Ian McDonald recommends

Escardy Gap (1996)
Peter Crowther and James Lovegrove
"A deliciously nasty treat."

Salvation (2018)
(Salvation Sequence, book 1)
Peter F Hamilton
"Peter F. Hamilton smashes through the crazy battlefield of space opera like a giant all-conquering war-robot. His newest is loud, proud, and beyond epic. Accept no substitutes, this is the real deal. You need Salvation, my friend. Everyone needs salvation."
