Babylon’s Ashes by James S.A. Corey

Well if the last book was spectacular this book is tense and beautiful. It is equally as good. The story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire way. A little slow at the beginning but it was needed and in no way takes anything from the story. There were some unintentionally lovely …

Nemesis Games by James S.A. Corey
