Product description

Product Description

Following the astonishing The Abyss Beyond Dreams, Night Without Stars is the epic second and final part to Peter F. Hamilton's Chronicle of the Fallers.

The planet Bienvenido is in crisis. It has finally escaped the Void, emerging into regular space. But it's millions of light-years from Commonwealth assistance, and humans are battling the Fallers for control of their world. This rapacious adversary, evolved to destroy all sentient life, has infiltrated every level of human society - hijacking unwilling bodies so its citizens fear their leaders, friends and family.

A mysterious figure known as the Warrior Angel leads a desperate resistance. She's helped by forbidden Commonwealth technology, which gives her a crucial edge. But the government obstructs the Angel's efforts at every turn, blinded by prejudice and technophobia. As Fallers also prepare to attack from the skies, she might need to incite rebellion to fight this invasion. But the odds seem impossible.

Then astronaut Ry Evine uncovers one last hope. On a mission against the enemy, his spacecraft damages an unidentified vessel. This crash-lands on the planet carrying unexpected cargo: a baby. This extraordinary Commonwealth child possesses knowledge that could save them all. But if the Fallers catch her, the people of Bienvenido will not survive.

PRAISE FOR THE ABYSS BEYOND DREAMS

"Incredibly robust and exciting and rousing, sharing flavors of Jack Vance, John Wright, China Mieville, Orson Scott Card, and A. E. van Vogt . . . Hamilton's deployment of lots of grand super-science is utterly deft and convincing." Locus

"Engrossing . . . The characters, always Hamilton's strength, remain as distinctive as ever. Kirkus Reviews

"Everything one wants in sf great characters, mind bending stuff, adventure, politics, romance, revolution . . . just superb." Fantasy Book Critic

"The work of an author at the top of his game." Science Fiction and Fantasy World

This book is an amazing conclusion/addition to Hamilton's Commonwealth Universe. What an absolute roller coaster ride from the beginning to the end.

This is the second and concluding part of Peter Hamilton's Chronicle of the Fallers. It is set at around the same time as the void series but it is an entirely separate narrative. Having been expelled from the void along with the fallers who have been attacking them for centuries, the inhabitants of Bienvenido must battle with increasing threats not just from the fallers but from other unexpected sources.
The pick up some surprising allies on the way as their battle to survive and perhaps contact the rest of humanity reaches its climax.
I enjoyed this book very much, we encounter some old favourite characters as well as new ones and Hamilton's established writing skills really bring the story, plots, characters and setting to life.
Of course, this is the last book in the Commonwealth universe and you really would need to have read the rest of those books in order to get the most out of this story and if you have read those, you will not need me to tell you to get a copy of this fine book.

Any serious science fiction fan reads anything Peter F Hamilton writes and this book is no different but different. Does that make sense? Paula Mayo returns again after getting herself knocked of in the first Fallers book and she is as feisty as ever. Nothing much more to add except read it or miss out on serious SF credibility.

He's done it again a mind blowing ride through space and time couldn't put it down once I started reading it but didn't want it to end. Can't wait for another great book from this incredibly talented author I would have given it 10 stars if they were available

Classic Hamilton space opera, could not stop reading it from the first page onwards. Highly recommend as a read but only if you've read his other commonwealth novels.

Pure science fiction. Wonderful. Couldn't put it down. Shall read it again a classic. And it ends well with all the loose ends tied up nicely.
