Of course if you want slow, methodical serious sci-fi, or pulpy Star Wars blaster battles you're going to be disappointed - but if the idea of something somewhere in-between sounds good, this is exactly what you're looking for.
If you're already familiar with the series, and you're wondering if this book lives up to what's gone before: it does. The stakes may not be as high as in previous volumes, but it's an arguably more human crisis and manages to move the overall story forwards in a way that's measured and believable, but left me exciting to read the next book. Great stuff.
The fourth instalment continues what is for me one of the great things about this series - the formula of keeping core strengths that work, and adding completely different situations - all the books have felt different, but familiar.
In particular, the core is Holden, with Naomi and the crew on the Rocinante. Holden is the main point of view character, but spends little time on the ship. The new point of view characters are also compelling, and great to see the return of a character from the first series.
Putting the characters in a different situation with different challenges works yet again, and the gradual opening up of the Expanse universe is great, the authors have done a great job building this up realistically.
In summary, an excellent, enjoyable read.
Each book can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend you start from book one.
I've just finished Cibola Burn: Book Four of the Expanse series, so I've come onto Amazon to buy the next episode. What! I can’t believe this is the last one. Or… is there more in the pipeline?
I hope there is. I've enjoyed all four books immensely, please let there be more.
So all in all, its an ok book. Not an excellent one like the previous ones.
