Revue de presse

"It's been too long since we've had a really kickass space opera. LEVIATHAN WAKES is interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written, the kind of SF that made me fall in love with the genre way back when, seasoned with a dollop of horror and a dash of noir. Jimmy Corey writes with the energy of a brash newcomer and the polish of a seasoned pro. So where's the second book?"―George R.R. Martin on Leviathan Wakes

"The science fictional equivalent of A Song of Ice and Fire... only with fewer beheadings and way more spaceships."―NPR Books on Cibola Burn

"Combining an exploration of real human frailties with big SF ideas and exciting thriller action, Corey cements the series as must-read space opera."―Library Journal on Cibola Burn (Starred Review)

"The Expanse is the best space opera series running at full tilt right now, and Cibola Burn continues that streak of excellence."―io9 on Cibola Burn

"A politically complex and pulse-pounding page-turner.... Corey perfectly balances character development with action... series fans will find this installment the best yet."―Publishers Weekly on Abaddon's Gate

"An excellent space operatic debut in the grand tradition of Peter F. Hamilton."―Charles Stross on Leviathan Wakes

"High adventure equaling the best space opera has to offer, cutting-edge technology, and a group of unforgettable characters bring the third installment of Corey's epic space drama (after Caliban's War and Leviathan Wakes) to an action-filled close while leaving room for more stories to unfold. Perhaps one of the best tales the genre has yet to produce, this superb collaboration between fantasy author Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck should reawaken an interest in old-fashioned storytelling and cinematic pacing. Highly recommended."―Library Journal on Abaddon's Gate

"Literary space opera at its absolute best."―io9.com on Abaddon's Gate

"[T]he authors are superb with the exciting bits: Shipboard coups and battles are a thrill to follow."―Washington Post on Abaddon's Gate

"Riveting interplanetary thriller."―Publishers Weekly on Leviathan Wakes

Présentation de l'éditeur

The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonise has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Illus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.

Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world.

James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the heart of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail.

And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilisation which once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed them.

Cibola Burn is the exhilarating fourth novel in the New York Times bestselling Expanse series, following the Hugo-nominated Leviathan Wakes, Caliban's War and Abaddon's Gate.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A transition novel that disappoints a bit 24 juin 2014
Par Todd S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Previous books in the series have established a future in which the solar system has been claimed by three factions, but the stars are out of reach. The Expanse has done space opera right with touches of Aliens and Chinatown thrown in for flavor. However, much of the momentum created by the preceding novels has been wasted just as the universe has opened up.

Mild Spoilers: The initial setup of squatters versus corporation does a great job of pitting two equally grey groups against each other. Daniel Abraham (one half of James Corey) has always excelled at characters that are understandable despite their awful choices. Yet, the introduction of a stereotypical, mustache-twirling villain in the form of a security chief destroys this balance. The unnecessary escalation of violence followed by random dangers (storms, slugs, and algae) just feels sloppy. None of the new characters add much and the female character who essentially "just needs to get laid" is a bit offensive. The ending is compressed and rushed. Further, the lack of consequences to characters despite the constant cataclysmic events robs much of the tension.
End Spoilers:

Don't take my criticism to mean that you shouldn't read the book. I still highly recommend the series and look forward to the next entry, but I hope things pick up. The series is best when the characters aren't confined to a single planet.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Weak plot and one-dimensional characters steal the word Opera right out of "Space Opera" for a plodding drag through the mud. 9 juillet 2014
Par G. College - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I find myself agreeing heartily with other reviewers. I was instantly converted into a fan of The Expanse series, but this book left me with a poor experience.

The first thing that took me out was the premise and the plot. The opening idea is that, as soon as we are faced with the ability to jointly colonize thousands of worlds, a single ship made a run for one of them and started squatting there. This is asinine. First of all, I don't understand how a mom-and-pop ship of motley Ganymede outcasts would beat the UN, the OPA, and Mars to probing the new worlds, let alone just flying right past Fred Johnson and the OPA's Medina Station to go and squat, and everyone just allowed them to. Previous books in the series have always been about the power-struggle between these forces, and how they never give an inch, but an independent vessel shooting through the ring (which is the one and only ship who got this idea in the whole of the Sol system, apparently) just glides on through.

