Its about damn time...

Been waiting for them to come out with a all in one comp of all the expanse novellas, and here it is. Great value credit wise compared to having to individually get one by one and that new novella at the end was just what i needed to cleanse my palette of the perverbial taste of the despare that this series ending brought on. Its a nice lil bonus to send us off with that im greatful for. Awesome work as always. I can't wait to see what they dream up next!

Genius on display

Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham are two of the best writers of our time. Why? Because they write stories that are timeless and classic. There’s an awful lot of mediocre dreck out there but the expanse series isn’t it. Great literature moves us and provides us with insight into what it means to be human. I’ve never ceased to be amazed at the ability of these two to create characters that you instantly care about. Their gift for character development is unsurpassed. The understanding of human relationships and interaction is profound almost to the point of leaving you wondering that these guys can’t possibly have anything wrong in their lives given their complete understanding of human nature and emotions. The thing I always tell people about the Expanse is that if humanity ever makes it to the point of planetary colonization it’ll be similar to this story. This series is a very plausible model of how that occurs. Amazing writing as usual. Jefferson Mays delivers the prose with his usual uncanny brilliance. Having him as narrator for this series is one of the best casting decisions ever. Whomever was responsible for that should get a promotion or whatever professional kudos get handed out for that sort of decision making ability. Anyway great series of side stories within the expanse universe. I just found myself wanting to find out more about how the two children ended up getting captured by Dr. Cortazza.

The final loose end of The Expanse tied up.

Jefferson Mays narrates the final chapter and loose end that I think a lot of The Expanse readers were curious about and does an excellent job doing so. From a story point of view, like the closing of Leviathan Falls, the ending is not what some might expect, but it's the "right" way to end.

Really Great Read

I thought I would get bored with this because of having listened to the whole "The Expanse" series. WOW was I wrong. Every single story was so good that I went back and listened twice. All of them of course, bringing back the full impact of the Expanse series. Would really recommend for anyone that enjoyed the Expanse series. Hope these guys keep coming up with stories like these!

What a blast.

I didn’t read/listen these till after I read a series. Amazing. It was a nice way to cap off the series for me.

YASSSSSS

I've been desperate to know what happened to Naomi's son, Filip, ever since we saw him ditch dear old dad. I had already listened to all the other novellas, but now it's nice to have them all together. My only wish is that there was an Chrisy Avasarala short story.

An excellent compliment to the Expanse story

This collection of ancillary stories to the Expanse universe provides much needed context to the characters and storylines of the Expanse series.

A note on Jefferson Mays. When I first listened to a sample of Leviathan Wakes, my first thought was “meh”. I was wrong. As I listened to the series (after already having read the books, his talent was obvious. He is the voice of that universe.
