Nough to spoil the storyYou certainly get a feeling of the time that has passed in the characters universe we are now several decades from the events of the early books in the series I am not sure whether this eighth book is the final volume in the story but if it is then they will have left it at a solid and generally fan friendly ending if there IS to be another book or books planned and the very final line of TW does leave this door at least ajar then I feel that what comes next will have to introduce a significant number of new younger characters to continue the storyAll in all very enjoyable and very highly ecommended but you 6 Verses That Can Change Your Life really need toead the full series in order or at the very least ead the seventh book PR before this one In most Sci Fi series that I ve ead things tend to head towards formulaic after a while Same sort of bad guys same mysteries and the same usually violent solutions The Expanse has been a welcome exception I ve ead the whole series to date and I ve seen the TV series which is a bit different but still ecognisable and its been uniformly great Same characters whom I ve come to like a lot the same universe although it expands see what I did there very considerably over the course of the novels and hugely enjoyable character development There s a few goodbyes in 8 that were necessary to the plot but nothing is uite what it seems and there s a good hook that makes me want to ead number 9 NOWGood book You ll enjoy it I understand the one star eview Everybody who loves this series is very invested in all its characters and it is hard to say good bye to any one of them Yes lots of tears shed during the eading of this book tears of joy and sadness But you know what At the end of book nine we e going to have to say good bye to all of them So maybe it is fitting that we get to say good bye one at a time I wouldn t have it any other wayBack to my headline this book is packed with everything I love about The Expanse Fantastic people yeah people not characters living through extraordinary eventsIf you are new to this series I envy the hell out of you you have 8 great books just waiting to be eadIf you know the series and are wondering whether Before the first human beings existed and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay  At the heart of the empire Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue but Teresa has

review Tiamat's Wrath: The Expanse, Book 8

The Expanse Book 8 of 9 In My Humble Opinion uite simply the best Sci Fi series I have every had the pleasure to ead AWESOME even the poorer books stand head and shoulders above the competition Book 8 takes us through the gates and into the world of Duartes authoritarian Laconia system and out beyond into the 1300 worlds where our Heroes are egrouping to push back the juggernaut of Empire We get an insight into Duartes vision and his goals and in doing so we find out that the worst Humanity can inflict on each other pales into insignificance compared to What Lies Between the GatesClever intriguing stirring breath catching horrific saddening all at the same time Tiamats Wrath sets us up for the final chapter which is gonna be one hell of a ide As a big fan of the book series and the TV adaptation I pounced on this the moment it came out I d intended to start eading it after I finished the book I was partway through but I confess that as soon as I unpacked this I put the other one aside and jumped straight in to find out what was happeningWARNING some non specific spoilers ahead for this book and the previous one in the series hopefully nothing that would uin it for any but the most fanatical of spoilerphobes but well you ve been warnedThe previous seventh book in the series Persepolis Rising was both good and frustrating in eual measure because it was the first half of a major two book arc and ended on a very downbeat note with our main characters scattered and the Bad Guys firmly in the ascendancy very much the The Empire Strikes Back of the series If Persepolis Rising is the series TESB then I guess Tiamat s Wrath is its ROTJ the new book very successfully takes us from this low point to a very satisfying to me anyway conclusion but not without some great drama and very emotional losses along the way let s just say that you can feel George RR Martin s stylistic influences here with the two authors of the Expanse being part of his writing circleThere were a couple of moments that I felt smacked just a bit of Deus Ex Machina without which the story would have had a very different conclusion but I didn t think they justified dropping a star for they don t jar badly The eighth novel in James S A Corey's  New York Times best selling Expanse series now a major television series  Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien uins the mysteries and threats grow deeper  In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened.

O buy this one or not the answer is a esounding YES I just finished Tiamat s Wrath and gave it 5 stars I never give anything 5 stars and maybe after I detox I ll want to drop it back to 4 stars but eally it was great Writing characters plot sciencey stuff galactic politics All eally well done Thoughtful but accessible not a combination we often get in SFAlso not the place to start the series or even this three book arcLike Nemesis Games this is a story where the crew of the Roci are all off doing separate things which is how we left it at the end of the previous book Persopolis Rising If you ead that then you ll emember that the black fleet that disappeared through the ing gates early on has come back with newer bigger ships and olled Empire all over the 1300 worlds humans have access to Naomi Alex Amos and Bobbi are all back in the underground game and Holden is prisoner to High Consul Duart man who would be emperor or as Jim puts it his Dancing BearBobbi and Alex are off unning another captured ship the Gathering Storm which they took away from the Laconian Imperial fleet at the end of the last book and Naomi is doing deep thinking and strategizing for the new esistance while hiding out in an elaborate shell game of cargo containers and shipping vessels Amos went off on a high isk mission to get Jim back and has gone dark and Jim s wandering around chatting up the emperor the mad scientist that s been cooking proto molecule since book 1 and Teresa the girl who stands to inherit the empire if her now proto molecule immortal father ever falls Meanwhile Duarte has scientists played by our old friends from Cibola Burn Elvi and Fayez off looking for a solar system empty enough that he can do something to poke the bear on the other side of the ing the one that makes ships disappear if too many go through too often What could go wrongAs Holden says the problem with thousand year Reichs they come and go like firefliesI haven t liked all the Expanse novels eually and the previous one made me worried that the series would end on a whimper ather than a bang but Tiamat s Wrath makes me think that it s going to be something to ememberErnest LilleySFRevu Editor Emeritus. Mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn't guess  And throughout the wide human empire the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave ear guard action against Duarte's authoritarian egime  Memory of the old order falls away and a future under Laconia's eternal ule and with it a battle that humanity can only lose seems and certain Because against the terrors that lie between worlds courage and ambition will not be enoug.
