“An atomic blast of a yarn. Hamilton in peak form and absolutely not to be missed.” – Kirkus review of Night Without Stars
Peter F Hamilton is widely praised as a master of space opera – science fiction epics with galactic-scale threats – whose novels feature a seamless blend of big ideas and gripping action. His latest book, Night Without Stars, is set in 3326 and continues the story of the Commonwealth and the star-devouring Void. Embattled humans on an isolated planet face a terrifying alien threat in a story that has been praised for its edge-of-seat plotting and awe-inspiring ideas – if you like high-tech, high-stakes tension then this session is perfect for you.
