Salvation - The Salvation Sequence (Hardback)Peter F. Hamilton (author)
- Not available
Salvation is the first title in a stunning science fiction trilogy, the Salvation Sequence, by Peter F. Hamilton.
Know your enemy - or be defeated.
An alien shipwreck is discovered on a planet at the very limits of human expansion - so Security Director Feriton Kayne selects a team to investigate. The ship's sinister cargo not only raises bewildering questions, but could also foreshadow humanity's extinction. It will be up to the team to bring back answers, and the consequences of this voyage will change everything.
Back on Earth, we can now make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely, so humanity seems invulnerable. We therefore welcomed the Olyix to Earth when they contacted us. They needed fuel for their pilgrimage across the galaxy - and in exchange they helped us advance our technology. But were the Olyix a blessing or a curse?
THE FAR FUTURE
Many lightyears from Earth, Dellian and his clan of genetically engineered soldiers are raised with one goal. They must confront and destroy their ancient adversary. The enemy caused mankind to flee across the galaxy and they hunt us still. If they aren't stopped, we will be wiped out - and we're running out of time.

How far 'space opera' has gone! * Wall Street Journal *
Peter F. Hamilton just keeps getting better and better with each book, more assured and more craftsmanly adroit, and more inventive . . . In short, Hamilton is juggling chainsaws while simultaneously doing needlepoint over a shark tank. It's a virtuoso treat, and I for one can hardly wait for Salvation Lost * Locus *
A vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper... the journey grips as hard as the reveal * Daily Mail *
