Caliban's War

Book 2, Expanse

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The second novel in James S. A. Corey's SF New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series!

We are not alone.

On Ganymede, breadbasket of the outer planets, a Martian marine watches as her platoon is slaughtered by a monstrous supersoldier. On Earth, a high-level politician struggles to prevent interplanetary war from reigniting. And on Venus, an alien protomolecule has overrun the planet, wreaking massive, mysterious changes and threatening to spread out into the solar system.

In the vast wilderness of space, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante have been keeping the peace for the Outer Planets Alliance. When they agree to help a scientist search war-torn Ganymede for a missing child, the future of humanity rests on whether a single ship can prevent an alien invasion that may have already begun . . .

Caliban's War is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the critically acclaimed Leviathan Wakes.

From Publishers Weekly

May 14, 2012 – Corey (a joint pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) returns to the politically charged future solar system setting of Leviathan Wakes for a sprawling space opera thriller. Eighteen months have passed since the now defunct corporation Protogen tried with horrifying results to harness an alien molecule with the power to rearrange living and inanimate matter. The planet Venus is now infected with the molecule, which may be controlled by an extra solar system intelligence. The shaky d tente among Mars, Earth, and the Outer Planets Alliance shatters after aliens attack Earth and Mars forces on Ganymede, making it look like Earth was the aggressor. Capt. James Holden, lately of the OPA, joins up with a botanist on Ganymede whose missing toddler might be the key to this new incident, while U.N. diplomat Chrisjen Avasarala and Martian soldier Bobbie Draper try desperately to avoid interplanetary war. This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three.

Awesome Sequel

This is an excellent continuation of the series. A solid story full of suspense and action with an great ending. Can't wait for the next one.


This is an amazing book. A sequel as great as, if not better than, its predecessor

My complaint about the novel before this one was that it didn’t offer anything new. Well, Corey still doesn’t, but you know, that’s okay. He has discarded some of the more trite characterizations and “Caliban’s War” shows some flashes of great writing.

However, I do wish the characters were a bit more than stand-ins for broad emotional swipes. That said, the novel holds together well and the plot races along. It’s a good read. It’s fun. I suppose that might be enough … unfortunately though, by the end I wished for more. More detail. More depth. More substance.
