Tanner arrives to find that Yellowstone , the most advanced civilization in human history, has descended into squalor; an alien nanotech virus known as the Melding Plague has wreaked havoc throughout the system.

Chasm City , a dense forest of mile-high shapeshifting skyscrapers, has melted into a slum. The Glitter Band , a sparkling diorama of ten thousand orbital habitats, has been reduced to a " Rust Belt " of a few hundred survivors, mostly primitive and pre-nanotech antiques. In this chaos of plague and desolation, Tanner seeks his prey, only to discover that Reivich is more clever than he originally thought. In the midst of his hunt, he begins experiencing virus-induced flashbacks from the life of Sky Haussmann , the founder of his home world Sky's Edge , who is both revered and reviled for the crimes he committed for his people.

From the depths of the gas plume at the heart of Chasm City, to the aristocratic canopy spanning what remains of the skyscrapers, Mirabel begins to unravel the mystery of the Melding Plague.

Chasm City

In the early 00s, Alastair Reynolds must have been scribbling furiously, gripped in the fever of imagination. I read Revelation Space with great interest and then immediately skipped over Chasm City because it was set decades before the first novel and only loosely related to it. So it was said. It took me great pains to obtain this book, for after seeing it laying in bookstores for many years and walking right past it, it was suddenly gone. The cashier told me that the store moves on, and was ages ago in publisher land. Yet, a week later I passed by the store again and saw that they put an old, dusty, light-bleached copy on the shelves that they must have dug up somewhere.
