book review

Salvation: Lost | Peter F. Hamilton




Fight together – or die alone . . .

In the twenty-third century, humanity is enjoying a comparative utopia. Yet life on Earth is about to change, forever. Feriton Kane’s investigative team has discovered the worst threat ever to face mankind – and we’ve almost no time to fight back. The supposedly benign Olyix plan to harvest humanity, in order to carry us to their god at the end of the universe. And as their agents conclude schemes down on earth, vast warships converge above to gather this cargo.

Some factions push for humanity to flee, to live in hiding amongst the stars – although only a chosen few would make it out in time. But others refuse to break before the storm. As disaster looms, animosities must be set aside to focus on just one goal: wiping this enemy from the face of creation. Even if it means preparing for a future this generation will never see.


As I said previously, Salvation, book one in the Salvation Sequence started a little slow for me, but Salvation: Lost got right into the action and continuing the story which was what I was looking for this time around.

Not a lot changed compared to this one and the last, many of the same characters, with a few new faces which brings a breath of fresh air to the book, and which I enjoyed.

Hamilton again created such amazing world building with his descriptive and detailed writing and action packed adventures.

Hamilton has a way of leaving you right on the edge of your seat, turning the page and realising you have reached the end, and immediately wanting to know what’s next.

And what’s next? I’ll guess we will have to wait and see in Book 3, The Saints of Salvation.
