1,300 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 Cortazar 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...… (mere)

Picking up where Persepolis Rising left off, we find the crew of the Rocinante scattered across different star systems and doing different stuff. Laconia is consolidating its position as the pre-eminent expression of humanity in the galaxy, but along with that goes a massive dollop of hubris - a scientific mission to survey many of the gate worlds is intended to find new weapons, whilst Dr. Cortázar has sold High Consul Duarte on the unquestionable benefits of life extension via protomolecule. What could possibly go wrong?

What indeed. Laconia's belief that the gate builders have the same motivations as humans and can be manipulated by displays of force in the same way as traditional human politics suggests blows up in their collective face, just at the same time as the Sol system resistance gets a lucky break. Things go downhill from there.

This instalment definitely kept me reading on into the small hours of the morning to see what happened next! There are some sad surprises and one revolving door, but overall the story is still on target. (Though I did raise an eyebrow where Chrisjen Avarsarala's grand-daughter commented on the old woman's likely reaction to her Laconian state funeral and then had to explain - for the benefit of some younger readers, I suspect - the significance of "you could power a planet by hooking a turbine to her right now"...)

I'm also increasingly finding that exploring the logic of Empire is causing the writers to slip some quite important realpolitik lessons into the text, which many people, especially those who would benefit the most from such lessons, will miss because this is "just" science fiction. Sigh. ( )

Still loving this series! The characters are still growing and evolving. That seems to me to be rare in a series this long. ( )
  Treebeard_404 | Jan 23, 2024 |
That took me a lot longer than I thought xD Allover, I think the book had its lengths. Like most books in the series, there's very little happening in the range of 10-40 and 60-90% of the book, and all the action happens in the middle and at the end. Could use more balance. But allover, I'm VERY interested in reading the final book now... ( )

The writing is just as excellent as the previous books. But I thought the plot was a bit slower with more political intrigue and less action than the other ones. ( )

Finished so it's fresh for the new/final season of The Expanse and a little bit after the [b:Leviathan Falls|28335699|Leviathan Falls (The Expanse #9)|James S.A. Corey|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1600283641l/28335699._SY75_.jpg|48382891] release!

Outside of the Roci crew, Dr. Elvi Okoye is my favorite character, mostly because I'm also a biologist by training and I love her sense of wonder about Weird Alien Science.

I think the Timothy reveal was more obvious in audiobook form (I audibly gasped and had a :D expression when that played in my car), whereas if I was reading I'd have to pick it up from context clues... really interesting to think about the ways different mediums affect the way we get a story. I've only listened to The Expanse via audiobooks so I'm not entirely sure about spelling for some of the ships and places (Bara-gown complex? nope, google tells me Bara Gaon).

Really enjoyed Teresa as a POV character, especially the way she frames her world vs. Holden etc.

Onwards to Leviathan Falls! ( )

For all of the intrigue, manipulation, and combat that form the book’s plot points, gentler relationships also run through the whole story: love, loyalty, trust, comradeship, respect, and compassion.

Time passes. The things you love lose their lustre. Your nearest and dearest die. And sooner or later, it dawns on you that you will too. So when you see the end ahead, what then? Well, if you’re anything like the friends who became a family aboard the gunship Rocinante, you do what you’ve always done: you fight for what’s right, even when what’s right is difficult to picture in a galaxy gone wrong on your watch.
