The Expanse Universe Expands With Persepolis Rising

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 - 09:46

It's the greatest space epic in the last few decades (WARNING: we may be slightly biased) and The Expanse has grown to a staggering 7 novels with Persepolis Rising. James S.A. Corey, AKA Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, AKA the executive producers of our television show The Expanse, just released the 7th of their 9 novel series and it's available to purchase just about everywhere. For two guys who also have their hands full with a television show, the fact that they've managed to release one of these tomes every year since 2011 is not only impressive, it's spoiling fans rotten... stilling waiting on the 3rd Kingkiller novel, Rothfuss! Anyway, let's not get distracted by the incomplete adventures of Kvothe, let's get pumped for Rising, here are the deets...

[WARNING, SPOILERS ABOUND]

AN OLD ENEMY RETURNS

In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace.
 
In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it.
 
New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient patterns of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity -- and of the Rocinante -- unexpectedly and forever...

So, a lot to take in. Perpare yourself for more real-to-science-science-fiction and then buckle up for Season 3 of The Expanse arriving in 2018
