Story

Exciting! Different enough from the show...

I absolutely loved the show, the reason I downloaded the books were because of the SyFi show but there is so much more get from the book than the show. I space battles are so much more intense and i have a much better understanding of the differences between Earthers, Martians and Belters. Its the belters that you never forget, you're constantly reminded of the importance of gravity and weight of the science grounding the story.

I am now on the 4th Book and the series is great. I really start to love some of these characters and its easy to become invested. Great writing and performance. Always seek out Mays with this series.

Do yourself a favor and buy from here instead of other sources. DRM free and cheaper.
