"The seventh novel in James S. A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series--now a major television series. AN OLD ENEMY RETURNS In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace. In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it. New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient patterns of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity -- and of the Rocinante -- unexpectedly and forever... Persepolis Rising is the seventh novel in the New York Times bestselling Expanse series"--… (more)

This many books into a series must mean you love it. And the entire series has been good. And this book is no exception.

Some minor quibbles: maybe I’m not recollecting instances where there may have been other descriptions, but there really doesn’t seem to as much said about physical issues for the major characters if they are really thirty years older; some mentions about Bobbie’s aches and Holden’s temples graying but otherwise they seem to move and react like they did thirty years ago.

And they’re still hiring out as freelancers/ independent contractors thirty years later? I thought in one of the earlier books they’d made enough that they were financially independent.

And Singh: the choice to appoint him to be in charge seems...short sighted? He spends so much time dilly-dallying when there are obvious people around him with more experience and better heads on their shoulders. I suppose this is one way to approach making the Laconians seemingly benevolent, but it just didn’t ring true for me. ( )

There are a lot of excellent reviews of this book. Some give incredible detail and analysis of of Persepolis Rising. I whole heartedly recommend reading them. I listened to the audio book version. I enjoyed the audiobook. It was well spoken gave a good emotional feel for each character. The narrator aged a pacing to the novel that could not be gotten from a reading of this novel. There is a certain pathos the narrator was able to impart during particular critical moments. There were times when I felt honest sympathy and pity for the circumstances and ultimate fate of both heroic and villainous characters.

As engaging and quick to read as always. The time jump is a little abrupt, but necessary for the Laconians to develop they way they have and plausible given the technology of the universe. ( )

It's wonderful to read a series that doesn't rehash the same plot over and over again, and doesn't get stupid and starting jumping the shark after the fifth or sixth volume, because the ideas are drying up, but the sales are still decent, so move that product.

This series is highly intelligent, and the world-building and tech building is a beautiful thing to behold. Layer the characters over top of that, and the political and military machinations over that, and this becomes possibly my favourite SF series of all time.

This book is no exception. And I simply love how the authors don't shy away from taking chances and making some big leaps. ( )
