Publisher's Summary

Peter F. Hamilton's superbly imagined, cunningly plotted interstellar adventures are conceived on a staggeringly epic scale and filled with fully realized human and alien characters as complex as they are engaging. No mere world builder, Hamilton creates entire universes - and he does so with irresistible flair and intelligence.His previous novel, the acclaimed Pandora's Star, introduced the Intersolar Commonwealth, a star-spanning civilization of the 24th century. Robust, peaceful, and confident, the Commonwealth dispatched a ship to investigate the mystery of a disappearing star, only to inadvertently unleash a predatory alien species that turned on its liberators, striking hard, fast, and utterly without mercy.Coexistence is impossible with the technologically advanced aliens, who are genetically hardwired to exterminate all other forms of life. Twenty-three planets have already fallen to the invaders, with casualties in the hundreds of millions. And no one knows when or where the genocidal Prime will strike next.Nor are the Prime the only threat. For more than 100 years, a shadowy cult, the Guardians of Selfhood, has warned that an alien with mind-control abilities impossible to detect or resist - the Starflyer - has secretly infiltrated the Commonwealth. Branded as terrorists, the Guardians and their leader, Bradley Johansson, have been hunted by relentless investigator Paula Myo. But now evidence suggests that the Guardians were right all along and that the Starflyer has placed agents in vital posts throughout the Commonwealth - agents who are now sabotaging the war effort. Is the Starflyer an ally of the Prime, or has it orchestrated a fight to the death between the two species for its own advantage?Caught between two deadly enemies, one a brutal invader striking from without, the other a remorseless cancer killing from within, the fractious Commonwealth must unite as never before. This will be humanity's finest hour - or its last gasp.

"For flat-out huge widescreen all-engines-at-full I-dare-you-not-to-believe-it space opera, there is no one quite like Peter F. Hamilton." (Richard K. Morgan, author of Market Forces)
"Richly satisfying.... In more ways than one, this...work is monumental." (Publishers Weekly)

Wow what a sequel!!!

The story gets really good in this book the first was enjoyable but this one was great. both books are a little long and a little detailed for me, but that wont hold me back enjoying this book. Im downloading the next in this series. i hope he writes more. i think the narrator does a great job. although i wish there would have been a little more ozzy in this one.

Wild Sci-Fi Ride

I absolutely loved both books in this character driven & masterfully written series, Pandora's Star & Judas Unchained.

Multiple intertwined story lines & numerous memorable characters in this futuristic, space travel, murder mystery, alien invasion, technology driven Sci-Fi epic will keep you hooked regardless of its length of 37 hrs (PS) & 41 hrs (JU). In fact, I hated to see the books end.

Humans now inhabit planets throughout the universe via wormhole travel, and are not alone. They can also, theoretically, live forever. So needless to say, all sorts of intrigue and adventure ensue. Great fun. Highly recommend!

Beware, this is the second book of the story.

This isn't a review of the audiobook as I've not listened to it. This is just a warning that Judas Unchained is the second book in the story. Audible should have released Pandora's Star first for listeners to get the most out of this one.

4 stars, based on the paperback version.

Where are the rest of the series?

This is mainly to say James is right. Get all the books to the listeners! I started with to the \"Void series\" only to discover that they where part of a series. Audible - are you listening?
When will void book two be recorded?
