For the Binge Readers: The Inhibitor Trilogy

Just an excellent space opera about humanity’s desperate fight against the Inhibitors, alien killing machines designed to detect intelligent life and destroy it.

Not ready to commit to a full series but intrigued by the Inhibitor Trilogy? Here are two other options for you to choose from!
The once-utopian Chasm City— a domed human settlement on an otherwise inhospitable planet — has been overrun by a virus known as the Melding Plague, capable of infecting anybody, organic or computerized. In this hellscape, security operative Tanner Mirabel hunts for a post-mortal killer. If you loved the noir elements of James S. A. Corey’s Leviathan Wakes, you’ll love Chasm City, the stand-alone space opera set in the universe of the Inhibitor Trilogy.
However, if you are finding it difficult to sit down and enjoy a full-length novel without distraction these days: good news: Alastair Reynolds is just as prolific as a writer when it comes to short fiction as he is a novelist.
