    One thought on “Caliban's War”

    1. Things go very wrong on the colony on Ganymede It grabbed an UN Marine in its huge hands and tore him in half like paper Titanium and ceramic armor ripped as easily as the flesh inside, spilling broken bits of technology and wet human viscera indiscriminately onto the ice The remaining five soldiers ran even harder, but the monster chasing them barely slowed as it killed Shoot it shoot it shoot it, Bobbie yelled, and opened fire.The creature was a relatively slow moving human sized target, runni [...]

    2. Reread update 5 17 17 One big thing that stands out to me going back to this after reading all the available books in the series is that my complaint about distinct bad guys not getting introduced until very late in the stories was addressed From this point on we almost always have a face of the threat through most of the action, and that s an improvement that made a great series even better.I also wanted to check this out again after seeing the second season of the TV series The show has gotten [...]

    3. OK, I liked this book butWHERE I HAD READ THIS BEFORE I think that at its core, this second book is was too much similar to the first one.I mean, there is a search for a girl different age but the same basic idea , a mystery about a threat, and the tensions between the policital powers.The only difference is that while the first book, Leviathan Wakes can be read a stand alone book if you wish, maybe since the authors weren t sure to get the chance of expanding it pun intended for a series.Howeve [...]

    4. Leviathan Wakes was one of my great reads this year review carolsoklikes post 3263 It broke into my reading blahs and set off a trend of great reads After finishing, I promptly placed a library request for Caliban s War, out of general interest and just the tiniest bit of series OCD When it arrived, I was in the middle of monthly reads for my book club, then all hell broke open over at , resulting in a loss of reading mojo, quickly followed by reviewing mojo Bridge of Birds brought me back to re [...]

    5. When I read the first book of The Expanse series,Leviathan Wakes I was not that impressed with it It was, however, an instant hit with the majority of the sci fi readership My main problem was that I did not really care for the main characters Consequently, I decided not to continue with the series Then a few months ago Syfy started broadcastingThe Expanse Season 1 their adaptation ofLeviathan Wakes to practically universal acclaim I wondered if I may have somehow misjudged the book so I binge w [...]

    6. Via The Obsessive Bookseller at nikihawkesI was a little hesitant to pick up Caliban s War because the first book Leviathan Wakes was so amazing, how could the second book possibly compare I was even worried I d get bored because I thought I d figured out which characters we d be following and what direction the story was headed Boy was I wrong And happy to be so It was definitely different from the first novel, and didn t lack any of the adventure and excitement As I mentioned, I thought I knew [...]

    7. 4.25 That man s asshole must be tight enough right now to bend space It must be the right time for me and Sci Fi, because I loved it Caliban s War is the second installment in the Expance series and I actually enjoyed it better than the first one No, nothing was wrong with the first one either, I even missed our pulp noir drunken detective with nothing to lose, but fortunately the authors gave us to kick ass female characters who than made up for Miller s loss Well, you ve got a full load of to [...]

    8. The second novel in The Expanse series finds Holden and the crew of the Rocinante trying to stop further attempts to weaponize the protomolecule, with a little help from a Martian marine, a belt born botanist, and a UN power broker.As exciting and action packed as the first book, and nearly as good The ending, while spectacular, doesn t quite pack the emotional punch of its predecessor.

    9. Way back in 2012 I listened to the audiobook of Leviathan Wakes, and loved it It was awesome And then I picked up a nasty case of Series Blah which left me in this emotional hinterland between wanting to continue the series because I really loved the first book, and dreading to read it because either it wouldn t live up to my expectations, or it would be so awesome that I would need and there was no to be had, at the time Now I have read it and I was kinda right on all counts So, uhh Yay me I [...]

    10. It s a pretty safe bet that those who liked the first Expanse book, will enjoyCaliban s War , too I would add that new readers should start the journey withLeviathan Wakes , and not here, as this is not one of those loosely connected, self contained, ongoing francizes like The Dresden Files or Vorkosigan Saga The story picks up a few months after the cataclysmic events described in the debut novel, and will spoil said events for the less cautious reader My review also may contain spoilers of thi [...]

    11. We readers can be a cruel, vicious pack of jackals, sniffing out a novel s flaws with a singular, Darwinian determination honing in ruthlessly on the padded protagonist the fictional filler the cornflour of creativity We hate that juddering lurch where a clanging InfoDump forces your eye to reflexively skip a bunch of paragraphs, or when the Enter Stage Left of a Pr t Clich stock character snaps you out of the fragile, euphoric equilibrium of the Lost Reader s Trance and back to the tedious real [...]

    12. Book 1 5 Book 2 4.5 This one took a while to get going whereas the first one I was engaged from the start Still this book delivers and the ending is fabulous I hear a lot of readers saying all the books out there are YA and there s no good adult characters Abraham Corey delivers in all of his series this one included Avasarala who is a new character to this series is multilayered and beyond that just a lot of fun I d love to share a glass of scotch with her just to see how she would insult me an [...]

