Publisher Description

The biggest science fiction series of the decade comes to an incredible conclusion in the ninth and final novel in James S.A. Corey’s Hugo-award winning space opera that inspired the Prime Original series. 

“An all-time genre classic.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Hugo Award Winner for Best Series

The Laconian Empire has fallen, setting the thirteen hundred solar systems free from the rule of Winston Duarte. But the ancient enemy that killed the gate builders is awake, and the war against our universe has begun again.
In the dead system of Adro, Elvi Okoye leads a desperate scientific mission to understand what the gate builders were and what destroyed them, even if it means compromising herself and the half-alien children who bear the weight of her investigation. Through the wide-flung systems of humanity, Colonel Aliana Tanaka hunts for Duarte’s missing daughter. . . and the shattered emperor himself. And on the Rocinante, James Holden and his crew struggle to build a future for humanity out of the shards and ruins of all that has come before.
As nearly unimaginable forces prepare to annihilate all human life, Holden and a group of unlikely allies discover a last, desperate chance to unite all of humanity, with the promise of a vast galactic civilization free from wars, factions, lies, and secrets if they win.
But the price of victory may be worse than the cost of defeat.

An Emotional Ride

This is the last book of The Expanse series. While all things must eventually end, I am saddened to say goodbye to the crew of the Rocinante. There were sacrifices great and small throughout this entire series, but the final sacrifice was an emotional whirlwind of great magnitude. I do not want to reveal the story to those who want to experience the book for themselves, so I can only say that I recommend this book to the fans of this series. Saying it is a “must read”, is a tremendous understatement. It would be very nice if each of the surviving characters stories could be told to the end of their lives, and influences on the worlds in which they ultimately meet their stories ends. It would make an interesting novel or a series of short stories. The end of this epic story leaves me in an emotional turmoil. It feels like losing people we know and love. It feels like we are saying goodbye to our family and not knowing what to do next; if we can make ourselves do anything at all. If you are a fan of the series, this book is unquestionably a must read. If you are not yet a fan, pick up a copy of “Leviathan Wakes” to start your journey with the crew of the Rocinante. You will lose yourself in the story of mankind’s expansion into the solar system, and beyond into the Universe.

Not very good

The series has lessened in quality with each release. This is the last book, so you’ll buy it anyway, but the story is near incomprehensible and the characters one dimensional. Lots of side stories that add nothing to the plot. The authors had so little to say that they simply repeated parts of the story exactly, just from another perspective, without adding a thing to the story. It’s dull, overly long, and with an ending that makes little sense. What a dud.

Great ending to a great series

I really enjoyed this book. I think it tied everything together and ended the way it was supposed to. I am sad this is the end, but it was a great ride.
