Publisher's Summary

Long ago, a human astrophysicist, Inigo, began dreaming scenes from the life of a remarkable human being named Edeard, who lived within the Void, a self-contained microuniverse at the heart of the galaxy.

There, under the beneficent gaze of mysterious godlike entities, humans possessed uncanny psychic abilities, and Edeard's were the strongest of all. Equally strong was his determination to bring justice and freedom to a world terrorized by criminal violence and corruption.

Inigo's inspirational dreams, shared by hundreds of millions throughout the galaxy-spanning gaiafield, gave birth to a religion - Living Dream. But when the appearance of a Second Dreamer seemed to trigger the expansion of the Void - an expansion that is devouring everything in its path -the Intersolar Commonwealth was thrown into turmoil. With the adherents of Living Dream determined to set forth on a dangerous pilgrimage into the Void, interstellar war threatens to erupt.

With time running out, the fate of humanity hinges on a handful of people. There is Araminta, only now awakening to the unwelcome fact that she is the mysterious Second Dreamer - and to the dire responsibilities that go with it; Inigo, whose private dreams hint at a darker truth behind Edeard's legendary life; Paula Myo, the ruthless field operative of the Commonwealth, whose search for Araminta and Inigo is about to yield a most unpleasant surprise; and Justine, whose desperate gamble places her within the Void, where the godlike Skylords hold the power to save the universe...or destroy it.

Dream on: listen to the first book, The Dreaming Void.

What the Critics Say

"Fusing elements of hard SF with adventure fantasy tropes, Hamilton has singlehandedly raised the bar for grand-scale speculative storytelling." (Publishers Weekly)
"This second book of a trilogy promises a spectacular finish." (Booklist)

    Story
    "another great world building adventure by Hamilton"

    the Void started out a little disappointing after the Commonwealth series, but this story has become just as addicting. As with the first 3 novels the narrator switches storylines on us in the blink of an eye as they happen within a chapter. He really should have a long pause or something in these situations.

    Story
    "Good science fiction and allegory of politics"

    The depictions of varios levels of advanced beings and the nature of reality are mentally stimulating. The parallels with modern politics are too strong to be accidental, though the themes of a few powerful people corrupting society for their personal and families' gains are as ancient as civilization. I like to think of Edyard Obama.
