Micro Mention "Tiamat's Wrath"

James SA Corey

I haven't finished "The Expanse" novel series yet, mainly because the last one isn't out yet, but I can firmly say that "Tiamat's Wrath" is my favorite of the series, right up there and tied with the first novel "Leviathan Wakes."

Without giving too much away about this book or the series—I think it's pretty safe to assume that people have inferred that years and years have taken place after eight novels. Ok? Ok. So, a darkhorse favorite character of mine is Old Man Holden, as I call him. I know—I know there's Amos Burton or Chrisjen Avasarala, and I love them both, but it's Holden who comes out on top for me. How do I justify space Jon Snow as my favorite character? Well, it all has to do with his "The Dancing Bear" chapters in this book. Without spoiling too much, you find out that Holden in his old age isn't just funnier—he's far craftier too.

I still don't like the covers of these books, though. I'm sure some extremely talented, well-paid artists created them, and I feel bad about that, but I never know what the fuck is going on in them. Maybe I'm just thick.
