Format: Paperback
Cibola Burn is the fourth book in James Corey's Expanse series, a series that seems set to beat the record of the longest sci-fi set of novels since Asimov's Foundation, since it now counts five volumes and shows no sign of nearing the end. Cibola Burn lives up to the quality of the initial trilogy, moreover, picking up where the alien rings were made available for travelling to and exploring new worlds. The crew of the Rocinante, led by captain James Holden, is now firmly in the place of resident heroes. A new world, named Ilus, has begun to be colonised, but predictably who is to do the job is disputed, with a scientific team backed by private muscle fighting for the privilege with a ramshackle group of Belter colonists. Holden is called in to arbitrate, but of course Ilus is not empty anyway, having once belonged to the creators of the rings. Fast-paced and richly characterised, Cibola Burn is a worthy instalment in the series.

Struggling to understand the negative reviews for this book. Overall very entertaining with good mixture of characters. Would definitely recommend.

This series just goes from strength to strength - presenting a believable sci-fi world that's a mix of optimistic futurism and depressingly familiar realpolitik and then smashing it with a series of ever-escalating crises. It's a compelling and fairly unique mix of space opera and serious science-fiction that manages to feel relatively gritty and believable while also being tense and exciting.

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.

Another excellent edition in the Expanse series. I've torn through these 4 books, and am eagerly awaiting the review of the 5th.

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.

As with the other books in the series, fast pace, complex and likeable characters with an excellent plot. My favourite bits are the way James Corey paints such an immense and beautifully believable future for our solar system and in this book more systems beyond. A future complete with inter-planetary politics and different human cultures.

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.

A series that started very strongly then slumped a bit, returned to a semblance of form and then, with this book, dips again. It seems as though the odd-number books are rather better. Although the established characters are again strong the book suffers from some real issues. Would a colony really be so totally blasé and ignorant of their environment as that featured in this book? Would the abundance of lithium be a more attractive prospect than the alien ruins/technology lying all about them? Suffice to say that the best scenes are the ones which most closely mirror the previous books – where the crew of the Rocinante are up against the odds and fighting for their lives. 3 stars.

I was looking forward to this book alot, considering how excellent the other Corey books were. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers, that this is a much weaker book than the first 3 books. Although it has the interesting reoccurring characters from previous books, such characters are not given much time to shine. Instead, the focus is on new characters which seem to fail to have any real character to them. Which is a shame as Corey has shown that he can create new very likely characters (such as Bobby) to populate his universe.

So all in all, its an ok book. Not an excellent one like the previous ones.

Woof woof, seriously though, the series so far is a crackingly good. Characters you want to hug, or shoot, places you want to see and places you will never get me to, situations which reflect humanities penchant for doing everything right first time every time. I jest. Seriously, buy a gun and then buy the book. I expect you will shoot the book or teach the book to shoot by the end of it. I am going for some serious relaxation now, maybe give the cat a fright for laughs. The booze will flow and I will be unconscious on the masters bed. Mistresses side naturally. We chaps have to stick together what! Hah! Ta ta. Woof woof.
