Summary
Alastair Reynolds continues his Revelation Space series with this "first-rate work of science fiction, a thoroughly modern space opera full of dangers and marvels to match"(SF Site). The Inhibitors were designed to eliminate any life form reaching a certain level of intelligence—and they've targeted Humanity. War veteran Clavain and a ragtag group of refugees have fled into hiding. Their leadership is faltering, and their situation is growing more desperate. But their little colony has just received an unexpected visitor: an avenging angel with the power to lead mankind to safety—or draw down its darkest enemy. And as she leads them to an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on Clavain and his companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse..
