Four-star review for Persepolis Rising by James S.A. Corey

I’m still enjoying this series after seven books and a couple of the novellas, but this reads like the beginning of the second half or third third of the story (which it is in a way), as a set-up for what’s to come. The resistance to the Laconian invasion through the Sol gate, including everything that happens on Medina, are interesting in themselves, though, and we get to see a lot of our favorite characters including Avasarala even though it’s been years since the last book. Too much of the book was spent on the viewpoints of the Laconian characters, although I understand why this was done. There were a few sad moments too. Still, I look forward to books 8 and 9 and the (possible) appearance of whatever defeated the architects of the protomolecule.
