    I’ve previously listened to your Dune podcast (huge Dune fan here), and was overjoyed when I saw that you were also doing The Expanse, which is my second favorite Sci-fi series (Dune being the favorite of course). Tiamat’s wrath is actually my favorite book in the series, in some parts because it reminds me of what I like about Dune, dealing with the deeper questions about society, politics and so on. The main characters have developed so well, and all of the secondary characters are also very well written. I too particularly like Teresa’s story, but also Elvi and Fayez. I keep imagining how good all this is going to be in the TV-series, once they get there (somewhere far down the line). Wish they’d hurry up and give us book 9 already. Looking forward to listening to your podcast then. BTW, the ending song for the podcast is awesome!

    1. Thanks so much for joining us The Dune Saga Podcast. It’s really cool to find out who’s made the journey over. I have to agree with your assessment of The Expanse. I think that’s why I took to it way more then I expected to.
