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.

I did not love this as much as the previous book and I felt that there were a few too many character point of views. I do look forward to continue the series.

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.

OMG what a series. I love it. This book is brilliant, full of twists and turns, intrigue, and characters with heart. It has wonderful representation as well, without it feeling forced.

I thoroughly recommend this series.

1. Ebook and audio. I have to, my disability refuses to let me hold physical books.
2. My desk or my bed.
3. Tea! Green tea with a splash of pomegranate juice.
4. Both. I have a few to pick from but also like to focus on one at a time.
5. Night, specifically #ItsSoLateItsEarly

Mehso-so

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. 2y
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. 2y

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.

Owlizabeth @melrailey Yes! If you love the show, definitely read the books. But, as a warning, season one was only half of the first book. 3y
Lauredhel And I would add... In my opinion the first book is the weakest. You need to read it, but it really ramps up in the second. 3y

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.

3.5 ⭐️ First, let me say that I think this is my favorite series still being published. I don't buy a lot of full-price new books, but this one I did.

This felt like the cleanup book. Last book, a huge mess was made and this is the book where they deal with the fallout. Like cleaning, it wasn't really THAT much fun. Was more in the mood for scary aliens, but this is 99% politics. Good, but not the medicine I needed at the moment. Still love it.

carys14 I think there is a correlation between how good the book is and how much Avasarala appears. #moreavasaralaplease 3y
Chessa @carys14 100% agree!!! Love her. 3y
