really liked it

The second novel in The Expanse series finds Holden and the crew of the Rocinante trying to stop further attempts to weaponize the protomolecule, with a little help from a Martian marine, a belt-born botanist, and a UN power broker.
As exciting and action packed as the first book, and nearly as good. The ending, while spectacular, doesn't quite pack the emotional punch of its predecessor.

HBalikov Hard for most authors to maintain as great momentum in the second book of a series.

True. I just finished the third book and the series is still going strong, so I have a lot of faith in the authors' consistency.

Good to know. Thanks


William Thank you for the review!

This was, again, a five-star read for me. Solid hard sci-fi space opera is so hard to find.
