This is book number 3 in the The Salvation Sequence series.
With refreshing determination and hopeful grit, humanity activates a bold endgame against an alien invasion in the finale of a series heralded as “a modern classic” (Stephen Baxter) from “one of the finest writers the genre has produced” (Gareth L. Powell).
Humanity is struggling to hold out against a hostile takeover by an alien race that claims to be on a religious mission to bring all sentient life to its God at the End of Time. But while billions of cocooned humans fill the holds of the Olyix’s deadly arkships, humankind is playing an even longer game than the aliens may have anticipated. From an ultra-secret spy mission to one of the grandest battles ever seen, no strategy is off the table. Will a plan millennia in the making finally be enough to defeat this seemingly unstoppable enemy? And what secrets are the Olyix truly hiding in their most zealously protected stronghold?
With his trademark optimism about humanity’s tenacity and capacity for greatness, Peter F. Hamilton wraps up this brilliant saga with a bang—and reminds us why freedom of choice is the most important freedom there is.

Praise for Salvation Lost
“Action-oriented hardcore science fiction at its page-turning best . . . Hamilton excels at interweaving the narratives of multiple viewpoint characters without once relaxing narrative impetus, combining time-lines to = great dramatic effect and telling a tense hitech story that never loses sight of the human element.”—The Guardian
“This is bold and fearless plotting, and I anticipate just as many thrilling revelations and stunning reversals in the concluding book three, The Saints of Salvation. . . . So long as there are writers like Hamilton who can blend the core and eternal human bits with the ultrahuman visionary stuff, science fiction will flourish.”—Paul De Filippo, Locus
“[An] epic galaxy-spanning conflict . . . 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.”—Booklist
“The pacing is swift, with spectacular action, thoughtful strategies, eye-popping ideas, and Hamilton’s usual attention to detail, all woven into a taut, gripping narrative.”—Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Salvation
“How far ‘space opera’ has come! The Old Masters of sci-fi would admire the scope and sweep of Salvation.”—The Wall Street Journal
“[A] vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper . . . The journey grips just as hard as the reveal.”—Daily Mail (U.K.)
“Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly [Peter F.] Hamilton’s best book to date.”—SFX
“Dynamic, multifaceted characters, strong mind-expanding concepts, and impressive flair for language [make Salvation a] rare celestial event.”—SyFyWire
