Been looking for these books for years.

Humans have implants and there is some kind of space plague that turnes them off.
There is a planet (I believe called oxford) that produces a drink from rose dew called oxford tears I think. This plant has a self imposed technology limit so they cant use metal or plastic only uses wood and fabrics. One of the main carictors takes them some extra hard wood I think.

There are k9's linked to humans via implants that refer to thier owners as masterlove I think.

One in the searie well over 10 years ago


Any help much appreciated
Thanks :)

I've only read about half the first one, years ago, I'm thinking of the Safehold series by David Weber.
That had tech limitations but I can't remember if any implants or doggies

I've just had a dig through his bibliography or wikipedia. Dosent look like it. Thanks though :)

This definitely sounds like Peter Hamilton's "Night's Dawn" trilogy.

* In that series, there's a planet called Norfolk, whose inhabitants restrict their technology to a mid-19th century level, and their main export is a luxury drink called "Norfolk Tears" which is only produced every so many years.

* The "possessed" people in the novel find that they cannot control their hosts' implants due to the electrical nature of the "possession".

* On the newly settled planet Lalonde, one of the supporting characters is linked to his augmented dog via implants.

The bit about the hard wood fits as well, the protagonist makes a deal to transport a special type of wood from Lalonde to Norfolk to make barrels for the alcohol, which is how he ends up on Lalonde where things start going weird.
