about

The explosive fourth novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series!

ENTER A NEW FRONTIER.

"An empty apartment, a missing family, that's creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave."

The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.

Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth.

James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail.

And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from neat new worlds This was a wonderful book in this EXCELLENT series(IMO MUCH better then book 3) I hammered through this in no time and could not wait to pick up book 5 and continue the story James S and A Corey do not disapoint

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Exciting second half In the end I really did enjoy this book, but it took me many weeks to make it through. I'm invested in the characters having read the first three books and planning on reading the rest of the Expanse series. The first 280-300 pages (i.e. the first half) of this book are at a much slower pace, then the action ramps up and the book becomes very hard to put down. I could have done with less backstory, but it was well worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expanse This frequently gets called the ugly duckling of the Expanse series of novels but I still enjoyed this quite a bit. I like colonization books, and this is Corey's take on that.
