Salvation, A Novel., Peter F Hamilton - (electronic bk)

Summary
Humanity's complex relationship with technology spirals out of control in this first book of an all-new series from "the owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction" (Ken Follett)."How far 'space opera' has come! The Old Masters of sci-fi would admire the scope and sweep of Salvation."—The Wall Street Journal In the year 2204, humanity is expanding into the wider galaxy in leaps and bounds. Cutting-edge technology of linked jump gates has rendered most forms of transportation—including starships—virtually obsolete. Every place on Earth, every distant planet humankind has settled, is now merely a step away from any other. All seems wonderful—until a crashed alien spaceship of unknown origin is found on a newly located world eighty-nine light-years from Earth, carrying a cargo as strange as it is horrifying. To assess the potential of the threat, a high-powered team is dispatched to investigate. But one of them may not be all they seem. . . . Bursting with tension and big ideas, Peter F. Hamilton's Salvation is the first book of an all-new series that highlights the inventiveness of an author at the top of his game.Praise for Salvation"Dynamic, multifaceted characters, strong mind-expanding concepts, and impressive flair for language [make Salvation a] rare celestial event. . . . One of Britain's bestselling sci-fi authors has launched an addictive new book as the initial stage of what is sure to be an intriguing new series called the Salvation Sequence."—SyFyWire "[A] vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper . . . The journey grips just as hard as the reveal."—Daily Mail (U.K.) "Peter Hamilton just keeps getting better and better with each book, more assured and more craftsmanly adroit, and more inventive. [Salvation is] a bravura performance from start to finish. . . . 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."—Paul Di Filippo, Locus "Peter F. Hamilton is known as one of the world's greatest sci-fi writers for a reason. . . . Salvation is well worth the effort and a great introduction to some good old-fashioned space opera."—Fantasy Book Review "Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly Hamilton's best book to date."—SFX
