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.
