Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price.

After the previous books left me a little disappointed, this book has really picked up the pace again. It was a real page-turner for me, the character development was interesting, the story was great, and it had some really tense scenes. So, yeah, even if you did not quite like the previous two books in the series, give this one a shot. Plus, the epilogue leaves me... interested to see what happens in the next book. ( )

The team go on individual mission, related to their past, but not really. It wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be, we learned a bit more about Naomi and Amos, but not that much. Feels like a lost opportunity.

As for the Free Navy, it feels like an operation like they pulled would have required decades of preparation, not months like they must have really had. Weak also. 3 stars. ( )

Another fabulous roller coaster ride... ( )

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...
