The Dreaming Void, The Temporal Void and The Evolutionary Void by Peter F Hamilton. You might call this book science fiction or space opera although it's done intelligently. The Dreaming Void is a very big book and it's an even bigger audiobook. The Dreaming Void launches a new trilogy set in the same universe as Hamilton's previous duology, Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained. "Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn't have any kind of prison. This book isn't quite as good as The Dreaming Void and the ending leaves room for a sequel. The Dreaming Void is set in the same Commonwealth universe as Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained, about 1,300 years after the close of the last book. I'll start with the audiobooks (apologies for the photo – my phone doesn't do screen dumps). Because of this, we had no delinquents. Hamilton's story is one of the better recent SF stories that I've experienced in any form, full of fascinating settings, situations, and ideas. Some old characters crop up, as well as some interesting new ones. When the technologically augmented telepath Inigo begins experiencing revelatory dreams, his shared visions ignite a mass pilgrimage to the Void, which some believe will trigger the apocalypse. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. For those who have read Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained, Dreaming Void, the first book of the Void Trilogy, takes place a millennium after the conclusion of the two “Commonwealth” books. A millennium and a half has passed since the Starflyer War depicted in those novels. Hamilton writes epic space operas which span multiple worlds and intricately developed characters. Now, with The Dreaming Void, the eagerly awaited first volume in a new trilogy set in the same far-future as his acclaimed Commonwealth saga, Hamilton has created his most ambitious and gripping space epic yet. For my January book I chose The Dreaming Void by Peter F.
