Salvation by Peter F Hamilton

Peter F. Hamilton’s dazzling space opera features alien first contact, threats to humanity, a future war and amazing technological advances.

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.

Peer & Press 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

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, author of the Quantum Gravity series

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, author of the Luna series
