Very disappointed in this next part of the saga. Virtually no science in the book which revolves around politics. I found it very boring. Just hope the next book picks up the concepts of the gates and has much more science fiction.

Nemesis Games could have got the same message out in under 50 pages instead of dragging on for 530 pages, leaving lots of room to explore more science fiction. ( )

If I sometimes complain about the fact that it’s difficult to find self-contained books in SFF literature because nowadays writers seem more inclined toward series, there are exceptions that make me quite happy with narrative cycles, especially when – as is the case of the Expanse series – each book adds something new, broadening and deepening the reader’s understanding of any given fictional world and its characters.

This is particularly true with Nemesis Games: while the focus turns inwards, dealing with troubles in the Solar System rather than with the wider issues of the off-world portal previously introduced, the authors give us deeper insights on the characters, especially with members of the Rocinante’s crew...

Trigger Warning: emotional abuse & suicidal ideation.

Wow. So many "holy shit!" moments in this book. Especially the ending because the authors like to do that.

This book had so much wonderful backstory stuff on the characters, and it was so hard sometimes, some of it, and I'm glad we got it here in the fifth book because I'm not sure I would have been ready for it in earlier books. But now this crew is like my family, too. (Just, aw, so much found family in this book.)

So much great political stuff, too. What happened is reshaping everything about humanity and I love how well thought out it all is. I can't wait to read more. ( )

As the fifth in a 9-part trilogy of trilogies, this book is clearly meant as an inflection point in the Expanse series. Like the first four novels, the chapters rotate in viewpoint among a handful of characters. But in the first four novels, those viewpoints were James Holden, captain of the Rocinante, and three or four others, outside the crew. This time, the other viewpoints are the other three crew members, Alex, Amos, and Naomi, and no one else. This time, none of the four characters are on the Rocinante, nor anywhere near each other. Alex, Amos, and Naomi each return to their points of origin, in unrelated cases of unfinished business. This time, the protomolecule, the driver of the series so far, plays almost no role in the plotlines. But, never fear, big and terrible things still happen, on both an individual and grand scale, and the story clips along at the same pace as previous novels, with the same mix of action, horror, and occasional humor.

Recommended for fans, but only after reading the first three books. (The fourth, the most unrelentingly grim one, is optional, as far as this book goes.) ( )

The fifth novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series--now being produced for television by the SyFy Channel!

A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle.

Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price.

And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.
