May Books 2) Leviathan Wakes, by James S.A. Corey

It's always good to see a solid work of space opera with, y'know, actual spaceships on the Hugo shortlist, and Leviathan Wakes scratches that itch this year. It's a jolly good tale of political intrigue in the asteroid belt, with the two main characters an over-honest spaceship captain and a burntout detective from Ceres, getting involved in a complex plot of Big Business and alien biology causing interplanetary war. Not exactly groundbreaking but very good of its type.
