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.

Amongst the Best Contemporary SciFi

Contains a lot more fantasy elements than I'm usually interested in, but Hamilton does a great job weaving a believable futuristic universe, where high-technology species are searching to elevate themselves through technology.

Satisfying conclusion to an expansive universe

Great book, excellent performance. Only criticism is the lack of pauses between segments. Could be very confusing at times. Otherwise very satisfied.

A story, within a story, within a srory....

In this, the third installment of this trilogy, there is a winding up of the many stories. The various degrees of being imbedded are often surprising, as one cannot possibly guess them all. I also love that women play more than mere passive roles in each of the stories. This journey through the stars and time itself is brought to a satisfying completion. Yet, the story lines allow for my own speculation after the ending of the trilogy! I recommend this for anyone who likes their imaginations bent as much as time/space will allow!
