It's not a huge thing, but I would recommending reading Drive first and then going by publication order. :)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1818 comments I might join for reread. Especially The Churn.


Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Starting The Butcher of Anderson Station...


Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments That was fun. Great character development of Fred. Interesting to learn a bit about the past.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3910 comments Oops, missed the start date. I'll check today if my library has this one.


Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Just read Gods of Risk. Very meh... too bad.

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1818 comments It was my least favorite of all the Expanse shorts. The Churn is fantastic, and so does Strange Dogs.


message 10: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1818 comments Drive is also fun!

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Cool, I'm reading Drive next!

What Silvana said. :) although I think Vital Abyss was my fav.


message 13: by Laura Tenfingers (new)

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Just read Drive. Thought it was great. I love how we get a feel for the tension between Mars and Earth and how his invention changed everything.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3910 comments Oops, Missed Gods of Risk and Drive. Will circle back to them after Abaddon's Gate


message 15: by Laura Tenfingers (new)

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Just read The Churn. I loved it! But had I not read it in publication order (loosely) it probably would have been a bit meaningless.

I thought Amos was alright but not my favorite until Cibola Burn. After that book he's gone up a few notches so reading a novella about him was a lot of fun. But had I read it early on I probably wouldn't have cared enough yet.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3910 comments I think i missed that one, too. I have it on Kindle and Nemesis games on audio so I'll probably do them together. I did just finish Gods of Risk and found that one pretty enjoyable.
