Late in the twenty-sixth century, the human race has advanced enough to accidentally trigger the Inhibitors-alien-killing machines designed to detect intelligent life and destroy it. The only hope for humanity lies in the recovery of a secret cache of doomsday weapons-and a renegade named Clavain who is determined to find them. But other factions want the weapons for their own purposes-and the weapons themselves have another agenda altogether.

    " Space ships, space battles, decent science written into good story; this was always going to be five stars. "

    " I liked this sequel more than I thought I would. I found it much easier to follow than Revelation Space - most likely because I was already familiar with the various factions. "

    " I read this book this weekend, and I must say that it was fairly interesting. Although it mostly serves as a stopping point before the next book (Absolution Gap), there are still plenty of exciting moments, and cool uses of nano-tech etc to make the book interesting. Conjoiners are featured heavily in this book, so if you are of the opinion that the "singularity" will result in the death of those transending, no need to read on. "

    " After loving the first one in this series (Revelation Space), I was kind of underwhelmed with #2. There are some great setpieces and battlescenes, and tons of cool sci-fi stuff along the way, but everything takes waaaay long to set up. I guess I'm always unhappy when I find myself wishing for a book to be over already, rather than being sad when approaching the last pages. Obviously, this being the middle in a trilogy makes it the dreaded "transitional" novel, so I know there would be no resolution to anything, but I just couldn't get into it as much as Revelation Space (which was really good). Also, there is a major conflict in the end that gets hyped and built up for about 550 pages, only to occur off-screen! I mean, you're gonna make me stick through the boring buildup for that long, and when I get to the payoff, I learn about "the big thing" from characters talking about the aftermath? I haven't felt this let down since I found out that Petsmart doesn't sell gremlins. "
