Orbit, Jun 4, 2013 - Fiction - 576 pages
The third book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Abaddon's Gate opens the door to the ruins of an alien gate network, and the crew of the Rocinante may hold the key to unlocking its secrets.

HUGO AWARD WINNER FOR BEST SERIES

For generations, the solar system -- Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt -- was humanity's great frontier. Until now. The alien artifact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has appeared in Uranus's orbit, where it has built a massive gate that leads to a starless dark.

Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artifact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.

Abaddon's Gate is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the critically acclaimed Caliban's War.

Good end to a fantastic trilogy. Maybe not quite as strong as the second book, but a quite satisfying conclusion. Well judging by the ending, maybe not the end of the saga, but if it was this works just fine. Read all of this series. Read full review

Call it 3.5 stars. Felt like this one really dragged in the middle. Also, didn't love some of the POV characters in this outing. Read full review
