Auberon: An Expanse Novella by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I REALLY love the subtext in this novella.
It's not only a novel about the straight-laced Laconian government taking over a thoroughly integrated quasi-mob-based world of Auberon and the clash that arises.
It's also a fantastic commentary on America. With the rife corruption throughout all levels of government... not least with high cabinet members profiting on their positions by having billion-dollar deals in the very industry they should have been regulating... this novella lays out the problem of fixing it.
No ideological plan survives first-contact with an ideological enemy. lol
I can't wait to see how this gets folded into the final novel.
