Tiamat's Wrath Reviews
TIAMAT'S WRAITH is the latest volume of the Expanse. The Expanse struck science fiction like a breath of fresh air and is basically serving as Game of Throne's slightly less successful brother in bringing genre fiction to the mainstream. It's a high concept series about wealth, power, politics, and an alien molecule that defies the laws of physics. Honestly, you can tell how much I like the Expanse in the fact that I'd still be happy to read the series if they ditched all of the alien technology ...more
Gutted. But Tiamat’s Wrath was so freaking good. Sad that this is the penultimate book in the series. I’m going to hate to say goodbye to these characters.
I am wavering between four and five stars on this one. Full review later. I must recover emotionally.

I had to Google Tiamat. Babylonian goddess of creation, but also represents "primordial chaos".
These last two books are going to be so fun! I wonder how many people will die.
“The universe is always stranger than you think. It didn’t matter how broad her imagination was, how cynical, how joyous and open, how well researched or wild minded. The universe was always stranger. Every dream, every imagining, however lavish and improbable, inevitably fell short of the truth.”
March 26th rolls around, my copy of Tiamat’s Wrath, the penultimate novel in the long running Expanse series downloads to my Kobo, I pick it up and read the first sentence. Four words, three of them inn ...more
Executive Summary: It's hard to say why I gave this book 5 stars without massive spoilers, so I'll simply say that I was always looking for reasons to keep listening, and had I been reading it instead I would have finished it much sooner.
Audiobook: Another great job by Jefferson Mays. Early on I didn't find him that impressive, but when he didn't do Cibola Burn I realized how much I liked him for the series. I'm not sure if he's a narrator that I'd pick up another series for, but he's the only o ...more
If you’re a fan of this series the very first sentence will break your heart.
Do things get better after that? Let’s see what one of the characters has to say about the possibility of good things happening after bad things:
”Sometimes it’s just one shit sandwich after another.”
So yeah, there are a couple of moments in this that absolutely suck if you’re invested in these characters. That’s not to say that all hope is lost, and that there aren’t some good fist-pumping “Hell yeah!” moments. Th ...more
4.0 Stars - Video Review: https://youtu.be/oWtGyTmzisc
I just can't get enough of this epic space series and this latest installment did not disappoint!
As always, I loved getting to spend more time with the returning characters. I missed certain perspectives in this book, including few fan-favourites, but, by the end of the book, I understood why those choices were made.
As in previous installments, this book introduced new characters with their own POV chapters. Elvi’s chapters were among my favo ...more
Excellent plot and pacing. The duo that form James S.A Corey nailed it again.
