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)

    "Slightly twisted"

    I love a good twist and this had a couple but I feel it a little lacking from the first novel and yet completely contented by it.

    "Mind bender"

    Great balance of story and characters. The science-fiction was really interesting and different from other stories. I loved it.

    "A grand space opera that lost me on occasion"

    On occasion I would get lost in the plot but it's such a well told story it mattered not. A nice walk with the Waterwalker.

    Story
    "A unique Sci-Fi setting"
    Would you listen to The Temporal Void again? Why?

    I'm more likely to listen to The Dreaming Void again, because that's where more new concepts are first presented


    What did you like best about this story?

    The subversion of fantasy elements to construct a Sci-Fi story.


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

    A strong performance as always.


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

    The Temporal Void inspired a few instances of shock or outrage.

    "Exceptional!"

    Great continuation of the trilogy. I highly advise this trilogy but only after you read the beginning of the common wealth saga.

    "Too long and drawn out."

    This story was very long and drawn out. The relationship between the two stories was too diverse to have a clear flow of the overall story

    "great book"

    loved it. The sex in the book could become distracting from the plot and i often skipped sections not due to the quality ofthe description and power of the act but because it took away from the story around it. the abundance of character and collection of setting and ideas of future kind is amazing and provoking. with a powerful political retoric relevent to today and human history.
