Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The sixth novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series--now a major television series!

A revolution brewing for generations has begun in fire. It will end in blood.
The Free Navy - a violent group of Belters in black-market military ships - has crippled the Earth and begun a campaign of piracy and violence among the outer planets. The colony ships heading for the thousand new worlds on the far side of the alien ring gates are easy prey, and no single navy remains strong enough to protect them.
James Holden and his crew know the strengths and weaknesses of this new force better than anyone. Outnumbered and outgunned, the embattled remnants of the old political powers call on the Rocinante for a desperate mission to reach Medina Station at the heart of the gate network.
But the new alliances are as flawed as the old, and the struggle for power has only just begun.

Review Quote*This is a high-octane continuation of a series that has quickly become the biggest thing in science fiction.-The B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog on Babylon's Ashes
Review Quote*"The science fictional equivalent of A Song of Ice and Fire...only with fewer beheadings and way more spaceships."-NPR Books on Cibola Burn
Review Quote*"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
Review Quote*"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
Review Quote*"Corey's splendid fourth Expanse novel blends adventure with uncommon decency."-Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Cibola Burn
Review Quote*"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
Review Quote*"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
Review Quote*"An excellent space operatic debut in the grand tradition of Peter F. Hamilton."-Charles Stross on Leviathan Wakes
Review Quote*"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
