Ancient killing machines, designed to locate and destroy any life form reaching a certain level of intelligence, have been stirred from eons of sleep. Their latest target: Humanity. Seeking refuge on an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on war veteran Clavain and his ragtag companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse...

display_description 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...