So if we suspend our disbelief enough to allow for this, we can now have a plot contrived around the idea of the Wild West, and who can claim land and who makes the laws. If you didn't catch on to that initially, it will be mentioned repeatedly during the struggle between Holden and his obstinate, cartoonish antagonist.

Which brings me to the antagonist (and his equally obstinate right-hand man). They are simply self-destructive, unrealistic hazards that somehow ingratiated themselves into the upper eschelon of a massive corporation that we are repeatedly sold to the notion are one half of a morally grey tapestry, and are reminded constantly that they're not the bad guys, they're just here to claim what has been given them by the various governments of Sol. Except they employ psychopathic megalomaniacs, and employ scorched earth tactics when faced with opposition. It becomes very hard to see the "grey" in this conflict. And erstwhile good-intended characters follow along with this mania, because they're just "following orders".

This is the Michael Bay version of The Expanse. It's a situation of humorously-escalating apocalyptic stakes, one-dimensional characters who behave outside the realm of believability, and a deus-ex-machina (literally) that solves the plot in an "everyone wins but the bad guys" scenario. It doesn't detract from the Bay comparison that the former kepeers of Ilus indeed remind one of the modern Transformers (another lazy creation).

But the thing that bugs me the most, out of everyone, is the character of Elvi Okoye. We are constantly reminded that she is attractive, but quirky to the point of being unaware of how dorky she is. I guess it should be hilarious (?) every time she starts passionately talking about science and then whomever she is talking to verbally pats her on the head (this happens many times). Worse still is her immediate puppy-dog infatuation for James Holden. She is immediately head-over-heels in love with the intrepid hero, to the point where it is ruining her ability to function as a normal human being. And how is this resolved? By her getting laid. The one-dimensional female caricature is "fixed" by simply getting some, and her obsessive fantasies dissolve. Once again, she is simply pacified by the men around her.

I get that not every woman in the universe has to the the bad-ass ambassador for women's rights (though I would've loved some more Bobbie Draper in this book, to be sure), but this is patently in the wrong side of the field. I was honestly insulted by her character.

This is a transition novel in every sense of the phrase. I have no doubt that the payoff resulting from this will be great (the last line of the book spoken by Avasarala gave me a chill up my spine), but the road there is bumpy. I feel like there is this grand notion of where the series is going, but to get there we had to just suspend rationality and accept this novel as the bridge that got us there. If I find myself reading The Expanse again (I will no doubt re-read the original trilogy), I will be skipping Cibola Burn.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Excellent Work Continues, But This Is More Of A Transitional Novel 19 juin 2014
Par Jeffrey Frank - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Put this on your "to read" list if you have enjoyed any of the earlier novels. Put this on your "must read" list if you loved Abaddon's Gate. This novel is like a workhorse episode of one of your favorite science fiction TV shows (not the one that hooked you, but one of the middle ones you really liked), and it shows that James S.A. Corey can tackle this universe from the smallest to the largest scale.

This novel still gets 5 stars in my book, because compared to other science fiction series it is one of the only ones left that I would still buy just knowing that it is by a particular author.

- Masterfully remixes plot and character elements from the series, especially Abaddon's Gate
- Sets the series up for more stunning political & economic challenges that have always been a key part of what makes these books great
- Maintains a fantastic sense of suspense, excitement, and wonder while feeling remarkably grounded - one of the best elements of this series is how if feels meticulously attentive to detail and how it hews to most hard science fiction conventions before adding one major improbable element to the mix just to see what happens.

- Core / returning characters who are better together are split for long parts of the novel
- Only around half of the key characters introduced in this book really seem to earn their major actions later in the novel, so there are a lot of moments where readers could justifiably ask why they do what they do

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cibola Burn is incredibly suspenseful and exciting (like a really good Western!) 17 juillet 2014
Par Mad Professah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The fourth book in The Expanse series by James S.A. Corey, Cibola Burn, was released on June 17, 2014 and I devoured it in three days. Things are going well for Corey right now as earlier this year it was announced that SyFy has decided to make a television series out of The Expanse books, ordering a first season of 10 episodes, describing it as their "most ambitious" series and "Game of Thrones in space." Then, just a few weeks after Book 4 (Cibola Burn) of the series was published, they learned that Book 3 (Abaddon's Gate) won the prestigious Locus Award for Best Science Fiction. Other books that have won the Locus award include classics of the genre like Foundation's Edge by Isaac Asimov, Doomsday Book and To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis and 3 of the 4 books in the Hyperion cantos by Dan Simmons. Great company! As you can see from my review, Abaddon's Gate is a really good book, but the truth is that Cibola Burn is possibly even better!

