A Night Without Stars
Written by Peter F. Hamilton.
Narrated by John Lee
Bienvenido was a world that the Brandt Colony ships had crash landed on after they entered the Void and all their tech had stopped working. 3,000 years of dictatorship by the Captains led to a revolution after Nigel set off a Quantum Buster in the Faller Forest and got them expelled from the Void to…a deeper Void. At least their tech started working again in time for them to fight with the Prime and Faller invasions. Krysandra, the warrior Angel, can’t keep up with the idiocy of the planetary government.
Now Nigel’s backup plan of a cloned Paula Maio has engaged to rescue Bienvenido and the Fallers have accelerated their Apocalyptic time table. Maybe they’ll find some unexpected allies? As usual I thorough enjoy works by Peter Hamilton. The character voice ranges in this work may have stretched the ability of John Lee but I still enjoyed its telling. Overall five out of five entertainment units.
