Local authors discuss and sign their latest space opera novel Tiamat's Wrath: The Expanse Book 8.
LOCAL FANTASY/SPACE OPERA WRITERS VISIT PAGE ONE 4:00 PM SATURDAY, MARCH 30
James S.A. Corey - best-selling local authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck under a pseudonym - will be at Page One Books 4:00 pm Saturday, March 30, to talk about and sign their latest space opera novel, "Tiamat's Wrath: The Expanse Book 8." A major TV series based on the "Expanse" novels finished its third season on the SyFy Channel in 2018, and its fourth season will premiere on Amazon Prime Video this year.
The book is described as such: "The eighth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, 'Tiamat's Wrath' finds the crew of the Rocinante fighting an underground war against a nearly invulnerable authoritarian empire, with James Holden a prisoner of the enemy. Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper. In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay. At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn't guess..."
