    Know your enemy - or be defeated.

    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 therefore 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?

    AD 50,000
    Many light-years from Earth, Dellian and his clan of genetically engineered soldiers are raised with one goal. They must confront and destroy their ancient adversary. The enemy caused mankind to flee across the galaxy, and they hunt us still. If they aren’t stopped, we will be wiped out - and we’re running out of time.

    Salvation is the first title in a stunning science fiction trilogy, The Salvation Sequence, by Peter F. Hamilton.

    Not one of Hamilton's best (yet), bad narrator

    The story is a little long-winded, but entertaining enough not to get boring. The entire novel is just a large scale set-up for what's to come, combined out of multiple story lines of quite a few characters. It'll be interesting how this plays all out in the sequel, and this will determine if consuming this novel is worth it.
    One big disadvantage of this novel is the narrator, as with most of the recent PFH novels. John Lee is just horrible. He reads way too fast and doesn't allow for breaks, so many passages, especially dialogue, seems quite rushed and he also doesn't do a good job in distinguishing between characters by different intonation, etc. It's very hard to follow who's speaking sometimes, and what annoys me the most is knowing that listening could be a lot more entertaining with a better narrator.

    Confusing Storyline

    Maybe as a paper-book this story is good, but it's too confusing as an audiobook and keeps meandering along without managing to make me care about characters and storyline. Because there are so many characters and timelines interwoven I was just lost halfway through even though the excellent narrator does his best to breathe life into the characters.

    anstrengender Sprecher. ständiges Hoch und Runter

    kann der Geschichte gar nicht folgen, weil der Sprecher so übertreibt und nervig moduliert. schade.

    Get the book - Story OK but exhausting to listen

    Story is confusing due to the frequent shifts in plotlines, flash backs and change in narrating characters. I believe this would make for a great read, but as an audiobook, i had to force myself to finish it.

    I found myself not enjoying this due to two main reasons:

    1. It sounds to me like John Lee just read this one to get it over with.
    2. The structure of the chapters made it hard to navigate on different playback devices (mobile, Alexa) because they are named after the plotline. So that chapter 1 would be "Juloss" Chapter 2 would be "The assessment Team" and Chapter 3 would be "Juloss" again,

    The confusion about the chapter navigation combined with the mechanical reading resulted for me in just launching a random chapter without even bothering anymore to find the last position i actively remember hearing. Just like jumping into a waterfall of blablabla until i fall asleep.

    Aufgegeben

    unglaublich langatmig. Der Einstieg in die Storry verspricht gleich Spannung aber dann verrennt sich der Autor in Stundenlanges einführen von vorgeschichte, Charakteren und ein langweiliges, viertelstündiges beschreiben eines "Sportereignisses"
    Danke geht zurück!

    not so good

    To much cussing.
    The storyline is too confusing.
    To many sidestroies.

    P. F. H, Interesting and imaginative as always.

    Good story, building up to something bigger coming in the following books. Great performance by John Lee, as usual.

    Quite funny

    I've read most books/cycles from Hamilton and this is no real surprise - which is not particularly bad: In fact it's real fun to read.
    Yet again in a not-so-far future, featuring Hamilton's sometimes lengthy style of storrytelling - humanity is in danger of being eradicated by an alien species. This is a common theme, but the setting is nicely done and this first book uses a lot of retrospective little sub-stories that add to a greater picture. It feeös a lot like the void trilogy, where we have two seemingly separate storylines, later converging into a grand finale, but on a smaller scale.
    I'm really looking forward to the next two volumes!
