#RRSciFiMonth Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Tiamat’s Wrath by James S.A. Corey (March 26, 2019 by Orbit)

In honor of Sci-Fi Month, I’m featuring sci-fi picks for my Waiting on Wednesday posts for the whole of November. Up first is the next Expanse novel, book number 8 of 9 in this highly acclaimed rollicking space opera series. We’re coming down to the home stretch, folks. Can’t wait to see how these last two books will play out.

“Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper.

In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay.

At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father’s godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn’t guess.

And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte’s authoritarian regime. Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia’s eternal rule — and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose – seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough…”

  1. Wow I didn’t realize this series was on book 8 already! I’ve been watching the Expanse and it is definitely making me interested in reading the books.

  2. The wait for this one will be a little longer than with previous novels, since they usually came out toward the end of the year, but given the contents of the synopsis I know it will be worth the wait. Even though I would prefer to have it NOW… 😀

  3. I’m not even far behind – I simply haven’t started and yet I was so keen and rushed out to buy a copy of the first book. How did I fail so miserably.
    One day.
