Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse #1) (Paperback)
Bookseller: Alec & Zazu
Title: Leviathan's Wake (Expanse #1)
[Alec's original review has been lost to the deep recesses of time, so as a fellow lover of this book series, here's Zazu's take:]
This is the book I give to people who tell me "I love science fiction. This is also the book I give to people who furrow their brows and quirk their mouths when when they hear any words even remotely referring to space. Whether you're already a sci-fi convert or not, this is the book (the series!) to entertain and delight, to puzzle and gasp over, to clutch, white-knuckled, until every single page has been turned. You won't be able to help getting attached to the awesome characters as they plunge through a horror-filled, suspenseful noir-style mystery in the best contemporary space opera to hit the scenes since Ender's Game.
Whoever you are, just read this. And we'll see you again when you come back for the sequel.
Leviathan Wakes is James S. A. Corey's first novel in the epic, New York Times bestselling series the Expanse, a modern masterwork of science fiction where humanity has colonized the solar system.
Two hundred years after migrating into space, mankind is in turmoil. When a reluctant ship's captain and washed-up detective find themselves involved in the case of a missing girl, what they discover brings our solar system to the brink of civil war, and exposes the greatest conspiracy in human history.
