78. (78)- Redemption Ark, by Alastair Reynolds

The second book in the Revelation Space trilogy was my favorite, an excellent read and a solid step up from the first book in the series. The idea of the inhibitors, introduced in the first book, is a fascinating and cool answer to a question so many have about life in the Universe.  (Basically, an answer to the Fermi Paradox) That idea was expanded on in interesting ways.  

More importantly, this book offered better character development, which to me, increased the stakes. This book blends cool ideas, interesting characters, and a dense, but interesting plot with deft precision. I highly recommend this series if you like dense, space opera.
