Review: Tiamat’s Wrath (The Expanse)

Tiamat's Wrath (The Expanse, #8)Tiamat’s Wrath by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s taken me a few days to digest this book. It should be no surprise to fans by now that each book has Big Ramifications. But the writing is also so embracing that it feels like home.

I’m not sure if I loved this book or not. On the one hand, I was thrilled to get it and continue the story. On the other—as has been true throughout—the storytellers and story type shifts with the needs to the narrative. As such, I didn’t “hear from” some of the characters I missed. I did feel Teresa, one of the newer characters, had a distinctive, age-appropriate voice—I just didn’t like her much. But I think that’s intentional. But it does make it hard to get attached when you dislike one of the leads. I was glad to see Elvi back, though I do not envy her her plot.

Mixed bag, and it will definitely make you feel all kinds of things.
