KINDLE Tiamat's Wrath: The Expanse, Livre 8 Ä Par James S. A. Corey

Machina without which the story would have had a very different conclusion but I didn t think they justified dropping a star for they don t jar badly enough to spoil the storyYou certainly get a feeling of the time that has passed in the characters universe we are now several decades from the events of the early books in the series I am not sure whether this eighth book is the final volume in the story but if it is then they will have left it at a solid and generally fan friendly ending if there IS to be another book or books planned and the very final line of TW does leave this door at least ajar then I feel that what comes next will have to introduce a significant number of new younger characters to continue the storyAll in all very enjoyable and very highly recommended but you really need to read the full series in order or at the very least read the seventh book PR before this one 4 words in and I hate the authorsEDIT Finished and seriously this is the best
