We are not alone. On Ganymede, breadbasket of the outer planets, a Martian marine watches as her platoon is slaughtered by a monstrous supersoldier. On Earth, a high-level politician struggles to prevent interplanetary war from reigniting. And on Venus, an alien protomolecule has overrun the planet, wreaking massive, mysterious changes and threatening to spread out into the solar system. In the vast wilderness of space, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante have been keeping the peace for the Outer Planets Alliance. When they agree to help a scientist search war-torn Ganymede for a missing child, the future of humanity rests on whether a single ship can prevent an alien invasion that may have already begun . . . Caliban's War is a breakneck science fiction adventure following the critically acclaimed Leviathan Wakes.

Another thoroughly enjoyable romp, with some interesting character development and brilliant new characters. However, ultimately (surprisingly) less emotional - I ended up more invested in Miller than I expected last time, and less invested in Bobbie and Avasarala than I expected this time. It is a ...

And a non-stereotypical female main character who has agency to spare. And another non-stereotypical female main character who has nothing in common with the other one. A...
