Publisher's Summary

Following on from The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist is the second epic novel in the Night's Dawn trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton.
The ancient menace has finally escaped from Lalonde, shattering the Confederation's peaceful existence. Those who succumbed to it have acquired godlike powers but now follow a far from divine gospel as they advance inexorably from world to world.
On planets and asteroids, individuals battle for survival against the strange and brutal forces unleashed upon the universe. Governments teeter on the brink of anarchy, the Confederation navy is dangerously overstretched, and a dark messiah prepares to invoke his own version of the final Night.
In such desperate times, the last thing the galaxy needs is a new and terrifyingly powerful weapon. Yet Dr Alkad Mzu is determined to retrieve the Alchemist - so she can complete her 30-year-old vendetta to slay a star. Which means Joshua Calvert has to find Dr Mzu and bring her back before the Alchemist can be reactivated.
But he's not alone in the chase, and there are people on both sides who have their own ideas about how to use the ultimate doomsday device.

John Lee excellent as usual, but the plot rambles...

I really enjoy Peter F Hamilton on audiobook – I've never had the stamina for the actual books! I've listened to all of the Commonwealth series and this Night's Dawn seemed like the next obvious step.

Overall I have enjoyed parts 1 and 2, but I felt that this one could have arrived at its conclusion several hundred pages (hours!!) sooner than it did. That said, as usual it was a solid performance from John Lee agin and he really kept it moving.

Looking forward to Part 3...after a break!
