Book Synopsis



The first three novels in James S. A. Corey's New York Times bestselling epic science fiction saga the Expanse -- now a major television series.

"Interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written." -- George R.R. Martin

Humanity has colonized the solar system, but two hundred years after migrating into space, mankind is in turmoil.

When a reluctant ship's captain and washed-up detective find themselves involved in the case of a missing girl, what they discover brings our solar system to the brink of civil war, and exposes the greatest conspiracy in human history.



Review Quotes




"[T]he authors are superb with the exciting bits: Shipboard coups and battles are a thrill to follow."--Washington Post on Abaddon's Gate

"A politically complex and pulse-pounding page-turner.... Corey perfectly balances character development with action... series fans will find this installment the best yet."--Publishers Weekly on Abaddon's Gate

"An excellent space operatic debut in the grand tradition of Peter F. Hamilton."--Charles Stross on Leviathan Wakes

"Combining an exploration of real human frailties with big sf ideas and exciting thriller action, Corey cements the series as must-read space opera."--Library Journal (starred review) on Cibola Burn

"Corey's splendid fourth Expanse novel blends adventure with uncommon decency."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Cibola Burn

"High adventure equaling the best space opera has to offer, cutting-edge technology, and a group of unforgettable characters bring the third installment of Corey's epic space drama (after Caliban's War and Leviathan Wakes) to an action-filled close while leaving room for more stories to unfold. Perhaps one of the best tales the genre has yet to produce, this superb collaboration between fantasy author Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck should reawaken an interest in old-fashioned storytelling and cinematic pacing. Highly recommended."--Library Journal on Abaddon's Gate

"It's been too long since we've had a really kickass space opera. LEVIATHAN WAKES is interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written, the kind of SF that made me fall in love with the genre way back when, seasoned with a dollop of horror and a dash of noir. Jimmy Corey writes with the energy of a brash newcomer and the polish of a seasoned pro. So where's the second book?"--George R.R. Martin on Leviathan Wakes

"Literary space opera at its absolute best."--io9.com on Abaddon's Gate

"Riveting interplanetary thriller."--Publishers Weekly on Leviathan Wakes

"The science fictional equivalent of A Song of Ice and Fire...only with fewer beheadings and way more spaceships."--NPR Books on Cibola Burn

"The Expanse series is the best space opera series running at full tilt right now, and Cibola Burn continues that streak of excellence."--io9 on Cibola Burn

It was a Christmas present for my son. I bought the boxed set which was a great buy because I got a three book set for less than if I bought them individually. I also bought him 3 more books individually that also belonged to the set. He was very excited and impressed with the books that I bought him from Target. I found his wish list for these books on another website and they were less expensive when I purchased them from Target.
