The Confederation is starting to collapse politically and economically, allowing the "possessed" to infiltrate more worlds.
Quinn Dexter is loose on Earth, destroying the giant arcologies one at a time. As Louise Kavanagh tries to track him down, she manages to acquire some strange and powerful allies whose goal doesn't quite match her own.
The campaign to liberate Mortonridge from the possessed degenerates into a horrendous land battle, the kind that hasn't been seen by humankind for 600 years; then some of the protagonists escape in a very unexpected direction. Joshua Calvert and Syrinx fly their starships on a mission to find the Sleeping God, which an alien race believes holds the key to overthrowing the possessed.
The Naked God is the brilliant climax to Peter F. Hamilton's awe-inspiring Night's Dawn trilogy.

"The depth and clarity of the future Hamilton envisions is as complex and involving as they come." (Publishers Weekly)
Do you read the book before you dislike my reviews?
2016 has become a fantastic year for Peter F. Hamilton audiobook listeners. We finally got the long waited Night's Dawn Trilogy on audio all in the last five months. These books was first published in the 90's and we waited a long time for the audio version to come out. The final installment of the trilogy was a little of a bare to get through mainly because I've listen through my fair share of this author in the last few months, but I still enjoyed "The Naked God." It's still a good conclusion to the series. As a fanboy to these books, of course I would give it five stars.
The story line had enough coverage to tie up any open questions and the reader was outstanding as usual from John Lee. Could had the audio been a tad bit shorter than 48 hours and 38 minutes? Not with Lee's voice. He has always been an outstanding narrator.
I've exceeded my Peter F. Hamilton quota this year, but I'm always looking forward to the next one.
the first three quarters of the book are good. towards the end of the book however it starts to feel a little rushed and Deus Ex machina. however if you made it this far already it's certainly worth finishing. the narrator is as always fantastic
Peter Hamilton writes the best Sci-fi I've ever read. Full Stop. This is no exception. Great characters and amazing concepts, and imagery. John Lee does a wonderful job bringing it all to life. Highly recommended!!!
This book made the over all experience worth the listen. My hat off to Hamilton.
What really sticks out for me is the tremendous versatility and dynamic range of narrator, John Lee. Each character distinct. Each class or race of character distinct. The cast of characters is simply enormous, as is common in Peter F. Hamilton multithreaded epics. We are talking about – I think – 120 or more hours of narration in this trilogy. For the narration to be this good for that long… wow!
