At the center of the galaxy is the Void, a strange, artificial universe created by aliens billions of years ago, shrouded by an event horizon more deadly than any natural black hole. In order to function, it is gradually consuming the mass of the galaxy. Watched over by its ancient enemies, the Raiel, the Void's expansion is barely contained.
Inigo dreams of the sweet life within the Void and shares his visions with billions of avid believers. When he mysteriously disappears, Inigo's followers decide to embark on a pilgrimage into the Void to live the life of their messiah's dreams - a pilgrimage that the Raiel claim will trigger a catastrophic expansion of the Void.
Aaron is a man whose only memory is his own name. He doesn't know who he used to be or what he is. All he does know is that his job is to find the missing messiah and stop the pilgrimage. He's not sure how to do that, but whoever he works for has provided some pretty formidable weaponry that ought to help.
Meanwhile, inside the Void, a youth called Edeard is coming to terms with his unusually strong telepathic powers. A junior constable in Makkathran, he starts to challenge the corruption and decay that have poisoned the city. He is determined that his fellow citizens should know hope again. What Edeard doesn't realize is just how far his message of hope is reaching.

I am writing this review with the goal of helping Peter F. Hamilton sell more books and make lots of money! So, he will keep writing amazing books like this one. Great imagination Peter. Your other books where good but this one is KICK A**.
I really liked Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained. I thought this would be more of the same. But this book replaces creative science fiction with tiresome scenes of soft core erotica interleaved with a completely unrelated low-tech fantasy storyline about some beast master kid who uses the cooperation of eagles to help him foil thieves in a crowded marketplace. I can't imagine reading the next book in this series.
If it weren't for John Lee's excellent narrator skills I would have given this book 1 star.
Tomany characters & it jumps between to many short stories. I'ts hard to rember all the names, who did what & all the plots.
The Dreaming Void has an interesting story line, but was riddled with profanity and sexual vulgarity throughout. I wanted to listen to the whole book but stopped listening after the first third because I simply could not stand the graphic sex scenes, descriptions of orgies and profanity, mostly the "f" bomb.
It seemed like this could have been a really great book, but there was so much extremely explicit language and so many descriptions of pornographic scenes that I had to quit. I only listened to the first part. I don't even want to consider what I might have heard if I had kept going. I only wish it were possible to delete it from my library so I wouldn't have to think about it ever again!
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
This book was so convoluted in the opening, I never could figure out who the main character was. Then the pacing of the story was so slow, I never could get into it. This was a wasted credit
Just think how nice it would be to be siting down to a good Audible si-fi book with your children and enjoying the excitement, adventure, and action. Then, suddenly, an hour into the book, without warning, the female star is bending over to receive the four mans excited hard c*cks from behind?!?!? What a fun family time you would be having then!!!! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING AUDIBLE???? Where is the X rating??? What kind of super genius writes a awesome Si-Fi book and makes it pornographic?!?!?!? HOW STUPID!!! If I wanted porno, I would get a Harlequin novel.(Not that I want porno at all!) Should I sue Audible for exposing my family to porn without warning? Maybe a class action law suit is what audible needs to get for exposing people to pornography without warning?!?! Don't get me wrong, people can have all the porn they like, I wont try to stop them. Just don't force and trick my family and me to listen to it without warning!!!
