Leviathan Falls (The Expanse #9) by James S.A. Corey Book Review 01, Jan

4.5/5

LEVIATHAN FALLS is the final installment of the Expanse series and an overall satisfying one. We've been through the Rocinante's adventures past numerous events like the Protomolecule, Ringates, devastation of Earth at the hands of Marco Inaros, and then the rise of Laconia. We finally get a resolution to the plot of the Goths, though, and dealing with a foe that is so far above humanity that they wiped out a race who was already millions of years more advanced than mankind.

Tiamat's Wrath (The Expanse #8) by James S.A. Corey Book Review 30, Apr

4.5/5

TIAMAT'S WRAITH is the latest volume of the Expanse. The Expanse struck science fiction like a breath of fresh air and is basically serving as Game of Throne's slightly less successful brother in bringing genre fiction to the mainstream. It's a high concept series about wealth, power, politics, and an alien molecule that defies the laws of physics. Honestly, you can tell how much I like the Expanse in the fact that I'd still be happy to read the series if they ditched all of the alien technology business completely.

Persepolis Rising (The Expanse #7) by James S.A. Corey Book Review 29, Apr

4/5

THE EXPANSE is one of the best series currently out there. It's also a series which has had its ups and downs. Some of them I've given 3 stars and others I've given 5 stars. I've always come back to it, though. Here, PERSEPOLIS RISING is setting the stage for the end of the line as we time skip 30 years to when our heroes are now in their 60s. They don't act like they are sixty so maybe it's a case of "sixty is the new thirty" thanks to advanced medical technology of the future but they do creak a bit more.
