The Inhibitors were designed to eliminate any life-form reaching a certain level of intelligence-and they've targeted humanity. War veteran Clavain and a ragtag group of refugees have fled into hiding. Their leadership is faltering, and their situation is growing more desperate. But their little colony has just received an unexpected visitor: an avenging angel with the power to lead mankind to safety-or draw down its darkest enemy. And as she leads them to an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on Clavain and his companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse.

Professional reviews

"As the final book in a series, ABSOLUTION GAP will be more meaningful to those grounded in the earlier books. The plot is set in Ararat and Hela, in three time periods in the future. The human race is at risk of being destroyed by technology. Will a savior appear? John Lee makes his way steadily through long passages of explication. He rises to the challenge of presenting a broad cast of characters in a complex universe and maintains his stamina throughout the long book. His skills include a range of accents and characterizations distinguished by tone and texture. His judicious pace conveys emotion and the personal dynamics between the characters. J.E.M.
