The Saints of Salvation by Peter F. Hamilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have nothing but positive things to say about Peter F. Hamilton's new series, now on its third book.
It has everything I dream of in a story. Not just a good story that takes on the full subjugation of humanity, but tens of thousands of whole technological alien species, but a rebellion story that goes all the extra miles with solid tech, solid circumstances, and mind-blowing ramifications.
For not only did we start out with micro-black-hole technologies in the first book, but we go way beyond that with post-human neutron-star hacking, expanded and split consciousness immortals, standard and not-so-standard cyberpunk, and a scope that spans the entire freaking galaxy.
The stakes? Freaking end-of-the-universe stakes. The enemies? An alien species that started its monocultural crusade to cocoon ALL other species to "save" them for the end of times more than a couple of a million years ago. The resolution?
Muahahahahahaha it's epic, man. It's epic.
Hamilton rocks. I've known this for a while. I did take some time to get into his earlier works, it's true, but now I'm a believer.
