Just finished Babylon's Ashes, the latest installment in James S. A. Corey's Expanse series. I consumed the first five books in the series over the course of a week at the end of October/beginning of November, so there was no way I was going to miss this one—even if I had to wait until after Christmas to make sure that I didn't buy something I was also getting as a gift.
No spoilers here; I'll just say that I loved the book, taking less than a day to read it. All your favorites are back, along with a few surprises, and Avasarala comes up with some choice new profanities. Definitely recommended, even in hardcover (after reading the first five books in digital format, I decided I could commit to hardcover from this point on in the series).
