User reviews about this book
as a lone book in the series it was okay. It added more to the overall series than be a great individual novel.
Best sci fi series!
This series just doesn't ever let me down. Great reads every one of them.
The Expanse Saga Continues Beyond the Gates
In "Cibola Burn" we see the first expansion of humanity beyond the solar system, and of course this does not go smoothy. The rival factions end up taking their conflicts with them to New Terra, a world with long-dead alien ruins, as well as the first alien biosphere humanity has encountered. When things go south, the governments of the solar system send James Holden and his crew to mediate a peace between the unauthorized outer planets colonist and the UN chartered corporate mission. But there are more problems in store than either faction has anticipated. Will the humans set aside their differences to deal with these new threats?
I think I enjoyed "Cibola Burn" a bit more than the previous novel, "Abbadon's Gate." In "Cibola Burn" we get an entirely new setting, groups of characters, and new conflicts. We get to see a bit of the ancient alien technology. The crew of the Roci are by now fully developed characters, and their interactions are well defined. They have become almost like old friends to the reader of the series. A worthwhile read!
I LOVE this series. Love it. But the ending of this one was terrible. Less like a cliffhanger and more like a brick wall -- almost like the last few chapters are missing. The others ended neatly but with some untied ends. This one just ended. Unsatisfactorily. I still love the series, love the characters, loved the backstories in this one. Excellent book, just sad about the ending. It is going to be hard waiting for the next one! Hurry up and write it!!! I'm dying, here!!!
Weakened characters making bad decisions
This is the third book in the series I have read, and by far the worst. I have skipped so many pages because I could not bear to read the weakness of the characters. This book is trying to be politically correct and failing its readers. In the other books the characters would have blasted the bad guys and asked questions later. In this sad story everyone is given another chance, giving the bad guys the upper hand. I hope the next read is better.
Lets keep this concise: Corey's universe and writing continue to evolve and excel. I gobbled this tasty treat down in a few days.
I have never read a book where the characters get into so much trouble! I couldn't put this book down!
Read it in two sittings. The series is great and keeps improving with each book. Can’t wait for the next one!

Huge fan of the first three books, but it had been at least a year since I last had read Book: 3. I don't know how they do it, probably it has to do with the new POV's but the beginning gets you caught up to speed with everything without feeling clunky.
After that, I just inhaled this book. I read it ravenously and loved every minute.
Great book, great series.

I can't wait; I've read the other main installments in the series and I am highly anticipating to see what's beyond the gates
