This book was the latest in the latest Commonwealth Universe by Perter Hamilton. If you have not read Hamilton's work before, his writing style is complex hardcore Scifi with lots of well developed characters and sub plots. Hamilton's Commonwealth books are not light reads. I think it took three attempts into the first of his books Pandora's Star, before I got hooked. After I finally got into it, I could not put them down. John Lee is a great narrator.
Two hundred and fifty years after the events in The Abyss Beyond Dreams, Bienvenido is facing a crisis. This was a wonderful story and I hated to see it end. Hamilton's writing always includes a bit of humor which I feel is a necessity in life as well as adding to a good story. Some of the characters have appeared in other Commonwealth books and Mr. Hamilton has done a wonderful job maintaining complex personalities through detailed and changing backdrops.
If you are reading this review and have not read any other of the Commonwealth books, I would recommend you start with Pandora's Star. Stick with it through the first couple hundred pages and you will find it worth the effort.
