Micro Mention "Nemesis Games"

James SA Corey

"Nemesis Games" by James S.A. Corey represents yet another seachange moment in The Expanse series, a series of stories known for those moments. It's a story about how a little bit of vainglorious stupidity mixed with a lot of anger can get a lot of people killed.

This is the story that, in my opinion, sets the tone and contributes the most to how the latter half of this excellent series would be shaped. The earlier novels are certainly related and flow from one to the next, but they still feel like self-enclosed containers. Each book has its own story that is distinct in time and place. Starting with "Nemesis Games," though, the macro, overall story, becomes the A plot, and that feeling of discreet, individual stories strung together fades away.
