They are ancient killing machines, designed to locate and destroy any life form reaching a certain level of intelligence. Now, stirred from eons of sleep, the Inhibitors have descended on their latest target: Humanity." "The first wave of Inhibitors has sent war veteran Clavain and a ragtag group of refugees into hiding. Their leadership is faltering, and their situation is growing more desperate. But their little colony has just received an unexpected visitor: an avenging angel with the power to lead mankind to safety - or draw down its darkest enemy." As she leads them to an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on Clavain and his companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse.

One thousand nine hundred and seventy four pages of plot development and world building. All the plot devices, all the ideas, and all the characters you introduced and developed, and you give me that for an ending. How could you.I've had books conclude unsatisfactorily before, at least to me, I've b...

The third in the Revelation Space series, picking up where Redemption Ark left off. I have been impressed by all the Reynolds I have read, but around the half-way mark, this one was struggling to be worth 3*. However, it redeemed itself in the last quarter, to deserve 4*.Like many of Reynolds' books...

This is the weakest of the Revelation Space novels, which is a shame, because it is the last and it ends more with a whimper than a bang. There are two main flaws; one is that it doesn't really end the story of humanity's encounter with the Inhibitors at all and that feels unsatisfactory. There is a...
