Samenvatting





KNOW YOUR ENEMY - OR BE DEFEATED

AD 2204
An alien shipwreck is discovered at the limits of human expansion, so Security Director Feriton Kayne selects a team to investigate. The ship's sinister cargonot only raises bewildering questions, but could also foreshadow humanity's extinction. Back on Earth, we can make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely, so humanity seems invulnerable. We therefore welcomed the Olyix when they contacted us. They needed fuel for their pilgrimage across the galaxy, offering their technology in exchange. But were the Olyix a blessing or a curse?

THE FAR FUTURE
any lightyears from Earth, Dellian and his clan of genetically engineered soldiers are raised with one goal: they must destroy their ancient adversary, who caused mankind to flee across the galaxy. Otherwise, we'll be wiped out - and we're running out of time.

'Loud, proud and beyond epic'
Ian McDonald
'An intoxicating combination . . . Science fiction is in excellent hands'
Justina Robson
'Space-opera intrigue . . . makes the sequel a matter of urgency'
Ken MacLeod
'A thoroughly enjoyable read'
Neal Asher

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.
Salvation is the first title in a stunning science fiction trilogy, The Salvation Sequence, by Peter F. Hamilton

Recensie(s)

A vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper... the journey grips as hard as the reveal * Daily Mail * 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 * How far 'space opera' has gone! * Wall Street Journal * Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly Hamilton's best book to date -- SFX Magazine, 5 stars A startlingly fresh, vigorous and original cosmic saga. Highly enjoyable! -- Stephen Baxter 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 Hamilton handles massive ideas with enviable ease -- Guardian A thoroughly enjoyable read -- Neal Asher The owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction -- Ken Follett Peter takes the word 'epic', then retools and turbocharges it. He is the go-to guy for spectacular science fiction -- Michael Cobley 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 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 Salvation is a space-opera intrigue with a cold shock of an ending that makes the sequel a matter of urgency -- Ken MacLeod 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 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
