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.

©1999 Peter F. Hamilton (P)2016 Tantor

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

    "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.

    Story
    "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

    "This series should be on every SciFi fan's shelf"

    Satisfying conclusion to perhaps the most engaging SciFi series I've ever read. This series rivals Dune in scope and Hyperion Cantos in intellectual rigor while remaining consistently entertaining. Hamilton takes no shortcuts and pulls no punches in crafting this compelling story. I was a little sad that it was all over when I finished it. I have no criticisms of these books. They were thoroughly enjoyable in every way.

    "Really enjoyed it"

    This is the best of the three books. If you made it through the first two, definitely listen to this one. Performance is great and editing is much better.

    "Crazy creative beautifully charactered"

    This series took forever to finish, with so many tangents and subplots. The characters were almost all fleshed out and engaging, with so much much attention to detail that made it never boring.
    There was something about all the plot twists that made it less than believable. A few of the crazy ideas that powered the story, while hard to believe eventually one got used to. There were just too many though which gave it more a dreamlike quality than a novel.
    And some of the decisions people made in the end seemed rather ridiculous. The main characters ability to be in the right place at the right time and make incredibly accurate decisions and super human abilities again made it less real for me.
    I enjoyed it throughout but wasn't fully taken in by it

    "Worth the time"

    I listened to all three books and am glad I stuck through the slower parts. The story is very well woven together with wonderful characters and a complex it that , like all really good sci-fi, makes you reflect on our own world. All in all thoroughly entertaining.

    Story
    "Literally the worst book I've ever read, but the reader was great."

    This is the book listed in the dictionary next to deus ex machina. The author makes rules and then violates them — constantly. The previous two books were bearable, but this one ended so stupidly.
