Publisher's Summary

Following the astonishing The Abyss Beyond Dreams, Night Without Stars is the epic second and final part to Peter F. Hamilton's Chronicle of the Fallers.

The planet Bienvenido is in crisis. It has finally escaped the Void, emerging into regular space. But it's millions of light-years from Commonwealth assistance, and humans are battling the Fallers for control of their world. This rapacious adversary, evolved to destroy all sentient life, has infiltrated every level of human society - hijacking unwilling bodies so its citizens fear their leaders, friends and family.

A mysterious figure known as the Warrior Angel leads a desperate resistance. She's helped by forbidden Commonwealth technology, which gives her a crucial edge. But the government obstructs the Angel's efforts at every turn, blinded by prejudice and technophobia. As Fallers also prepare to attack from the skies, she might need to incite rebellion to fight this invasion. But the odds seem impossible.

Then astronaut Ry Evine uncovers one last hope. On a mission against the enemy, his spacecraft damages an unidentified vessel. This crash-lands on the planet, carrying unexpected cargo: a baby. This extraordinary Commonwealth child possesses knowledge that could save them all. But if the Fallers catch her, the people of Bienvenido will not survive.

    "Another sweeping epic"

    A great book from a master of space opera. The narration was also excellent, fitting the book well.

    If you don't like grab space opera than Hamilton is not for you.
    But if you do, the commonwealth series is possibly the best you can find. And this latest installment holds up wonderfully.
    Enjoy.

    "A bit rushed for my opinion"

    I like all of the author's books, and this is a decent conclusion to the previous book.

    but I fill it was stretched to much and concluded in a hurry.

    Excellent way to round off what has been a 7 book epic saga. Going back to Pandoras Star to listen to then all again now :-)

    "A Great Adventure"

    Peter F Hamilton via his superb Commonwealth series of books has become one
    of my favourite science fiction authors. I was blown away by the first part
    of the Fallers Chronicle sub-series of books that form part of the
    Commonwealth saga and eagerly awaited the final part. In short, Night
    Without Stars was an absolutely superb conclusion to this sub-series and
    every bit worth the wait.

    What I absolutely love about these stories is how Hamilton really takes the
    reader on a journey. We see so much and travel to so many places in the
    pages of this story that I find that the reader is immersed into the varied
    and vivid worlds so skilfully depicted.

    Anyone reading this review who has read the previous books in this series
    can rest assured that this one is a real cracker and ranks right up there
    with Hamilton's best work. Night Without Stars is an epic rip-roaring
    adventure that will keep you hooked right from the start. I was unable to
    put this book down and finished it in 3 days flat which translates to 8 plus
    hours a day of listening!

    Narration is provided by John Lee who has voiced most of Hamilton's books
    which is also a welcome consistency. lee's narration is either one you love
    or hate. Fortunately, I like it and although it can sound a little odd in
    the style of its delivery, Lee is superbly competent.

    Night Without Stars was a compelling, thrilling, exciting and addictive
    read and I would highly recommend it. My hope for the future is that
    Hamilton decides to continue the Commonwealth series so we can meet many of
    our favourite and much loved characters once more while throwing some new
    nasties into the mix.

    "Superb storytelling, great performance"

    John Lee is my favourite narrator by far. I have, in the past, bought books purely on the strength of him reading them. He does a superb job, as usual.

    Hamilton, similarly, ranks very highly in my author pantheon. He seems to have the ability to push my buttons and evoke an emotional response to his story. Again, he didn't let me down.

    Excellent.

    "Very bad narration"
    What disappointed you about Night Without Stars?

    The narrator is terrible. I was really looking forward to this book being released, and decided to try the audio book as opposed to the real thing or an eBook. However the narration is so poor I could only stand it for a couple hours before having to give up. Very disappointing.

    "Hamilton and Lee, perfect."
    What did you like best about this story?

    A fitting conclusion to the Commonwealth Saga.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    Everything. It's not difficult to see why he is one of Audiofile Magazines 'Golden Voices'. Rich tones, perfect for this series of novels.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I guess if this was a film it would need no tagline. After 200 hours of audiobook I would hope most listeners/viewers would know what to expect!

    "A great conclusion to the Chronicle of the fallers and an epilogue to the Commonwealth saga."

    Well written with good pace and a great delivery by John Lee.

    Definitely read the Abyss beyond dreams first and potentially the commonwealth saga stories also.

    "Shatneresque performance"

    The narration had a weirdly Shatneresque feel to it. It takes a while to deal with the strange cadence and breathy speech patterns that Mr Lee cooks up for this audiobook.

    Apart from rather too convenient set up for the conclusion of the story, a mostly entertaining listen.
