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.

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.
