Empire of Light

This is the third in a series (The Shoal Sequence) from an author I had not read in the past. Gary Gibson’s books are huge, in the sense that they span vast tracts of time and space and its easy to lose track of who is doing what to whom. The rewards are great, though, if you can restrain yourself from reading too quickly (I have trouble with that) and you find you are in the middle of a finely thought out series. I’m not going to add any spoilers šŸ™‚

If you like Space Opera mixed with blood and gore, political manipulations and outright bastardry, you’ll enjoy the series. Start with Stealing Light then on to Nova War. You really need to read them one after the other, because really, its one massive book in three parts, though I understand that another novel, Marauder, which is set in the same universe, follows these.
