MissLucas December 25, 2017 Share December 25, 2017 (edited) Well, I liked it a lot better than Babylon's Ashes. Spoiler The time jump was jarring but I can see why it was a narrative necessity (the problem lies more with Babylon's Ashes). But geez, how old is everybody by now? And although I'm glad Avasarala is still around it felt a bit like fan-service. Of course the things nobody really cares to investigate come back with a vengeance. In this case the disappeared Martians and the 'bullet'. It always struck me as odd that nobody bothered to check what actually destroyed the ring-building culture just in case it would make an unwelcome return. But that's maybe human. Not enough time was spent on the Roci, hmrp! But I was insanely happy for Bobbie when she realized how to get her own ship. Moments of happiness are rare in this series and so I cherished that. Random observations: I know nobody misses the little s*** but I was still wondering what had happened to Filip. Clarissa got a good exit. Bobbie was the book's MVP. And no matter how shiny and perfect Laconian rhetoric and ideology was presented - the pen renders that all null and void. Can't wait for Holden to find out and then blow the whistle on that one.
