The novels of Iain M. Banks have forever changed the face of modern science fiction. His Culture books combine breathtaking imagination with exceptional storytelling, and have secured his reputation as one of the most extraordinary and influential writers in the genre.

'Banks is a phenomenon' William Gibson

It was one of the less glorious incidents of a long-ago war.

It led to atrocities on an extraordinary scale. To the destruction of two suns and the billions of lives they supported.

Now, eight hundred years later, the light from the first of those doomed stars has reached the Culture Orbital, Masaq', bathing its ­fifty billion inhabitants in the rays of their society's ancient mistake.

Amongst them is Major Quilan, sent on a mission so secret that not even he knows what it is, and determined to exact his revenge against the Culture at any cost.

Praise for the Culture series:

'Epic in scope, ambitious in its ideas and absorbing in its execution' Independent on Sunday

MEDIA REVIEWS

Banks is a phenomenon: the wildly successful, fearlessly creative author of brilliant and disturbing non-genre novels, he's equally at home writing pure science fiction of a perculiarly gnarly energy and elegance - William Gibson

There is now no British SF writer to whose work I look forward with greater keenness - THE TIMES

Poetic, humourous, baffling, terrifying, sexy - the books of Iain M. Banks are all these things and more - NME

“Not my favourite in the series but still good”

This was a little different to the other novels in this series, the ones that I've read anyway, as it was more about what has happened that what is actually happening. I really enjoyed the concept of the... More

“Feels like a spiritual successor to the first Culture book, Consider Phlebas”

In the fallout of the Idiran War, in which one side destroyed 2 suns, killing billions, the light of those explosions is now reaching the Orbital of Masaq. It feels like a spiritual successor to the first Culture... More
