Description

The seventh book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Persepolis Rising finds an old enemy returning home with more power and technology than anyone thought possible, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante tries to rally forces against the new invasion. Now a Prime Original series.

An old enemy returns.

In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace.

In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it.

New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient patterns of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity — and of the Rocinante — unexpectedly and forever...

Persepolis Rising is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the bestselling Babylon's Ashes.

        Leading lights in the sf/fantasy community, Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck joined forces under the pen name Corey to write the New York Times best-selling "Expanse" series, now a top television series on Syfy. The series' sales escalate from volume to volume (over 650,000 copies are out there somewhere), which explains the 100,000--copy first printing for this seventh volume.

        Starred review from November 20, 2017
        In the thrilling seventh chapter of Corey’s acclaimed (and Syfy-adapted) Expanse space opera series, an ambitious colony world with access to powerful alien technology threatens the ring gates that connect 1,300 human colonies to the Sol system. The Transport Union, led by ruthless President Drummer, wields its control of the ring gates—built by mysterious alien “protomolecules”—with arrogant authority. Then an advanced protomolocule-designed warship from the upstart Laconian empire takes over Medina Station, the hub of the ring network. The aging gunship Rocinante, captained by legendary James Holden and his doughty crew, is once again needed to help the Transport Union defend itself, but loyalties are tested as Rocinante’s crew must decide how far to trust Drummer and her agents. Meanwhile, newly minted Laconian captain Santiago Singh struggles to reconcile his own idealism and military discipline with his new role as governor of Medina Station and its rebellious population, even as a second advanced warship is sent ahead to threaten the Earth-Mars Coalition’s hard-won planets. Corey’s tense, tightly plotted story is stuffed to the brim with intrigue, action, awesome alien tech, multidimensional characters, and provocative ideas.
