US Cover & Excerpt for Salvation

The Verge have got a nice little excerpt from Peter’s next novel up on their site along with the US cover. As there’s nothing official on the publishers website I’m not sure if this is the final cover, but the style is a little different from previous ones. Still, nice.

Updated Synopsis for Salvation

Pan Macmillan’s website has an updated synopsis for Salvation, due September 2018 and coming in at 592 pages. Sounds like it’ll be a good one:

Book One in the Salvation Sequence, a dazzling space opera trilogy from master of the genre, Peter F. Hamilton

Know your enemy – or be defeated

AD 2204
An alien shipwreck is discovered on a planet at the very limits of human expansion – so Security Director Feriton Kayne selects a team to investigate. The ship’s sinister cargo not only raises bewildering questions, but could also foreshadow humanity’s extinction. It will be up to the team to bring back answers, and the consequences of this voyage will change everything.

Back on Earth, we can now make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely, so humanity seems invulnerable. We therefore welcomed the Olyix to Earth when they contacted us. They needed fuel for their pilgrimage across the galaxy – and in exchange they helped us advance our technology. But were the Olyix a blessing or a curse?

AD 50,000
Many lightyears from Earth, Dellian and his clan of genetically-engineered soldiers are raised with one goal. They must confront and destroy their ancient adversary. The enemy caused mankind to flee across the galaxy and they hunt us still. If they aren’t stopped, we will be wiped out – and we’re running out of time.

Salvation is the first title in a stunning science fiction trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton

News on the Salvation Sequence

Peter’s next trilogy will be the Salvation Sequence, and based on a post on Facebook it looks like they’ll be called Salvation, Salvation Lost, The Saint of Salvation. And now Peter’s publisher, Pan Macmillan, have a page on their catalogue site for the first book. Early days yet, but looks like a shorter-than-normal novel with a release date of next September. Here’s the synopsis – can’t wait!

Book One in the Salvation Sequence, a dazzling space opera trilogy from master of the genre, Peter F. Hamilton
In the year 2204, an abandoned alien spaceship is discovered 90 light years from Earth, in an uninhabited star system. The ship is found to be carrying humans held in suspension – yet humans have never ventured this far out into space before. Faster-than-light travel is impossible – so how did they get here? A team of five specialists is sent to investigate. But each of them has their own agenda – and not all of them can be trusted. Does the real threat come from the spaceship, or from those who seek to learn its secrets . . . ?

UK Cover Art for A Voyage Through Air

a-voyage-through-air

The epic final instalment of The Queen of Dreams trilogy – a remarkable children’s fantasy series by Peter F. Hamilton: the UK’s bestselling adult-science-fiction author. Beautifully illustrated by Rohan Eason, this is a future classic in the making.

War is coming – and every leader of every realm has sided with the War Emperor and pledged to fight the Karrak invaders – apart from Taggie, the teenage Queen of Dreams-to-be.

Aided by an unusual band of allies, including a Karrak Lord, an elf and a feisty skyfolk captain, Taggie knows that the only way to stop the war is to find the long-lost gateway between our universe and the dark universe: the home of the Karrak people.

But where do you begin to look for something that was deliberately hidden? And just how much is Taggie willing to lose in her desperate quest for peace?

A Voyage Through Air is the third and final book in the fantastic The Queen of Dreams children’s fantasy trilogy.
