Revelation Space and Redemption Ark have been hailed as the best of the new breed of space opera. Now Absolution Gap concludes Alastair Reynolds’ epic science fiction trilogy.

The Inhibitors were designed to eliminate any life-form reaching a certain level of intelligence—and they’ve targeted humanity. War veteran Clavain and a ragtag group of refugees have fled 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.

And 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A book of great fascination, rich description, and memorable action.”


  • “Reynolds writes a lean and muscular prose where the intense action scenes are leavened with the kind of bright, shining, mind-boggling science talk that characterizes the best of post-modern space opera.”

    Science Fiction Weekly

  • “A fitting finale to the series, a landmark in hard SF space opera.”

    Publishers Weekly

    " The final answers to.....what de fuck is going on there!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Scotto Moore | 2/14/2014

    " aggravating ending that almost (not quite) destroys the good will i had for this series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Claire Botman | 2/5/2014

    " No, not as good as the first 2 books + Chasm City, agree with most of the reviewers here, and yes the ending was very disappointing. I miss Volyova, I miss Felka and Clavain, those wonderful characters from Redemption Ark. The captain was what kept me reading though, that we were given a glimpse into his mind & feelings after such a long silence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Noel G | 1/24/2014

    " This perhaps deserves more than three stars, however, compared to the two other books i the series, it is a touch disappointing. I got the sense that some parts of the story were forced together to fit. And some characters were killed off simply to be able to close the tale. This could have been so much better. "
