“When I sold my first story, I spent the next nine months or so anxiously awaiting the appearance of two magazines.
Suspenseful, full of incident, and not obviously necessary. This second book in Hamilton’s trilogy is totally different to the first. 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.
Every human on Earth accessing the feed held their breath. It’s free and takes less than 10 seconds! And how will the far future conflict resolve?
“I found myself gripped by Salvation Lost, as I devoured it right to the scintillating end.
A collaboration of government, business, security and military wizards and problem solvers emerges to figure out what we should do.
Atwood herself has spoken about how news headlines have made her dystopian fiction seem eerily plausible, and it’s not difficult to imagine her wanting to revisit Gilead as the TV show has sped past where her narrative ended. It's very exciting and pacey, too, as chapters move between different groups of characters.

While you are here, please take a moment to support Locus with a one-time or recurring donation. Over the Decades Hamilton had been my favourite Sf writer. I liked the new character at the end. I do wish that PFH would stop the sordid and really unappealing sex scenes (hence 4 and not 5 stars) but otherwise Salvation Lost is as entertaining and sciencey as it is thrilling, with some incredible (as well as horrifying) moments. As a long term fan of Peter Hamilton it was not a hard decision to purchase Salvation. Salvation Lost continues both of those stories in parallel.

I decided to give the genre another go but Ill not bother again, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 November 2019, I think Hamilton's books are very good, inventive and thought provoking.
