La saga da cui è tratta la serie tv The Expanse, in onda sul canale SyFy da Dicembre 2015. Per generazioni, il sistema solare – Marte, la Luna, la fascia degli asteroidi – è stato la grande frontiera dell’umanità, il confine oltre il quale si estendevano mondi sconosciuti e insondabili, fino al giorno in cui un artefatto alieno ha abbandonato la sua orbita di operatività, sotto le nuvole di Venere, ed è apparso nell’orbita di Urano dove ha dato vita a un enorme portale, la via che conduce a un’oscurità senza stelle. Jim Holden e l’equipaggio della Rocinante fanno parte di una spedizione organizzata per raggiungere il misterioso artefatto e svelarne gli arcani. Il loro scopo è comprendere se, per il genere umano, il portale sia una minaccia o una straordinaria opportunità. Non sanno che un’intelligenza superiore ha ordito una trama segreta che ha come obiettivo la distruzione di Holden e di chiunque voglia conoscere ciò che deve rimanere ignoto. Gli uomini della Rocinante non immaginano che il pericolo peggiore è più prossimo a loro di quanto non sembri... Il nuovo appassionante capitolo di una serie che sta cambiando la storia della fantascienza, un viaggio verso il futuro, come non lo avevamo mai immaginato.

Mille nuovi mondi sono adesso raggiungibili. Il più grande esodo della storia del genere umano sta per iniziare. Mentre orde di coloni partono alla volta dei nuovi orizzonti, le vecchie strutture di potere del sistema solare sono prossime a crollare. Intere flotte scompaiono, i sistemi di difesa sono inermi di fronte alla forza degli eserciti di coloro che bramano il potere, il terrore manda a segno attacchi prima d’ora impensabili, che mettono in ginocchio i pianeti interni. È come se gli uomini dovessero scontare la colpa di essersi spinti oltre l’immaginabile, al di là delle proprie possibilità, prendendo possesso del destino dell’universo. James Holden e l’equipaggio della Rocinante dovranno lottare per sopravvivere in un mondo in cui l’ordine è mantenuto con la forza e la legge è stabilita dalla violenza. La loro missione è fare ritorno alla casa che hanno lasciato e ripercorrere a ritroso la via che li ha condotti nella nuova era, in un futuro che non avrebbero mai immaginato. Il quinto romanzo di una grandiosa space opera, un viaggio entusiasmante verso la nuova frontiera della fantascienza.

“Fans of Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers will eat this up.” --Stephen King For fans of THE MARTIAN, an extraordinary new thriller of the future from #1 New York Times–bestselling and Pulitzer Prize–winning author John Sandford and internationally known photo-artist and science fiction aficionado Ctein. Over the course of thirty-seven books, John Sandford has proven time and again his unmatchable talents for electrifying plots, rich characters, sly wit, and razor-sharp dialogue. Now, in collaboration with Ctein, he proves it all once more, in a stunning new thriller, a story as audacious as it is deeply satisfying. The year is 2066. A Caltech intern inadvertently notices an anomaly from a space telescope—something is approaching Saturn, and decelerating. Space objects don’t decelerate. Spaceships do. A flurry of top-level government meetings produces the inescapable conclusion: Whatever built that ship is at least one hundred years ahead in hard and soft technology, and whoever can get their hands on it exclusively and bring it back will have an advantage so large, no other nation can compete. A conclusion the Chinese definitely agree with when they find out. The race is on, and an remarkable adventure begins—an epic tale of courage, treachery, resourcefulness, secrets, surprises, and astonishing human and technological discovery, as the members of a hastily thrown-together crew find their strength and wits tested against adversaries both of this earth and beyond. What happens is nothing like you expect—and everything you could want from one of the world’s greatest masters of suspense. From the Hardcover edition.

The explosive fourth novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series on Syfy! ENTER A NEW FRONTIER. "An empty apartment, a missing family, that's creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave." The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire. Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth. James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail. And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed it.
