Description

It was one of the less glorious incidents of a long-ago war. It led to the destruction of two suns and the billions of lives they supported. Now, 800 years later, the light from the first of those ancient mistakes has reached the Culture Orbital, Masaq. The light from the second may not.

...never ceases to surprise

The most entertaining culture novel so far. Nicely performed, wonderfully written, space-candy and alien drama.

A masterpiece from one of sci fi's greatest Minds

This story is tapestry of grand scope and scale masterfully woven together by a mind brilliant enough that He might as well be a GSV in disguise

Magnus Opus

A Space Opera and intimate journey of the loss of self. The vehicles of Being and what happens when there is nowhere left to go. Deeply satisfying and a pleasure to listen to.
