Peter F. Hamilton’s startling perspectives on tomorrow’s technological and cultural trends span vast tracts of space and time, his stories are as compelling as they are epic in scope, and yet they are always grounded in characters – human, alien and other – who, for all their strangeness, still touch our hearts and fire our imaginations.

Huge scale. Huge story. Complex characters. Massive descriptive sequences. All three books combine to make a truly epic tale. Perhaps a little too massive. Overall, an experience you won't soon forget.

AD 3580. The Intersolar Commonwealth has spread through the galaxy to over a thousand star systems. It is a culture of rich diversity with a place for everyone. Even death itself has been overcome. But at the centre of the Commonwealth is a massive black hole. This Void is not a natural artefact. Inside there is a strange universe where the laws of physics are very different to those we know. It is slowly consuming the other stars of the galactic core - one day it will devour the entire galaxy.

This book is good with an engaging story. Trademark complexity, multiple characters with fully detailed back stories make up this interesting listen. Good character acting by Longworth, some highly suspect accents don't detract from the listen, if anything they add to the experience. Don't buy if you are not prepared to buy the whole series though. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed it.
