Also got me with Bobbie, but the crew reflecting on it later acknowledging how perfect a death it ... going out as a Valkyrie attacking a battleship on her own and winning - gave me peace with it.

Tiamat’s Wrath, the eighth book in The Expanse series picks up decades after the events in Persepolis Rising.Laconia is in control. Beginning in 2011 with Leviathan Wakes, these books have taken a realistic approach to fictional space travel, using the technology of today to extrapolate and imagine what space exploration may look like in the future. Again, those parts of the novel aren’t the most exciting, but how could it be any other way? The Essential DanMachi Moments, The Expanse Book 8 Review: Tiamat’s Wrath. It hurt like a bitch but it wasn't as bad as you'd think. I'm also not done yet (about 300 pages or so) and I'm dying to talk about it, but trying to manage spoilers when people are at different spots is basically impossible.

His relative absence from this book and subsequent badass re-entry foreshadows a juiced up Amos for next and final book. While the series has followed some characters consistently and allowed them to evolve in interesting ways, it is still refreshing to read a new perspective. The one thing I don't really like is that I don't know if I can trust Amos now. But even the Storm spends a frustrating but understandable amount of time in hiding. The additional perspective of Teresa Duarte, the daughter of the High Consul now in her teenage years, gives us a glimpse behind the curtain at an empire about to reach its moment of hubris.

But this protomolecule also exposed new threats. I would have accepted anything, however improbable, that got her out of the situation alive but they just let it be. by Tim Lepczyk.

I'm still in the early stages (maybe 100 pages). When I read Strange Dogs it creeped me the fuck out. Damn there's some crazy shit in there.... I’m about 2/3 through.

Captain James Holden, the hero readers have followed since the beginning, was captured by this new empire and is now held as a political prisoner in their capital, only treated well due to his personal exposure to the protomolecule and other alien technologies.

The kids creep me out.

The clear progression of scale in the universe of The Expanse reaches its peak with the reign of the Laconian Empire in Tiamat’s Wrath. His former crew have split up and joined the small resistance against Laconian rule. Naomi Nagata, Alex Kamal, and Amos Burton began the series with James Holden and worked together to expose the original conspiracy. It will be really interesting to see how Amos's new state-of …

Captain James Holden has been captured and imprisoned on Laconia, Naomi Nagata is hiding in transport containers making an attempt to coordinate a resistance, former Martian Marine Bobbie Draper and pilot Alex Kamal are plotting strikes in opposition to Laconian forces, and mechanic Amos Burton is lacking in motion. Elvi’s chapters focus on her struggle to balance her need for discovery and scientific progress, with her knowledge that science can very easily become unethical.

If Persepolis Rising is the series' TESB, then I guess Tiamat's Wrath is its ROTJ - the new book very successfully takes us from this low point to a very satisfying (to me, anyway) conclusion, but not without some great drama and very emotional losses along the way - let's just say that you can feel George R.R. ... And unless I read it wrong Amos has been missing for a … Even the characters themselves reflect with nostalgia on the simpler days on the Rocinante, and we as readers are supposed to long for those earlier adventures so that we cry out for a reunion that takes all 500-plus pages to achieve. He's at university and he's about to get married. Today, we know more than we ever have about the worlds beyond our own, but that has does nothing to stop people’s imaginations from filling in the blanks. Powered by Vanilla Forums. Over the last seven books, Corey has crafted a continuous tale about humanity’s first contact with alien technology, and how that affected the fragile structures of the human race. It looks like you're new here. With the release of Tiamat’s Wrath earlier this year, only one novel remains in this excellent series.

It sets it up pretty neatly for him to sacrifice himself for some great goal. Finished. How do you take out an enemy that is not limited by locality, gravity, or the speed of light?

Just got the audiobook. I also finished the audiobook last week, it was ok for me but some of the Laconia battle stuff seemed awfully convenient. Tiamat’s Wrath and the previous novel, Persepolis Rising, take place after a many year time jump from book 6, Babylon’s Ashes.

But the universe doesn’t always give us what we want.

Through this exposure, she became one of humanity’s leading experts on everything extraterrestrial. I'm not sure if I'll be able to resist plowing through it unless a book club materializes.

