A story that covers it all from horror, aliens, political intrigue, biological robots, clones and technology beyond your wildest dreams, of yeah and a smidgen of sex, drugs and debauchery for good measure. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a while......I am pressing play on the next title in the series asap :)
One of my most favourite authors with a new book that is great, performed well with enough feeling to give the characters life, loved it
I love this series of books and have listened to all the others available and was delighted to see another arrive. This one is slightly different in that almost all of the story is within the void - no trips out to the commonwealth really aside from the start. The start of the story we see some of the familiar faces from the series, then this story introduces a whole new set of characters to get to know, aside from one, a favourite of mine - who plays a key role in the void. Personally I would be distraught to hear anyone but John Lee read these books now having invested so many hours with him I find him very easy to listen to. I can imagine at least another book in the series after this one. If you haven't listened to or read the others I would strongly advise you do, really needs all the background to make sense and it is a superb series of books. The story in general did bear a passing resemblance to the story of Edeard - which is not a problem for me, was just delighted to be back in the Void :)

PFH's writing and storytelling just keep getting better as the decades pass, and with this novel he's being more adventurous with the construction of the narrative too. It's a wonderful mix of hard SF and political fantasy, with a dollop of Ankh Morpork and Marxist revolution in too. Thoroughly enjoyed, as expected, and brilliantly narrated.

I enjoyed this book, much like Hamilton's other books. I would recommend reading the Commonwealth Saga and Void series before this one, although it might not be essential. This book is more of the same, except with less of the "converging storylines" that the previous books utilized (get comfortable listening to the same character's perspective for much of the book).
Love the narration, in line with the other series.
