The Evolutionary Void (with bonus short story If At First...) Summary


The Evolutionary Void (with bonus short story If At First...) - BONUS: This edition contains Peter F. Hamilton's short story, If At First...

Exposed as the Second Dreamer, Araminta has become the target of a galaxywide search by
others equally determined to prevent—or facilitate—the pilgrimage into the Void. An indestructible microuniverse, the Void may contain paradise, but it is also a deadly threat. For the reality that exists inside its boundaries demands energy drawn from planets, stars, galaxies—from everything that lives.

Meanwhile, the story of Edeard, the Waterwalker, continues to unfold. With time running out, Inigo, the First Dreamer, must decide whether to release Edeard’s dangerous final dream. And Araminta must choose whether to run from her responsibilities or face them down, with no guarantee of success or survival. But all these choices may be for naught if the leader of a rival faction enters the Void. For it is not paradise she seeks there, but dominion.

    This book marks the conclusion of the Void Trilogy (The Dreaming Void and The Temporal Void). The book carries on in Hamilton's distinctive fashion, multiple story threads, hard science fiction, interesting alien characters, amazing space battles and a unique imagination for the evolution of humanity's future. Mechanically, I really like the way Hamilton weaves multiple story lines together - he is masterful in that regard. The only element i find a little tiresome is an overuse of people and place names that seem as they come from a current day U.K. phonebook. Every author has their biases about such things and perhaps it is a conscious nod to his homeland. Given his imaginative flair, I'm sure he could switch things up a bit if he chose. Just a great read if you've liked his other books and enjoy hard science fiction. Nice work, Peter!
