My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you enjoy space battles, this is the book for you. The war between the skinnies and the squats has been brewing for decades and finally comes to a head in Babylon’s Ashes, Book Six of The Expanse series.
The Free Navy, made up of militant Belters, has a real shot at taking over the solar system and stopping the expansion to other worlds. Their cause was understandable. It was interesting to see how guerilla tactics play out in space. It was interesting to watch the founding freedom fighter of the Free Navy descend to megalomania. And it was gratifying to see Holden and the crew of the Rocinante outwit him in the exciting finale.
Babylon’s Ashes is good science fiction and a worthy addition to the series. I look forward to seeing how well the book translates to television on The Expanse.
