Caliban's War (The Expanse, #2) is a novel I enjoyed listening to. It is a continuation of the Expanse series of books. You'd think it suffers a little bit from being a sequel in that we think we know the characters. Yet Corey is able to overcome this by adding a level of complexity to each of main character. This book like its predecessor Leviathan Awakes is a quest novel. The crew of the Rocinante
is helping another helpless stranger find his daughter in the wake of the crippling of Ganymede. Like
Leviathan Awakes the hunt for this child leads threw deeper into mystery of the alien life that killed all life on Eros, and sent Eros hurtling into Venus. This quest and the search for understanding the motives of the alien virus nearly brings Earth, Mars and the Belt into direct and open conflict.> I enjoyed the consistent use of science in this story. There is no magic cure for the virus. The political machinations have an air of reality as they relate to the movements and motives of the Great Powers in the World War I era on Earth. Corey's idea that the history of major conflicts are caused by the movements of minor players is interesting. It lost two stars because the storyline seemed like a repeat with minor variations of Leviathan Awakes ( )

Fun story. I'm really digging this series, and I loved Avasarala. Can't wait to jump into the next one. ( )

To me, in terms of 21st century science fiction writers (not withstanding great sf books like Oryx & Crake, Station Eleven, the Martian, Under The Dome, The Revisionists, or Ready Player One whose authors either aren't really sci fi writers per se, or only have one or two books out), there is Peter F. Hamilton, and there is everyone else.

Well, now it's Peter F. Hamilton, James S.A. Corey. and everyone else. Caliban's war effortlessly surpasses its awesome predecessor Leviathan Wakes. This book was utterly riveting, and truly has everything one would want. It features an imaginative, boggling premise grounded within a gritty, realistic, "lived in" milieu. It has terrific writing, what I call transparent writing i.e. it is so good I wasn't thinking about the writing, it wasn't hampering the enjoyment of the story or worst of all, making me mentally edit each sentence. It has incredibly intense action and combat sequences. It has a cast of terrific, unique characters that think and feel and seem like real humans and say witty things.

And that last sentence! Ha! The only reason I didn't immediately start in on the next one, Abaddon's Gate, is that I don't want to burn through these books too quickly. To me, and I don't say this lightly, this is one of the very best science fiction books ever written. And actually, there aren't really that many novels of any genre that are clearly better. I am grateful these books exist. ( )

I enjoyed the first book but only gave it three stars. But then I watched the Syfy series the Expanse and I really, really enjoyed that. This is the hybrid of Star Trek/Firefly with a bit of Battlestar Galactica politics thrown in for good measure but yet this series is not a knock-off of those but instead the space opera you've been waiting for. Having a deeper knowledge of the characters, the universe and the plot I finally got around to the second in the series. Completely hooked now. So much that I ordered the third book to be delivered the next day. And of course had to watch the ComicCon panel with the television cast. ( )

The story continues, the characters start to live and the protomolecyle as well. The science and the knowledge fight with and against the politics. ( )
