Leviathan Wakes (Expanse 1)

Leviathan Wakes - James S.A. Corey If the 5 star rating doesn't make it clear ... I loved this book and will definitely be reading the next in the series.

Now for the spoil-less details.

The action is well paced. Reading was like riding a perfectly designed roller coaster. The highs and lows just right and in just the right places to keep me feeling like I was having the time of my life.

The characters ... all beautifully flawed. I hated, loved, ached for, was irritated with and laughed at/with every single one of them. I loved the different POVs. And it was great seeing how different minds can see, approach, deal with the same problem. The authors did a magnificent job with this ... so well thought out.

The story arc ... excellent. All the various tendrils of the story were woven together seamlessly to make for a great tale. Enough unknowns remain for future exploration of the universe. And I can't wait to start reading Caliban's War (book 2).
