Praise for Salvation

“How far ‘space opera’ has come! The Old Masters of sci-fi would admire the scope and sweep of Salvation.”The Wall Street Journal

“[A] vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper . . . The journey grips just as hard as the reveal.”Daily Mail (U.K.)

“Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly [Peter F.] Hamilton’s best book to date.”SFX

“Dynamic, multifaceted characters, strong mind-expanding concepts, and impressive flair for language [make Salvation a] rare celestial event. . . . One of Britain’s bestselling sci-fi authors has launched an addictive new book as the initial stage of what is sure to be an intriguing new series called The Salvation Sequence.”SyFyWire

“[Salvation is] a bravura performance from start to finish. . . . Hamilton is juggling chainsaws while simultaneously doing needlepoint over a shark tank. It’s a virtuoso treat, and I for one can hardly wait for Salvation Lost.”—Paul Di Filippo, Locus

“Peter F. Hamilton is known as one of the world’s greatest sci-fi writers for a reason. . . . Salvation is well worth the effort and a great introduction to some good old-fashioned space opera.”Fantasy Book Review 

“Packs a teeth-rattling wallop . . . Hamilton expertly keeps his audience coming back for more.”Kirkus Reviews 

“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 

“[An] epic galaxy-spanning conflict . . . Told in a quick-reading style with humor, a depth of character, and a cunning plot, Salvation Lost nicely sets up the conflict for the series finale.”
“The pacing is swift, with spectacular action, thoughtful strategies, eye-popping ideas, and Hamilton’s usual attention to detail, all woven into a taut, gripping narrative.”
Kirkus Reviews
“Everything readers of Salvation will have hoped for.  A series emerging as a modern classic.”
Stephen Baxter
“Savage, brilliant, and compelling. A master class in tension and spectacle.”
—Gareth L. Powell
“I found myself gripped by Salvation Lost, as I devoured it right to the scintillating end. Earth-invaded/humanity-enslaved stories usually put Homo sapiens through the wringer—and Hamilton ratchets that up and then some. This is vertiginous in its scale, covering vast tracts of time and space, and mind-bending as it examines new frontiers of human physicality. This is a dazzling tale of humanity face-to-face and toe-to-toe with the ultimate enemy!”
—Michael Cobley
“Pacey, scary, heart-in-the-mouth thrilling, Salvation Lost is a total blast.”
—Ian McDonald
