    Story
    (949)

    Long ago, a human astrophysicist, Inigo, began dreaming scenes from the life of a remarkable human being named Edeard, who lived within the Void, a self-contained microuniverse at the heart of the galaxy. There, under the beneficent gaze of mysterious godlike entities, humans possessed uncanny psychic abilities, and Edeard's were the strongest of all. Equally strong was his determination to bring justice and freedom to a world terrorized by criminal violence and corruption.

    "Smart characters"
    Overall

    One of the things I love about Hamilton's books are the fact all the characters are smart, even the bad guys. It seems in most books there are always a range of characters that are stupid without cause and you have to wait three books for them to finally get killed off. His future seems to consist of technology that while seemingly impossible now, seems completely likely then. The way Hamilton truly thinks about the social impacts of future societies makes these books a real find. He is my new favorite author. Well thought out story and smart characters make for a great read (or listen).

    Story

    The starship Lady Macbeth encounters a long-abandoned alien spacecraft, with its escape route still intact - but leading where? If the crew claims salvage rights, the technology inside could make them wealthy enough to buy planets. But first they need to make sure it's as empty as it seems.

    "Was this recorded in a closet?"
    Overall

    This is the worst sound quality of an audio book I've ever heard. The narrator is awful and it sounds like they used a cheap microphone in a spare bedroom at his apartment. Really hard to listen to, which is a shame since Hamilton is one of the finest sci-fi writers of our time. Don't bother buying this audiobook, go buy the paper version instead.

    Story

    Kevin J. Anderson is one of the most popular and acclaimed science fiction writers in the world. He is a New York Times best-selling author with more than 11 million copies of his books in print. Now the epic saga he began with Hidden Empire continues in this breathtaking novel.

    MS says: "Great Writing"
    "Good character development"
    Overall

    I got sucked into these books and was a little annoyed when I realized book 3 wasn't going to wrap everything up. I now find out there are 8 books planned for this series, with the last one planned for 2008! My advice? Wait until all 8 books are out. I'm really not looking forward to waiting two more years to finish this sucker up, even though it is an interesting story that never seems to end.
