ABADDON’S GATE: a literary blockbuster of epic proportions
- June 4th, 2013-
Things started simply enough: a ship is found mysteriously abandoned by its crew, but we’ve all watched and read enough space adventures to know that nothing is ever quite so simple. With each twist and page-turning sequence, the Expanse series has grown to become an absolute gem of the subgenre and today, the latest novel ABADDON’S GATE (US | UK | AUS), begins hitting bookshelves. Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, the writing team behind James S.A. Corey, knocked it out of the park once again as you’ll see in the terrific reviews the novel has already gotten.
Check out the James S.A. Corey Facebook page to read the first few chapters and whet your appetite until you get a hold of your own copy. If you haven’t taken the leap yet, here’s an excerpt from LEVIATHAN WAKES ( US | UK | AUS).
As an extra treat, we made a set of wallpapers from the stunning cover illustration by Daniel Dociu. Enjoy!
Praise for ABADDON’S GATE
“High adventure equaling the best space opera has to offer, cutting-edge technology, and a group of unforgettable characters bring the third installment of Corey’s epic space drama (after Caliban’s War and Leviathan Wakes) to an action-filled close while leaving room for more stories to unfold. Perhaps one of the best tales the genre has yet to produce…” Library Journal (Starred Review)
“Corey (a shared pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) delivers a politically complex and pulse-pounding page-turner to continue the Expanse space opera series.” – Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“Courageous and audacious, with short chapters, smart characters, and a snappy narrative, it’s leaps and bounds bigger and better than the vast majority of space opera. And the fun is undoubtedly far from done.” – The Speculative Scotsman
