Revelation Space/Reynolds, Alas/Paper/1857987489/S014-F
Revelation Space: a quest for the secrets of the universe. Step into Infinity and join the ride of the century.
Nine hundred thousand years ago, something wiped out the Amarantin. Maybe it was pure bad luck that their star chose to flare just when they were on the verge of discovering space flight...or maybe luck had nothing to do with it.
For the human colonists now settling the Amarantin homeworld Resurgam, it's of little more than academic interest, even after the discovery of a long-hidden, almost perfect Amarantin city and a colossal statue of a winged Amarantin.
For brilliant but ruthless scientist Dan Sylveste, it's more than merely intellectual curiosity - and he will stop at nothing to get at the truth. Even if it costs him everything.
The Amarantin were wiped out for a reason. And danger is closer and greater than even Sylveste imagines...
Revelation Space is a huge, magnificent space opera that ranges across vast gulfs of time and space...towards the most terrifying of destinations.
"A terrific treat. I was hooked from page one. Billion-year-gone alien wars, killer intelligences - and perhaps the most stunning and original alien artefact in modern science fiction - and all rendered with the authentic voice of a working scientist. Ferociously intelligent and imbued with a chilling logic - it may really be like this Out There." - Stephen Baxter.
