Inigo dreams of the sweet life within the Void and shares his visions with billions of avid believers. When he mysteriously disappears, Inigo's followers decide to embark on a pilgrimage into the Void to live the life of their messiah's dreams - a pilgrimage that the Raiel claim will trigger a catastrophic expansion of the Void.
Aaron is a man whose only memory is his own name. He doesn't know who he used to be or what he is. All he does know is that his job is to find the missing messiah and stop the pilgrimage. He's not sure how to do that, but whoever he works for has provided some pretty formidable weaponry that ought to help.
Meanwhile, inside the Void, a youth called Edeard is coming to terms with his unusually strong telepathic powers. A junior constable in Makkathran, he starts to challenge the corruption and decay that have poisoned the city. He is determined that his fellow citizens should know hope again. What Edeard doesn't realize is just how far his message of hope is reaching.
"A real spellbinder from a master storyteller." ( Kirkus)

Ambling story with no direction
What was most disappointing about Peter F. Hamilton’s story?
The story pops around several different points of view. By the end of this book, you have a sense of who the POVs are, and how they're related, but it takes forever to get there. It's really unclear who the antagonist and protagonist are... and that's never resolved. In fact, the main "character," the Void itself, remains an enigma. Mostly, it's a series of descriptions of radically advanced technology, peppered with political angst about an event that may or may not happen.
What three words best describe John Lee’s voice?
Scottish guy, what? --- I've listened to a couple of books written by John Lee, and whenever he needs another voice, he defaults to "deep voiced Scottish guy," which often doesn't make sense in context to the rest of the characters. He's not bad to listen to... but I kinda wish he didn't do so many "voices."
Do you think The Dreaming Void needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Dreaming Void is NOT a standalone book. It's a part of a trilogy... so if you like the premise, it might be worth investing in the whole trilogy. This first book was not satisfying as a single book, and really went no where. It would probably make more sense in context with the rest of its series.
