Book: Abaddon's Gate by James S. A. Corey

I wrote posts about the series I'm currently reading, the Expanse Series, a space opera by James S. A. Corey.  The posts were about Leviathan Wakes and Caliban's War.  This one is about the third book, Abaddon's Gate.

Something happens on Venus that is going to change the way the frontier has been defined.  A gate has been discovered, and the race is on to find out what it is, what it does, and where it goes.  Holden and the crew of the Rocinante find themselves in a heap of trouble between trying to get away with their ship and being the target of a revenge plot.  Holden can't seem to get a break.  While trying to keep his ship in the air and his crew safe he finds himself headed to the one place he didn't intend to go-the gate.  So many things happen in this book it's hard to say anything without feeling like I'm giving something away.  We see some return characters and of course meet some new ones.  One of the groups headed to the gate is a ship full of different religious leaders and pastors like Anna.  I liked the character interactions as the story unfolded, some of it was expected and some of it was not.

Really things are starting to get crazy.  As story lines merge, new ones bloom.  I have no idea where things are headed, or how long the series is going to go on but I'm looking forward to the fourth book.  Sorry this is so short, but really I don't want to say too much and give anything away.  You are just going to have to read them for yourself-it's worth it!
