Know your enemy - or be defeated

AD 2204
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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Peter Hamilton knows how to build a world, and he's one of the best in the field at imagining complex societies, as displayed to magnificent effect in Salvation. Just as importantly, though, he knows how to populate his future environments with real-seeming people whose lives extend beyond the page. Salvation is a twisty and hugely satisfying SF thriller that opens a portal on a new and exciting series -- Alastair Reynolds
Explosions! Assassins! Enigmatic aliens, spaceships and jump doors. Conspiracies and ancient mysteries - it's all here. Accept no substitutes, this is the real deal. You need Salvation, my friend. Everyone needs salvation -- Ian McDonald
Salvation is a space-opera intrigue with a cold shock of an ending that makes the sequel a matter of urgency -- Ken MacLeod
The classic Hamilton cocktail of techno-thriller, far-future vision and action adventure shaken to an intoxicating combination. A promising start to an ambitious new series. Science Fiction is in excellent hands -- Justina Robson
No one offers action-packed, meticulous, suspenseful and consistent hi-tech futures better than Peter Hamilton, and Salvation cranks all of that up five notches -- David Brin
Peter takes the word 'epic', then retools and turbocharges it. He is the go-to guy for spectacular science fiction -- Michael Cobley
The owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction -- Ken Follett
A thoroughly enjoyable read -- Neal Asher
Hamilton handles massive ideas with enviable ease -- Guardian
Hugely impressive. We've said it before but let's say it again: nobody does BIG SF quite like Hamilton -- SFX on Peter's books
A startlingly fresh, vigorous and original cosmic saga. Highly enjoyable! -- Stephen Baxter
Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly Hamilton's best book to date -- SFX Magazine, 5 stars
