"A standout tale of violence, intrigue, ambition, and hope. ... Corey cranks up the tension relentlessly in this fast-paced story of heroes and rebels fighting for freedom. With enough thrills and intrigue for three Hollywood blockbusters, the novel stands alone nicely, making it easy for new readers as well as diehard series fans to dive right in."―Publishers Weekly on Nemesis Games
"The science fictional equivalent of A Song of Ice and Fire...only with fewer beheadings and way more spaceships."―NPR Books on Cibola Burn
"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
"The Expanse series is the best space opera series running at full tilt right now, and Cibola Burn continues that streak of excellence."―io9
"Corey's splendid fourth Expanse novel blends adventure with uncommon decency."―Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Cibola Burn
"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
"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
"An excellent space operatic debut in the grand tradition of Peter F. Hamilton."―Charles Stross on Leviathan Wakes
"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 authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck should reawaken an interest in old-fashioned storytelling and cinematic pacing. Highly recommended."―Library Journal on Abaddon's Gate
"Literary space opera at its absolute best."―io9 on Abaddon's Gate

I'm pleased to be wrong.
This leap years into the future, the crew slowing down with age, convincing and human with their aches and wrinkles and decades of growing comfortably old together... I was caught off guard. I am so happy that they have not allowed the characters or world to stagnate.
I look forward to the next novels as they follow the new Laconian faction and how their bid for power affects the universe of The Expanse.
Almost forgot: still love Avasarala.
Loved the continued arc of the Roci's crew, and the growth it shows. This is a family, and familes evolve over time.
This story was more focused in scope, with the action taking place in only a few locations. Not quite the expansive locales from prior books, but I enjoyed the focus, it kept the story pacing up.
This book, in the series, was good. It moves the whole story forward a couple decades, and makes a good effort to keep the oldness of concepts, equipment, and characters apparent. Not the most action packed of the novels, but not the least, either. It was catching up with old friends.
