The first book on the β€œCulture” Series, now a classic science fiction setting. Explores the Culture largely from the view on an antagonist in the midst of a devastating galactic war. Covers vast and immense scope with finely crafted characters and intense interpersonal relationships and conflict.

Brilliant.
