House of Suns - Alastair Reynolds

Post by Jdogg »

Best book I've read in 10 years, Space Opera at its best, I cannot recommend highly enough.

Synopsis

Six million years ago, at the dawn of the star-faring era, Abigail Gentian fractured herself into a thousand male and female clones, which she called shatterlings. She sent them out into the galaxy to observe and document the rise and fall of countless human empires. Since then, every two hundred thousand years, they gather to exchange news and memories of their travels. Only this millennium there is no gathering. Someone is eliminating the Gentian line. And Campion and Purslane-two shatterlings who have fallen in love and shared forbidden experiences- must determine exactly who, or what, their enemy is, before they are wiped out of existence.
