In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife-edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship, Rocinante, have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace. In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and the Belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices.

After the last book, I was starting to lose interest in the series. Not anymore!

The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans - and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous’s fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality. Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps - young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff - Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants....

The Trisolarian fleet has left their home world and will arrive in four centuries' time. But the Sophons and their extradimensional emissaries are already here. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a last-ditch defence that grants four individuals almost absolute power to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

I loved this book, perhaps even more than the first part. Unfortunately Audible does not have the third party of the series for us Europeans, luckily a few of their competitors do (like Kobo books or Google play books), so I suggest that others go there to find it.

Excellent book that is expertly read. Takes a while for the story to get going, but I enjoy stories that build up over time which only makes it better. The science elements are imaginative and unique. Overall a great book that I would recommend to any Sci-Fi fan.

From the Audie-nominated narrator of The Martian. In eleven years time, a million members of an alien race will arrive at Earth. Years before they enter orbit, their approach will be announced by the flare of a thousand flames in the sky, their ships' huge engines burning hard to slow them from the vast speeds needed to cross interstellar space. These foreboding lights will shine in our night sky like new stars, getting ever brighter until they outshine even the sun, casting ominous shadows and banishing the night until they suddenly blink out.

The story is great and the author provides a fairly unique take on science fiction which is rather well anchored in real science, which is refreshing. However I was not too fond of the characters and found myself thinking that the author was exaggerating their flaws (perhaps in an offer the top attempt at not being them Betty Sues) which, to me, made them less believable and relatable. With that said, I will still listen to the rest of the series!
