Publisher's Summary

Following on from The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist is the second epic novel in the Night's Dawn trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton.
The ancient menace has finally escaped from Lalonde, shattering the Confederation's peaceful existence. Those who succumbed to it have acquired godlike powers but now follow a far from divine gospel as they advance inexorably from world to world.
On planets and asteroids, individuals battle for survival against the strange and brutal forces unleashed upon the universe. Governments teeter on the brink of anarchy, the Confederation navy is dangerously overstretched, and a dark messiah prepares to invoke his own version of the final Night.
In such desperate times, the last thing the galaxy needs is a new and terrifyingly powerful weapon. Yet Dr Alkad Mzu is determined to retrieve the Alchemist - so she can complete her 30-year-old vendetta to slay a star. Which means Joshua Calvert has to find Dr Mzu and bring her back before the Alchemist can be reactivated.
But he's not alone in the chase, and there are people on both sides who have their own ideas about how to use the ultimate doomsday device.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

I continue to be surprised and amazed by the seemingly limitless enjoyment that I experience from these works. With many thanks to author, talent and production.

Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory

A great book completely ruined by poor editing. Making difficult to follow and painfully confusing. Put some gaps in this you plonkers. I'm going to score the performance as bad but I mean the editing.

Missing about 2 hours of the story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would include the WHOLE book there is two large chunks of Audio missing. It suddenly stops at 29:54 chapter 8 there is at least 30-40 minutes missing there. Chapter 22 ends at 07:29 missing at least an hour there. It is not complete and should not be released in this state. I could understand if it was a second hand book that I had picked up, but it is a full price professionally produced product. Not good enough!

A vast improvement on the first

Excellent evolution of the characters and solid speculative science. Improves on every aspect that was set up in the first book.

Terrible Australian accents, but very few outside of Australia get it right.