Abaddon's Gate is like a roller-coaster, a thrilling ride that ends with an "oh ****!" sequence that completely upends the set of rules we thought the Universe was abiding by, opening up the story to dizzying set of possibilities. Cibola Burn is not as "big" a story as Abaddon's Gate, but it is even more suspenseful (which I did not even think was possible). Cibola Burn is really more like a very good Western. After the events of the previous book (*spoiler alert*), there are now thousands of star systems, with who knows how many habitable planets, for humanity to expand to. So, basically there is a land rush on, and Cibola Burn is set on Ilus, one of the first planets that has been colonized by former Belters (people who were born and raised in space, in the Asteroid Belts). However, a mega-corporation named Royal Charter Energy who gets a charter from the United Nations to explore the planet (which they call New Terra) and its resources (especially it's very import lithium deposits). But by the time the RCE ship gets there, Belter colonists have been there for more than a year and someone plants a bomb and destroys the landing pad, damaging the main shuttle, killing the official UN representative (and most importantly) preventing RCE from getting a secure foothold on the planet.

Because even the fastest ship would take the better part of a year or more to get to the planet (and even signals from Earth take several hours to be transmitted), the humans are on their own trying to settle what is essentially a property dispute in a jurisdiction where the rules are "TBD." This is basically a wild, wild west scenario. So, how will humans in the future advanced civilization deal with an uncivilized situation rife with conflict?

This is the powder keg that Corey has set up as the primary explosive force behind the plot developments. For the first time in the series, the entire book basically deals with problems pertaining to one planetary system. Although there's also a bunch of new characters, the people we have been following for four books: James Holden (captain of Rocinante), his lover (and Rocinante executive officer) Naomi Nagata, pilot Alex Kamal and chief engineer Amos Burton return and we get to learn a lot more about them. My favorite character in the series, Chrisjen Avarasala (the profane grandmother who basically is the most powerful person on Earth), has a too-brief cameo in the Epilogue chapter along with Bobbie Draper, the huge female Marine who is so important in Caliban's War.

In addition to these characters, there are new people in the story who we get point-of-view chapters from: Basia (a Belter colonist on Ilus who is a father of two teenagers a bit over his head), Elvi (a Earther scientist who is sent by RCE to investigate alien life on the planet and finds herself the subject of one of her own experiments) and Havelock (an Earther who is working in the security department on the RCE ship and has appeared in previous books in the series in more limited fashion). Of these my favorite was Elvi (demonstrating once again that the all-male duo that is James Corey can fully realize female characters with the best of them!) However, the most memorable new character is the villainous Adolphus Murtry, the chief of security on the RCE ship and who turns out to be a psychopath).

Amazingly, Holden is sent to Ilus to serve as a United Nations representative to mediate between two groups of people who feel like they can basically justify any action if it leads to their desired result of control over this new planet. Since we know from the first three books in the series that Holden is pretty headstrong himself (and diplomacy is not his strong suit) it should not come as a surprise that the situation on Ilus/New Terra (the warring factions can't even agree what to call it) goes from bad to worse. And then the crazy alien stuff starts happening.

In my opinion, Cibola Burn is the best story in the series so far. It is incredibly suspenseful and exciting. However, in terms of the overall Expanse series there is not much development in answering some of the larger questions of the series (except one very big event that happens towards the end of the book that I will not spoil for you here except to say that it involves the protomolecule from Leviathan Wakes) and that is somewhat disappointing but frankly I was so gripped by the overall story that I absolutely devoured the book (which is not small) in roughly two days of reading.

The only bad thing about finishing this book so quickly is now I have to wait almost an entire year until Book 5 comes out. But I am cheered by the news that the series has been expanded from the original trilogy to nine books. Let's hope the SyFy television series will be as successful!

This is a major, major disapointment. Although starting off fairly strongly, the book loses steam about half way through; it's as if the authors had a fight or got bored and were called away, adding snippets here and there to get the damn thing over with already. Unfortunately, the formulaic and both predictable AND implausible manner in which fhey accomplish this will make you wish the end had come more quickly and less embarrassingly. Interesting characters deserve better. So do fans.
