Humanity’s complex relationship with technology spirals out of control in this first book of an all-new trilogy from “the owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction” (Ken Follett).

In 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. And 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, this standalone series highlights the inventiveness of an author at the top of his game, as the interweaving story lines tell us not only how humanity arrived at this moment, but also the far-future consequences that spin off from it.

“How far ‘space opera’ has come! The Old Masters of sci-fi would admire the scope and sweep of Salvation, but marvel even more at the amount of thought that now has to go into making futures plausible.”The Wall Street Journal

“[A] vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper…The journey grips just as hard as the reveal.”Daily Mail (U.K.)

“Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly Hamilton’s best book to date.”SFX 

“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

“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

“Packs a teeth-rattling wallop…Hamilton expertly keeps his audience coming back for more.”Kirkus Reviews

“Peter F. Hamilton smashes through the crazy battlefield of space opera like a giant all-conquering war-robot. His newest is loud, proud, and beyond epic. Accept no substitutes, this is the real deal. You need Salvation, my friend. Everyone needs salvation.”—Ian McDonald

“No one offers action-packed, meticulous, suspenseful, and consistent high-tech futures better than Peter Hamilton, and Salvation cranks all of that up five notches.”—David Brin

“A gripping novel from one of the modern masters, Salvation is a must-read not just for sci-fi fans but for anyone who loves a great story well told.”—Jason M. Hough

“Hamilton knows how to build a world, and he’s one of the best in the field at imagining complex societies. Just as important, 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

“Space-opera intrigue with a cold shock of an ending that makes the sequel a matter of urgency.”—Ken MacLeod

“The classic Hamilton cocktail of techno-thriller, far-future vision, and action adventure shaken to an intoxicating combination. This is a promising start to an ambitious new series.”—Justina Robson
