For someone who didn't intend to wreck the solar system's fragile balance of power, Jim Holden did a pretty good job of it. While Earth and Mars have stopped shooting each other, the core alliance is shattered. The outer planets and the Belt are uncertain in their new - possibly temporary - autonomy.
Then, on one of Jupiter's moons, a single super-soldier attacks, slaughtering soldiers of Earth and Mars indiscriminately and reigniting the war. The race is on to discover whether this is the vanguard of an alien army or if the danger lies closer to home.

My works book club started this series earlier in the year. I’ve been watching the TV series of this show with the BF so I kind of knew the story anyway but I’ve been wanting to read this series so this was a good opportunity to push it to the top of my TBR pile.

I’m really struggling with what to say about this book that I didn’t say in the first book. I struggle a lot with reviews of sequels like this one. there’s lots of action, a bit of romance and a hell of a lot of policitcs. That’s really what this series comes down to politics with space travel.

One of my favourite characters is Avasarala. She is a strong woman who takes no prisoners. She says what she thinks and doesn’t care about the consequences. Another favourite of mine is Bobbie Draper. She is very much like Avasarala. These two women really are an inspiration!

I’m looking forward to continuing the series.