    13. 4.5 StarsI often struggle with sequels, because, in my personal experience, they rarely live up to the perfection of first novels Therefore, I m happy to pronounce that Caliban s War was a solid sequel to Leviathan Wakes I would even go so far as to suggest that it might even be a better novel than the first in some ways.This novel provides a lot of character development to the cast of misfits introduced in the first book, along with introducing a several new characters I particularly appreciate [...]

    14. A young girl on a Ganymede space station is kidnapped Shortly thereafter the fragile peace between Mars and Earth is broken when a mutated human attacks and single handily destroys not one but two squads of Space Marines Distrust between the two powers runs high and it is not long before that erupts into a shooting war Both suspect the other of nefariously plotting to turn a secret supply of the protomolecule into a weapon of mass destruction Meanwhile, back on Venus, the protomolecule is busy t [...]

    15. Second instalment of The Expanse Well, you ve got a full load of torpedoes and bullets, three Martian warships trailing you, one angry old lady in tea withdrawal, and a Martian Marine who could probably kill you with your own teeth What do you do Always a bit worried with second volumes but Caliban s War is another amazing adventure, very cinematographic, which explains why the series is being filmed for TV The plot carries on from the events of Leviathan Wakes and once again Holden is one of th [...]

    16. I like you, James S.A Corey, so I m not going to pull my punches this book was not as good as Leviathan Wakes Don t get me wrong, because I enjoyed it and you re damn right I m reading this series through to the end but where Leviathan Wakes was a mix of great to very good, Caliban s War was a mix of very good to just okay.It starts out strong In fact, the initial setup of the new POV characters was often excellent Bobbie s and Pax s establishing shots, their journeys through trauma and finding [...]

    17. 4.5 starsThis story just continues to be one hell of a roller coaster ride We still get Holden s POV but now the author has added three additional POVs a high ranking politician, a Marine, and a botanist father which broaden the story and gives the reader a complete 360 degree view of the accelerating crisis The ending pretty much assures that I will be reading the next book Reread 2018 I find Holden a lot annoying this time around and Avasarala a lot awesome I listened to the audiobook this [...]

    18. Books like this get me excited, they are a fast read, exciting and very interesting, the characters are believable and deep This is Science fiction at its best.

    19. 9 10Spaceballs, was this good or what I had some slight trepidation going into this for a couple of reasons I d just finished a 5 star book which usually means the next book I read gets a lower score as it can t keep up with the previous story I wasn t blown away away by the first book like some reviews led me to believe I would be and their reviews of the follow up weren t as positive My favourite character from the previous story wasn t going to be around and the one who was didn t exactly mak [...]

    20. Holy hell this is great science fiction I gave the first book in the series four stars, but I m going to change it to five, if that s possible This is not only some of the most action packed sci fi I ve ever read, but it s also got some of the best characters I ve ever read in sci fi The remaining crew of the Rocinante is back again, along with some new characters, of course One standout character that s new in the second book is a female politician who is as smart and believable a character as [...]

    21. Reviewed at Adventures in SciFi PublishingCaliban s War, the second book in James S.A Corey s The Expanse series, is at times the best Space Opera I ve read, and in others hard to keep reading It took me ten months to finish Part of that could be that the ending was partially spoiled, another because it is a big book to lug around There is an element to the story telling that contributed to the ten month span, but it s hard to put my finger on.George R.R Martin calls this Space Opera the way it [...]

    23. Fantasy Review BarnMaybe I just have a thing for elderly ladies that take charge and make everyone around them dance to their music Maybe I am a much bigger fan of a basic space opera than I ever will be of detective noir Maybe I just really didn t enjoy a race through a space station of vomit zombies that seemed to go on forever in the first book of this series.Whatever the reason, I found Caliban s War to be a much stronger outing than Leviathan Wakes.The first book of the series set the stage [...]

    24. Plenty fun for me with the multitalented, multiethnic crew of the Rocinante dropping their mercenary work for the Outer Planet s Alliance to take on the obscure forces of evil that threaten the galaxy As several GR reviewers have noted, the plot is largely a recycling of that in the first volume, Leviathan Wakes I don t think that bothered me as much because it s been over a year since I read the first one If you haven t read the first one, the references I make to the state of things as the pre [...]

    25. I ended up really liking this book, so than book 1 in the series, and I am happy to say I will be continuing with this series as time goes on I initially picked this up as a buddy read, and I think it s a story which really does work for discussion because of what happens with the plotline.This story starts up not long after the ending of Book 1 with the protomolecule as a major focus for most of the Universe because of the ever evolving problems it poses We follow Holden, a character who is in [...]
