Excellent sequel to the first book of the series. All our favourite characters have returned... well most of them. :) I have been firmly confirmed in my favouritism towards Amos and Chrisjen Avasarala. That being said, I love most of the characters. And we get to meet the stellar Bobbie Draper, Martian marine extraordinaire. She and Chrisjen working together are the absolute best.
The plot of this book clips along at a decent pace and the writing style makes it an easy, fluid read. I have to say that I've watched all 3 existing seasons of The Expanse and have found that the they're fairly faithful to the books and the changes not too jarring.
Anyway, loved my read and am looking forward to getting to book 3, which I have on tap soon. :)
