With his "top-notch" (Maxim) debut, Revelation Space, Alastair Reynolds was widely hailed as the new leader of cutting-edge hard-science fiction; a reputation he confirmed with the "awe inspiring"* sequel, Redemption Ark. Now, with Absolution Gap, he concludes the saga that made him "the most exciting space opera writer working today" (*Locus).
Ancient killing machines, designed to locate and destroy any life form reaching a certain level of intelligence, have been stirred from eons of sleep. Their latest target: Humanity. Seeking refuge on an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on war veteran Clavain and his ragtag companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse...

As the final book in a series, ABSOLUTION GAP will be more meaningful to those grounded in the earlier books. The plot is set in Ararat and Hela, in three time periods in the future. The human race is at risk of being destroyed by technology. Will a savior appear? John Lee makes his way steadily through long passages of explication. He rises to the challenge of presenting a broad cast of characters in a complex universe and maintains his stamina throughout the long book. His skills include a range of accents and characterizations distinguished by tone and texture. His judicious pace conveys emotion and the personal dynamics between the characters.
