Alastair Reynolds Synopses: Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds is the first novel in the sequence of the same name. 900,000 years ago, something wiped out the Amarantin. For the human colonists settling the Amarantin homeworld Resurgam, it’s of little more than academic interest. But Dan Sylveste will stop at nothing to find out precisely what happened.

Chasm City by Alastair Reynolds is the second book in the Revelation Space Sequence. Tanner Mirabel was a security specialist who didn’t make mistakes, until one day when a woman under his care was blown away during an attack by a vengeful young postmortal named Argent Reivich.
