Waiting On Wednesday - Abaddon's Gate by James S.A. Corey

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Abaddon's Gate by James S.A. Corey
June 4, 2013 (Orbit)

For generations, the solar system -- Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt -- was humanity's great frontier. Until now. The alien artifact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has appeared in Uranus's orbit, where it has built a massive gate that leads to a starless dark.

Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artifact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.


This is another of those series reads that I plan to catch up on this year, which means I've got a lot of Daniel Abraham waiting on the shelf. It's just a matter of whether I dive into this series or the The Dagger and The Coin, although I'm leaning towards this first, since I'm anxious to get a little sci-fi into my reading pile.
