Nine hundred thousand years ago, something annihilated the Amarantin civilization just as it was on the verge of discovering space flight. Now one scientist, Dan Sylveste, will stop at nothing to solve the Amarantin riddle before ancient history repeats itself. With no other resources at his disposal, Sylveste forges a dangerous alliance with the cyborg crew of the starship Nostalgia for Infinity. But as he closes in on the secret, a killer closes in on him because the Amarantin were destroyed for a reason. And if that reason is uncovered, the universe-and reality itself-could be irrevocably altered. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • Ferociously intelligent and imbued with a chilling logic---it may really be like this Out There. Stephen Baxter, coauthor of The Light of Other Days
  • “A striking first novel. Revelation Space delivers the goods. Certain to be one of the year’s most impressive debut novels, and one of the most significant large-scale epics of the year. Reynolds is the next writer to watch in the resurrection of the conceptually intelligent space opera.”


  • “Dense with information and incident, this longish novel has no surplus fat and seems almost too short. A sparkling SF debut.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “[A] hard sci-fi tour de force…Reynolds’ vision of a future dominated by artificial intelligence trembles with the ultimate cold of the dark between the stars.”

    Publishers Weekly

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Scott Schiffmacher | 2/8/2014

    " It was a thoroughly enjoyable book, though by the end it began to feel a little long-winded. The premise and character development were both excellent, and it felt as if it were written during the wonderful days of science fiction in the early sixties. I was very surprised to learn that it had been written much more recently. I am looking forward to starting Redemption Ark next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Caleb | 2/5/2014

    " If you're in the mood for grim, hard sci-fi that pulls no punches, this is a good choice. Reynolds is no Heinlein and could use an assertive editor (who needs to begin by taking a long look at the prose in the middle third of the book). However, there are very imaginative mysteries in this story, tied to insightful speculation and some superb adventure. Most of it is wrapped up by the last page in a way I found quite satisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by David Hirt | 2/3/2014

    " What a ride. Great sci fi. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Molly Staron | 1/30/2014

    " Book club is today and I finished it yesterday. I am proud of myself for actually reading it. I'll leave it at that. "
