Abaddon’s Gate, p. 174: Speechless With the Thrill of It All

Just so you know, self has yet to encounter an Abaddon in this installment.

And if you were waiting to meet a Caliban in Book # 2 of The Expanse, self is very sorry for you, because that installment was, like Book # 1, around 600 pages.

Anyhoo, why worry with who or what or why Abaddon is. The only thing you need to know is that Jim Holden is still the Captain of the Rocinante in Abaddon’s Gate, and with Alex (the best navigator and pilot in the entire solar system) still piloting the ship, high jinks of course ensue.


p. 174:

  • Holden sent the nav package to Alex, half expecting him to refuse. Hoping. Instead, the Roci accelerated for an endless twenty-seven minutes, followed by a nauseating zero-g spin that lasted less than four seconds, and a deceleration burn that lasted four and a half minutes and knocked every single person on the ship unconscious.
