But when a near-dead angel drops onto his dissecting table, Quillon's world is wrenched apart one more time. If Quillon is to save his life, he must leave his home and journey into the cold and hostile lands beyond Spearpoint's base, starting an exile that will take him further than he could ever imagine. But there is far more at stake than just Quillon's own survival, for the limiting technologies of the zones are determined not by governments or police but by the very nature of reality-and reality itself is showing worrying signs of instability., Streaming audiobook., Technology and civilization, Terminal world /Alastair Reynolds., Terminal worldAlastair Reynolds., Unabridged., Z0VIA, [United States] :Tantor Audio :Made available through hoopla,2010., aafcaf08-10-11ma-, audios, computerc, data file, digital, hoopla digital., online resourcecr, othersz, qafea06-12-15mn-, spoken wordspw
