‘Leviathan Wakes’ by James S. A. Corey

‘Space Game Of Thrones’
Score: 4/5

James S. A. Corey
£8.99

Much of this book feels like Game of Thrones. I didn’t realise when reading it just why though. It was only when I finished reading the book I found out that the author is a pen name for two writers, and one of the writers is (or was) George R. R. Martin’s assistant. When I discovered that, I noticed even more similarities. Even the pen name James S. A. Corey shares the form of George R. R. Martin – first name, two initials, then a surname that’s also a first name.

I may be reading too much into all this.

Anyway, it’s an interesting romp of a space opera with hints of more to come. And as ever I take issue with some of the space physics and battle stuff, but it’s not as bad as many science fiction books.

Looks to be an interesting series that I’ll be following for a while.
