Description

Judas Unchained is the high-action concluding novel of the Commonwealth Saga from Peter F. Hamilton, one of the world's bestselling science fiction writers.

For hundreds of years the human race has been manipulated into starting a war that could destroy civilisation. As Chief Investigator Paula Myo hunts down the terrifying creature behind the ploy, the invasion continues and dozens of worlds fall to the enemy.

Admiral Kime orders a defence with war-winning super-weapons, only to find that their adversaries have equally powerful armaments.

How they got them is the question. Has the Commonwealth's top-secret defence project been compromised, or is the truth even worse?

From Publishers Weekly

09 January 2006 – Set in the 24th century, bestseller Hamilton's richly satisfying space opera is less a sequel to Pandora's Star (2004) than the second half of one dauntingly complicated, wonderfully imagined novel. The diverse human Commonwealth is fighting back against the implacably hostile mass-mind Prime, while discovering that agents of another hostile alien force are sabotaging war efforts. In a multitude of subplots, Hamilton adroitly leaps from the struggles of one engaging, quirky character to another. Meanwhile, the main action expands and the super-scientific weapons become increasingly terrible. Then the story shifts focus and presents a moral question: if it's now possible to wipe out the Prime, is it permissible to commit genocide? Hamilton demonstrates that humans not only can shape huge masses of data to their own ends but also can recognize when to stop doing so. Some of the people manage to transcend their small, personal concerns sometimes. The density of detail may slow readers down, but the distinctive characters and the plot's headlong drive will pull them along. In more ways than one, this two-part work is monumental.

Brilliant

Another brilliant episode in the trilogy

Awesome read

A very well thought out and written story, which blends a fantastical view of the future with the politics and commercialism that we experience today.
Kept me enthralled to the very last page.

Awesome

Nothing more to say!
