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.

While RS 2, Redemption Ark was the high point in the series for me, Absolution Gap is worth investing in if you made it this far. John Lee does his usual excellent job in narration, but the story suffers from Reynold's pacing and too much focus on non-critical narrative elements IMHO. It is still a far far better book than Revelation Space.
