Returning to Peter F Hamilton's Commonwealth universe in the 34th century, the Chronicle of the Fallers features Nigel Sheldon, the posthuman inventor of wormhole technology, who enters the hostile alien pocket universe known as the Void to find a way of destroying it.

But Nigel soon realizes that the Fallers also hold the key to something he'd never hoped to find - the destruction of the Void itself.
