9780330519724: The Thousand Emperors (Final Days)

The second in a high octane space adventure series from a master storyteller

Archivist Luc Gabion is dying, slowly, victim of a forced technology implant while on assignment. He brought down a powerful terrorist, but at great cost, and this new tech brings unexpected dangers. Luc must investigate the Thousand Emperors, rulers of the Tian Di's stellar empire. One of their number has been murdered and he needs to find the killer. But the technology he now carries supersedes anything he's encountered, and Luc sees things he knows are forbidden. As the truth emerges, he's in trouble. Any of these leaders could be guilty—and could execute him on a whim. Worse, the murder victim was brokering the coming Reunification. Two great warring civilizations, separated for centuries, due to unite in a new age of peace. But it becomes clear that someone will do anything to ensure that day never comes.

About the Author:

Gary Gibson is the author of The Shoal Sequence and The Final Days series, and the two stand-alone novels Angel Stations and Against Gravity.

Review:

"[The book] feels a bit like the complex plotting of Peter F. Hamilton mixed with some ideas from Freederik Pohl's Heechee saga, and it's darn fun." —SFSignal.com

“The sweep of this book is impressive, and Gibson deftly keeps the action going and the reader enthralled right through the unexpected but thoroughly satisfying ending.” —Publishers Weekly starred review
