Summary
The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire. Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth. James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the heart of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more 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"--Back cover

Summary
In this follow-up to Abbadon's Gate, the human race -- both Earth-based and "Belter" -- has gained access to a seemingly infinite number of worlds outside of our solar system. As interstellar travel increases exponentially, so do conflicts between inner and outer system populations. At the center of the dispute is newly discovered, lithium-rich planet Ilus, forcing UN representative James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante to try their hands at diplomacy. Fans of sweeping, dramatic space operas that combine deft characterization with detailed world-building will want to get their hands on this 4th book in the Expanse series, which begins with Leviathan Wakes, followed by Caliban's War. -- Description by Gillian Speace
