Book Review: The Churn (The Expanse #0.2) by James S. A. Corey

The Churn by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 (4 stars)

I've decided that I need to dip back into the universe of The Expanse and decided to start with getting to know a bit of backstory on one of my favourite characters, Amos.

This story gives a glimpse into his life before he had that name and was still Earth-bound in the hell that was Baltimore. I enjoyed reading about Amos here but what really grabbed me was the landscape the authors painted of being stuck on Earth with no good prospects and
being at the mercy of
plenty of crime and opportunists. Scary times and this lasted just long enough. I do like the novella glimpses into other places and times within the main story timeline and have to admit that my favourite look-ins are societal and political.

Recommended for fans of the series.

Before his trip to the stars, before the "Rocinante," Amos Burton was confined to a Baltimore where crime paid you or killed you. Unless the authorities got to you first. Set in the hard-scrabble solar system of "Leviathan Wakes, " "Caliban's War," Abaddon's Gate and the upcoming Cibola Burn, "The Churn "deepens James S. A. Corey's acclaimed Expanse series.