They not only have to face military opposition, but a fascist propaganda machine hard at work rewriting recent history. Currently listening to the audio book, chapter 14 so far.

Bumping this thread back up to see if anyone else has read it since and also because I realized I never posted here after finishing the book. With an ending that changes everything about the slow zone, the nature of travel between systems, and the ability for anyone to ever achieve what even the Trade Union was able to do, much less the Laconian Empire, the stage is set for the most massive battle yet.

Unlike many authors whose series last this long or become this popular, Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (the writing duo behind James S. A. Corey) have been working from a fairly complete roadmap. It is said that, before writing the first word, you should know the last.

These are aging action heroes who know they cannot keep acting like the young adventurers they used to be.

This is in Alex's mind all throughout the book and he has this weird nostalgia-like feeling and how Kit is about to fly out of the nest, and this is why he behaves kinda like a dad to that young pilot I forgot the name of. I couldn't contain myself and read the first three chapters last night.

The stakes are at their highest, which is appropriate for Book 8 of 9, and the scenes with Amos and Holden going through their separate, very different experiences on Laconia, show how much of the inaction in Tiamat’s Wrath is due to most of our favorite characters being trapped in circumstances beyond their control. I'm currently splitting my free time between the book and re-painting and decorating a bathroom. Amos is missing after a covert op fails.

She’s sequestered herself away and wants nothing more than to stop the war with as many words as it takes and as little violence as possible.

Thanks for the heads up. Den of Geek I got so upset and worried about my beloved characters that I read the first half of the book pretty slowly! She has received the best education available, and has a carefully chosen group of classmates whom her father believes can eventually be useful to her rule.

With one ship, constructed and powered by alien technology not fully understood, Laconia defeated the combined forces of Earth, Mars, and the other political structures which had come to power over the years. The as-of-yet untitled Book 9 marks the grand finale of The Expanse. ( Log Out / 

It’s a failed mission that gives them the key to victory at a horrible price.

Laconia’s only concern is military application, and we follow Elvi as she tries to push back against this military-first sensibility. While it will be a sad day when this paragon of science-fiction finally ends, it is certain that the end will be nothing short of satisfying.

The first steps a human took on a celestial body other than the Earth. An additional point of view comes from Elvi Okoye, the exozoologist from Cibola Burn, now conscripted into service as a major in the Laconian military, and her reluctant cooperation with the officers who try to defeat a completely inscrutable enemy gives us a better idea of what the missing time effect we saw in Persepolis Rising is all about and plants the seeds for knowledge that might prove pivotal in the ninth and final book of The Expanse.
Yea those two points are the big headlines for me as well.

One perished off-page before the start of the book, and another disappeared on an espionage mission to Laconia’s capital city. A network of portals leading to other solar systems, the discovery of abandoned alien space stations, the assembly of a massive pirate fleet, and the rise of a new rival empire.

Kit must be 50+ years old. There was another thing that was pretty weird to me and it's Kit, Alex's son.

It’s easy to side with Bobbie in their strategic disagreement, especially since she and Alex are the only members of the team still together, and their missions, both successful and not, provide a majority of the action sequences in the book.

Is this weird to anyone else. The reveal of this protomolecule exacerbated tensions between the governments on Earth, Mars, and the fragmented Belters, or those humans who lived in space stations or asteroids.

How does that sound?

Loved what they did with Naomi, especially in her early chapters as a nomad monk resistance-mastermind.

but its another good entry to the series. Ok, cool. In her debut novel, Elvi encountered alien machinery from the race that created the protomolecule, and a metaphysical, reality-transcending bullet left over from the enemy that killed them. Tiamat’s Wrath is the latest novel in James S. A. Corey’s ground-breaking science fiction series, The Expanse.

In the last few books there was almost always a POV character I just didn't give a crap about (eg. After Laconia’s conquest, she has become one of their top scientific minds and leads their expeditions to other solar systems, constantly searching for more.

Really good so far. I really hope the social media buzz that helped to save the show pays-off and it finds a successful home at Amazon for the 4-5 additional seasons it would take to complete the narrative. The protomolecule gives Laconia an edge over everyone else in terms of technology.
