A nicely developed, complex sci-fi world interwoven with alternating chapters involving fairly classic fantasy world. Generally very well written, with interesting characters. The science is innovative and the politics are very well done. My only criticism is that the characters (as with most of space opera) tend to be so goal oriented that they come off a little two- dimensional. I will grant, however, that it would be exceedingly hard to explore the subtle internal conflicts of such a huge cast of characters. A great start to what I hope is a fun series!

Brilliant start to the trilogy. Has the signature feel of "Hamilton" for those who have read him before. Most annoying thing is having to wait so long for the next step.

The Universe Peter Hamilton envisions is detailed and complex, making this novel difficult to wrap your head around if you have not read his previous novels. Nonetheless, The Dreaming Void is a Sci-Fi masterpiece, and provides a solid foundation for a great trilogy.
