The seventh Culture book from the awesome imagination of Iain M. Banks, a modern master of science fiction.

It was one of the less glorious incidents of a long-ago war.

It led to the destruction of two suns and the billions of lives they supported.

Now, eight hundred years later, the light from the first of those ancient mistakes has reached the Culture Orbital, Masaq'.

The light from the second may not.

I'm sold on the Culture and also the characters.

A great read for this post-modern age.

I expected more from this book. The characters were a little flat, and the story seemed to drag a bit.
