Publisher Comments:

We are not alone.

The alien protomolecule is clear evidence of an intelligence beyond human reckoning. No one knows what exactly is being built on Venus, but whatever it is, it is vast, powerful, and terrifying.

When a creature of unknown origin and seemingly impossible physiology attacks soldiers on Ganymede, the fragile balance of power in the Solar System shatters. Now, the race is on to discover if the protomolecule has escaped Venus, or if someone is building an army of super-soldiers.

Jim Holden is the center of it all. In spite of everything, he's still the best man for the job to find out what happened on Ganymede. Either way, the protomolecule is loose and Holden must find a way to stop it before war engulfs the entire system.

CALIBAN'S WAR is an action-packed space adventure following in the footsteps of the critically acclaimed Leviathan Wakes.

Review:

"Corey (a joint pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) returns to the politically charged future solar system setting of Leviathan Wakes for a sprawling space opera thriller. Eighteen months have passed since the now defunct corporation Protogen tried — with horrifying results — to harness an alien molecule with the power to rearrange living and inanimate matter. The planet Venus is now infected with the molecule, which may be controlled by an extra — solar system intelligence. The shaky détente among Mars, Earth, and the Outer Planets Alliance shatters after aliens attack Earth and Mars forces on Ganymede, making it look like Earth was the aggressor. Capt. James Holden, lately of the OPA, joins up with a botanist on Ganymede whose missing toddler might be the key to this new incident, while U.N. diplomat Chrisjen Avasarala and Martian soldier Bobbie Draper try desperately to avoid interplanetary war. This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

An exhilarating ride of a story -- glorious in it's mixed elements of space opera and horror and political thriller. This book was every bit as "un-put-down-able" as the previous novel, Leviathan Wakes. Cue the epic music and settle in for a high-G ride that will make you grip the edge of your crash couch.
