Product Description

Product Description

‘You won't be able to put this book down, I know I couldn't and spent nights reading until I passed out with my kindle in hand. This is by far the best book I have read in a very long time.’
John (Wexford, USA)

'This book really was unputdownable. Perhaps one of the best new sci-fi authors I've been lucky enough to discover on my Kindle.'
A. Butler "tanj666" (Coventry, UK)

'The plot and most of all, the universe it happens in, are lovingly-well imagined and described. I really enjoyed reading this.'
Denny de la Haye "Denny" (London, England)

‘Unique and interesting characters, fascinating alien races and plenty of twists and turns made Convergent Space a thoroughly enjoyable read.’
Warwick Reed (Tasmania, Australia)

'This was the most readable scifi novel that I've read in a while. I just wish his next book was out already!'
Simon W M Scott (Northampton, England)

‘I heartily enjoyed this book. It's space-opera at its best and it has a great twist in the tail…’
M Wolstenholme (Leeds, UK)

Earth is a faded galactic power in a violent galaxy.

Blamed for an event 200 years ago that destroyed thousands of worlds and turned the galaxy upside-down, Earth has been shunned by galactic society ever since.

It has always protested its innocence and the search for the truth has become a planetary obsession.

Rone Tintet is a member of Earth’s immense army of spacefaring investigators, dispersed across the galaxy to find out what really happened 200 years ago. So far they have all failed. But Rone discovers an artefact that may finally lead to the truth and resurrect Earth’s fortunes.

Meanwhile in the outer fringes of the galaxy, a powerful new force is emerging from the ashes. Ruthless and unstoppable, this colossal army is approaching with one aim – to cleanse the entire galaxy.

In Convergent Space these two stories - one in the past, one happening right now - intertwine into a dramatic and unexpected finale.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Imaginative Space Adventure 19 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well written post-apocolyptic trek around the Galaxy. Highly original and great fun to read. There were a couple of incidents where the science was ever so slightly off but these are easily forgiven and forgotten.

The storyline was highly original with some really great ideas, some of which could be developed further in a sequel (that I am certainly looking forward to). Wonderfully interesting and colourful characters introduced throughout keep the pace flowing smoothly.

All in all, a well worthwhile read that leaves you wanting more at the end.

If you like your sci-fi with a good mix of action and adventure but not too much tech then this is the book for you. It's also amazingly good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Space Opera 25 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the most fun I've had reading a sci-fi novel in ages. Lots of spaceships, galactic conquest, ancient mysteries, superweapons, and believable and engaging characters. Intelligently written and it cracks along. Looking forward to the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading 7 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A good read, should strike a cord with Iain M Banks Culture fans. I enjoyed it immensely, although I felt the novel could have expanded on the multiple (and very interesting) civs encountered by Rone et al. All in all I'm hoping for at least one sequel...

5.0 out of 5 stars Convergent Space 23 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good read for a first book written by this writer.Full of great characters from various places,plus a story line that carries you along at a great pace. Then at the end is a question ? would you do it, which leaves the way open for a sequel. I read this book in one day as found it very difficult to put it down.

Twists and turns. Characters that you can attach too. Some nice exploration of sifi concepts, with a romp through a well painted universe.

5.0 out of 5 stars page turner 31 Mar 2013
By Farno
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the Kindle edition and could not out it down. Very good character development and great sub plots.The reader is transported into different cultures and worlds with ease. Very well written.The basic premise is that there had been a galactic war and humanity was blamed, skip forwards a few centuries and humanity is still attempting to clear its name. The story follows some wonderful characters as they piece together fragments of forgotten information and cultures, visiting long lost places.This leads to the discovery of a new threat that has the potential to destroy everything in its path. resolving the mystery of the past may prevent to destruction of the present.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Space Opera 19 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Im pretty new to Sci-Fi - having spent most of my time reading crime and adventure stories. Recently I got into Peter F Hamilton's books and was immediately converted to the large scale Space-Opera type stories - you know - lots of space ships, deep space travel, interesting characters, alien beings and amazing technology.

I came across Convergent Space by chance and WOW what a story. Its the kind of story that just hooks you in from the start and is so well written and a pleasure to read. Its a real page turner and very difficult to put down. The ending is really good too with a bit of a twist. I undersand that the sequal is already being written and I cant wait till that comes out.

Do yourself a favour - buy this book. You wont regret it

I really enjoyed this novel it moved along at a cracking pace with plenty of twists and turns. The good thing about this book is the ending is left with another book being possible all be it at a slight tangent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok read but could have been better
Great ideas but lack of distinct characters and tension in the plot let it down. I expect this is an author to watch as the universe and ideas are first class.
