Rocinante still rocking
Classic sci-fi putting Ordinary People in extraordinary situations to explore what it is to be human
The best thing about the first book, and to some extent the second was the introduction of the thought provoking idea of the proto-molecule and the mystery surrounding it. So the plot, basically.
But in this installment the plot just got silly.
We got the introduction of a new character, Clarissa, who decides to get revenge for her father's fall in the previous book. And guess what she decides to take revenge not on Avasarala from Book 2 who was primarily responsible for her father's fall, but on James Holden who for some reason she blames more. This really feels like a ludicrously contrived way of creating an enemy for us to root against.
And, spoiler coming, I really thought the story in the final third made no sense.I.e. that there's a super powerful alien intelligence that will destroy the galaxy, unless we can turn off our engines! That will show it we mean no harm! And guess what there's a cartoon villain captain who doesn't want to do that, and will (inadvertantly) destroy us all unless we can stop him.
Having said that there were some good things. The belters / Mars / Earth rivalry, rings as true as it did in earlier books. And it's a nice moment when the main protagonists mistake Clarissa for Julie.
