The Expanse Read-along: Persepolis Rising – Week 2

Book cover: Persepolis Rising - James S A Corey (who would have guessed - it's a close up of a spaceship in flight)The Laconian heel is firmly on the back of Medina’s neck this week, as Governor Singh flexes his authoritarian muscles and the Belters’ reflexively push back. Holden and Naomi must decide what to do with their future now their options have narrowed dramatically; whilst Drummer gets unexpected advice on securing a future for all of humanity…

The Expanse Read-along: Babylon’s Ashes – Week 3

Unexpected victories drive uneasy alliances – will Marco Inaros be the unlikely catalyst that finally gets Earth, Mars, and various factions of the OPA to work together? Or are Holden and Avasarala building a house of cards that can only tumble down at the worst possible time?

The Expanse Read-along: Babylon’s Ashes – Week 2

The fall out just keeps on falling out as rocks continue to shower the Earth, and shaky alliances begin to crumble. This week is all about moments of tension contrasted with moments of pure humanity as we see what makes people tick, what they value and what they’re prepared to do for what they believe in.

The Expanse Read-along: Babylon’s Ashes – Week 1

In the aftermath of Marco Inaros’s devastating assault on Earth, all alliances look unsurprisingly fragile as every player in the solar system jockeys for position. While billions starve and the few control the future of the many, will anyone realise that – against all odds – humanity may not be the greatest threat to its own survival?

The Expanse Read-along: Nemesis Games – Week 2

The crew of the Rocinante are scattered across the solar system. While Naomi and Amos try to dig their way out of their pasts, Alex and Jim are drawn into dangerous mysteries that threaten whole worlds.

The Expanse Read-along: Nemesis Games – Week 1

Humanity is streaming from the solar system to the stars, and not everyone is as happy about it as you might expect. The Rocinante – fresh home from Ilus / New Terra – needs 6 months of repairs. The enforced pause grants her crew some rare breathing space, but time to reflect is also time for the past to creep up on you – and only Jim Holden, the most public man in the galaxy, has no skeletons rattling his closet doors…

The Expanse Read-along: Cibola Burn – Week 4

As Cibola goes full Burn, the gloves come off, with Murtry determined to claim the planet for RCE through weight of numbers – of corpses. While Havelock has finally learnt to question dubious orders, there are sadly plenty others who are happy to pick up arms against civilians in distress. And if Holden and Miller can’t switch off the planet’s defences, nobody is likely to survive until a rescue ship arrives…

The Expanse Read-along: Cibola Burn – Week 3

Just when it seemed things couldn’t get much worse, we get an apocalyptic explosion, blinding rain and poorly-trained gung ho idiots getting their hands on live ammo. What more can possibly go wrong? …I sort of wish I hadn’t asked. I suspect the answer is EVERYTHING.
