In the year 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. 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. . . .

“Engaging.” – Booklist
“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.”—Alistair Reynolds
“Peter F. Hamilton’s great strength is building rich, complex future societies rooted in our own and slamming with terrible threats, and in Salvation this skill is deployed to great effect. Salvation is space-opera intrigue with a cold shock of an ending that makes the sequel a matter of urgency.”—Ken MacLeod
“Hamilton’s possible worlds are grist to the mill of humanity’s evolution.” — Mark Stevenson, author of An Optimists Tour of the Future
