Publisher's Summary

Live in hiding - or die for freedom.

Humanity welcomed the Olyix and their utopian technology. But mankind was tricked. Now these visitors are extracting a terrible price.

For two years, the Olyix have laid siege to Earth, harvesting its people for their god. One by one, cities are falling to their devastating weaponry. And while millions have fled to seek refuge in space, others continue to fight an apparently unwinnable war.

As Earth's defeat draws near, a team attempts to infiltrate the Salvation of Life - the Olyix’s arkship. If it succeeds, those chosen will travel to a hidden enclave thousands of light years away. Once there, they must signal its location to future generations, to bring the battle to the enemy. Maybe allies scattered throughout space and time can join forces. Yet in the far future, humanity is still hunted by its ancient adversary. And as forces battle on in the cold reaches of space, hope seems distant indeed....

The Saints of Salvation is the epic conclusion to the Salvation Sequence by Peter F. Hamilton.

Critic Reviews

"Humanity rises to meet a powerful alien threat, in this extraordinary conclusion to Peter F. Hamilton’s Salvation Sequence. This is a high-octane adventure from 'the most powerful imagination in science fiction.'" (Ken Follett).

"A vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper." (Guardian on Salvation)

"Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly Hamilton's best book to date." (SFX Magazine on Salvation, five stars)

Fanbloodytastic!

Hamilton is sometimes criticised for a strong mid-game but weak endings. This book blows that out of the water. The intense fear of the situation Humanity finds itself in the first 2 books is still present in all its nerve-wracking glory. But it’s mixed this time with so much hope it can and does make one cry. Hamilton, as always, is a sneaky bugger and to see his carefully laid clues pay off as to the final disposition of the cast was just grouse. A fantastic conclusion. And SPOILERS hopefully not quite the end of the Salvation universe. The narrator was, as he always is, absolutely spot on.

Epic conclusion to an amazing sci-fi serries

Peter F. Hamilton managed to create a gripping tale covering a huge scope of story, timelines and sci-fi concepts all in a coherent engaging and believable manner. Amazing work!

Meh

Better than the first two but definitely not his best work. Too much filler. Logically inconsistent. Bit of a chore to finish. The narration is TERRIBLE. Hackneyed stereotyoical accents. Horatio being the worst. Overall disappointing

Sci Fi perfection

I counted the days to the release of this concluding book, and it has turned out to be everything I'd hoped and so much more. Thank you Peter! I implore you to continue with this rich and amazing universe :)

A nice wrap to this Trilogy

Peter, as always, neatly wraps up this for the salvation series. Now eager for the next series, which I assume will be called, Sanctuary

Same Old, But Less Engaging...

I've read every P.F.H book now, and I had always enjoyed the slow build up, the blind siding plot twist and the brilliant combat sequences, but this series and in particular this volume has left me cold and feeling I have wasted my time. The storylines are all becoming 'two timelines, futuristic socialism and the machinations of humanity's elite' and the obligatory, knock down and stand up before the bell plot driver. The boy sure likes his Cherenkov radiation these days.

Good end to the series

Nice to see all does tied up. The narration wasn't great:-) although he's a stalwart of the genre, his accents are dodgy.

No heading

Another nice book from Peter F. Hamilton, but somehow the action feels rushed and incomplete. The narrator is not really my type but probably is matter of taste.
