Poseidon's Wake by Alastair Reynolds

In the conclusion of Alastair Reynolds’ epic Poseidon’s Children saga, the Akinya family receives an invitation from across the stars—and a last opportunity to redeem their name...

Send Ndege...
The cryptic message originated seventy light-years away from the planet Crucible, where Ndege Akinya lives under permanent house arrest for her role in the catastrophe that killed 417,000 people. Could it be from her mother, Chiku, who vanished during a space expedition decades earlier?
Ndege’s daughter, Goma, a biologist, joins the crew of the Travertine, dispatched to Gliese 163 to uncover the source behind the enigmatic message.
Goma’s odyssey will take her not only into the furthest reaches of space but centuries into her family’s past where the answers to the universe’s greatest mysteries await...

Really good read.

The complexity of the storyline and the linkage to past events and volumes makes for an enjoyable read over several days ors even weeks. Reynolds’ knowledge or astrophysics and grasp of emerging technology makes the novel very believable. The characters he creates are interesting as individuals and fun to follow as a group throughout the story. I always look forward to the next publication and will so again after reading this series.

Im a huge Alistair Reynolds fan but the Poseidons Children series just isnt as good as his previous efforts. After reading most of this one i realized that the fireworks i was waiting for were not forthcoming. No real reward at the end. Too much philosophising not enough action. Slow......
