9780006470229: The Gap Series (4) - Chaos and Order

A new-cover reissue of the fourth 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’.

Events were not moving as the Amnion had intended. Once again humans had been false in their dealings with the aliens.

As the planetoid Thanatos Minor exploded into atoms, the Trumpet hurtled into space only one step ahead of hostile pursuers. On board were Morn Hyland and her force-grown son Davies, cyborg Angus Thermopyle and Captain Nick Succorso – old enemies thrown together in a desperate bid for survival.

For both the Amnion and the UMCP, the immediate capture of the fleeing ship and the secrets it contained was imperative. But for Trumpet’s exhausted crew the only hope lay in an illegal lab in the distant binary solar system of Valdor Industrial. It would be a journey of unpredictable danger – from which not all would return…

Review:

‘Maniacally gripping… The toughest space-opera series of recent years, the Gap series succeeds because Donaldson constructs a future with no discernible moral centre and peoples it with the most memorable and believable cast of characters anywhere in contemporary SF. Chaos and Order finds the author remorselessly turning up the heat under a bunch of players already at boiling point, allegiances and agendas feverishly shifting as their options run out.’

BOOK FOUR OF THE GAP SERIES

Events were not moving as the Amnion had intended – once again humans had been false in their dealings with the aliens.

As the planetoid Thanatos Minor exploded into atoms, the 'Trumpet' hurtled into space only one step ahead of hostile pursuers. On board were Morn Hyland and her force-grown son Davies, cyborg Angus Thermopyle and Captain Nick Succorso – old enemies thrown together in a desperate bid for survival.

For both the Amnion and the UMC Police, the immediate capture of the fleeing ship and the secrets it contained was imperative. But for 'Trumpet’s' exhausted crew the only hope lay in an illegal lab in the distant binary solar system of Valdor Industrial. It would be a journey of unpredictable danger – from which not all would return …

From one of the bestselling imaginative authors of all time comes 'Chaos and Order', the magnificent fourth volume in Stephen Donaldson’s science-fiction masterwork, the 'Gap' series – a darkly thrilling space adventure as vast as the galaxy and as unpredictable as the human heart.

“Maniacally gripping . . . the toughest space opera of recent years, with the most memorable and believable cast of characters anywhere in contemporary sf. 'Chaos and Order' finds the author remorselessly turning up the heat under a bunch of players already at boiling point, allegiances and agendas feverishly shifting as their options run out”
