Publisher's Summary

The high-action concluding novel of the Commonwealth Saga from one of the world's bestselling Science Fiction writers.
After hundreds of years secretly manipulating the human race, the Starflyer alien has succeeded in engineering a war which should result in the destruction of the Intersolar Commonwealth. Now, thanks to Chief Investigator Paula Myo, the Commonwealth’s political elite finally acknowledges the Starflyer’s existence, and puts together an unlikely partnership to track down this enigmatic and terrifying alien.
The invasion from Dyson Alpha continues with dozens of Commonwealth worlds falling to the enemy. The navy fights back with what it believes to be war-winning super weapons, only to find that the alien fleet has equally powerful weapons. How the aliens got them is the question which haunts Admiral Kime. Could it be that the Commonwealth’s top-secret defence project has been compromised by the Starflyer’s agents, or is the truth even worse?

The book is great! audio issues tho.

The performance of John Lee is again, on point, but it's plagued by low volume and some weird production decisions that don't allow it to reach its full potential

Any additional comments?

This was my first science fiction read, Pandora's Star being Part 1 of the story. Well written story line, paced nicely, all the elements, plots and sub-plots along with the characters brought together perfectly. I would highly recommend this book, and have just bought another, The Void Triology. Really great from start to finish.

The reading by John Lee is utterly brilliant, as usual. I lost count of the different characters, and John Lee gave each one a different distinguishable character and accent. Without being told which character was speaking, you knew.

After many books read by him, I am still in awe of his talent.

Very detailed and compelling

Don't buy this unless you already have the first part. On the other hand, if you have the first part, then this is a must.

Incredible detail - all the loose strings (and some you didn't realise were loose) come together in the end. Great story, told in a very matter-of-fact way tht is very believeable.

Some issues with this recording

Book is a bit long as with a lot of Peters books! But the audio was too quiet I have 100s of audio books and only a few have issues like this I usually play at max volume and if it's quiet knock it down 3 notches but this at max is only loud enough for a quiet room if there is noise you will have to concentrate on what being read to hear it

broken audiobook

the volume is too low and a huge chunk of chapter 12 is just missing. this is probably the most important part of the whole book and it's gone. last time I listened to this about 2 years ago it was fine. don't waste your money
