Hamilton – Dogsalonbristol.co.uk The Intersolar Commonwealth is in turmoil as the Living Dream's deadline for launching its Pilgrimage into the Void draws closer Not only is the Ocisen Empire fleet fast appUs and increasingly desperate agents and factions is Paula Myo The Temporal PDFEPUBa ruthlessly single minded investigator beset by foes from her distant past and colleagues of dubious allegiancebut she is fast losing a race against timeAt the heart of all this is Edeard the Waterwalker who once lived a long time ago deep inside. The problem with most stories about Superman is that he’s just so damned invincible It almost becomes comic the fact that every two bit hood in Metropolis has access to Kryptonite – which is surely not something available by just strolling down the road to the chemist Now I really like Superman but this flaw springs to mind after having read the second volume of Peter Hamilton’s Void trilogy in that so much time is spent with the book’s own superman Edeard Edeard is a character from inside the void a legendary figure whose life is played out in shared dreams and inspires those of us who don’t live inside the void Just for those of you at the back the void is a phenomenon in space and all of us in this universe live outside of it Edeard is stronger than anyone else faster powerful and that makes him – for most of the book – uite dull Hamilton is no slack at writing up dramatic and tension filled scenes but for the large chunks of the book in which he appears the fact that he is so damned invincible means that it’s difficult to really feel nervous for him Surely he will just use his magic and survive I don’t want to give much away but at one point we are very reminiscent of an irritating moment in Christopher Reeve era Superman Yes talk of his arrogance and hubris do drop us the hint that something bad may be coming around the corner but for the most part we are just reading about a powerful hero being powerfully heroicA few weeks’ back when I wrote my review of the first of these books I said about the problems of only reviewing the first third The same holds true when it comes to the second third as well Characters are shifted into place the plot is developed but resolution is still far distant Hamilton is skilled at painting on a large canvass and at creating alien worlds and cultures that thrive in the reader’s imagination But given how all this ends yet the jury remains out on the whole

The Intersolar Commonwealth is in turmoil as the Living Dream's deadline for launching its Pilgrimage into the Void draws closer Not only is the Ocisen Empire fleet fast approaching on a mission of genocide but also an internecine war has broken out between the post human factions over the destiny of humanityCountering the vario. In this middle book of the series the motivations and goals of various factions starts to emerge the most notable revelation to me being what the Accelerator Faction is up to There are still uestions left but their involvement in the story is starting to unfold The fantasy story arc also continues to evolve as we see Edeard's powers develop and increase with new abilities emerging We also get some answers as to who is behind the attacks outside the city in the provincesAnd we get some major revelations about the nature of the Void and why it keeps expanding like it does There is a semi pseudo scientific explanation given which invokes the Conservation of Mass but to say than that would be spoileryI had a harder time getting into this than the last book I still enjoyed it but the pace slowed right down and I had to push myself to keep going during each reading session It felt like a middle book But at least I had a handle on who was who so it was less confusing I would have liked a bit pew pew in the scifi arcs We get a little bit but it wasn't as fleshed out as last book and I didn't hear any ACDC hammering in the background to the unleashing of technological Armageddon For example there is a part of the story where one of the characters boards and takes down a navy ship never saw the firefight just read about him going in and the next thing he's in control BooStill I am now fully invested in the story so I'm looking forward to the grand finale in the next book I'm expecting lots of fireworks lots of genetically and technologically advanced humans and aliens unloading heaps of ordnance and please Hamilton bring the rock'n'roll3 stars

The Temporal VoidThe Void He is the messiah of Living Dream and visions of his life are shared by and inspire billions of humans It is his glorious captivating story that is the driving force behind Living Dream's Pilgrimage a force that is too strong to be thwarted As Edeard nears his final victory the true nature of the Void is finally reveal. The Temporal Void A Draggy Middle Book that Indulges in TediumMuch like the Commonwealth Sagathis is a very long detailed imaginative and sprawling epic space opera that involves dozens of characters plots advanced technologies alien races ancient galactic mysteries nefarious plots and counterplots all told in an engaging narrative that doesn't get bogged down in exposition like a lot of other hard SF stories It's far entertaining than the grim future vision of Alastair Reynolds to which Peter Hamilton is often compared to The human characters here remain far human than the cold post humans of Reynolds which sometimes strains credulity as they regularly make contemporary cultural references and seem not so different from us despite being set in a galactic society set in the 31st century but that largely lies in how you would imagine future humans will be like The story is split into two main storylines a fantasy like coming of age story about Edeard a young man coming into his own powerful telepathic powers in a medieval society and another far complex future narrative about the search for a Second Dreamer broadcasting dreams of a utopian world within the Void a giant black hole that is steadily consuming the galaxy from the center outward Unfortunately this book spends much of its length dallying in the tedious romantic misadventures of of its increasingly powerful psychic Edeard and really indulges in some self indulgent and juvenile power fantasies that really takes away from the other storyline It certainly feels like he had a contract for a trilogy and was treading water and filling pages in order to set the stage for the third book when he could have cut this out and done better with two big volumes like the Commonwealth Saga
