Publisher's Summary

An innovator praised as one of the inventors of "the new space opera", Peter F. Hamilton has also been hailed as the heir of such golden-age giants as Heinlein and Asimov. His star-spanning sagas are distinguished by deft plotting, engaging characters, provocative explorations of science and society, and soaring imaginative reach. Now, in one of the most eagerly anticipated offerings of the year, Hamilton brings his acclaimed Void trilogy to a stunning close.

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 - energy drawn from everything outside those boundaries: from planets, stars, galaxies...from everything that lives.

Meanwhile, the parallel story of Edeard, the Waterwalker, as told through a series of addictive dreams communicated to the gaiasphere via Inigo, the First Dreamer, continues to unfold. But now the inspirational tale of this idealistic young man takes a darker and more troubling turn as he finds himself faced with powerful new enemies - and temptations more powerful still.

With time running out, a repentant Inigo must decide whether to release Edeard's final dream: a dream whose message is scarcely less dangerous than the pilgrimage promises to be. And Araminta must choose whether to run from her unwanted responsibilities or face them down, with no guarantee of success or survival. But all these choices may be for naught if the monomaniacal Ilanthe, leader of the breakaway Accelerator Faction, is able to enter the Void. For it is not paradise she seeks there, but dominion.

    "a must read for anyone who enjoyed the series"

    there are a lot of loose ends and questions that get resolved in this finale. like the previous books in the series this is a "slow burn"; deep and rich but at times can get a little boring. lived the series, love the author and the narrator is outstanding.

    "A great conclusion to a great series"

    I really enjoyed the reader, he did such a great job bringing the people to life.

    This series is a wonderful story, so involved and with so many fantastic ideas to stretch your mind. There are places with profound insight into the ideas of fulfillment and happiness, and the pit falls of those ideas as well.
    This is the kind of story I am always looking for, thought provoking and yet still a good well thought out story line.

    Story
    "The Good Kind of Weird"

    The Evolutionary Void caps the series effectively, though the story gets so fantastic it began to stretch my very forgiving suspension of disbelief. My biggest nits to pick are all in the final act, which make them hard to critique squarely. Things just wrap themselves up way too neatly for all the incredible feats the protagonists pull off.

    In spite of those things I can whole heartedly recommend the series, especially if you've listened to Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained. Like the previous series, the Void Trilogy is a wild, unpredictable, and meticulous epic of galactic proportions. It came off to me as a little less well developed, but Hamilton has managed to deconstruct time travel, that alone made the entire trilogy worthwhile in my book.

    "Nice resolution to the series. "

    I enjoyed the end of this trilogy. Characters all developed and where interesting. Learned a lot more about what was happening everywhere. Most if not all of my questions were answered. In the pacing of the story was good. There a couple of times I felt like it was a bit rushed so minus 2 star for that but overall great read and I can't wait for the next one.

    "Love the characters but story drags in parts"

    Halfway through, the story starts to drag and it became a chore to finish. Great and complete ending.

    "Wonderful series!!! Truly mind opening"

    The series was simply terrific. So much to learn about and comprehend. At times it is enjoyable to stop and playback the story in your mind to make sure you are ready for the next chapter.

    "Great wrap up to the series!"

    The universe that has been created is one I love to return to in stories like this. While the first book left me hanging, the second and third accelerated me to the summit. Bravo!
