Despite my lifelong love of sci-fic and fantasy, it’s rare I find a show or series I adore to the point of obsession. The Expanse, however, is one of the exceptions. This show (and the book series it’s based on) is incredible, and here are five solid reasons you should have it in your life ASAP.
1.It’s based on ACTUAL SCIENCE.
2. It’s eerily timely in pretty much every sociopolitical sense.
3. If you watch, you’ll pretty immediately know why Naomi, Bobbi, Chrisjen, Drummer, Julie, and Anna are such a fantastic bunch of women to follow through a universe.
4.Well, Amos isn’t nicknamed #MurderSnuggles for nothing, guys.
5. Steven Strait and his guaranteed lack of clothing at least once per season.
After a lifelong obsession with books, Erica Cameron spent her college years getting credit for reading and learning how to make stories of her own. Erica graduated with a double major in psychology and creative writing from Florida State University. She’s worked as a dance instructor, research assistant, pointe shoe fitter, pizza delivery girl, editorial assistant at a yachting magazine, bookseller, tutoring coordinator, and English literature teacher at a residential rehabilitation center for teens. Now, she has written several series for young adults and is an advocate for asexuality and emotional abuse awareness. She currently lives in North Florida. Her next novel, PAX NOVIS, is out now.
Cira Antares is deeply loyal to two things: Pax Novis—her mother’s ship that transports supplies across war-torn star systems—and her personal mission to save war orphans. But hiding them as stowaways on the ship is illegal, and if any of them were found, not even her mother could protect Cira from the consequences.
She has successfully kept her secret…until supplies start to go missing. Food. Clothing. Tools. All signs point to her stowaways, but they wouldn’t do anything to risk exposing themselves—or her. Especially not Riston, the oldest of the group and someone Cira has grown close to. Someone she might even be falling in love with…
And petty thefts are only the beginning—whole ships are disappearing now.
Not caught in a firefight. Not destroyed by another planet. Vanishing. Without a trace.
And Pax Novis is next.
