Hip are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos But the he looks at it the Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone And that something killed it The Expanse soon to be a major Syfy Channel television series Leviathan Wakes Caliban's War Abaddon's Gate Cibola Burn Nemesis Games The Expanse Short Fiction The Butcher of Anderson Station Gods of Risk The Chur. I finished it due in large part because of my love for the Expanse series overall as I devoured Leviathan Wakes thru Abaddon's Gate in short order Cibola Burn however fell short of my expectations for many reasons most of which have already been detailed in previous reviewsFirst the new characters Basia's story arc was probably the most interesting of the newcomers yet even still I found myself becoming bored with his predictability Havelock for the most part I found myself wanting to skip and out of boredom as well It's sad that almost 300 pages in the most interesting thing Havelock has done is play paintball with engineers and mull over BelterInner 'racism' But Elvi good God I cringe even typing the name Undoubtedly the absolute worst most annoying uninteresting character of the entire series I don't know how you go from powerhouses like Bobbie Chrisjen Bull and even Praxidike to the subpar lineup that we have in Cibola Burn After the first few persepctive changes I would speedread through Elvi's parts just to get them out of the way She'd have been believable as a teenage stowaway aboard the Edward Israel than as an accomplished respected scientistThe villain was just as bad Predictable utterly two dimensional and so mind blowingly stupid that it killed any shred of believability he might have had Then again the Expanse isn't exactly known for the strength of its villains the guy Holden and his crew found at the Protogen base for exampleI waited a long time for this novel's release I anticipated June 17th like it was something sacred and now I'm still in a state of disbelief as to how disappointing I found this book to be Caliban's War and Abaddon's Gate were both so damn good that I read them again before the release of Cibola Burn I'll keep reading Expanse as I have faith in the ability of Ty and David to create something extraordinary but I sincerely hope Cibola Burn isn't a glimpse of things to come

Cibola BurnThe explosive fourth novel in James SA Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series Now a major television series on SyfyENTER A NEW FRONTIER An empty apartment a missing family that's creepy But this is like finding a military base with no one on it Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers This is bad juju Something wrong happened here What you should do is tell everyone to leave The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun Settlers look. Cibola Burn brings The Expanse back to its good form Cibola Burn the fourth volume in The Expanse series has often been said as the weakest book of the series And after the previous books— Abaddon’s Gate and the novellasshort stories of the series which I’ve read so far— which left me disappointed I was seriously scared this one would be even worse As it turns out I ended up enjoying it “Right” Holden said “No coffee This is a terrible terrible planet” Not only there’s no coffee but the tension between the people on the planet of Ilus is rising To mediate Avasarala sends Holden and the crew of Rocinante to Ilus to resolve the matter Little did they know that in addition to being mediator the planet of Ilus also has their own danger such as blindness plague deadly slugs and deadly storms There aren’t many noteworthy things to elaborate in terms of plot; the series has followed a formulaic storytelling structure for the past three books and it’s still the same here However Holden and the crew of Rocinante continue to entertain with their great relationship developments and the new POV characters were in my opinion far engaging than the one we had in Abaddon’s Gate “Later when you're wishing we had this stuff I am going to be merciless in my mockery And then we'll die” The superb parts about this book and pretty much the series have always been the characters In Cibola Burn it was engrossing to see how much the friendship and trust between Holden and Amos grew For the remaining crew of the Rocinante Naomi and Alex also have to cooperate while they’re separated from Holden and Amos In a way that’s a bit similar to Prax one of the new POV character here—Basia—deals with his struggle in doing everything he can to protect his family The main villain of this novel—Murtry—was cold blooded and intimidating as a villain In other words I can sum up Cibola Burn as being a step up to the things that Abaddon’s Gate didn’t get right for me “Last man standing Amos replied with another grin It's in my job description” As much as I enjoyed Cibola Burn I must also admit that the series is starting to get a bit stale and too repetitive That’s also why my review for the series continuously gets shorter because there aren’t many new elements to talk about with each new installment I’m almost halfway through the series now and at the moment I do think that the series is slightly overrated It’s still great of course but so many modern sci fi readers consider it the best sci fi series to exist in decades; I personally think it’s a good series that averaged steadily at 4 stars rating This is only my assessment of the series so far though I’ve heard the second half starting from Nemesis Games is where the series starts improving dramatically Let’s hope I agree with thatYou can order the book from Book Depository Free shippingYou can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions Special thanks to my Patrons on Patreon for giving me extra support towards my passion for reading and reviewingMy Patrons Alfred Devin Hamad Jimmy Nutts Joie Mike Miracle Nicholas
