Publisher Description

The highly-acclaimed first novel in the Revelation Space universe—a debut that has redefined the space opera with a staggering journey across vast gulfs of time and space to confront the very nature of reality itself...

“[A] TOUR DE FORCE…RAVISHINGLY INVENTIVE.”—Publishers Weekly
 
Nine hundred thousand years ago, something annihilated the Amarantin civilization just as it was on the verge of discovering space flight. Now one scientist, Dan Sylveste, will stop at nothing to solve the Amarantin riddle before ancient history repeats itself. With no other resources at his disposal, Sylveste forges a dangerous alliance with the cyborg crew of the starship Nostalgia for Infinity. But as he closes in on the secret, a killer closes in on him. Because the Amarantin were destroyed for a reason—and if that reason is uncovered, the universe—and reality itself—could be irrevocably altered...

Amazing story...

Sometimes it’s hard to follow with the different plots yet they come together nicely. Great story. Would receive 5 stars however some formatting issues keep it from that score. All in all I’d recommend this story.

Proper Scifi

Good proper scifi in my opinion. Fun and I'd read it again.

Complaint: like so many ebooks now-a-days the editing is terrible, sometimes making parts of the story very difficult to follow.
