Description

Julia Evans, billionairess owner of Event Horizon, has for 15 years been the power behind England’s economic renaissance – but now she’s in trouble. With her husband missing, and rival companies suddenly claiming to have acquired a technology impossibly superior to anything on Earth, she has no time to take notice of a single flower delivered anonymously. But this flower possesses genes millions of years in advance of any terrestrial DNA. Is it a cryptic alien message, or a poignant farewell token from her husband?

One man might discover its origin – but Greg Mandel will not be alone in his desperate search. And, as they both now discover, simply being first in the race isn’t nearly good enough when the Nano Flower begins to bloom.

Sci-fi mastery in full bloom for the nanoflower

Nanoflower completes the Greg Mandel trilogy. Compared to the first two installments, Greg is now comfortably middle aged, a father with 4 kids (and one on the way), and a respected and successful fruit grower. Over the intervening 15 years since Quantum Murder, Julia Evans has healed Royan, they've become lovers, and have their own children all while continuing to run Event Horizon.

The story unfolds with Julie receiving a "flower" that appears to be of alien origin and points to Royan who has been missing. Julie engages Greg to track him down. At the time, rumors of a next generation technology begin surfacing resulting in a second made scramble. Greg goes up against a psychopathic techmerc following the same leads for the flower and the technology. The action is fast and furious, and nearly nonstop. While the eventual resolution is not unexpected, the denouement is still surprising.

Hamilton really begins to flex his muscles as a sci-fi grandmaster with this tale. The resulting alien biology (and microbiology) is refreshingly original and well detailed. Computer personalities are extended and space mining and colony settlements are ongoing. At its heart, this is a love story with multiple couples, each re-enforcing the theme. Perhaps the only legitimate criticism is the introduction of some new psy powers for Greg that while critical to the plot could have nevertheless been at least alluded to earlier. The narrator also deserves kudos for a fantastic range of voices.

A great sci fi adventure

All three of these stories are great, fast moving stories set in a world it is easy to believe in that still has plenty of surprises. Peter Hamilton is a master and it is great to have these three stories online now also. Highly recommended, although I think the first one was the best one.

Not good

This thing went way off the tracks in volume 3. It was so predictable I had figured out the ending within the first few chapters, then the book kept trying to convince me with logic that made no sense that something else was going on. Despite how predictable it was though, the whole thing made no sense. The characters didn't have good reasons to think or behave the way they did. Terrible end to a great series. I'll just pretend this one doesn't exist.

Great story

Great story as I've come to expect from Hamilton. The only complaint I have is I swear quite a few time I could here the narrator turning pages and taking odd pauses. I think the editing could have been cleaned up a little more.

Brilliant! Peter Hamilton has never let me down.

Epic, the arch of the story keeps you riveted until the final sentence. Mr Longworth brings a consistent dynamic tone to the adventure.

Stupendous!

I am a huge Peter Hamilton fan, this series was as much crime mystery drama as anything. I really enjoyed picking up with the characters several years after the first two books and see the evolution in their lives and in the world. This story was never a re-hash though, very clever story-telling

Good book

Typical Peter Hamilton. Builds very slowly, then powers through to the climax. This one doesn't seem quite as polished as some of his other works, but still a good read.

Amazing series

I really enjoyed this series!! The characters are fantastic. I liked the narrators voice and the way he did different character's voices. But he would pause at odd times and you could sometimes even hear him turning the page. Very odd.
