Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The comparative utopia of twenty-third century Earth is about to go dreadfully awry when a seemingly benign alien race is abruptly revealed to be one of the worst threats humanity has ever faced. Driven by an intense religious extremism, the Olyix are determined to bring everyone to their version of god as they see it. But they may have met their match in humanity, who are not about to go gently into that good night or spend the rest of their days cowering in hiding. As human ingenuity and determination rises to the challenge, collective humanity has only one goal--to wipe this apparently undefeatable enemy from the face of creation. Even if it means playing a ridiculously long game indeed.

    The second book in The Salvation Sequence (after Salvation, 2018) opens with mysterious—but not unexpected—aliens arriving on a planet. This installment continues the tale of the 23rd-Century Assessment Team in a future when long distance (even intergalactic) travel is as simple as walking through a doorway. Meanwhile, ten thousand years in their future, the Strike Team continues the war against the Olyix and recruits the Neána to join forces with humanity. The pieces begin to connect between the two time periods as the Olyix arcship The Salvation of Life is revealed to be less an embassy of peace than a beachhead for an intergalactic assault. In addition to the Assessment and Strike teams, this epic galaxy-spanning conflict includes a London street gang, an executive near the top of the corporate ladder, and a mysterious observer whose consciousness grows as a plan developing over the millennia comes to fruition. Told in a quick-reading style with humor, a depth of character, and a cunning plot, Salvation Lost nicely sets up the conflict for the series finale. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
