Product description

Review

It's been too long since we've had a really kickass space opera. LEVIATHAN WAKES is interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written, the kind of SF that made me fall in love with the genre way back when, seasoned with a dollop of horror and a dash of noir. Jimmy Corey writes with the energy of a brash newcomer and the polish of a seasoned pro. So where's the second book? (George R. R. Martin)

"Corey... has created a refreshingly blue-collar tale, with well-drawn characters and a compelling narrative sweep. Roll on Book Two." FINANCIAL TIMES

Book Description

The start of the Expanse series - a fast-paced and thoroughly gripping new space adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 October 2018
I started watching the t.v. adaptation of “The Expanse” and a little way in, loving it, decided to read the books first. Always prefer it that way round and “Leviathan Wakes” is simply brilliant, a rollercoaster ride through space – a proper epic that holds all your attention first page to last.

A classic tale at the heart of it, a small, motley and eclectic crew who may hold the fate of the universe in their hands, face off against varying powers, battles galore, with plenty of richly layered characters all set against the backdrop of a beautifully imagined future world.

A heady mix of space opera, drama, horror and science fiction, Leviathan Wakes drowns your senses, messes with your heart rate, keeps you up at night and has a disturbingly relentless feel to the more horrifying moments. All this whilst attaching you to the characters in an emotional way that makes you crazy when the bad things inevitably happen.

I adored it – I don’t think I’ve read a book this long in such a short time ever  – that cliche about not being able to put it down was almost literally true in this case.

Fantastic writing, clever, intelligent plotting and a visceral, visual feel to it that digs deep, Leviathan Wakes is one of my favourite reads ever. No messing.

Bring on Caliban’s War is what I say.

Highly recommended.
