Through these gateways another sentient race is discover on the planet Kasper, a dog-like race that is still in it's iron age. It is on this planet that the Citadel is discovered, a vast Angel built structure that has many, many secrets. However, with the discovery by some that a deadly radiation front is coming out from the centre of the galaxy, the Citadel could hold the answer to stopping it before it wipes out Kasper's inhabitants.
Kim is a pilot, travelling around the outer Kaspian system in her Goblin making a living any way she can. Troubled by her past, when she was the leader of an expedition to the Citadel and a terrible accident occurred, one that she still blames herself for. Her lover, Susan, was lost in this accident and Kim now re-lives the memories that Susan recorded. Susan was an observer, making recordings onto 'books', a way for others to experience what she does.
Eilias is an ex-soldier, one that volunteered for genetic experiments to be performed on him using Angel information that was discovered. He can sometimes see the future, although not very clearly. He is pursuing Trencher, an old friend whose precognitive abilities are by far the most powerful known. Trencher is also the result of experiments, but experiments that were performed on his unborn embryo, along with his two brothers.Read more ›
Kaspar is a very distant planet, only just released from the grip of an Ice Age, but it is inhabited by the only known sentient aliens, a doglike race living an almost medieval existence, fighting wars, obeying religious laws, caring for their families, in complete ignorance of what else might share their planet. For on it is the Citadel, a mysterious and extremely strange Angel structure, which is studied by the humans who live on the Angel Station above, sending down secret missions into the Citadel. It is decreed, for now, that this planet must be left to the Kaspians but that doesn't stop it, and the powerful Alien technology that can be found there, from being an irresistible temptation to the men and women who watch from its orbit or plot from an overcrowded, dying Earth.
Angel Stations, the first novel by Gary Gibson, is a wonder. It is packed full to the brim with ideas and these ideas vary from being completely captivating to tantalisingly elusive. Above all else, they build a universe that I was eager to explore even though, in 400 pages, there was never going to be enough time for every question to be answered.Read more ›
Quite comparable quality to "Stealing Light" and a good read.

read this again many years after I first read it and also after reading a number of other Gary Gibson books. A very interesting storyline and worth reading.Published on 31 July 2014 by M. Clare
It takes a while to get into this story as there are so many characters set in time and location. However it gets itself together and ends well. Not a bad read.Published on 3 Dec. 2013 by TVR-Andy
