|From The Publisher*||The fifth novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series!|
A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle.
Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price.
And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.

|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 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|
