This is how it ends. Leviathan Falls is the explosive final novel in the New York Times bestselling and Hugo Award–winning Expanse series, now a major TV series.
The Laconian Empire has fallen, setting the thirteen hundred solar systems free from the rule of Winston Duarte. But the ancient enemy that killed the gate builders is awake, and the war against our universe has begun again.
In the dead system of Adro, Elvi Okoye leads a desperate scientific mission to understand what the gate builders were and what destroyed them, even if it means compromising herself and the half-alien children who bear the weight of
her investigation. Through the wide-flung systems of humanity, Colonel Aliana Tanaka hunts for Duarte’s missing daughter … and the shattered emperor himself.
And on the Rocinante, James Holden and his crew struggle to build a future for humanity out of the shards and ruins of all that has come before.
As nearly unimaginable forces prepare to annihilate all human life, Holden and a group of unlikely allies discover a last, desperate chance to unite all of humanity, with the promise of a vast galactic civilization free from wars, factions, lies, and secrets if they win.
But the price of victory may be worse than the cost of defeat.

I thought that this last tale was probably the worst of all the stories written in the line of books. The authors (known commonly as James S.A. Corey) seemed like they were trying to tie things up as fast as they could in order to get the story line over and done with. It was disappointing to see this ending occur. I had been waiting for a real blockbuster of a finale and hoped for a really amazing story line. What readers got was a bit of a let down. Overall a decent read though.

It must be very difficult for an author who has given birth to these characters to see them at the end. This author has taken our favorite people from the beginnings of their lives to the resolution of them. The tenor of this novel is melancholy at the best to almost abject depression. Even then he still loves the characters and does not abandon them. For those that have gone through the chronology of this series this is a must READ. Although there is a \r\nstring of sorrow running through the narrative there is also hope. I am writing this review not having read the last few chapters. I think I am more objective to do it this way. We will see.

I wish I was an author. As I might have the semantic ability to express how wonderful this book is both as a stand-alone book but also as the culmination of a brilliant series. Lots has been said about the realistic depiction of the physics, engineering and reality of life in space and it’s all correct. However the human aspects of the storytelling between the leviathan waking and falling is wonderful. Honestly this book has it all and without spoilers, no one who has been into the series will be disappointed at the ending. We’ve had series that have ended leaving us feeling like something is missing. The expanse is not that. Enjoy, I can’t recommend this book or the series more highly
