Publisher's Summary

Author of The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, one of the most acclaimed fantasy series of all time, master storyteller Stephen R. Donaldson retums with the second book in his long-awaited new science fiction series - a story about dark passions, perilous alliances, and dubious heroism set in a stunningly imagined future.

Beautiful, brilliant, and dangerous, Morn Hyland is an ex-police officer for the United Mining Companies - and the target of two ruthless, powerful men.

One is the charismatic ore-pirate Nick Succorso, who sees Morn as booty wrested from his vicious rival, Angus Thermopyle. Thermopyle once made the mistake of underestimating Morn and now he's about to pay the ultimate price.

Both men think they can possess her, but Morn is no one's trophy - and no one's pawn.

Meanwhile, within the borders of Forbidden Space, wait the Amnioin, an alien race capable of horrific atrocities.

The Amnion want something unspeakable from humanity - and they will go to unthinkable lengths to get it.

In Forbidden Knowledge, Stephen R. Donaldson spins a galaxywide web of intrigue, deception, and betrayal that tightens with inexorable strength around characters and readers alike.

    "Nonstop misery and stress is not entertainment"

    This book is well written, but brought me no value for my credit. The prose is very good, and well edited. However, readers need relaxation from the tension, and hope for the future. This book is just misery, and when it ended abruptly with little resolution I rejoiced, since I wouldn't have to listen to it any more. If you enjoy endless human cruelty, perhaps you would like this book, but I found little in it to recommend. Stephen Donaldson is a very competent author, but perhaps I'm not the right reader, because I have no interest in listening to another chapter of this malevolent torture.

    "love this book....."

    this is my all time favorite science fiction epic. hands down. nothing else I've ever read even comes close to getting the compulsion to keep going and going. such a brutal, violent, smart and complex story. there's nothing else like it.

    Intrigue, action and betrayal. Fantastic book. The characters are so real, you get immersed in the book.

    "Great story"

    love the story, terrific plot line! Donaldson can be a little overdramatic at times:-) not my favorite narrator maybe because I can never hear him without thinking about the hours I'll never get back when I listen to Atlas Shrugged

    "bad series"
    What disappointed you about Forbidden Knowledge: The Gap into Vision?

    hard to believe that Amazon would not let me write a bad review on my Android phone.
    They kept censoring my words and would not accept any negative ones.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen R. Donaldson again?

    Probably not!


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is fine, the content is the problem
