    Guess I really liked it then, blew through it quicker than my favorite, Caliban's War.

    It was pretty action packed. Looking forward to your reaction to the beginning of Tiamat’s wrath

    I think I got to that part. I've been on this site since 2009, and I still don't know how to spoiler stuff.

    I was mostly referring to the time jump. That really threw me for a loop. But, pay attention to those shadow beings/ references. They're said in passing but come in to play in the next book.

    I have not. Was thinking about finally reading the Mars Trilogy by KSR.

    I barely finished the first Mars book. It was a slog for me.

    Red Rising great. It’s not a whole lot like expanse. Less scientific, but it’s a space opera as well. 5 books so far. Originally a trilogy. The author started a second trilogy. It’s so good.

    New novella coming out.

    Hey Expanse fans. There is a new novella on the horizon set in the universe of James S. A. Corey’s NYT-bestselling Expanse series. AUBERON explores a harsh and alien world and the age-old dangers that humanity has carried with it to the stars. Check out the cover and copy below.

    [​IMG]Auberon is one of the first and most important colony worlds in humanity’s reach, and the new conquering faction has come to claim it. Governor Rittenaur has come to bring civilization and order to the far outpost and guarantee the wealth and power of the Empire.

    But Auberon already has its own history, a complex culture, and a criminal kingpin named Erich with very different plans. In a world of deceit, violence, and corruption, the greatest danger Rittenaur faces is love.

    If you’re a fan of the novels but are new to the short fiction, check out jamessacorey.com for a full list of Expanse side stories. Auberon takes place between PERSEPOLIS RISING (US | UK) and TIAMAT’S WRATH (US | UK) so there is no danger of spoilers if you aren’t caught up to the most recent hardcover.

    Pre-order Auberon now from your favorite ebook and audio retailers.

    Amazon (US) | Amazon (UK) | iBooks | GooglePlay | Nook | Kobo | More Stores (US )

    Yesssss. They had done a novella in between most of the novels, but didn’t on the last one. I’m glad they’re coming back

    Just finished Leviathan Wakes and I've started Caliban's War. I was afraid that after watching the show that the books would seem tedious, knowing the general story arc. Far from it.
