~FREE PDF ♲ Strange Dogs ☧ Like many before them, Cara and her family ventured through the gates as scientists and researchers, driven to carve out a new life and uncover the endless possibilities of the unexplored alien worlds now within reachBut soon the soldiers followed and under this new order Cara makes a discovery that will change everything This was an independent short story in the The Expanse universe which is to say that the characters are completely unknown to us.We re on one of the planets the rings have opened up to and are following a family the parents being two scientists One of their children was born slightly before they came here, the other on the planet even They were supposed to live on said planet for 5 years but then the events from book 6 happen and they are stranded.Naturally, the flora and fauna are quite d This was an independent short story in the The Expanse universe which is to say that the characters are completely unknown to us.We re on one of the planets the rings have opened up to and are following a family the parents being two scientists One of their children was born slightly before they came here, the other on the planet even They were supposed to live on said planet for 5 years but then the events from book 6 happen and they are stranded.Naturally, the flora and fauna are quite different from what they are used to on Earth and after what the Free Navy did, they are also cut off from supplies and replacement parts so their situation is critical.The story started a bit like Jurassic Park, then reminded me of Annihilation what with the strange and eerie eco system and the subliminal sense of danger it causes, before it became similar to Pet Sematary And all of it in space sort of lol The imagery of the planet and the small colony on it as well as the living conditions caused by the war in Sol with the soldiers subsequently being sent to the planet was very strong The atmosphere in this world was almost oppressive but certainly very dark Though I did like the bit with the girl in the wild and all the animals living on this strange planet best.I think this is my favourite of the short stories so far and I kinda hope that the discovery here will become relevant in future novels of the series The latest of the Expanse novellas which have mostly been good standalone stories while acting as useful backgrounders for upcoming novels.The story is set on Laconia, the colony that the renegade Martian Admiral Duarte has established as his power base with the Sol system in chaos see An interesting story that I m sure isn t necessary to the flow of the main series, but I really did enjoy it. Excellent story that is pretty much a standalone, though ties into two minor characters in the main series Intensely creepy with a strong Pet Sematary vibe Not for the faint of heart Excellent story that is pretty much a standalone, though ties into two minor characters in the main series Intensely creepy with a strong Pet Sematary vibe Not for the faint of heart Strange dogs , IMHO, is probably the best Expanse novella of them all I really enjoyed great worldbuilding, pace and the story itself were really good, too But what impressed me the most is the fact the James Corey managed to write a mid series novella, which can be read as a stand alone by anyone It doesn t matter if you read every single one book or novella of the series, or you re a newcomer the story will be perfectly clear and won t require reading anything else to understand what Strange dogs , IMHO, is probably the best Expanse novella of them all I really enjoyed great worldbuilding, pace and the story itself were really good, too But what impressed me the most is the fact the James Corey managed to write a mid series novella, which can be read as a stand alone by anyone It doesn t matter if you read every single one book or novella of the series, or you re a newcomer the story will be perfectly clear and won t require reading anything else to understand what is going on A pity that this novella is so short and ends at the most interesting point 2.5 sI liked where the story ended up because it opens a lot of possibilities for the main series but my god that was slow I also did buy the parents reactions three different times. Review of the audiobook narrated by Jefferson Mays.What a great novella The best of the Expanse short fiction for sure I didn t want it to end and was wondering why they didn t save this storyline for one of the main books having since read Persepolis Rising, this book works as a great lead in and introduction to Laconia.Final verdict 5 star story, 5 star narration, 5 stars overall Life in the colonies meets a ghost story Or rather, a Pet Sematary story What better use for the strange alien techs can we devise All said, this short novella, perhaps novelette, paves the road for the strange, strange universe to come Not too bad Slow because it IS a ghost story, but good for all that Woof Or, I should say, chitter At the recommendation of friends, I picked this Expanse novella before diving properly into the latest novel of the series As always, they were right This ghost story is set on Laconia at the very beginning of its colonisation and follows a young girl Cara s narration is fascinating and, due to her age and perception, has an aspect of wonder that in the hand of an adult would have been horror Brilliant
