Cover & Synopsis: “Abaddon’s Gate” by James S.A. Corey

A Dribble of Ink has posted the cover art for the third novel in the Expanse series: Abaddon’s Gate by James S.A. Corey (the writing pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck). This novel follows Leviathan Wakes and Caliban’s War.

Here’s the synopsis:

For generations, the solar system – Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt – was humanity’s great frontier. Until now. The alien artefact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has emerged to build a massive structure outside the orbit of Uranus: a gate that leads into a starless dark.

Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artefact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.

  1. Hm. I guess I’ll keep an eye out for this, but not with any great hype, unfortunately.. Felt like CW fell somewhat flat of the potential LW set up.. It will be interesting to see if the third book follows in the lines of its prequel or preprequel.
