Strange Side Story from an Alien World
“Strange Dogs” is a odd novella set between the novels “Babylon's Ashes” and “Persepolis Rising.” It is told from the perspective of a little girl who has grown up on the Planet Laconia. Her parents were part of a survey crew who were present when Admiral Duarte and his soldiers came through the ring gate and took the system.
She considers Laconia her home, and doesn’t fear its alien wildlife. So when she encounters some strange looking dog-like forms, she accepts the miraculous assistance they can provide her...
This is a chilling little side story in the narrative of The Expanse. It doesn’t appear to be critical to the main thread of the novels, but fills in some details of the overall universe.
“Pet Sematery”... in... Spaaace!
Was this great? I don’t know, but I do appreciate the way the authors of “The Expanse” are keeping our appetites whetted with these little vignettes.
Good but too short
Great book but I wish there was more to it and I hated how it left off I thought there was more to the story but nope. Just 100 pages of some other stupid book they put in there as a sample. So it only gets three stars. I love the main series though.
