Overview

Abaddon's Gate (Expanse Series #3) by James S. A. Corey

The explosive third novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series!

For generations, the solar system — Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt — was humanity's great frontier. Until now. The alien artifact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has appeared in Uranus's orbit, where it has built a massive gate that leads to a starless dark.

Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artifact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.

Great read! I hope they make this series of books into a series of movies. There are way too few good sci-fi movies, and this one would make a great classic!

I enjiy reading each book of this series. I just wonder why the author used Spanish and Hungarian words in the same sentence on page 5?

Great ending to series! Images of a proto molecule infested asteroid colony still haunt me.

Good read, but not quite up to the quality of the preceding novels.

This book had pretty much the same plot as the first two books in the series.  By the third book, the exact same formula got pretty boring.  The end was interesting, but left things very wide open for another sequel.

I enjoyed the ride of the space opera. As the third book in a series it continues and ties up an ongoing story. It uses a changing POV to tell the story. One is Jim Holden who is in charge of the Rocinante, a stolen Martian warship. This book spends a great deal of time on religious questions. One POV is Anna, a minister who travels into space. A major plot of this story, like the previous two, involves the challenge of the protomolecule and the struggle between the three great powers. Earth, Mars and the outer planets are in a power struggle and the protomolecule is one pole of the struggle. The last quarter of the book involves an intense battle for control of the giant spaceship, Behemoth. This small unit fighting involves almost all characters in the story. The lead up involved the steps that all the characters took to bring them to the same spot in space. I think this book would appeal to fans of space opera and readers who enjoy military fiction and alien invasion stories. I think it best to read the three books in order.

This was a great series and finished well. I found myself caring about the characters more than I usually do. I look forward to more from these authors.

This is the third book in The Expanse series and needs to be read in order. The first book is Leviathan Wakes. This third installment doesn’t disappoint. The line of dominoes that was pushed by the release of the Protomolecule, has given the opportunity for someone to put Holden once again in the cross-hairs, setting a secret plan in motion, one that needed what the Protomolecule Gate inn order to pull Holden into the right place, at the right time. But this time the threat isn’t just The Protomolecule and the humans who have been playing God, and trying to manipulate things to their favor, it’s not even the player with grim intentions for Holden and his crew, the worst threat was already brought within them to the Gate. By the end, again, one is left wondering where the humans of The Expanse will end up next.
