The Temporal Void
Will their heart's desire doom a civilization?
The Commonwealth is in turmoil, as a cult prepares for its pilgrimage into the Void. Breaching its boundaries could cause an irreparable rift in space. Yet these fanatics are unstoppable, convinced by the Void’s projections of a paradise within. An alien invasion fleet is also on the way, as the Oscien Empire attempts to take advantage of humanity’s confusion.
Investigator Paula Myo must hunt the Void’s latest prophet, in an attempt to stop her spreading its enticing visions. And at the heart of events is Edeard the Waterwalker, who lived long ago within the Void. Tales of his glorious story inspired the Pilgrimage – but may yet expose the Void’s true nature.
Following on from The Dreaming Void, The Temporal Void by Peter F. Hamilton is the second book in the 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
We've said it before but let's say it again: nobody does BIG SF quite like Hamilton
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.
