The Naked God
Written by Peter F. Hamilton.
Narrated by John Lee.
The third installment of The Night’s Dawn Trilogy wraps up the series in kind of a ‘Let’s get it over with vibe.’ I loved the story and how Mr. Hamilton interwove the character plots. It just seemed rushed in the end.
So, Louise and Genevieve are in the London archology being used as bait to lure out Quinn Dexter for B7-Charlie to deal with but he’s not really cooperating. They destroy an entire apartment dome scraper using a Strategic Defense (SD) X-ray laser and only manage to take out a look alike.
Meanwhile, Kiera hurts Al Capone real bad by maiming and torturing Jezebella then flees in a HellHawk with Echels in possession to fly to the Orion Nebula. They are trying to stop Joshua “LaGrange” Calvert from making contact with the sleeping god thus flinging them back into the Beyond.
It has lots of action, lots of thought provoking concepts and a real keen knack for sucking me in. Five out of five for addictive qualities, three out of five for kind of rushing the endgame (What happened to Charlie or Jezebella?) and five out of five for narration. This series is well worth the time and effort!
