Auberon: An Expanse NovellaAuberon: 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.
