Julia Evans, billionairess owner of Event Horizon, has for 15 years been the power behind England's economic renaissance - but now she's in trouble. With her husband missing, and rival companies suddenly claiming to have acquired a technology impossibly superior to anything on Earth, she has no time to take notice of a single flower delivered anonymously. But this flower possesses genes millions of years in advance of any terrestrial DNA. Is it a cryptic alien message, or a poignant farewell token from her husband?
One man might discover its origin - but Greg Mandel will not be alone in his desperate search. And, as they both now discover, simply being first in the race isn't nearly good enough when the Nano Flower begins to bloom.

"Epic conclusion for Greg Mandel Trilogy"
The narration was excellent of course. The editing could have been better. The occasional sound of page flipping is something you can live with of course since the story and conclusion are great. Top notch!
What a pleasant change not to have American voices and a really good book even if the trilogy is a little strange. Glands, gigaconductors and space ships all a bit weird but I really got into the characters. Although he is a bit too straight laced - he could definitely get up to more mischief with his talents!!
"More fun to travel than arrive"
And what an amazing journey it has been!
There is a cleverness in the way Peter Hamilton writes that always delivers subtle twists and unexpected consequences. This is a grand finale to an excellent trilogy.
Toby Longworth delivers another great performance bringing the characters to life.
"great chemistry...writer & narrator"
I loved it, good story that finishes of a great mini series well, I love the attention to detail and if i have any complaint its the lack of a good " proof reader" no one listened to the small background noises that slipped into the reading.
"Quite the finale"
Again another great book. It nicely capped off the end of the whole story. Well told, but as mentioned by another user, some of the editing (page turning etc) is a little off here and there. Altogether excellent.
