    Robust, peaceful, and confident, the Commonwealth dispatched a ship to investigate the mystery of a disappearing star, only to inadvertently unleash a predatory alien species that turned on its liberators, striking hard, fast, and utterly without mercy.The Prime are the Commonwealth's worst nightmare. Coexistence is impossible with the technologically advanced aliens, who are genetically hardwired to exterminate all other forms of life.

    If you could sum up Judas Unchained in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome Space Saga


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Judas Unchained?

    Of course this is the second of the two books so it brings together all the detailed elements Peter F. Hamilton has setup for the series into a fast paced and energetic climax.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices he brings to each character are phenomenal. My mind would not be able to get the tones and inflections he has to bring the true feeling to the words written.

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Pandora's Star to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely! There are nuances you have to hear to believe. It creates such a wonderful world in your head it feels like I am listening to a movie played out in my mind.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pandora's Star?

    The intricate detail that is Peter F. Hamilton creates is superb. I loved the building of his future into a believable place in my mind that I loved to retreat to.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    John Lee was phenomenal and captured the energy and voice of each character so you always knew who was talking.

    Exposed as the Second Dreamer, Araminta has become the target of a galaxywide search by government agent Paula Myo and the psychopath known as the Cat, along with others equally determined to prevent---or facilitate---the pilgrimage of the Living Dream cult into the heart of the Void. An indestructible microuniverse, the Void may contain paradise, as the cultists believe, but it is also a deadly threat. For the miraculous reality that exists inside its boundaries demands energy....

    Where does The Evolutionary Void rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorite audio books so far. I plan on re-listening to it much like I would re-read a great paper book. Peter F. Hamilton has written a space saga that has you guessing what will happen until the very end. If you like SciFi then you will love this series.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    John Lee was phenomenal and captured the energy and voice of each character so you always knew who was talking.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Since this is the end of the series if finally brings together all the elements that have been setup along the way. The ending climax is energetic and I could not stop listening until it was over. The dénouement is heart warming and finishes just where you need it to.

    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.
