Publisher's Summary

The Confederation is starting to collapse politically and economically, allowing the "possessed" to infiltrate more worlds.

Quinn Dexter is loose on Earth, destroying the giant arcologies one at a time. As Louise Kavanagh tries to track him down, she manages to acquire some strange and powerful allies whose goal doesn't quite match her own.

The campaign to liberate Mortonridge from the possessed degenerates into a horrendous land battle, the kind that hasn't been seen by humankind for 600 years; then some of the protagonists escape in a very unexpected direction. Joshua Calvert and Syrinx fly their starships on a mission to find the Sleeping God, which an alien race believes holds the key to overthrowing the possessed.

The Naked God is the brilliant climax to Peter F. Hamilton's awe-inspiring Night's Dawn trilogy.

What the Critics Say

"The depth and clarity of the future Hamilton envisions is as complex and involving as they come." (Publishers Weekly)

    "good but not as good as the first two"

    the first three quarters of the book are good. towards the end of the book however it starts to feel a little rushed and Deus Ex machina. however if you made it this far already it's certainly worth finishing. the narrator is as always fantastic

    Story
    "Storytelling in a league of its own"

    The Naked God is the final installment of Peter F Hamilton's lengthy Night's Dawn trilogy. With possession by the formerly dead from the beyond seemingly unstoppable as well as Quinn Dexter's invasion of Earth to effect an even greater horror on humanity, things are pretty grim. In addition, Valisk is under attack in another universe, while the Mortonridge liberation and Norfolk are going badly. Joshua Calvert is sent on a mission to find the sleeping god and uncovers another alien species along the way that fills in gaps about the origin of the Taraftca and the Kindt reveal they are not what they seem.

    The sci-fi elements continue and extend the strange mix of physical and metaphysical. The aliens become more alien, but not in a weird or bizarre way, but just different in both form and behavior. Hamilton also explores the concept of alternative universes with differing "universal" laws. The nature of the beyond is also more fully explored with the notion of a soul taking substance as well as a terrifyingly basis for their return (along with an explanation for the mostly lack of decent souls). The idea for the sleeping god is simply awe-inspiring. Along the way, Hamilton intersperses the grand with the mundane and the banal. With so many intersecting plot lines, the visual of a stage performer spinning multiple plates comes to mind. Each thread is both captivating and cerebrally engaging.

    John Lee's performance is simply magnificent with the only ding for production quality for the lack of pauses between scene shifts, which are numerous. The multiple characters of both sexes and ages, including children, along with several alien species surely has set a record. Despite its length, a sense of emptiness awaits its conclusion as Hamilton's universe seems more real than reality. It's pity that tale cannot be savored with glass with Norfolk Tears.

    "Great characters, great plot, and a fantastic ending."

    When I started the first of the three books, I was afraid when I got to The Naked God the story would go down hill. It was just the opposite, The Naked God being the best of the three. Great happy ending with very few loose ends.

    "Great story, too many characters"

    Very involving story with great performance by the narrator. The story is complex but too many characters.

    "Of Course Five Stars"

    2016 has become a fantastic year for Peter F. Hamilton audiobook listeners. We finally got the long waited Night's Dawn Trilogy on audio all in the last five months. These books was first published in the 90's and we waited a long time for the audio version to come out. The final installment of the trilogy was a little of a bare to get through mainly because I've listen through my fair share of this author in the last few months, but I still enjoyed "The Naked God." It's still a good conclusion to the series. As a fanboy to these books, of course I would give it five stars.

    The story line had enough coverage to tie up any open questions and the reader was outstanding as usual from John Lee. Could had the audio been a tad bit shorter than 48 hours and 38 minutes? Not with Lee's voice. He has always been an outstanding narrator.

    I've exceeded my Peter F. Hamilton quota this year, but I'm always looking forward to the next one.

    "The ultimate Good vs Evil Ending"
    What made the experience of listening to The Naked God the most enjoyable?

    Finally a satisfying ending to a Sci-Fi meets occult story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Too many to remember


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr Lee is a narrator that you either enjoy from the start, grow to tolerate, eventually like or give up on and blame the author...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the hero gets to use 'Magic' too

    Story
    "If this book were cheese it would be swiss"

    I'm normally a fan of Hamilton's work and often recommend many of his series to my friends, This series will NOT be one of them. So many plot holes it reminds me of Swiss cheese. Too many implausible situations. The story is entertaining as always and the worlds are as fantastic as ever but there is just too many issues with the story and characters. Too many things that just don't make a lot of sense. I didn't hate the series enough to return it, but I didn't like it enough to recommend it either.

    "awesome series "

    Loved the series. Peter F Hamilton at his finest. Great arc, epic characters, perfect reading.

    The ending feels overly conjured given the build up, but it works. Will listen again in a few years just to see what I missed.

    "Hamilton is a legend."

    Another great set of stories from this author. Every time I finish one of his books or series of novels I feel remorse at leaving these characters behind. Hope he spins out more...especially in the commonwealth universe!!
