The second book in the Expanse series, and we finally get both Bobbie and Avasarala. I liked this one even more than the first, and am excited to keep reading. Each book also makes me want to rewatch the show.

Okay, not book related. I‘m listening to the tagged while working my mini farm though! We are having 3 ducks for thanksgiving this year. These are the untouchables! Left to right: Speedy, Not Dinner (who almost was 😱),Lucky (who also almost was), Nelly, and Plucky. 💛

Enjoying my The Expanse journey. I've been listening to the audio and would recommend. Love the characters which just jump alive to me. I'm not sure if that's because I've watched the TV Series and can clearly picture them because of this, but the narrator does a great job channelling the characters.

Scurvygirl This series is on my list to be read. Fantastic show. 9mo
LazyOwl @Scurvygirl it's definitely worth it IMHO. I love the show as well 9mo

Does exactly what a good sequel is supposed to do — expands the universe, deepens the characters, and escalates the stakes. A great book in a great series.

This is the second book in the series and I liked it better than the first. I liked the characters better in this one. Especially the new ones that were introduced Prax, Avalasara and Bobbie which were so well done. Also, the plot felt tighter this go around. 4.5⭐

Bk11 of March &Bk1 of #20in4 This has to be one of the best audiobook series I‘ve ever listened to, not only is the story fantastic, the narrator is fabulous. Every character is distinctive & the words just flow without stutter or hesitation at all. And there‘s some large, unfamiliar words! Bk2 of The Expanse & Jim & Co are caught up in the destruction of Ganymede by rogue elements with the protomolecule. #Booked2021 #HearHere #SeriesRead2021👇👇

Been listening to this phenomenal audiobook in-between books for a few days now. This is seriously one of the best audiobooks I‘ve ever read, the narrator is just amazing. Every character has a distinctive voice, he reads smoothly with no hitches or mispronunciations, and he doesn‘t overact. Bk2 of The Expanse, the story itself is one of the best SciFi series I‘ve read in ages I love the tv show but the books are fantastic.Need to buy it in print!

This continues the breakneck speed and cinematic writing of the first and possibly ups the game with strong new characters (portrayed better than in the tv series) and added nuance to those characters we‘ve already met. The plot events are effortlessly lifted to an epic level, not bogging down in too much didactic Sci-Fi! Just super!

Bk1 of #24B4Monday #readathon & Bk12 of #WinterGames for #TeamNutcracker is done! Bk2 of The Expanse series was fantastic, the writing was fast paced & exciting which really gave me that full immersion you get reading a great book. The protomolecule is amping up it‘s business on Venus & evil people in the UN are engaged in weaponising it behind closed doors, in the process turning humans into monsters. Can‘t wait for Bk3! 16pts #PointsTotal-2,273

Bk12 of the #WinterGames for #TeamNutcracker is the 2nd book in The Expanse series. Eros has smashed onto Venus & now the protomolecule is up to something under the cover of her clouds. Meanwhile on Ganymede, a creature attacks UN soldiers & their Mars counterparts sparking a battle in the skies. Capt James Holden & his crew are now working for the OPA & end up back in the thick of things. So far so good👍 1pt + 697from games #PointsTotal-2,245

Similar review as book 1. Great story, but I think the show does it better. I did appreciate the additional POVs. But, in the show the actors bring so much life to the characters, who fall a little flat in the book.

Expanse series, book 2. Every bit as good as book one, with some great new characters. Just me or does Chrisjen Avasarala remind you of Lady Olenna from Game of Thrones. Loved her character. And the very end! Can't wait to start the next book.

Book 2 in the Expanse series, just as good as the first. Well worth reading if you enjoyed the TV series. Chrisjen Avasarala is a fantastic character 😊 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

It would not be incorrect to say I inhaled this book. Started last night & finished today, I struggled to put it down to sleep. The plot started quickly & kept going from there, conflicts resolving only for new ones to arise. The characters were fantastic, and there were lots of heartwarming moments. Onto the next one!

The second book in The Expanse series is great combination of action, sci-fi, political intrigue, and family drama. The first book introduced the characters. This book gives them the freedom to be who they are. It‘s wonderful.

Decided to make book two of The Expanse series my next read. Leviathan Wakes was okay, but it wasn't until the final third that I really started to enjoy it. Caliban's War will have to do a better job of wowing me for me to commit to the whole series, but so far I'm encouraged by the larger scope and variety of perspective chapters. I dig a good space opera story, so here's hoping this becomes a series I will want to stick with for the long haul.

I just started tracking how much I buy and how many off my tbr I read this year hoping that it might curb my buying and get me to go through more than I bring in.

The Expanse is such a fun series. I love the characters, especially Amos and Chrisjen. I just adore that little old granny who cusses like a sailor. Hoping to finish this one soon so I can get ahead of the show.
