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.

    "Great story. Well constructed! Fun adventure!"

    The narator should learn to listen to what he's recorded! But a wonderful Trilogy!

    "Great job wrapping up a very exciting series!"

    I've listened to all of the commonwealth novels and this ties it up neatly. If a writer can bring tears to your eyes, then they have done a good job indeed.

    "Fascinating concepts"

    While there were some amazing ideas being explored this story stretched the limits of my suspended disbelief out of shape.
    Still I am amazed at Hamilton's depth of character and while I loved the fist commonwealth saga far more I was impressed by the creative way he drew all the old players and heroes into this story a thousand years later.
    Fun read, but long Read about 3000 pages by the end of book 3. It's all really just one book.

    "Best book yet!"
    Would you listen to The Evolutionary Void again? Why?

    I plan to. The culmination of this series is by far and away the best. As with his last trilogy, the finally does feel a bit to tidy. But then again i can appreceate the detail in which he closes every single avenue.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Evolutionary Void?

    Vengeance is sweet. There are certain characters that just beg for death and the way in which it is delivered is so just that if this were a movie, the entire theater would have exclaimed in jublulent satisfaction.


    Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

    Luckily his broad spectum of voices is decernable and a majhority of the time he is able to switch between them flawlessly. There are no specific characters that he portrays better than another but by far and away my favorite was Aaron.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughter and a bit of heart strings pulled ofr sure, and I'm not a sensitive man.

    The entire trilogy was great I couldn't stop listening to it but this last book really sums it up and put it to bed nicely.
