Overview

The Naked God (Night's Dawn Series #3) by Peter F. Hamilton

The Confederation is starting to collapse politically and economically, allowing the 'possessed' to infiltrate more worlds.


Quinn Dexter is loose on Earth, destroying the giant arcologies one at a time. As Louise Kavanagh tries to track him down, she manages to acquire some strange and powerful allies whose goal doesn't quite match her own. The campaign to liberate Mortonridge from the possessed degenerates into a horrendous land battle, the kind which hasn't been seen by humankind for six hundred years; then some of the protagonists escape in a very unexpected direction. Joshua Calvert and Syrinx fly their starships on a mission to find the Sleeping God -- which an alien race believes holds the key to overthrowing the possessed.


THE NAKED GOD is the brilliant climax to Peter F. Hamilton's awe-inspiring Night's Dawn Trilogy.

I read novels as entertainment, and enjoy most sci-fi for it's ability to project likely or alternate futures, combined with some interesting tech. The Naked God is the last of the Night's Dawn trilogy, and if you are looking for an escape to dive into, this trilogy is your vehicle. Hamilton creates vast, galaxy sized, intertwined and complex plots supported by innumerable main and supporting characters (probably 50+), frequently too many to remember. The Nook version of this series is great for it's ability to quickly let you search for characters who have not appeared for 150 pages to recall who they are. I've not reached the end yet of this last 1000+ page climax. But through 450 pages I'm enjoying it as much as the first two. There is so much here that the beginning of the series, back on Lalonde with the settlers, seems like it occurred years ago. The scope and size of the work makes the "Lord of the Rings" look like a novelette. Hamilton's universe is vast and convincing to the point where even the improbable (affinity, souls from the beyond, etc) become perfectly acceptable and even commonplace. The fact that your B.S. or "plot contrivance" alarm doesn't get triggered is a credit to Hamilton's story telling. As they say for a good movie, it provides an excellent suspension of belief that allows the reader to relate to what we would consider magical and mystical happenings. I won't rehash the plot here. If you enjoy some solid sci-fi/fantasy of the moderately "hard" varity, set in a convincing, well conceived and described universe with unique properties, pick up this or even some other Peter F. Hamilton (loved Pandora's Star as well).

To try and explain the journey this and the other books in the trilogy take you is impossible.
