9780006470212: The Gap Series (3) - A Dark and Hungry God Arises

A new-cover reissue of the third book in the bestselling five-volume sf series created by the world-famous author of the Thomas Covenant chronicles – and acclaimed as the ‘best work of his career’.

On a lonely planetoid in forbidden space, the players in a power game of mind-shattering proportions were heading for an explosive confrontation.

After a terrifying encounter with the Amnion aliens, Nick Succorso had made for the safety of Thanatos Minor, the infamous bootleg shipyard where illegals from all over the galaxy came to repair their ships and indulge their exotic tastes in entertainment. But the Amnion were waiting, and for Nick, Morn Hyland and her force-grown son Davies, the safe haven would become a vision of hell.

Meanwhile, Angus Thermopyle had been captured by the UMCP and turned into a deadly cyborg. Now, as the UMC controllers looked on from the sidelines, he was heading for Thanatos Minor, programmed to carry out a secret mission that could have nightmarish consequences for them all…

Review:

‘Third of the far-future series involving vicious corporations, aliens, pirates, power politics, police and a wealth of characters you wouldn’t want your children to bring home to dinner… good stuff, precisely what Donaldson fans keep coming back for.’
Kirkus Reviews

‘Expands even further the author’s complex mind-game universe… looks set to be the biggest space epic of all time.’
Manchester Evening News

BOOK THREE OF THE GAP SERIES

Stephen Donaldson's bestselling series reaches new levels of intensity and power as complex schemes within schemes begin to unravel on a lonely planetoid in forbidden space, where the players in a power game of mind-shattering proportions are heading for an explosive confrontation.

After a terrifying encounter with the Amnion aliens, Nick Succorso makes for the safety of Thanatos Minor, the infamous bootleg shipyard where illegals from all over the galaxy come to repair their ships and indulge their exotic tastes in entertainment. But the Amnion are waiting, and for Nick, Morn Hyland and force-grown son Davies, the safe haven turns into a vision of hell.

One thing is certain – they will not be alone. Angus Thermopyle has been captured by the UMCP and turned into a deadly cyborg. Now, as the UMC controllers look on from the sidelines, he is heading for Thanatos Minor, programmed to carry out a secret mission that could have nightmarish consequences for them all. . .

“Third of the far-future series involving vicious corporations, aliens, pirates, power politics, police and a wealth of characters you wouldn't want your children to bring home to dinner . . good stuff, precisely what Donaldson fans keep coming back for”
