The year is 3326. Nigel Sheldon, one of the founders of the Commonwealth, receives a visit from the Raiel-self-appointed guardians of the Void, the enigmatic construct at the core of the galaxy that threatens the existence of all that lives. The Raiel convince Nigel to participate in a desperate scheme to infiltrate the Void. Once inside, Nigel discovers that humans are not the only life-forms to have been sucked into the Void, where the laws of physics are subtly different and mental powers indistinguishable from magic are commonplace. The humans trapped there are afflicted by an alien species of biological mimics-the Fallers-that are intelligent but merciless killers. Yet these same aliens may hold the key to destroying the threat of the Void forever. As the Fallers' relentless attacks continue, and the fragile human society splinters into civil war, Nigel must uncover the secrets of the Fallers-before he is killed by the very people he has come to save.

  • In this utterly enthralling performance, Lee's narration evokes a bit of reverence and awewhile subtly building tension so undetectable that listeners don't notice their jaws agape, widened eyes, and curled toes until a sigh of relief escapes as the climactic moment passes.
