Description

The eighth novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times best-selling Expanse series - now a major television series. 

Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper. 

In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay. 

At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father, the emperor, doesn't guess. 

And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. 

Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule - and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose - seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough....

Keeps getting better!

I felt the story lagging a bit in the most recent books, but this one brings back the high-stakes action and strange alien-ness this series started with. The ending felt like completing a chapter, and left me wanting to know more of the universe Corey is building.

as always, an amazing book

Jeffersonv Mays does an exemplary job. All the main characters have grown so much since The Expanse. Naomi is actually likable, now! I can't wait to find out how it all ends.

As good as Nemesis Games

TW is as good as NM, hands down. The story keeps on building and building and never let's up. The action is constant and enormous. And Jefferson Mays is the gift that keeps on giving.

Dialogue cut out at 14:41:40 end of chapter 39

The book was going great until the dialogue at 14:41:40 end of chapter 39 cut out and a male voice says "409" and I missed what was being said in the last lines of that chapter.

unfortunate bug in chapter 39

I'm enjoying the heck out of this story and performance, so it threw me when I heard the narrator interrupt their narration at the end of chapter 39 with the word 'four- oh-nine' before 'when they're not jokes'. I feel like I missed two or three critical seconds.

gives me a bit of empathy for the characters when they're 'Missing Time', I suppose.

For want of not revealing too much of this wonderful book...

I’ve actively chosen to keep my review what will seem overly simplistic, and moreover in no way fitting for this or any masterpiece, though I feel it a must. That said, I’ve already begun to listen a second time; for those not realizing the fact, keep in mind that this was just released (03.26.2019). That’s how good it is. And that’s how little I want to give away. If you want spoilers, read elsewhere. Thank-you.

Loving the series, 1 error in narration

This is easily my favorite science fiction series right now. To say that this is the story that I've been waiting for would give me too much credit for having high expectations and good taste in science fiction, and understanding too well its potential. I am surprised and delighted over and over again.

You've got interesting characters that grow and change, a good grounding in real science and philosophy (although the latter might be more appealing if it were more imaginative and less academic--kind of pins one to 20/21th century sensibilities), sociopolitical intrigue (even if this volume lacks Chrisjen Avasarala it's still a good book), extra-dimensional threat, and adventure on a grand scale--spanning more time and space than most other Sci-Fi.

My one and only grip is an editing error; at 14:40:25 the narration skips part of a sentence and seems include "409" in its place. The reading is otherwise excellent.

Christmas came Three Months later

Toward the end of the year, I always look forward to the holidays. Not because family time, good eating, and going broke at buying useless gifts, but James S. A. Corey (pen names for both authors), always publish another novel in the Expanse series usually in December. I wasn't a fan of "Persepolis Rising" for obvious reasons that I won't write about, but "Tiamat's Wrath" redeemed this series by 10 folds.

I couldn't get enough of this book. Each time I fell asleep in the evenings while listing, I needed to go back to see what I'd missed. These authors came back firing with all thrusters and #8 was exactly what I was hoping for. My only complaint is when they thanked George R. R. Martin at the beginning of the book. We all know that Martin doesn't finish anything!

Christmas came three months later and it brought me great joy at reading this book. I'm hoping it won't take Corey(s) too long to finish the Expanse. After finishing up "Tiamat's Wrath", I'm more stoked on how Amazon will continue on with the tv show.

Brilliant as ever!

As usual, I'm left jonesing for the next Expanse book immediately after finishing the last one. This one had a bunch of character development, some surprising, some a long time coming. Fantastic, and Jefferson Mays nails the narration as ever.

Really had me hooked!

We're really getting into the meat and potatoes of the story now! Not every entry in this series is amazing as the last but this one is definitely top 3 for me. Can't wait to hear how it all wraps up with the 9th (and final) book!

Jefferson Mays remains at the top of his game - he ruins other audiobooks with other narrators for me haha!

A thrilling continuation of an amazing series

James SA Corey continues the Expanse saga with another book of the same incredible caliber, action, and complexity. The storytelling, a fantastically paced blend of politics, character, and action, is a pleasure to read/listen to. Jefferson Mays is a talented narrator who brings each character to life with their own vocies, inflections, and tones. 10/10 would recommend this series and this book to any fan of amazing sci-fi.
