Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds
A Special Edition of a modern science fiction classic.
Science fiction on the grandest and most commercial scale from Gollancz, redefining space opera for the new century.
Nine hundred thousand years ago, something wiped out the Amarantin. For the human colonists now settling the Amarantin home world Resurgam, it's of little more than academic interest, even after the discovery of a long-hidden, almost perfect Amarantin city and a colossal statue of a wingest Amarantin. For brilliant but ruthless scientist Dan Sylveste, it's more than mere intellectual curiosity - and he will stop at nothing to get at the truth. Even if the truth costs him everything. But the Amarantin were wiped out for a reason, and that danger is closer and greater than even Sylveste imagines . . . REVELATION SPACE: a huge, magnificent space opera that ranges across the known and unknown universe . . . towards the most terrifying of destinations.
