Publisher's Summary

A novella set in the hard-scrabble world of James S. A. Corey's New York Times best-selling Expanse series, Gods of Risk tells the story of Bobbie Draper following the events of Caliban's War.

Hugo Award Winner for Best Series

As tension between Mars and Earth mounts, and terrorism plagues the Martian city of Londres Nova, 16-year-old David Draper is fighting his own lonely war. A gifted chemist vying for a place at the university, David leads a secret life as a manufacturer for a ruthless drug dealer. When his friend Leelee goes missing, leaving signs of the dealer's involvement, David takes it upon himself to save her. But first he must shake his aunt Bobbie Draper, an ex-Marine who has been set adrift in her own life after a mysterious series of events nobody is talking about.

Meh

This story has almost nothing to do with the overall plot arch of the series. It also only involves Bobby Draper marginally. Unless you enjoy stories about male teenage angst, skip this one.

Meh indeed (other reviews correct)

Idk if I noticed a change in Bobby's accident, but otherwise I think the other reviews are mostly correct. Very different story from the TV show here, and while I think it's a relatively good character driven story, really doesn't add much to the series other than adding to Martian culture (but that's just a minor part of the story). Mostly just teen angst + Breaking Bad.

Someone forgot Bobbie’s accent

The only thing I did not like in this audiobook was Jefferson Mayes performance of Bobbie Draper. In Caliban’s War his performance of Bobbie had a healthy amount of southern drawl to her accent. In this performance there is barely a hint and it really breaks the fantasy setting.
