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.

I read the Salvation segues the Void 1. Now half way through Void 2 I simply am losing interest. I like the characters and the action and developments but less and less, as it is disjointed, scattered, and I can’t keep up with the many various characters and their story lines. The weave is not holding for me. This is the first time I can remember eating to see how it ends, but not worth the investment, even to turn to the last chapter. So, I stop at 14 hours in. I know I could start again someday

My favorite Hamilton novel to date, John Lee does his usual excellent job with bringing this universe to life. Science fiction lovers who enjoy deep world building and massive stakes are in for a treat with the Commonwealth and Void series of books.

An enthralling story. Well written and thought out. Twists that make you think you know what's going to happen only to find something else entirely has been taking place.
