My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve read all of The Expanse series, so I didn’t even read a synopsis before I checked this one out of the library—it was a given that I needed to read it. I knew it was very early in the series so I figured I would be able to follow regardless.
So when I say I was caught off-guard by the story, you understand how amazing that is. I’ve read thousands of pages in this universe and yet was still wonderfully, pleasantly surprised by this story!
Absolutely delicious writing and some of the backstory I had been craving. Just don’t pick it up when you have something else to do; you will neglect your work, your sleep, your spouse to keep reading.
