Overview

BONUS: This edition contains Peter F. Hamilton's short story, If At First...

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

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.)

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.
