Leviathan Falls: Expanse, Book 9 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The biggest science fiction series of the decade comes to an incredible conclusion in the ninth and final novel in James S.A. Corey’s Hugo-award winning space opera that inspired the Prime Original series.
Hugo Award Winner for Best Series
The Laconian Empire has fallen, setting the 1,300 solar systems free from the rule of Winston Duarte. But the ancient enemy that killed the gate builders is awake, and the war against our universe has begun again.
In the dead system of Adro, Elvi Okoye leads a desperate scientific mission to understand what the gate builders were and what destroyed them, even if it means compromising herself and the half-alien children who bear the weight of her investigation. Through the wide-flung systems of humanity, Colonel Aliana Tanaka hunts for Duarte’s missing daughter...and the shattered emperor himself. And on the Rocinante, James Holden and his crew struggle to build a future for humanity out of the shards and ruins of all that has come before.
As nearly unimaginable forces prepare to annihilate all human life, Holden and a group of unlikely allies discover a last, desperate chance to unite all of humanity, with the promise of a vast galactic civilization free from wars, factions, lies, and secrets if they win.
But the price of victory may be worse than the cost of defeat.

Glad it's over, especially since the last two books were empty space. Disappointing end to a great series.
I really enjoy the ending and it seems more than fitting for this series, I would like to have a novela that outlines more of what happens at the end of book.

For my taste, I found the book a little heavy on the metaphysical side and a little light on swashbuckling action.
However, despite a touch of predictably, the book is true to the events, relationships and scars of earlier books.
It’s a rare pleasure to finish the final book in such a long running series and feel that it was the right way to end the story. This book achieved that, and more.
The ending whilst not full of unicorns and rainbows suits the series down to the ground and leaves a feeling of everything having slotted into its rightful place. The epilogue is particularly nice.
Messrs Weber and Martin could do worse than look at this as a brilliant example of how to conclusively end a series.
Whilst I bounced off of the time gap between books 6 and 7 this book more than the rest justifies the change to get to this conclusion. Bravo and well done to the 2 authors.
I recently saw a tweet from the authors account where the series is better thought of as 3 duologies and a trilology, and this intrigues me enough to go back to the start.
And now to watch the conclusion of the TV series, which unlike its close cousin GOT has wonderfully evolved into its own thing too.
Well done again to the authors. Five stars for the conclusion 4 stars over all for the series.
I didn't see the end coming, but it made sense and brought things together nicely, and a few hours later I'm still processing it: it doesn't skimp on the emotional side as well as wrapping up the story.
Once it's all sunk in I might well go and read it again!
