Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The seventh novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series.
An old enemy returns.
In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace.
In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it.
New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient patterns of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity -- and of the Rocinante -- unexpectedly and forever...
Persepolis Rising is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the bestselling Babylon's Ashes.

Review Quote*"A standout tale of violence, intrigue, ambition, and hope. ... Corey cranks up the tension relentlessly in this fast-paced story of heroes and rebels fighting for freedom. With enough thrills and intrigue for three Hollywood blockbusters, the novel stands alone nicely, making it easy for new readers as well as diehard series fans to dive right in."-Publishers Weekly on Nemesis Games
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 authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck should reawaken an interest in old-fashioned storytelling and cinematic pacing. Highly recommended."-Library Journal on Abaddon's Gate
