    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?

    Great enjoyment

    An enthusiastic and highly enjoyable second prequel book.

    I appreciate the reader, but the recording keeps varying, the tone changes abruptly between sessions, and this is quite disappointing for such a high end work. This did take me out of the story regularly. A problem with the whole series is the lack of pauses when the characters and places change, which makes makes it impossible to adapt and forces your brain to guess if there is a change of settings.

    However, this does not take away from a grandiose story, that, even if it's not up to the Following books, is quite lively and enjoyable. One detail that leaves me wondering is what amounts to a stereotypical obsession of the author for heterosexual sex. It seems quite excessive and limiting. It's too bad.

    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

    Great read

    If you could sum up Judas Unchained in three words, what would they be?

    Enthralling, gripping, brilliant

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Judas Unchained?

    all of it

    Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

    All the characters are portrayed brilliantly

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    Conclusion of an epic story.

    It was an epic journey, with flawless execution, a lot of fascinating characters, and arc. I will definitively listen or read it again.

    Better than Pandora’s star

    Second Book is more action packed than the first one and many questions that were left open in first book are answered.
    Definitely a must!!!

    This was sadly a waist of time

    This book is possibly good in paper format, and may even work as a tv-show. But as an audio book, it didn't work for me.

    Too many people and side stories that is difficult to keep track of, and at many times the story is dragged out with really uninteresting parts that last for 10-20 minutes.
    This combined with really awful editing that have made the switching between scenes so short that for most times you are not aware it has happened. You are just suddenly pulled out of the story because you realize that the scene has changed almost mid-sentence. When this happens, it took me a little while to get back to actually listening to the story again.
    And this is true between ALL story sections - in both books!
    Was there no quality control of this before releasing the audio books?

    And suddenly (I think it was about 10 hours before the end) they even changed the narrator for about 2 hours?? At least, that was what is sounded like. Totally different voice and audio quality of the recording.

    I will try to return both of these books - only completed them due to foolishly hoping for an increase of quality or that maybe it would be easier to follow all the different story lines after a while. It didn't.

    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!

    Too long.

    This book could have been half as long and twice a good. No more enzyme-bonded concrete for me.

    Engrossing Series with a bit of a Pacing Issue

    Loved both books and binged them. Hamilton’s imagination and attention to detail is second to none, even if Judas Unchained faces some pacing issues leading up to and throughout the finale.
    I quite enjoyed the narration, but for some reason they frequently spliced in lower quality bits seemingly recorded from someone’s bedroom. Someone needs their inserts overhauled.
    Right, off I go to start the void trilogy.

    Super Hörbuch seltsame Vertonung

    Ich habe alle Bücher von Peter F. Hamilton gelesen/gehört aber hier habe ich ein Problem mit der Vertonung. Immer wieder wird der Sprecher durch eine dumpfe Tonspur schlechterer qualität ausgetauscht. Es ist die gleiche gute Stimme nur finde ich es extrem Irritierend wenn der Ton sich plötzlich ändert.
    Ich möchte da jetzt nicht zu Viel Kritik äußern da bei so einem Goliath von Hörbuch natürlich mehrere Aufnahmesessions notwendig sind aber diese Wechsel sind nur mir geändertem Aufnahmeequipment zu erklären.

    Das pompöse Ende

    Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Judas Unchained besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

    Wie ich es nur bei wenigen Anderen Hörbüchern gesehen habe, versteht es Hamilton, Charaktere so handlen zu lassen, dass es einfach nur natürlich scheint, dass sie sich so verhalten wie sie es tun. Es macht das ganze viel weniger zu einer Geschichte als zu einer Darstellung, der man folgen und die man glauben kann während sie sich wie ganz natürlich vor einem entfaltet.

    Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

    Die beste Figur ist auf jeden Fall der Detective. Die Unnachgiebigkeit, mit der sie ihrem Gewissen folgt, stellt sie heraus, sogar noch über all die anderen wunderbar geschreibenen Charkatere der Serie.

    Welche Figur hat John Lee Ihrer Meinung nach am besten interpretiert?

    Erneut, die Frau Detective. Genial.

    Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

    Alle Szenen in denen Ossi die Sache in die Hand nimmt sind genial und jagen einem eine Gänsehaut ein.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Naja, auf jedenfall, sollte man vor dem Hören dieses Buches den Ersten Teil der Reihe kennen und sich nicht davon abschrecken lassen, dass am Anfang all die Charaktere so weit von eineander entfernt wirken und in solchem Detail beschrieben werden.

    A long but really good ending to a great story

    What a long and great story. Even though it was a bit long in some places, I really enjoyed this epic story with all the wonderful places and characters. As an audiobook read by John Lee it was great. I'm not sure if I would have been able to read it. :-)

    Sehr spannend

    Wer auf Transhumanismus und schöne neue Ideen in der SF steht wird dieses Hörbuch lieben. Ich war sehr traurig als es dann leider zu Ende war. Es ist nicht ganz so hart wie die Romane von Richard K. Morgan aber ähnlich packend.
