S A Corey's 7th full length installment in the Expanse universe. At the end of Book 6, a splinter group of the Martain navy defected to Laconia with a sample of the protomolecule. 30 years later, with the Sol system getting back on its feet and a fledging world spanning commerce enterprise beginning to take off, Laconia returns to impose itself as the ruler of all humanity. Jim and crew are still around and get caught up in the initial conquest of Medina station. Relative to the technological might of Laconia, the rest of human is clearly outclassed. Think Star Wars episode 4.

The sci-fi elements are in line with the Expanse universe. Laconia displays some unique adaptations of protomolecule tech with strange, self healing spaceships and powerful weapons with advanced tactical gear. Also reintroduced is the mysterious vanquisher of the original alien tech creators. The main characters have aged well, but this set (assuming a trilogy for the complete story arc to finish) must be the finale for James Holdren and crew. Corey also does a tiny bit of housecleaning with send-offs for a few long time characters.

Jefferson Mays continues to perform admirably with another excellent narration. The pace is easy going with good character distinction.

Wow!

Wow! What a story. Didn’t see this one coming. A real plot twist here for sure. James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are some of the best characters the genre of Sci-Fi has ever given rise to. The moral compass displayed by the characters in these books is like a breath of fresh air considering the current moral backdrop against that which we’re currently living under. These two guys weave a hell of a tale. There was only one point in the story which had a predictable outcome. Although the situation wasn’t. Can’t say enough good things about my new favorite series. Won’t say anything about the plot line as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Yeah made a fanboy outta me.

Little More Pep

The seventh book in the Expanse series is not the books that I felt in love with. I found that Persepolis Rising to be too dramatic and slow for my ears to listen. I was hoping for a little more pep in the newest addition, but just like the sixth book, it felt very underwhelming. In Persepolis Rising, there were no heroes or heroine's climactic arc in the story. Everything pointed to the bad, worst, and evil. I enjoyed the first five novels in the series, but book #6 and #7 are total downers. I'm hoping that James S. A. Corey is not making us walk the plank in the final upcoming two books to complete the series.

Really Disappointing

This book takes place 30 years after Babylon's Ashes. Jumping forward can be a device that can envigorate a literary world. This book does a huge disservice to the characters we've grown to love. Ending with such an ambiguous thud, we are really unsure where our heroes are left in the end. It does not build a world where there is more to look forward to visiting.

I really would have been much happier to hear about the 30 years of adventures we missed.

Interesting, but I’m left unsatisfied.

I enjoyed this book and I enjoy all of the Expanse books, but I feel that the part of the book I enjoy the most is the world building of the creators of the proto-molecule. What happened to them, what is this race that killed them off and why did they do it? What other kinds of technologies did these proto-aliens leave behind? These are the sort of questions that make me excited to read these books and I feel like the authors are more interested in showing what the human race would do if they were to stumble across these amazing technologies. So, although that is an interesting direction to take the series in, I’m left unfulfilled after reading this book. I’ve been hoping that they will bring in some bridge to connect humanity with the proto-race the way that the Miller thing was, but it just hasn’t happened again. Here’s to hoping the next book won’t be pretty much completely politically driven, like this one and the last one were.

Nothing in the first 10 hours is interesting or really matters at all... becoming a theme for the series

Series has two major issues and they’re probably connected. Firstly the TV show “The Expanse” based on this series is better than the books. That isn’t to say either is bad they’re both good really good I just enjoy the show more. (Granted I probably wouldn’t feel that way if I hadn’t read the first few books, but that’s a whole different topic). The show took the best parts of the books and executed the ideas in new and better ways while sticking to a majority of the source material at the same time. Basically that leads to problem number 2.

2. TOO MUCH PADDING... this series seems like it’s been floundering for the last three books. It seems like the author has an endgame and hints at it towards the beginning to hook you in and then never
addresses it in the story again. This world has been built, there isn’t world building to be done at this point especially when you aren’t introducing new characters (this series needs a new big bad more than the MCU needs one at least those movies have an antagonist). Keep the action, military, banter, sci-if tech, biology, drop the Star Wars Prequels sitting around and talking entire time crap.

All that being said this book does finally get somewhat interesting and exciting ABOUT 10 HOURS IN. Get the cliff notes don’t waste your money.

Not the Expanse I fell in love with..

I just feel like Corey put 30 years worth of stories in the Trash. I loved the heroes in the Expanse and the Rosenate. Less than 10% of the book is on the ship.. It felt like Disney and Star Wars heartache....

If Alastair Reynolds & Tom Clancy had a love child

If Alastair Reynolds and Tom Clancy had a love child it would be The Expanse. The depth of characters, captivating use of hard science and incredibly woven plots are almost unrivaled. It's one of the best book series in any genre. I don't make that claim lightly. And a key component to any great achievement is a beginning, a middle and an end. For those reviews complaining about the 30 year gap - you have to end a series somehow. Dragging it out forever, grasping at new adventures and plots and bad guys only diminishes the central arc of the main story. The time jump sets a great stage for the ending of the series. Persepolis Rising is a little slower on action, but the wonderfully developed characters continue to hold it all together while the science and mystery are still in your face and brilliantly textured. And there's still the awesome Expanse A#@ kicking that fans have come to expect. Corey continues to create scenes that you can see vividly in your mind as they play out, and stick with you long after you've read (heard) them. Jefferson Mays' delivery does all the great writing justice. His narration throughout the series continues to be perfect. Do yourself a favor, start with Leviathan Wakes and listen to the whole series. The story does not lag and all the books create an intricate piece of the puzzle. Persepolis Rising does exactly what it needs to for the betterment/completion of The Expanse. Plus, the last sentence of the book would be my new life theme if I was a lot more of a badass. It's real cool.

Good but flawed entry to a great series

I am a big fan of the series and have read all the novels and novelas. This entry was enjoyable but not my favorite nor my least favorite. The authors continue to excel in their ability to create exceptional narrative (and Jefferson Mays continues his series of terrific performances) and are very good to great with plot. I feel the setting scope and size is getting away from the authors though. Earlier novels' character viewpoints felt right and aligned with the reader in the face of the large but covert conspiracy taking place. But now events seem so much larger than the characters (or at least some of the newer pov characters) and their perspectives seem... Inadequate. For example, Drummer reminds me more of a student body president and not arguably the premier head of state in all humanity. Which leads me to my biggest criticism: Characterization. Many of the characters did not feel legitimate. For example, see Drummer above, and Singh was totally unbelievable as a senior officer in a Spartan-esque military that feeds soldiers that fall asleep on duty to the protomolecule. The majority of the first act was introducing or reintroducing pov characters. The first few chapters felt like a repeated formula: Here is character X. He or she is either a psychopath or a flawed hero who is wrestling with insecurity but finds comfort with his or her love of Y and here are some of those relationship's tender idiosyncrasies. Rinse and repeat with the next character. It really made the first act a hard read, but once the story got going, it was much more enjoyable. Also, while I liked that the setting moved forward by three decades to advance the story, it seemed like the characters took a time machine to get there. Except for a failed marriage or so, the main characters seem identical to who they were in the final chapters of the previous novel. It feels jarringly artificial.

Critical points aside, the Expanse is still a great series and I very much recommend the series to anyone who enjoys sci-fi or political conspiracy genres.
