The sixth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Babylon's Ashes has the galaxy in full revolution, and it's up to the crew of the Rocinante to make a desperate mission to the gate network and thin hope of victory. Now a Prime Original series.


A revolution brewing for generations has begun in fire. It will end in blood.

The Free Navy -- a violent group of Belters in black-market military ships -- has crippled the Earth and begun a campaign of piracy and violence among the outer planets. The colony ships heading for the thousand new worlds on the far side of the alien ring gates are easy prey, and no single navy remains strong enough to protect them.

James Holden and his crew know the strengths and weaknesses of this new force better than anyone. Outnumbered and outgunned, the embattled remnants of the old political powers call on the Rocinante for a desperate mission to reach Medina Station at the heart of the gate network.

But the new alliances are as flawed as the old, and the struggle for power has only just begun.

Babylon's Ashes is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the bestselling Nemesis Games.

The book is another in one of the best sci-fi series. The narrator is awesome. He’s a voice character actor and I don’t think it would be anything near the same experience without his contribution.

Good story and great narration. I agree with others in that the book’s story isn’t the strongest in the series so far; it took Some time to get going which I thought was needless in some ways. It was great to have the main characters together and interacting with each other again though, as would have been expected at the end of Babylon’s ashes.

Not the best book of the series but not the worst. And it is a must read if you want to keep going with the crew. Narration is nice.

Another amazing installment to Expanse Series. Corey's is an amazing storyteller and world builder. The character's motivations and actions are so well aligned that you can't help but feel the plot progress autonomously. Super excited to continue with the next volume.

Love this series and it is in full swing with this installment. Corey does an excellent job of bringing back some of my favorite characters from the previous books in the series. Love the narration as well, it would not be the same without Mays- although he did change his pronunciation of gimbal for not apparent reason.
