Book Description

5 Jun 2014 Expanse (Book 4)

The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonise has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Illus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.

Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world.

James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the heart of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail.

And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilisation which once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed them.

Cibola Burn is the exhilarating fourth novel in the New York Times bestselling Expanse series, following the Hugo-nominated Leviathan Wakes, Caliban's War and Abaddon's Gate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Golden Age hung-ho 5 Aug 2014
By J. Wise
Format:Hardcover
DYNAMIC duo Corey’s sci-fi supernova of a series continues with this, the fourth Expanse novel. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t read the previous three as the characters are delivered afresh with energy.

Interplanetary frontiersmen are in a dash to colonise new worlds and unlock their riches. The story centres on the planet Illus, stuffed with lithium, which has been claimed by a bunch of miners in the teeth of the intergalactic corporation which owns the rights to strip the place.

Battle-hardened squatters versus stop-at-nothing business greed, it’s all set to kick off. Enter James Holden and the crew of The Rocinante to keep the peace…but there’s something not quite right about the mission. There’s big politics going on somewhere, a theme throughout all the books in the Expanse series.

With Alastair Reynolds scale settings and Golden Age gung-ho, this is energetic and thoroughly satisfying space opera.

The two writers who form James S. A. Corey are phenomenal; they have kept me entertained through public transport and send me to a new world!

Defiantly will keep a look out for any future books released by them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow (and very predictable) burn 3 July 2014
By JPS TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I am afraid I will have to disagree with all of the five and four star reviewers, and even, to some extent, with the three star ones. This book did not work for me. I believe that it is the weakest of the series to date, even weaker than the previous one. I had problems with both the plot, which I found both slow and very predictable, and with some of the characters, which I found unbelievable, especially the villains.

With regards to the scene setting, the whole action takes place on the ground of and in the space around “New Terra”, one of the numerous worlds that the human race is poised to colonise since, through the use of the portal left over by a mysterious and long gone alien race, all of these have now become open to human colonisation. One of the problems here is that to understand and keep up with the story being told, you need to have read the previous ones in the series. To be fair, I should quickly add that this was not a problem for me, since I had read the three previous instalments. What was a problem, however, is that the authors’ seem to have an increasing to write “episodes”, rather than fully-fledged titles. This was already the case to some extent with Abaddon’s Gate (the previous title). It is even more the case with this one and I have to agree with previous reviewers that felt that this book was a bit of a filler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic 25 Jun 2014
By Paysan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This fourth novel is true to its predecessors. Some new characters, some old and half-forgotten ones. Excellent twists and turns in plot. My only disappointment is that Chrisjen isn't in it more but as she"d say, "all I hear is Miao, miao, cry, miao, miao". Great job, Coreys. Keep it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great characters 25 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Continuation of the previous 3 books in the series. Only criticism is that it is too short or felt like it! Now have to wait until the next book (hopefully is one) is released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does not disappoint! 11 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good to meet Holden's team and Miller again and also some interesting new characters and a really great story, starting where book 3 left off. I found myself really looking forward to reading this each evening, and it was really gripping, although the villain lacked a bit of definition as he was really all bad.

Interesting exploration of the politics involved in exploring new planets - who has the authority, those who got there first or powerful corporates? And also a reminder of the unknown dangers of alien biology. A satisfying read with a solid ending and the promise of something new.

Frustrated that this has finished and looking forward to book 5 if there is one.
