Tiamat’s Wrath: Thirteen hundred gates opened around the galaxy to solar systems.
But the mysteries and threats grow deeper as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins.
In the dead systems where gates lead to more strange things than alien planets,
Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that occurred before the first human beings existed,
and to find weapons at the edge of the imaginable to fight a war against forces. But it may be higher than she can pay the price of that knowledge.
Teresa Duarte is preparing to take on the burden of the godlike ambition of her father at the heart of the empire.
The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are just two of the dangers in an intriguing thick palace,
but Teresa has her own mind and secrets even the emperor’s father doesn’t guess.
And the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against the authoritarian regime of Duarte throughout the wide human empire.
Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under the eternal rule of Laconia— and with it a battle that humanity can only lose— seems increasingly certain.
Because courage and ambition will not be enough against the terror between worlds
