Masterfully Compact Sci Fi

Amazingly compact story of loss and recovery with two of the best characters from the Expanse universe. Metaphor blended in throughout the entire work results in a one-of-a-kind, satisfying, Belter cocktail.

Is kind of unnecessaryIs kind of unnecessary

I felt like you got most of the broad points from the back story in the books this didn't feel like it really needed to be done.

It isn't bad but unless you're a die hard fan you could skip this one.

filling in the gaps

Boy I'm sooooooo happy 😊 to finally learn the fate of the Butcher. All throughout the Expanse the adventures of the Butcher are only briefly touched upon. It is nice to finally have the FULL STORY!!!!
