The eighth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Tiamat's Wrath finds the crew of the Rocinante fighting an underground war against a nearly invulnerable authoritarian empire, with James Holden a prisoner of the enemy. Now a Prime Original series.
HUGO AWARD WINNER FOR BEST SERIES
Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, 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 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 Cordozar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a 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 rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule -- and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose -- seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough. . .

Another Great Story in the Expanse
Is the second to last main-line Expanse Novel by “James S. A. Corey” that tells a story set in the Laconian Empire. It is the eighth novel in the Expanse Series.
The Laconian Empire has taken control of most of the major worlds beyond the ring gates. They hold James Holden prisoner on their home world. However, they are spread thin, and a resistance has arisen. Bobby, Alex, and Naomi have become leaders of this underground. Can this rag-tag band of outlaws face down the military might of the Laconian Dictatorship?
This novel is a refreshing story, which details new settings, and introduces new characters. It’s action packed and sometimes has periods of nail-biting suspense. I’m sad that I only have one novella and one novel left to read…
Best one yet
The authors out did themselves this time.
