This was better than the previous book, some bits were very good, I thought the final battle sequence was very well done, viewing the different aspects from multiple viewpoints but as with some of the more recent previous books, I didn’t get on with some of the narrators. I think my issue with the series as a whole, I’m finding it harder to get why the bad guy is being the bad guy. In this one we’ve got the bad guys going down the path of some extremely rigid thinking and I can’t get why a whole planet of people wouldn’t have empathy. It was noticeable again though, that the series is making some very obvious references to Earth’s current political problems.

Anyway, trying not to give away too many spoilers, this one is set thirty years after the previous book. The crew of the Rocinante are making plans but an unusual looking ship coming out of one of the gates, puts a spanner in the works.
