The last time I read a book by Peter F. Hamilton was around mid-April 2014, as I write it is the 2nd of April 2015, almost a year in between. The book was The Naked God, PFH does not waste any time faffing about before hooking you with his action packed opener and awesome world building. The Dreaming Void
is set 1,500 years after the end of the Saga (Judas Unchained.
(Five-ish stars, like 4.6 or something)
