AD 2204: An alien shipwreck is discovered on a planet at the very limits of human expansion – so Security Director Feriton Kayne selects a team to investigate. The ship’s sinister cargo not only raises bewildering questions, but could also foreshadow humanity’s extinction. It will be up to the team to bring back answers, and the consequences of this voyage will change everything.

Back on Earth, we can now make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely, so humanity seems invulnerable. We welcomed the Olyix to Earth when they contacted us. They needed fuel for their pilgrimage across the galaxy – and in exchange they helped us advance our technology. But were the Olyix a blessing or a curse?

The Salvation audiobook is available on Audible now, listen to a clip here:

Salvation Lost

by Peter F. Hamilton

In the twenty-third century, humanity thrives in a comparative utopia. But that is about to change. Feriton Kayne’s investigative team has discovered a terrifying alien conspiracy that could obliterate mankind. The Olyix plan to harvest humanity and carry us to their god at the edge of the universe – no matter the cost.

Now humanity stands at a crossroads. While some push to flee for the stars, others are determined to make a heroic last stand. Even if it means fighting for a future this generation will never see.
