Nemesis Games | James S.A. Corey
The fifth novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a Syfy Original series, coming December 2015! A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle. Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price. And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.

This series keeps getting better and better. The Expanse book 5. Wow. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Aloisi_tribe I just got the first book in the series from the library after my husband and I binged all three seasons of the TV show. I was excited to here that Amazon picked it up for a fourth season due out in December. 11h
Twainy I just picked up Auberon yesterday. I love this book series! I had no idea how they‘d make a tv series but I love that too! 😊 10h

I had a fun essay to write for my Library Management class today! Pick a literary character that you consider to be a leader and discuss what qualities make them one. I chose James Holden from the Expanse series because he always rises to the occasion and handles tough decisions, even if he necessarily doesn't want to be the one in charge.

Which character would you guys choose and why? 💕📚

DaveGreen7777 She may not exactly be considered a leader, but I immediately thought of Nynaeve from the Wheel of Time series! While her role as a Wisdom in her village is more of a consultant than that of an official leader, it always stood out to me how she takes it upon herself to go after the missing villagers and try to protect them, even putting herself at risk to save them. She may have not been elected a leader, but Nynaeve certainly acts like one! 2mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 You know what, friend? YOU ARE SO RIGHT! I didn't even think of Nynaeve for this, but now that you bring it up she really is such a perfect choice! I love how she always seeks to protect her 'villagers' even if it means becoming an Aes Sedai to do it! 😍💕 2mo

So I didn't quite make 24 hours, but I feel like my #24B4Monday #Readathon was a success anyway. I finished 2 graphics, 1 audio, and 3 novels. I also got halfway through Ernest Cline's Armada, which isn't pictured.

This series makes me so happy. The crew of the Rocinante feel like family to me, in this book maybe more than any of the others. I do think it's my favorite of the bunch so far. Just so good.

My weekend #readathon totals were lower than I hoped for, just 8 hours 20 minutes for #24in48 and 12 hours 55 minutes for #24B4Monday. However, I did finish a couple of books, including this one, the best one yet of the 5 I‘ve read from the incredible Expanse series!

Many thanks to the readathon organizers! @24in48 @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65

Oh man, 5 books in and they still have me hooked!! I do sort of hate them for always going for the cliffhanger endings though - I learnt from my mistakes though and already have the next book here! Minerva is not impressed though. She doesn't want me to get up! #catsoflitsy

This book flew by. It took me longer than usual to finish it simply because I didn‘t have as much time to spend reading as I usually do, but the story seemed to fly by. Despite being over 500 pages, it felt short. If I had to describe it, I‘d say it‘s a mid-series reset. All of the rules have been changed, the pieces rearranged.

Returning to the Roci and her crew while I wait for other holds to come through. I think it‘s time they get a new quote for the cover, surely other famous authors enjoy this series and can provide a little blurb?

Most disappointing #bookmail ever. WTF, man, WTF. What happened to book 5? Why do publishers do this? It's just so aesthetically unpleasant. I could get over the title to author to title switch but the size change is just awful. And they are all about the same number of pages so that's not the issue.

As soon as I got to the second chapter and saw that all the perspectives would be from the members of the crew, I knew things were about to go very, very wrong for everyone. I definitely nailed it with that guess. I like that these books explore how humanity changes but also fails to change in the face of incredible discoveries. This book really got to the heart of that theme. It was stressful all the way through, but in the best possible way.

Spent awhile going back and forth whether I should start the most recent Expanse novel or not. My need to get to the end of any of those novels makes starting one quite a commitment. But, of course, I gave in. #messyshelfie

ReadingEnvy I wasn't going to read past book one but the tv show made me rethink. 3y
thec0zy I definitely think the second book is worth reading. The scope widens, and you begin to see the political ramifications of the actions of Holden's crew. But if that doesn't appeal to you, or if you read it and don't like the second, it's definitely not worth continuing. 3y
thec0zy @ReadingEnvy sorry, blanked on tagging you 3y
ReadingEnvy That's a helpful perspective so thank you! 3y
Chessa @ReadingEnvy The second one is actually my favorite of the series so far! Such excellent characters get introduced. 3y
