So ends part two of the final trilogy of books. Humans continue to sort themselves out, fighting their relatively puny wars while an existential threat is all around them. How will it be defeated? Does humanity even have a chance? Can it succeed where the makers of the protomolecule failed? Time and Book 9 will tell. I await it impatiently.

The team writing as James S. A. Corey continue to escalate the series, and elevate. Life and death (more death and more ruminations on how to live and die), consciousness, freedom and autocracy, war and reconciliation, the usual themes of humanity are eternal, and explored in ways that are new and at the same time familiar, with a lot of action in the escalating galactic war.

I couldn't put book down. I had to have it in every format so I could keep reading it. It was great, I can't wait until the final book!

I loved this book. The series has come a long way, time-wise as well. And as always, I love Amos!

Endorse isaachar's comments, plus --
Felt this book had a really slow start, but eventually became as engrossing and exciting as most of its prequels. The situations and plot are moving along and changing, and (unfortunately) so is the cast, but it all evens out. Amos stranger and scarier than ever, Naomi growing, and Alex getting tired. Holden still Holden, under it all. And I like the new character and hope she sticks around for deprogramming - can see space for her in future books.
Don't know of anybody else today writing with this much detail and depth, and much impressed that they have kept it up instead of just punching out best sellers every year or two.
Can't wait to get in line for the next one!

A worthy follow up to Persepolis Rising. I enjoyed almost every character in this book, and the one character I did not was mainly due to a swift introduction and change of direction that lacked any previously established character development for it to feel relevant.
What I enjoyed: One of the things that I love about all the expanse books is that they don't follow typical "hero's quest" story patterns. Bad luck and random chance can have just as much an effect on the antagonists as it can the hero. And without spoiling, that very much comes into play here. I also enjoyed that this book has the most backstory input tied to several of the novellas. Many of the main stories in Strange Dogs, The Vital Abyss and The Churn have a direct effect on the story here. Enough to where not having read them would leave out important details that otherwise seem to have sprung from nowhere.
What I did not enjoy as much: Some of the characters were not as enjoyable to read as others. Especially one of the newer characters. Also one of the longstanding character's chapters were a bit too heavy on self reflection and slog, which has a place in the story but drags on here and there.
All in all: You can feel the series both winding down the story of the original Rocinante crew and winding up the arc for the overall series conflict between humanity and the extra-local thing/things that destroyed the protomolecule aliens. If you've read this far you don't need to be told you'll enjoy the ride.
