Abbadons Gate is the third installment of James Corey's Expanse series. It depicts a dystopic future, where mankind managed to open the solar system for use, but took all their problems with them.
The three main players in the solar system are Earth, Mars and the Belters, which are the people living on all the small stations, Jupiter moons and asteroids in the outer reaches. Spaceships arent Star Trek or TNG style, nothing is neat, pretty much everything is in need of repairs. There are no fancy laser blasters or energy shields, all of it sounds very believable and realistic. Pretty much like its nowadays with addition of the Epstein drive which let people in this book travel faster than we can in our time.
The story picks up the thread of the prior two books around the proto-molecule, an alien artefact from outer space and brings it to a preliminary end, meaning the story arc of the proto-molecule in the solar system concludes here. But still with some interesting vistas for a new story spin in the future. No cliffhanger, just possibilities.
The summary being done, here goes: This book again contains alot of quite graphic violence and is clearly written for a mature audience as it deals with the finer shades of grey in morality, decision making and human interaction. It is one of the best written Science fiction novels I ever got my hands on.
The story is hardly foreseeable with several unexpected twists. No major "ohhhh, I'd never expected that" though.
Solid, mature, interesting, gripping, suspending, dirty SciFi.
Rates a full five stars any time.
