Description

The high-action concluding novel of the Commonwealth Saga from one of the world's bestselling Science Fiction writers.

After hundreds of years secretly manipulating the human race, the Starflyer alien has succeeded in engineering a war which should result in the destruction of the Intersolar Commonwealth. Now, thanks to Chief Investigator Paula Myo, the Commonwealth’s political elite finally acknowledges the Starflyer’s existence, and puts together an unlikely partnership to track down this enigmatic and terrifying alien.

The invasion from Dyson Alpha continues with dozens of Commonwealth worlds falling to the enemy. The navy fights back with what it believes to be war-winning super weapons, only to find that the alien fleet has equally powerful weapons. How the aliens got them is the question which haunts Admiral Kime. Could it be that the Commonwealth’s top-secret defence project has been compromised by the Starflyer’s agents, or is the truth even worse?

The book is great! audio issues tho.

The performance of John Lee is again, on point, but it's plagued by low volume and some weird production decisions that don't allow it to reach its full potential

Bought more

Any additional comments?

This was my first science fiction read, Pandora's Star being Part 1 of the story. Well written story line, paced nicely, all the elements, plots and sub-plots along with the characters brought together perfectly. I would highly recommend this book, and have just bought another, The Void Triology. Really great from start to finish.

The reading by John Lee is utterly brilliant, as usual. I lost count of the different characters, and John Lee gave each one a different distinguishable character and accent. Without being told which character was speaking, you knew.

After many books read by him, I am still in awe of his talent.

Good book, terrible editing

Great story and a great performance butchered by the editors. The audiobook skips entire chapters, and it is impossibly to tell when the viewpoints change because of the lack of pauses. Audio levels are also all over the place. Skip this and read it yourself instead, the story is worth it.

fantastic story

other than a missing part, this book was great and the narrator also does voices to distinguish characters. Superb experience!

Good story - probably better to read

This is a massive piece of fiction with a lot going for it. Unfortunately, the narration doesn't do it justice. It's not that the narrator doesn't do a good job portraying the characters. Quite the opposite; I thought he did a great job of bringing the characters to life. The problem lies with the organisation of the reading. First, the narration suffers from weird shifts in tone and recording quality that I believe to be a result from the narrator taking a break from recording and starting up a while later. This means that the the narrator's tone of voice and the volume of the recording might switch at any time. Sometimes in the middle of a sentence. Second, given the large number of characters, it becomes confusing when the story shifts perspective between characters as the narrator does not mark this shift whatsoever. You might switch from the calm view of a mountain range to the center a frenzied battle in a heartbeat, without knowing that the two scenes belong to different characters. This is too bad, really, as this book features a number of bombastic action sequences featuring several main characters which become a confusing blur instead of the intense cataclysmic events that they try to be.

TL;DR: This is a good book that is marred by poorly structured narration.

Satisfying end of this 2-part saga

Judas Unchained continues where Pandora's Star left off. It follows the story through to the end, with a neat, not-very-rollercoaster-yet-satisfying-nonetheless climax and ending. All the characters you loved (and loved to hate) from the first novel are there, and every single one of the storylines is solved. Which is how it's supposed to be, especially after two of those immensely long novels. No annoying cliffhangers or unresolved plot points.

The narrator is still fantastic, and the breaks between sentences and chapters are still confusingly absent - as they were with Pandora's Star. If you liked that first part, you will like this sequel as well. The quality is the same and the stories are truly two halves of one saga.

Not a five-star novel for me (too long and detailed for that, which slowed it down) but I liked it enough to have bought the second saga as well (a trilogy in the same universe, but far into the future), starting with The Dreaming Void.

Recommend.

Fantastic story - terrible audio production

Somebody really screwed the pooch on the audio production here. Sound level uneven throughout many passages. No pauses between sub-chapters where POV changes.

I love this book, it’s my third reading of it, but whoever produced this audio, should be taken out back, and whooped thoroughly with a two by four.

Otherwise, the voice actor is terrific - he should be beyond mad at the producers, who destroyed his performance.

Book is awesome, this recordings volume is very very low.

Book is wonderful. This recordings level of volume is way to low. In a windy environment you cannot hear it.

Good but fluffy

The story and ideas are great, the character dialogues succinct and engaging but Hamilton spends too much time on exposition, describing stuff with too many adjectives. I can't remember the number of times I read "enzyme bonded concrete", I mean common, that is one too obvious strategy to fluff the page count. Still I would't recommend against getting the book because of it. Just know it if your focus start to were of track.
