Review:

‘Donaldson’s stunning epic of futuristic anarchy and intrigue finally comes to an end, and doesn’t let the series down one bit. Action-packed, complex and filled with betrayals and shadowy agendas… Donaldson’s Gap sequence will still be selling by the bucketload a decade from now, and deservedly so.’

BOOK FIVE OF THE GAP SERIES

Widely acclaimed as the finest work of an astonishing career, Stephen Donaldson's bestselling GAP series has achieved instant classic status. Now one of the most exhilarating space epics ever told comes to a shattering climax in a thrilling tale of high adventure, powerful emotion and labyrinthine intrigue.

As the conflict between humankind and the Amnion heads for crisis, Morn Hyland, Cyborg Angus Thermopyle and the survivors on board the crippled starship 'Trumpet' must return from deep space to Earth. Only they can prevent the titanic struggle between UMCP director warden Dios and Holt Fasner, the corrupt head of the UMC, from precipitating all-out war with the Amnion aliens – and leaving humanity to pay a terrible price.

As Dios in Earth's orbit and Morn in deep space both make far-reaching decisions, the Amnion act with swift fury, and suddenly Earth stands threatened with fiery destruction . . .

“The GAP series is easily the most interesting thing he's done since the THOMAS COVENANT stories that made his name. This is a series that lacks no ambition in its depiction of the extensive human cast, diverse alien races and scope of locations. In a year or two they'll be calling these classics”
