Salvation Lost is the second stunning novel in the Salvation Sequence, from 'the owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction' - Ken Follett.Fight together - or die alone . . .In the twenty-third century, humanity is enjoying a comparative utopia. Yet life on Earth is about to change, forever. Feriton Kane's investigative team has discovered the worst threat ever to face mankind - and we've almost no time to fight back. The supposedly benign Olyix plan to harvest humanity, in order to carry us to their god at the end of the universe.

As some review pointed out, "Salvation Lost" doesn't fall into some typical pitfalls af a "second book", most probably because it's an intermediate step in a broader narrative, including the three books, the first one [b:Salvation|34068552|Salvation (Salvation Sequence #1)|Peter F. Hamilton|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1518190008l/34068552._SY75_.jpg|55079132] and the forthcoming [b:The Saints of Salvation|48894937|The Saints of Salvation (Salvation Sequence, #3)|Peter F.

The pavement so carefully created in [b:Salvation|34068552|Salvation (Salvation Sequence #1)|Peter F. Hamilton|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1518190008l/34068552._SY75_.jpg|55079132] is further expanded, with the two storylines, the near future Earth with the incoming Olyix invasion, and the farthest future, with a full blown galactic warfare between humans and Olyix undergoing, are reprised almost where we left, and further developed, jumping from one to another, with the addition of few, critical, new characters.

A lot of questions got answered, and many more opened, preparing to the third (and final?) instalment of the saga.

A relevant addition to the picture is the near future London, that is not as rich as glamorous as it could be imagined in the first book. yes, quantum portals delivered a lot of wealth, but people still may be living difficult lives, small criminals do thrive, and may result very dangerous in the global schema of events.

Promises are kept and expectations are sustained! ( )
