Temporal Void (Void Trilogy #2)

Author(s): Peter F. Hamilton

Fiction Paperback

Long ago, a human astrophysicist, Inigo, began dreaming scenes from the life of a remarkable human being named Edeard, who lived within the Void, a self-contained microuniverse at the heart of the galaxy. There, under the beneficent gaze of mysterious godlike entities, humans possessed uncanny psychic abilities, and Edeard's were the strongest of all. Equally strong was his determination to bring justice and freedom to a world terrorized by criminal violence and corruption.Inigo's inspirational dreams, shared by hundreds of millions throughout the galaxy-spanning gaiafield, gave birth to a religion-Living Dream. But when the appearance of a Second Dreamer seemed to trigger the expansion of the Void-an expansion that is devouring everything in its path-the Intersolar Commonwealth was thrown into turmoil. With the adherents of Living Dream determined to set forth on a dangerous pilgrimage into the Void, interstellar war threatens to erupt.With time running out, the fate of humanity hinges on a handful of people. There is Araminta, only now awakening to the unwelcome fact that she is the mysterious Second Dreamer-and to the dire responsibilities that go with it; Inigo, whose private dreams hint at a darker truth behind Edeard's legendary life; Paula Myo, the ruthless field operative of the Commonwealth, whose search for Araminta and Inigo is about to yield a most unpleasant surprise; and Justine, whose desperate gamble places her within the Void, where the godlike Skylords hold the power to save the universe...or destroy it.

Product Information

The second book in Peter F. Hamilton's bestselling Void Trilogy

One of the most popular authors of "space operas" in Britain today, writing vast doorsteps of novels that combine fantastic speculation with incredible detailed imagining of the lives we will lead after the 30th century ... Hamilton's story telling is crystal clear. GUARDIAN Even in the longest established careers, there should still be the potential for surprises. In Peter F Hamilton's case, it might just be that he has the same gift for fantasy narratives as he has for hard SF...hugely impressive. We've said it before but let's say it again: nobody does BIG SF quite like Hamilton. SFX Peter F Hamilton certainly doesn't work on a small scale. Such ambitions require formidable technical prowess and, with the second volume in his Void Trilogy, Hamilton again proves he's expert at conjuring widescreen space opera. But it's not just the epic at which he excels: the fantasy sequences...have an unexpected lightness of touch. An audacious collision of genres with real energy and verve: excellent. BBC FOCUS Maintains the quality and wonder that began with The Dreaming Void.
