The Temporal Void

by Peter F. Hamilton
Release date: September 26, 2008
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fictionspace opera

The Intersolar Commonwealth is in turmoil as the launch of Living Dream's Pilgrimage into the Void draws near and, with the Ocisen Empire fleet fast approaching in a mission of genocide, an internicene war has broken out betweeen the post-human Factions over the destiny of humanity.

Defying the increasingly desparate Factions is Paula Myo, the ruthlessly single-minded investigator. Beset by foes from her distant past and colleagues with a dubious allegiance, she is losing a race against time, and the shocking truth of how far some people will go to determine the course of evolution is only just dawning on her. Meanwhile, somewhere in Colwyn City, Araminta is coming to terms with the discovery that she is the Second Dreamer - and therefore on the run from just about everybody.

At the heart of all this is Edeard, the Waterwalker, who lived long, long ago, deep inside the Void. He is the messiah of the Living Dream, and visions of his life inspire billions of humans. They worship these dreams of Edeard's crusade against corruption, injustice and violence, of his struggle to hold true to his convictions in the face of temptation and betrayal, of his lovers and his battles and of his extraordinary powers, which grow in strength daily.

Edeard's glorious, captivating story is the driving force behind Living Dream's Pilgrimage - a force too strong to be thwarted - and, as his triumph draws close, the true nature of the Void will finally be revealed.
