RIVISTE - Isolata su un lontano pianeta un'antica colonia terrestre deve fronteggiare una minaccia che credeva scongiurata per sempre. Milleseicento anni erano passati da quando l'astronave "Vanguard" era atterrata su quel pianeta. La colonia umana che si era insediata aveva dovuto trovare il modo di convivere con le due specie intelligenti autoctone: i remissivi Shyla e i misteriosi e bellicosi Kerr. I Kerr erano stati ricacciati e ci si era quasi dimenticati della loro esistenza. Ma ora strani incidenti si stavano verificando sui confini delle terre dominate dagli uomini: lotte di potere, schiavi ribelli o, come alcuni paventavano, il ritorno di una antica minaccia? E sarebbero stati in grado di fronteggiarla i decadenti rappresentanti della civiltà umana?

The colony may be free, but its aging computers, aircraft, and medical equipment are badly in need of replacement. The colony's survival is now in question, and help from Earth is imminent. But there are those who fear that aid from the mother world may be more hindrance than help. . . As the second generation of colonists prepare to face the prospect of another battle with Earth's forces, a larger question looms: can humanity settle a new planet without repeating the problems of the world it left behind? An answer must be found soon. Coyote's future hangs in the balance. . .

Over twelve generations the descendents of a space crash on a world completely covered in water had managed to adapt to their marine culture. Living in villages built on giant clumps of sea plants, they survived on the flora and fauna of the sea. But they have always been at the mercy of the kragen - gigantic squid-like monsters that prey on their fish flocks, and on them. The biggest of these is King Kragen, with whom the colonists can communicate, who has to be appeased. But one man has had enough of a life of slavery and sacrifice. But how can he convince his fellow men that King Kragen must be killed? And how can that be achieved in a world without weapons?

Nine hundred thousand years ago, something wiped out the Amarantin. For the human colonists now settling the Amarantin homeworld Resurgam, it's of little more than academic interest, even after the discovery of a long-hidden, almost perfect Amarantin city and a colossal statue of a winged Amarantin. For brilliant but ruthless scientist Dan Sylveste, it's more than merelty intellectual curiosity - and he will stop at nothing to get at the truth. Even if the truth costs him everything. But the Amarantin were wiped out for a reason, and that danger is closer and greater than even Syveste imagines ... REVELATION SPACE: a huge, magnificent space opera that ranges across the known and unknown universe ... towards the most terrifying of destinations.
