Abaddon's Gate
Abaddon's Gate | James S.A. Corey
The explosive third novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a Syfy Original series, coming December 2015! For generations, the solar system -- Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt -- was humanity's great frontier. Until now. The alien artifact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has appeared in Uranus's orbit, where it has built a massive gate that leads to a starless dark. Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artifact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.

I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first two books, but still a very good read. The plot continues to evolve in new ways and I can't get enough of the Rocinante crew!

This is such a great series. Hoping for more Amos in the next one 😁 So many great characters though. Lots of action, excellent plot. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The third book in the wonderful Expanse series took several twists & turns I didn‘t expect, and upended the status quo at the end. I enjoy the mix of POV characters, and seeing how they all come together. There‘s lots of places the story could go from here, and I‘m excited to find out.

Another 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 read from the Expanse series. I love these books. Love the show. LOVE Amos. I try to read ahead of what I watch, so I haven't seen any of season 3 yet. Looking forward to getting back to it.

Loved it just as much as the previous books, though I missed some of the characters. I am caught up with the TV show now so the next book will be totally new!

Sure, they were all trapped in orbit around an alien space station that periodically changed the rules of physics and had killed a bunch of them, but now they‘d decided to start shooting each other too.

Started the third book in the Expanse series. Guys, I adore this series so much. It's absolutely incredible. Full of action, thrills, humor, and amazing character development. It's honestly the best scifi series I've ever read! ??

"In a conversational tone, Amos said, 'Any idea what we're expecting here?'

'Nope,' said Holden as he clicked the rifle to autofire.

'All right then,' said Amos cheerfully."

Viji I haven‘t read the books yet but I‘ve been loving the series on tv! 10mo
Branwen I think you would absolutely LOVE the books then! 😀💕📚 I really need to eventually watch the show! 10mo
PaperbackPirate I‘m reading Caliban‘s War right now & I agree with your opinion about the series so far. Leviathan Wakes was on my favorites list for last year. 👾🚀 10mo

Book 3 in The Expanse series is action-packed, political, even religious, and it is epic science fiction. The chapters in this story revolve around four characters (sadly, not my favorite, Avasarala), and the book ends where series 3 of the TV show ends. Without being too "spoilerish", I can say the story line is now open to go in many different places.

So I was m.i.a. for a while, and in that time I ditched The Martian, passed on the rest of Robin Hobb‘s Farseer trilogy, and finally landed on Abaddon‘s Gate. I like this series, it‘s consistently good, but it‘s never crossed over into love. I am highly interested in the tv show—I think I would enjoy the story in that medium a lot more.

The protomolecule has formed some sort of gate in the orbit of Uranus and humanity isn't quite sure what to make of it. Where does the gate lead? Is the product of evil or something less menacing? No one knows and everyone is scared.

I'm having a REALLY hard time focusing on this book. It's just not as captivating as book 1 and 2, and there are so many new characters all the time. It feels like I'm reading what was originally a tv show, not the other way around.

Holy mary mother of aliens! Did you ever finish a book on such a cliffhanger that your body gets itchy with adrenaline to start the next? I finished the second on the train this morning and had to wait through work to get home to start the third. And thank freaking god I had the third waiting for me. And now I'm off to Amazon to buy out the rest of the series, just in case of more big cliffhangers.

melrailey I just recently bought the first book but haven't started it yet so I'll have to keep this in mind! 2y

I rarely read books where I get so worried about the characters that I have to put the book down and take a break, but this book did it. I think having one of the perspectives from an antagonist really changed the novel. I was so worried about whose plans were going to work and whose would fail. It was fantastic.

speljamr I love this series and characters so much. 2y

I'm going to do my best to participate in some June photo challenges, so here goes! This is my anticipated June read. I have been waiting to watch the second season of Syfy's The Expanse as well as waiting to read the third book, Abbaddon's Gate, in the series. I wanted to be able to savor the experiences. I love this series! It's fun, but thoughtful, reading material. @RealLifeReading

I feel like it's been forever since I actually finished a book, but luckily that ends today! This is the third book in The Expanse series, and I love how the authors tell a very human story, despite the series having quite the higher-concept science fiction framework.

I just love this series. It's like eating Chex mix blindfolded. Each bite is something unexpected but always delicious. Maybe that's a lame metaphor...but if you like sci-fi and just fun in general, read these books. Do NOT watch the show though...ugh.

thec0zy Ooh I really love your metaphor for this series!! 3y
sfgretch @thec0zy thanks! I'm reading the fourth one now and not so sure about the flavor. ;) 3y
thec0zy @sfgretch oh yeah, Cibola Burn was definitely the weakest in my opinion. But I thought the fifth and sixth were really good! 3y

No matter what they looked like, or what they chose to call him, when a group of people called out to God together, they were one. Even if there was no God, or one God, or many gods, it didn't matter. Faith, hope, and love, Paul had written, but the greatest of these is love.
