Babylon's Ashes

Front Cover
Orbit, Oct 24, 2017 - Fiction - 576 pages
The sixth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Babylon's Ashes has the galaxy in full revolution, and it's up to the crew of the Rocinante to make a desperate mission to the gate network and thin hope of victory. Now a Prime Original series.

A revolution brewing for generations has begun in fire. It will end in blood.
The Free Navy - a violent group of Belters in black-market military ships - has crippled the Earth and begun a campaign of piracy and violence among the outer planets. The colony ships heading for the thousand new worlds on the far side of the alien ring gates are easy prey, and no single navy remains strong enough to protect them.
James Holden and his crew know the strengths and weaknesses of this new force better than anyone. Outnumbered and outgunned, the embattled remnants of the old political powers call on the Rocinante for a desperate mission to reach Medina Station at the heart of the gate network.
But the new alliances are as flawed as the old, and the struggle for power has only just begun.
Babylon's Ashes is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the bestselling Nemesis Games.

Maybe you've watched the series, it is still well worth the read. Hard Science Fiction with a great narrative surrounding it. Is this trilogy as good as the first? Maybe not quite, but it still very good. I'd rank this one as 3rd best in the trilogy, but it really is quibbling at this point. Read full review

User Review  - Guide2 - LibraryThing

Not a bad continuation with some interesting battles, but it's hard to imagine that the distances and travel time make sense really for these types of fleet maneuvers. Read full review
