A huge object appears suddenly in our solar system and three russian cosmonauts are sent out to explore it. In a cleverly constructed frame story that is set a couple of years after this event we learn what happened and what far reaching impact it had - and still has.

I can't say that Alastair Reynolds tells something completely new but he mixes the typical "Big Dumb Object" trope with a lot of interesting ingredients. He has enough room to awaken a dark future to life and even the space voyage contains some twists.

I don't know if I will still remember it in 5 years but I enjoyed it very much and can recommend it to all Hard SF fans.
