If you've been going through Expanse withdrawal waiting for the third season on SyFy, or just the next book in the series, you're in luck. The next Expanse novel comes out December 5th. As readers of the series know, humanity has now expanded to a thousand worlds thanks to the alien artifact that showed up at the end of the Caliban's War. Seven novels in Holden's "salvaged" Martian gunship and crew are starting to get a bit creaky. Just in time for their old nemesis from Abbadon's Gate to crawl back out from under the rock they fled to. Good times. From release/information:
The seventh novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series--now a major television series.
AN OLD ENEMY RETURNS
In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace.
In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it.
New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient patterns of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity -- and of the Rocinante -- unexpectedly and forever...
