it was amazing
Recommended for: Space Sci Fi Fans

I was not expecting the story to get so much better. The Expanse series has been good up to now, but not exceptional. The TV conversion seemed strong and I wanted to get far ahead in the books before watching more of it - but I lost my enthusiasm in January after finishing the somewhat disappointing Caliban's War (it's still a good story, I gave it 4 stars!) which I didn't feel had taken the story forward as much as I'd expected.

Abaddon's Gate seems to meander around and about the story rather than dive in, but it's necessary and the pay off is worth it. The authors manage to weave all those loose parts back into a thread which hammers home in the last section of the book - and it's glorious. The characters fit together cohesively and believably, and the authors make you genuinely feel for them. (view spoiler)

I don't think the book has much for new readers who don't know the characters and the story but as a continuation of the saga it's an excellent read.
