[Read by Erik Davies]

The fourth book in James S. A. Corey's exciting 'Expanse' series

The gates have opened the way to thousands of habitable planets, and the land rush has begun. Settlers stream out from humanity's home planets in a vast, poorly controlled flood, landing on a new world. Among them are the Rocinante, haunted by the vast, posthuman network of the protomolecule as they investigate what destroyed the great intergalactic society that built the gates and the protomolecule.

But Holden and his crew must also contend with the growing tensions between the settlers and the company that owns the official claim to the planet. Both sides will stop at nothing to defend what's theirs, but soon a terrible disease strikes, and only Holden - with help from the ghostly Detective Miller - can find the cure.

About the Author:

James S. A. Corey is the pen name of fantasy author Daniel Abraham, author of the critically acclaimed Long Price Quartet, and writer Ty Franck. They both live in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Review:

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

''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 (starred review) on Cibola Burn

''It's been too long since we've had a really kickass space opera. LEVIATHAN WAKES (Book 1 of the Expanse series) 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 . . .'' --George R.R. Martin on Leviathan Wakes

''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 (Book 2 of the Expanse series) and Leviathan Wakes(Book 1 of the Expanse series)] - - 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 (Book 3 of the Expanse series)

''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

''Corey's splendid fourth 'Expanse' novel (Cibola Burn)blends adventure with uncommon decency. Even as hostile biochemistries vie with slumbering war machines for a chance to exterminate squabbling people, a spark of humor and hope suggests that despite ourselves, we might find a way to prevail.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
