“A book of great fascination, rich description, and memorable action.”—Locus
“Reynolds writes a lean and muscular prose where the intense action scenes are leavened with the kind of bright, shining, mind-boggling science talk that characterizes the best of post-modern space opera.”—Science Fiction Weekly
“Alastair Reynolds continues his rise to the top of SF...Revelation, Redemption, Absolution...Reynolds provides them all.”—The Guardian (UK)
“Fulfills all the staggering promise of [Reynolds’] earlier books, and then some...a landmark in hard SF space opera.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“An entertaining science fiction tale...The story line contains several brilliantly developed concepts...an intriguing look at religion, war, societies, and economics in outer space.”—Midwest Book Review
