My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In Tiamat’s Wrath, book eight of The Expanse series, the crew of the Rocinante are scattered across the galaxy, each on their own secret mission. Holden’s mission is to promote discord and dissension within the Laconian Empire. Amos wants to rescue the Cap and blow stuff up. Bobbie and Alex are playing havoc in their stolen Laconian warship, trying to destroy morale as well as military targets. And Naomi is working to have the rebellion infiltrate key positions within the empire itself. But Elvi is on a different type of mission–she is scouring the galaxy for clues as to what killed the protomolecule race before they kill the human race as well.
Tiamat’s Wrath has two main plotlines–the underground rebellion against a dictatorship and the incursion of murderous trans-dimensional monsters. The story is written in alternating viewpoints with no lack of action and suspense. I recommend Tiamat’s Wrath to science fiction fans as well as to fans of the television series, The Expanse, and I look forward to seeing it come alive on the show.
