"Humanity's complex relationship with technology spirals out of control in this first book of an all-new trilogy from "the owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction" (Ken Follett). In 2204, humanity is expanding into the wider galaxy in leaps and bounds. Cutting-edge technology of linked jump gates has rendered most forms of transportation--including starships--virtually obsolete. Every place on earth, every distant planet humankind has settled, is now merely a step away from any other. And all seems wonderful--until a crashed alien spaceship of unknown origin is found on a newly-located world eighty-nine light years from Earth, carrying a cargo as strange as it is horrifying. To assess the potential of the threat a high-powered team is dispatched to investigate. But one of them may not be all they seem ...

I spent most of this book confused, but in a good way! Hamilton wove a complex, interesting story through time and various perspectives. He handled the varied genres well, too... gritty crime novel, spy mission, action-packed rescue, and military YA. Definitely kept me thinking about the book between the times I could read it. John Lee does a phenomenal job narrating, as always.

Review of 'Salvation' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

не люблю коротких оповідань і повістей — навіть якщо їх нанизано на нитку центральної сюжетної лінії. якби не це — тема, темп, світ, персонажі, атмосфера сподобалися. не знаю поки що, чи читатиму серію далі.

p.s. начитка джона лі (john lee) — точно не для мене, дуже тяжко вислухати ці інтонації, що рвуть речення на шмаття :-/
