Corey (a joint pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) continues the bestselling Expanse space opera series (following Cibola Burn) with a standout tale of violence, intrigue, ambition, and hope. A diaspora of humans seeking wealth and adventure is on the move from Earth to the asteroid belt and the outer planets and moons of the solar system. With three governments in the solar system—Earth; the asteroid miners, called Belters; and the Outer Planets Alliance—disagreements are many and rebellion all too possible. Capt. James Holden and his crew stop at Tycho for ship repair and some well-deserved personal leave, but the universe has other ideas. Colony-bound ships are mysteriously disappearing midflight, and the black market for military equipment from Mars is booming. When rebels suddenly drop asteroids on Earth, killing millions, Holden and his people are once again caught up in deadly events with system-wide consequences. Corey cranks up the tension relentlessly in this fast-paced story of heroes and rebels fighting for freedom. With enough thrills and intrigue for three Hollywood blockbusters, the novel stands alone nicely, making it easy for new readers as well as diehard series fans to dive right in. Agent: Danny Baror, Baror International. (June)
