An exciting new tv show will debut December 14th on the Syfy channel. This series, The Expanse, is based on one of the best new science fiction series in recent years. Starting with Leviathan Wakes, the coauthors (using a pen name) have created a future world in which interplanetary conflict puts mankind on the verge of war. What few people know, yet, is an alien threat so horrific it paralyzes people with panic. Normal people, anyway.
The Expanse books cross genres with political intrigue, horror, science fiction, mystery, some romance and humor. Currently at six books, the book series will ultimately encompass eleven novels and five novellas plus short stories. The TV show has two seasons completed covering the first two novels.
The trailers look awesome, and the actors chosen look like a good fit to their characters. Even though the Expanse solar system is a totally different place, I think they can make the show believable and engaging. Prepare for the conflict between Mars and Earth. Between Mars and the Outer Planets. Between everybody and something else. Who has allowed it in? Is it too late for us all? Don’t miss it—not the books, not the show. ~ Tessa November 2015 5 out of 5 stars
