With his "top-notch" (Maxim) debut, Revelation Space, Alastair Reynolds was widely hailed as the new leader of cutting-edge hard-science fiction; a reputation he confirmed with the "awe inspiring"* sequel, Redemption Ark. Now, with Absolution Gap, he concludes the saga that made him "the most exciting space opera writer working today" (*Locus). Ancient killing machines, designed to locate and destroy any life form reaching a certain level of intelligence, have been stirred from eons of sleep. Their latest target: Humanity. Seeking refuge on an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on war veteran Clavain and his ragtag companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse...

Great sci-fi novel, wild technology that will challenge your mind. Unsung hero's, crazy aliens. If your already a fan of the previous installments in the revelation space series this one shouldn't disappoint. I found the ending a bit unsettling as it didn't feel like Alistair's usual conclusion. I did like how he left a few lessons to be learned throughout the story.
