Description:

**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*. ** **The Expanse ** *Leviathan Wakes* *Caliban's War* *Abaddon's Gate* *Cibola Burn* *Nemesis Games* *Babylon's Ashes* * * **The Expanse Short Fiction ** *The Butcher of Anderson Station* *Gods of Risk* *The Churn* *The Vital Abyss* ** ### Review "This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three." (***Publishers Weekly***) "*Caliban's War* is even better than *Leviathan Wakes*. It's old-fashioned space opera, the kind of SF that I cut my teeth on, a real page-turner set in a vividly imagined solar system... superlatively written." (**George R.R. Martin, *New York Times *bestselling author of *A Game of Thrones***) "A worthy sequel to Leviathan's Wake. Compelling characters and a plot that combines political intrigue with military sf create a memorable story that begs for film adaptation." (***Library Journal***) "Tense and thrilling" (***SciFi Now***) ### Review "This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three." (***Publishers Weekly*** ) Praise for *Leviathan Wakes*: "This is the future the way it was supposed to be." *The Wall Street Journal* "Riveting interplanetary thriller." --- *Publishers Weekly *(Starred Review) "It's been too long since we've had a really kickass space opera. *Leviathan Wakes* is interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written." --- George R.R. Martin "An excellent space operatic debut in the grand tradition of Peter F. Hamilton." --- Charlie Stross "If you like science fiction with great characters and set in real space, you'll enjoy this one." -Jo Walton, author of *Farthing* "A worthy sequel to Leviathan's Wake. Compelling characters and a plot that combines political intrigue with military sf create a memorable story that begs for film adaptation." (***Library Journal*** )
