Review: Babylon's Ashes

Babylon's Ashes (The Expanse, #6)Babylon's Ashes by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series continues to surprise and develop. A mix of exciting action along with introspection about life, its meaning and value, and our role the universe and amongst each other. The characters struggle with forgiveness, anger, justice, revenge, love, and existential dread without these themes ever swallowing the story or overwhelming the reader. The characters continue to grow and develop; their relationships with each other also continue to evolve.

The voices of the characters stay in my head for days after I finish these novels (though not quite as vividly as Miller in Holden's head!). I miss them terribly until I can pick up the next novel.
