If you've read any of the "Expanse" novels by this author you'll recognise the title of this short story which explains the origin of the nickname. If you've not read at least one of them then this story might not be as interesting to you but might still be worth a read and I don't think spoils anything from the books. I certainly found it a nice little treat whilst eagerly awaiting the 3rd book in the series and it does go some way to explain the motivations behind this character.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must . 20 April 2014

If your going to read the Expanse series read this first.
It introduces you to a character in the trilogy and set's you up with a understanding of the universe he has created .

5.0 out of 5 stars Sort but sweet 1 April 2014

A very nice piece of backstory that fills in some missing character motivation. Had to download the kindle app but reckon it was worth it as I also bought Gods of Risk.

I'm a big fan of James S.A. Corey's Expanse series so when I discovered these shorts I was happy.

They are what I've come to expect from Corey, well crafted characters in believable (if frequently painful) situations, which is impressive considering we're talking about a series set in the future, in space.

It's short, but worth it. If you're new to the Expanse, I don't think it will matter if you read this first, though I suspect it won't mean as much to you, therefore it's not a great intro to the Expanse universe.

5.0 out of 5 stars All to short 7 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As ever a well written story that gives context to part of the trilogy. Just wish it were a bit longer......roll on Cibola Burn, I need my Expanse fix. These authors create some of the best and most enjoyable SF I've ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A PLEASANT SURPRISE AWAITS THE READER!!! 22 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When a high ranking Space Marine finds himself kidnapped from a bar, all hell breaks loose in his head. His training comes to the fore, and so too does the bravado, the heroism and the psychology. Amid the flashbacks provided by the authors of this fantastic short, we learn he is a man who lost his soul in the act of following orders. The twist in this tale, unsurprisingly, lies in it's conclusion.

Who says that science proves the nonexistence of God?

BFN Greggorio!

Really enjoying this series, can't wait for it to continue, but I was a little underwhelmed by this little sidetrack novella tbh. Worth reading, but not up to the standard of the main books. The main series is fantastic though, with the breadth of vision that I've listed in my comment title, and predecessed (I think I've coined a word their) my the likes of Bradbury, Asimov, and the amazing Arthur C Clarke.

The connection with George RR Martin (Game of Thrones) is interesting as well - I think the (main) series would translate well to an HBO style production.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the series, but far too short 8 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is a nice bit of filler for the Expanse Series, but it is very short. I've purchased far longer, better stories than this on Amazon for much less. Be warned, a chunk of the "length" of this book is taken up by the inclusion of the the Prologue from the first book 'Leviathan Wakes' at the conclusion of this story.
Having said that, the story was interesting and it was good to learn more about the often mentioned situation that made Fred Johnson who he is in the first two books. If you've been reading The Expanse series, this is a welcome addition, but don't expect it to take up much of your time!
