Humanity has colonized the solar system—Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt and beyond. But that’s just the beginning. New settlers are heading out in search of their own alien worlds in this epic new space opera from James S.A. Corey, the pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. The inhabitants of these newly opened frontiers face terrorists from Earth who want to exploit the new colonies–and anarchists from the Belt who wish to destroy them. As tensions rise, it falls on one troubled ship and her crew to search for answers among a slew of dead-end leads.
The solar system – Mars, the Moon and the Asteroid Belt – has been colonized by humanity. Yet the stars are still out of our reach. Jim Holden is XO of an ice miner making runs from Saturn’s rings to the Belt. When he and his crew stumble upon a derelict ship, they find themselves possessing a secret for which someone will kill.
Leviathan Wakes is a novel of epic scope and detail, an adventure set in a future where humanity has colonized the solar system. At its core are Holden and Miller, men who see murder as business as usual, their lives on the line and their moral compasses spinning. As they solve the riddle of the Scopuli, they begin to unravel the greatest conspiracy in human history.
The solar system. For centuries, it’s been humanity’s back yard–a place we settled but never truly explored. Now, the discovery of an alien artifact at the edge of our solar system may be able to change everything.
About Leviathan Wakes Book
Humanity has colonized the solar system—Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt and beyond—but the stars are still out of our reach.
Jim Holden is XO of an ice miner making runs from the rings of Saturn to the mining stations of the Belt. When he and his crew stumble upon a derelict ship, the Scopuli, they find themselves possessing a secret they never wanted. A secret that someone is willing to kill for—and kill on a scale unfathomable to Jim and his crew. War is brewing in the system unless he can find out who left the ship and why.
Detective Miller is looking for a girl. One girl in a system of billions, but her parents have money and money talks. When the trail leads him to the Scopuli and rebel sympathizer Holden, he realizes that this girl may be the key to everything.
Holden and Miller must thread the needle between the Earth government, the Outer Planet revolutionaries, and secretive corporations—and the odds are against them. But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the universe’s fate.
