This one picks up right where Salvation left off. If you haven't read Salvation, you can get by in this one, but I think you'd be missing a lot. There are two time tracks in this book - the 'present' of 2204 and the far, far future. The two are equally interesting and compelling, but I really liked the future timeline better. There are some really unpleasant parts of 2204, which I thought weren't necessary, but that is only about 2 chapters. Otherwise, this is still fascinating and a great read. This is plot-driven, not character driven, it doesn't seem like we're supposed to get too invested in any of the characters, but the premise and action are fascinating. I'm looking forward to the next book. Beware aliens bearing medical gifts! ( )

Second in the Salvation Sequence, wherein humans, and other aliens, are being hunted by one species who has the means to enslave and 'save' them all. The problem is, it's the kind of 'saving' that they object to.

Very Hamiltonian. Complex societal developments along side tech and mental ones. The Plot is simple. The Question is whether or not Humans and others can find a way to defeat the invading species.

Brilliantly read by John Lee. ( )

Mr. Hamilton does it again. But this time, rather than kicking off an epic war of dead people versus the living in a high-tech far-future space-opera, he twists us around a truly desperate struggle against very powerful aliens coming to "save" us, preserving us and sending us to the end of the universe where we will all share the experience together.

Sound like some religious nutters? They FEEL like religious nutters. And it's awesome. This is the start of the full-on conflict right here. All the human worlds, some alien help, and the full efforts of our own far-future humanity are set against this odd invasion.

And it's an extinction-level event.

Never mind that we have near-immortality, quantum entanglement transporters, von Neumann transhumanists, or some extreme printing technology, minds as big as moons, or anything we thought would make us amazingly resilient.

This is total war. And the twists to come are pretty damn amazing. No spoilers, but this is one of the more impressive novels by Hamilton. And when it comes to worldbuilding and storytelling and the epic, that's saying a lot. ( )

Life in the mid 23rd Century is the closest that humanity has got to a utopia, energy is pretty much free because of the quantum entangled portals and it has enabled mass transportation to almost anywhere. That comfortable life is about to come to an end as a threat of epic proportions has just been discovered. Feriton Kane’s investigative team has discovered that the supposedly benign Olyix race are heading to Earth.

They plan to harvest humanity, in order to carry us to their god at the end of the universe. It is the worst threat ever to face mankind and there is almost no time to fight back. As the Olyix ship appears it opens a portal and thousands of ship pour through with one aim in mind. Humanity could be wiped from the face of the universe; they have a choice; stay and fight, or flee out among the stars.

When I read the first in the series, Salvation, about this time last year, I thought it was a fast-paced and well-conceived sci-fi thriller. This builds on all the elements that he put in place in that first book but doesn’t have the relentless pace of the previous book. The plot is more subtle, with subplots that weave around the main thread and slowly are drawn in but the gravity of the ending. I did feel that it took a lot longer to get going than the first in the series, but then that hit the ground running.

His world-building of the habitats that humanity now live it and a futuristic London and other major cities that are preparing for the worst on Earth is really special. I also liked the space battles too, they just felt really plausible and are really well written. I thought that it concluded fairly well, but it suffers from a little of those middle book blues where a lot of the plot is unresolved and left open. That said, there is the third book coming that should resolve all these threads and I am really looking forward to it. ( )

Awesome!

As some review pointed out, "Salvation Lost" doesn't fall into some typical pitfalls af a "second book", most probably because it's an intermediate step in a broader narrative, including the three books, the first one [b:Salvation|34068552|Salvation (Salvation Sequence #1)|Peter F. Hamilton|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1518190008l/34068552._SY75_.jpg|55079132] and the forthcoming [b:The Saints of Salvation|48894937|The Saints of Salvation (Salvation Sequence, #3)|Peter F.

The pavement so carefully created in [b:Salvation|34068552|Salvation (Salvation Sequence #1)|Peter F. Hamilton|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1518190008l/34068552._SY75_.jpg|55079132] is further expanded, with the two storylines, the near future Earth with the incoming Olyix invasion, and the farthest future, with a full blown galactic warfare between humans and Olyix undergoing, are reprised almost where we left, and further developed, jumping from one to another, with the addition of few, critical, new characters.

A lot of questions got answered, and many more opened, preparing to the third (and final?) instalment of the saga.

A relevant addition to the picture is the near future London, that is not as rich as glamorous as it could be imagined in the first book. yes, quantum portals delivered a lot of wealth, but people still may be living difficult lives, small criminals do thrive, and may result very dangerous in the global schema of events.

Promises are kept and expectations are sustained! ( )
