Staff Reviews


"Space opera that is both sublime and visceral – also  the most fun reading you’ll have this summer!  The story combines elements of science fiction, mystery and horror, and the dialogue between the characters draws you in: you want to be there with Capt. Holden and Det. Miller as they struggle to save humanity from a danger millions of years old.  The trilogy is finished (Caliban’s War is next followed by Abaddon’s Gate), so if you want, you can get all three and get lost in this story that is full of suspense."
