Staff Pick

Leviathan Wakes is an excellent, fast-paced, well-thought-out version of a near-future, space-faring humanity. Full of actual science, realistic characters, and a believable human future, the novel contains some very intriguing ideas about space combat and possible alien life. I'd recommend this book to hard-core science fiction lovers along with just about anyone.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Humanity has colonized the solar system - Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt and beyond - but the stars are still out of our reach.

Jim Holden is XO of an ice miner making runs from the rings of Saturn to the mining stations of the Belt. When he and his crew stumble upon a derelict ship, The Scopuli, they find themselves in possession of a secret they never wanted. A secret that someone is willing to kill for - and kill on a scale unfathomable to Jim and his crew. War is brewing in the system unless he can find out who left the ship and why.

Detective Miller is looking for a girl. One girl in a system of billions, but her parents have money and money talks. When the trail leads him to The Scopuli and rebel sympathizer Holden, he realizes that this girl may be the key to everything.

Holden and Miller must thread the needle between the Earth government, the Outer Planet revolutionaries, and secretive corporations - and the odds are against them. But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the fate of the universe.

Good hard scifi / horror story. I generally enjoy stories that explain what happens with new scientific discoveries, and this book / the series promises to focus on these story elements. Characters were well drawn as well. It was interesting to have what seemed like a 40s noir like character in a hard sci fi book.
