So part three in the adventures of the Roci. We are introduced again to a new set of characters, though Holden is still around. We have Anna a preacher, Bull an Earther working for the OPA and Melba/Clarissa who I won’t say too much about. I think an issue I had was that I didn’t connect as well to these characters as I did to Bobby and Avasarala in the previous volume.
There is a lot of action and the most of it revolves around the consequences of the end of Caliban’s War. I really enjoyed Holden’s interactions with an old friend and the limitations in the ‘slow zone’. I think another issue I had was that the climax at the end felt a little forced, not entirely realistic, but saying that it was still great to read about. So another very good book but I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the previous two.
4 stars out of 5
