Overview

Exposed as the Second Dreamer, Araminta has become the target of a galaxywide search by others equally determined to prevent—or facilitate—the pilgrimage into the Void. An indestructible microuniverse, the Void may contain paradise, but it is also a deadly threat. For the reality that exists inside its boundaries demands energy drawn from planets, stars, galaxies—from everything that lives.

Meanwhile, the story of Edeard, the Waterwalker, continues to unfold. With time running out, Inigo, the First Dreamer, must decide whether to release Edeard’s dangerous final dream. And Araminta must choose whether to run from her responsibilities or face them down, with no guarantee of success or survival. But all these choices may be for naught if the leader of a rival faction enters the Void. For it is not paradise she seeks there, but dominion.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Peter F. Hamilton's Void space opera roars to a conclusion that pits Second Dreamer Araminta against his relentless intergalactic pursuers. The Evolutionary Void spins its magic, lacing its plots developments with deepening portraits of its main characters and the indestructible microuniverse at its center. A lyrical trilogy topper worth noting.
Publishers Weekly
Dense and dazzling with complex story lines, compelling characters, and universe-spanning drama, Hamilton's latest offering is a satisfying conclusion to the Void trilogy (The Dreaming Void; The Temporal Void). Araminta is destined to provide an alternate route to the next plane of existence, where time is mutable. Ilanthe is determined to control the path to enlightenment. Edeard can manipulate time for his planet and he tries to do so judiciously, struggling with the burdens of leadership, growing and grieving as he must lose what he holds dear in order to achieve the greater good. His efforts prove pivotal in resolving the battle between Araminta's flight for freedom and Ilanthe's grab for power. With intimate storytelling threads woven through a grand tapestry of epic adventure, the tale will be a struggle for new readers, but will captivate returning fans who can dive right in. (Sept.)
From the Publisher
"The author's mastery of the art of the 'big story' earns him a place among the leading authors of dynastic sf." —-Library Journal
Library Journal
As Araminta, the Second Dreamer, struggles with her decision to accept her responsibilities to the faction known as the Living Dream, the rogue Ilanthe, genetically enhanced leader of the Accelerater faction, continues her quest for absolute dominion through her attempt to enter the Void that lies at the heart of the universe. In an alternate world of dreams, Edeard must make a choice between impossible realities as his power to alter time leads to inescapable consequences. With a large and vibrant cast of characters and an epic plot, Hamilton's latest trilogy (The Dreaming Void; The Temporal Void) comes to a compelling conclusion. VERDICT The author's mastery of the art of the "big story" earns him a place among the leading authors of dynastic sf. A strong addition to any sf collection.

    more from this reviewer

    fans of the saga will relish the entertaining ending

    Having become known as the Second Dreamer, Araminta fears everyone hunts her for their own purpose. She believes some want her dead and others want to use her; both for the same reason; her ability to provide a path into the timeless Void where many believe Eden exists while other think pandemic destruction will occur.

    Ilanthe of the Accelerator Faction and the Living Dream cult want to control the gateway, which is Araminta so they can enter the Void. Others like Government Agent Myo search for Araminta fearing what she might unleash as the Void demands incredible energy from outside to feed it. Meanwhile Edeard the Waterwalker has fooled with time judiciously (in his mind that is) for his people, but his dreams that connect to the First Dreamer Inigo turn darker as he grieves loss caused by his maneuvers. Inigo via Edeard and Araminta via herself must make choices that will determine much of what is to come inside and outside the Void.

    This is an extremely complex and somewhat convoluted science fiction thriller as the intensity and tautness mount towards a showdown that could alter the universe. With an underlying concept that even when the monumental universe is at stake, the fully developed key cast members bring personal agendas and plenty of baggage whether they are heroic or malevolent. Although, one must read the previous two books in the Void trilogy (see The Dreaming Void and The Temporal Void) to dive into the Void finale entry, fans of the saga will relish the entertaining ending.

    Series of Awesome

    This series spans three novels and takes you on a wonderful journy through the universe that Hamilton created. I really enjoyed this series. Space opera and drama at its finest. Even after 1200+ pages across the three books Hamilton ties up all loose ends and finishes the trilogy in a satisfying manner.

    A true master of the novel who resists cliche.

    Pays homage to the great novelists of the past but stays original.

    Great fun, like all of Hamilton's stuff. The only downside is that I don't want it to be over. The massive length of his books emphasize the journey over the destination. He weaves an extraordinary number of characters, times, locations, technologies and ideas into his work. I've learned to slow down while reading his stuff and try to picture in detail what is going on. No rush.

    You need patience, but are rewarded for giving it. It may take hundreds of pages to finally be introduced to all (most) of the major characters.

    I'm only a modest fan of fantasy, but the dreams from the void turned out to be some of my favorite parts of the series. I'd love to see Hamilton's work turned into a movie series, though I doubt any budget short of that for Lord of the Rings could do it justice.
