  1. Congrats! Now I need to get back to my re-read of Leviathan Wakes.

  2. So, my copy of Caliban’s War, ordered through Amazon, has been marked ‘shipped’. Expected to arrive Friday.

    Guess they released early, like they did for King’s Blood.

  3. I just finished Leviathan wakes and enjoyed it. I will be reading the sequel. So is Juliette Mao racially asian? I was trying to think who I would cast in the various roles and I was not sure. Great work!

  4. Thanks so much for the responses. That does help. As with any good book I suppose we have images in our minds as we read about what the characters look like, and it can be jarring when we are suddenly shown a tangible example of what the character is “suppose” to look like, whether through some adaptation like a movie or tv show, or even through an illustration. But, its sure fun to speculate and talk with other readers about their mental ideas for various characters ! And its definitely fun to play the theoretical casting game, I have been arguing with my buddies about casting the character of Travis Mcgee, of the John D Macdonald novels, for years. Julie sounds about how I was picturing her, perhaps a bit like a young Maggie Q from Nikita, but thanks for the clarification!

    By the way, did you guys happen to notice some similarities in plot with Prometheus and Leviathan wakes.? Creepy black genetically modifying goo!

  5. Ty, why are all your posts “featured” and Daniels are just plain old “not”?

  6. I was on FB and saw a post that said if I liked Game of Thrones, I would like Dragon’s Path. It said to ‘like” the page for a chance at getting both books FREE!…. I had never done anything like that, and didn’t really believe it would work…. BUT…the UPS guy showed up last night and I got the books! Super excited about reading them, just finished the 1st chapter of Dragon’s Path and I totally dig it!! Thanks for the FB giveaway!!

  7. I got my copy of Caliban’s War today. Nice surprise. I was shopping around at B&N, and to my surprise it was on the shelf. I picked it up and cant wait to enjoy! I was not expecting it for another 7-10 days. I also picked up Hunter’s Run and Shadow and Betrayal, I guess its the first two books of The Long Price Quartet. I figured I would give them a try. I hope Julie and Miller return in Caliban’s War, if only briefly and even if its just in alien form or something, I like them. Thanks for all your hard work, and I look forward to more. Consider me a fan.

    So do you guys have mental images in your head as your write as to what the characters look like to you? Do you picture celebrities or people you might know? Just curious about the process!

  8. I finished reading Caliban’s War last night. Here is my review:

    “FUCKING BRILLIANT” ~ Josh Jones

    So when can we expect the next Expanse, Dagger and Coin, and Black Sun’s Daughter to come out?

    I have yet to be disappointed! Keep up the great work. :D
