This book is great space opera on a truly Epic Scale. In the future earth is under attack and faces obliteration so we quickly send out three colony ships to different parts of the galaxy. Fast forward 150 years to find out earth actually survived and one of the colony ships landed on a soon to be hotly contested planet that is home to an ancient race.
This book has it all: weird aliens, very cool tech, and stellar new ideas and concepts about how the universe works. Cobley's imagination keeps stunning the reader throughout but never at the sake of character or plot.
Highly recommended to readers of Iain Banks or David Brin.
