Long ago, a human astrophysicist, Inigo, began dreaming scenes from the life of a remarkable human being named Edeard, who lived within the Void, a self-contained microuniverse at the heart of the galaxy. There, under the beneficent gaze of mysterious godlike entities, humans possessed uncanny psychic abilities, and Edeard's were the strongest of all. Equally strong was his determination to bring justice and freedom to a world terrorized by criminal violence and corruption. Inigo's inspirational dreams, shared by hundreds of millions throughout the galaxy-spanning gaiafield, gave birth to a religion-Living Dream. But when the appearance of a Second Dreamer seemed to trigger the expansion of the Void-an expansion that is devouring everything in its path-the Intersolar Commonwealth was thrown into turmoil. With the adherents of Living Dream determined to set forth on a dangerous pilgrimage into the Void, interstellar war threatens to erupt. With time running out, the fate of humanity hinges on a handful of people. There is Araminta, only now awakening to the unwelcome fact that she is the mysterious Second Dreamer-and to the dire responsibilities that go with it; Inigo, whose private dreams hint at a darker truth behind Edeard's legendary life; Paula Myo, the ruthless field operative of the Commonwealth, whose search for Araminta and Inigo is about to yield a most unpleasant surprise; and Justine, whose desperate gamble places her within the Void, where the godlike Skylords hold the power to save the universe...or destroy it.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Marc | 2/20/2014

    " A pretty hard read. Really enjoyed the storyline outside of the Void, and totally hated the storyline inside the Void. Unfortunately, the inside-Void storyline takes up a much larger portion of the book. Not sure if I'll read the conclusion of the trilogy ... "

    " I was so looking forward to reading this and it seemed to suffer so badly from being the book in the middle. It really came across as a long device that moved the plot forward just a little bit. There were some plot points expanded from void 1 but,,, to few and we seem to be moving to the authors favourite get out of jail free card, a character develops god like powers... Ah well, I'll still read the next one, but I won't be buying the hardback. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Karen | 2/3/2014

    " I liked this book more than the first one. There are portions that seem to have gone a bit slowly, but when I reached the end of the book I realized why it was written this way. Anxious to read the next book, I want to see how all of the various life stories shape up. "

    " Even better than the first, really great, super smart and every character has such a great voice with humor every which way. "
