Babylon's Ashes
Babylon's Ashes | James S A Corey
The sixth novel in James S.A. Corey's "New York Times" bestselling Expanse series -- now a new original series from the Syfy Channel.The final war has started. The protomolecule, fairly quiescent since the opening of the gates, has identified its enemy and is arming itself for battle. Humanity is at most a tool in its post-human arsenal. When people, ships, and even places begin to disappear, Holden and the crew of the Rocinante have to face the fact that the thing they've been hauling through the depths of space only appears to be Detective Miller. The time when the protomolecule's agenda and humanity's overlapped has passed. As the protomolecule takes control of the ancient networks and relays, the final battle begins. Holden and his allies are faced with the decision of whether to blow the gates, trapping humanity in beads of disconnected worlds, or engage in a battle that they can only lose no matter who wins.

Even though this book picks up right where Nemesis Games left off, I found the first 100 pages a bit of a slog. I set the book aside temporarily hoping it was just my reading mood. Turns out it was. Babylon‘s Ashes turned out to be much better than I thought it would be, and given the ending I‘m very curious to see where the series‘ final three books are heading.

I'm glad that after the rough start I had with the previous installment this one had me glued from beginning to end. It was nice to see a few POV vignette chapters with characters that were central to previous installments and not part of the larger overarching narrative that felt like catching up with old friends. The way things ended felt mostly resolute so I'm curious to see what happens next.

Decided to take a slight pause on Alex Verus and instead went back to The Expanse. I‘m liking the way side characters from previous installments are shown again now that the political landscape has changed so much because of the previous book.

My family is getting kind of sick of hearing me talk about these books, but they are so good! Only a couple left in the series, so I think I'll try to finish before starting the new season of the show.

It‘s hard to finish these books just because I never want them to end! This is all punch and politics with a wide range of characters- a cast of POVs that might be unmanageable if the authors hadn‘t been setting it up in the previous 5 books. This stuff is Sci-fi crack! (Quick nerd connection here- crack is also known on the “street”as “rocks”- don‘t ask how I know this- if you‘ve read the book you‘ll be making the connection).

Another solid entry to the series. It was great to see some familiar faces pop in as main characters in this book, I always like when authors do that. We got a bit more character development, seeing sides of characters that we hadn‘t really seen before. And I managed to finish it in good time, only about a week , thanks to having an extra day for my weekend that gave me a few more reading hours.

So I‘m actually nearly finished with this, as I started it immediately after finishing city of mirrors. I‘m really glad I continued reading this series after being on the fence with the first one. The crew of the Roci feels a little bit like family.

I was pretty bored until half way through. There was some action after that, the story was told from an extreme amount of POVs. This genre is really really hit or miss with me. 😞

So, I won this as a #Goodreads #giveaway #kindle edition, however it's book 6 and I haven't read any of the others yet.... I think I might try it and see what happens😶 I mean what's the worst that could happen 🙈🤦‍♀️😦 Right?

VioletBramble Do you have access to the SyFy channel? Sometimes they have seasons 1 and 2 of The Expanse on demand. Those would cover books 1&2 and you'd get a sense of that world and it's history. It's a great show, one of my favorites. 4y
mahasoor There's a lot of background info that you're going to miss, you should sneak a peek at the first few from the library or something if you're able to. I recommend the series! The characters are really engaging. 4y

My binge read is almost over with about a hundred pages left in my current read, this is the last of the published books in the Expanse series. Number seven isn't out until October. I know that I've raved and raved about this series but seriously, epic science fiction. Great world-building, great science foundation, and amazing character development. Rocinante forever.

This book has far more perspectives than any other book in the series so far, but it certainly needs it. There were so many threads that had to be dealt with in this novel, and they were all handled so well. I will say that this is the first book in this series that has made me cry. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

“We all agreed,” Oksana said through a scowl. “We all believed.” “You believed because I asked you to,” Michio said. “This is my fault.” “Now,” Laura said, “Michi? What‘s the magic word?” Against her will, Michio laughed. It was an old joke. A part of what made her family her family. “The magic word is oops ,” she said. And then a moment later, “Oops.”

This series makes me happy.

I've seen a lot of reviews online saying this is a "cleanup book" While I agree that the first half is a bit slower and there isn't as much life threatening, pulse hammering action, I still think there's plenty of character development and plot advancement to make it a very enjoyable read.

I will certainly be pre-ordering the next in the series as soon as it's available.

Thank you, James S.A. Corey.

1/3 through on #audio. The villain is a bit tiresome, but it's still a great book so far. There are so many fun references to catch, some more science-y and some fictional characters, like "Mark Watney out of Mars" from Andy Weir's book, The Martian.
