Summary

Know your enemy - or be defeated.

AD 2204
An alien shipwreck is discovered on a planet at the very limits of human expansion - so Security Director Feriton Kayne selects a team to investigate. The ship’s sinister cargo not only raises bewildering questions but could also foreshadow humanity’s extinction. It will be up to the team to bring back answers, and the consequences of this voyage will change everything.

Back on Earth, we can now make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely, so humanity seems invulnerable. We therefore welcomed the Olyix to Earth when they contacted us. They needed fuel for their pilgrimage across the galaxy - and in exchange they helped us advance our technology. But were the Olyix a blessing or a curse?

AD 50,000
Many light-years from Earth, Dellian and his clan of genetically engineered soldiers are raised with one goal. They must confront and destroy their ancient adversary. The enemy caused mankind to flee across the galaxy, and they hunt us still. If they aren’t stopped, we will be wiped out - and we’re running out of time.

Salvation is the first title in a stunning science fiction trilogy, The Salvation Sequence, by Peter F. Hamilton.

I couldn't follow the narrator/writer.

Might be better to pick up the hardcopy book. I found this quite monotonous. DNF

20 hours of only slightly interesting snippets

I am a Huge Peter F. Hamilton, but I feel this book stretched too much what is essentially an introduction to the story.

It tells only motheratly interesting fragments of many characters and different events, trying to create a big mistery, but ends up making an entire book filled with unimportant stuff.

It's OK. I usually Love Hamilton though

Canterbury Tales style stories within stories told around a table of pilgrims, also used in the Hyperion books.Great literary device. These stories however are only quite interesting.

For some reason Hamilton has made all his characters incredibly ethnically diverse which has proved a real challenge to the usually fantastic John Lee. I struggled to keep track of who was who while this nuance added nothing to the plot.

The far future stuff is pretty uninspired. Lord of The Flies meets Brave New World meets Enders Game while rehashing the animal servants from The Void. The enemy is very disappointing.

Excellent build-up

The scene is now set for the next couple of books in this series. Can’t wait!
