The sixth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Babylon's Ashes has the galaxy in full revolution, and it's up to the crew of the Rocinante to make a desperate mission to the gate network and thin hope of victory. Now a Prime Original series.

A revolution brewing for generations has begun in fire. It will end in blood.

The Free Navy - a violent group of Belters in black-market military ships - has crippled the Earth and begun a campaign of piracy and violence among the outer planets. The colony ships heading for the thousand new worlds on the far side of the alien ring gates are easy prey, and no single navy remains strong enough to protect them.

James Holden and his crew know the strengths and weaknesses of this new force better than anyone. Outnumbered and outgunned, the embattled remnants of the old political powers call on the Rocinante for a desperate mission to reach Medina Station at the heart of the gate network.

But the new alliances are as flawed as the old, and the struggle for power has only just begun.

Babylon's Ashes is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the bestselling Nemesis Games.

Sorry, this is posted a bit later than I intended. This is part of The Expanse series and needs to be read in order, the first book is Leviathan Wakes. There are also three seasons of The Expanse series based on the books that was shown on SyFy. The fourth season will be on Amazon. The series is quite respectful to the books. This is another one of those books in this series, that shifts everything around, alters the reality of the human race once again. The crew of The Rocinante find themselves once again pulled back into the spot light. In order to stop the Free Navy, strange alliances must be formed, and an unexpected death, has Holden taking on a role he never wanted. As always, Corey does a wonderful job weaving a story with twists and turns, even interweaving some characters from previous books into it, in a way that feels so natural and right. Another wonderful installment of The Expanse series. Worth the time to read. Sci-fi done right.

I loved the character development. As usual the people are so well developed. But the conflict itself seemed as an after thought: poof and it was over. A bit disappointing.

Another amazing installment to this epic series. It was a slow start for me (but it could have just been me). Things are all wrapped up nicely and I can't wait to see where they take the series in the next book. For the full review check out

Enjoyable series, I like mix of futuristic alien tech and our own "classic space travel tech". Would recommend to any sci-fi fan.
