Publisher's Summary

From one of the world's best-selling science-fiction writers....
The Intersolar Commonwealth is in turmoil as the Living Dream’s deadline for launching its Pilgrimage into the Void draws closer. Not only is the Ocisen Empire fleet fast approaching on a mission of genocide, but also an internecine war has broken out between the post-human factions over the destiny of humanity.
Countering the various and increasingly desperate agents and factions is Paula Myo, a ruthlessly single-minded investigator, beset by foes from her distant past and colleagues of dubious allegiance...but she is fast losing a race against time.
At the heart of all this is Edeard the Waterwalker, who once lived a long time ago deep inside the Void. He is the messiah of Living Dream, and visions of his life are shared by, and inspire billions of humans. It is his glorious, captivating story that is the driving force behind Living Dream’s Pilgrimage, a force that is too strong to be thwarted. As Edeard nears his final victory the true nature of the Void is finally revealed.

Great book from a fantastic author

I loved Pandora's star. I still rate it amongst the best book's I've ever read, but I didn't like Judas Unchained. It didn't engage me much. I was a bit concerned the same things would happen here. I loved the Dreaming Void, and the characters and progression they (and The Commonwealth) had made in the intervening centuries. Thankfully, it didn't disappoint.

The narrator of this book is John Lee, a favourite of mine - albeit from non-fiction books - and he comes in for some unfair criticism in other reviews. Although he gets off to a slightly shaky start, it quickly gets much better, and I actually preferred his style to the one adopted by Toby Longworth, who tried to give voices to every character in The Dreaming Void and ended up with some rather dubious accents. The only criticism I have is the inconsistent pronunciation of names. One of the central characters and a key location are named differently in the books, which I found irritating.
