I haven't read it, but I'm sure it is. It's no great statement to say a novelization is better than the show/movie. Nearly all of them are.
Unless of course we are referring to DS9's pilot which worked better on the screen than it did in the book.
But with the Expanse novelization, when you compare it to the older novelizations like DS9's "Emissary" or Voyager's "Flashback", the "Expanse" was merely the script of the two episodes put together in novel form with very little backstory added, whereas the older novelizations tended too add a lot of back story. So in Enterprise's case I think that it was handled a lot better in the books, whether it be the novelizations or the actual novels printed between 2001 and 2005.
