Peter F. Hamilton - The Abyss Beyond Dreams (2nd Hand Paperback)
The Abyss Beyond Dreams is the first volume of a prequel to the Void Trilogy.
The first volume in the Chronicles of the Fallers, The Abyss Beyond Dreams by Peter F. Hamilton, is an exceptional novel exploring the mystery at the heart of the Commonwealth Universe.
Fitting between the events of the Commonwealth Saga and the Void Trilogy, The Abyss Beyond Dreams is the first in an expansive duology, from the master of space opera.
To save their civilisation he must destroy it . . .
When images of a lost civilisation are 'dreamed' by a self-proclaimed prophet of the age, Nigel Sheldon, inventor of wormhole technology and creator of the Commonwealth society is suspicious. Especially as the dreams seem to be coming from the Void - an area of living space monitored and controlled because of its hugely destructive capabilities.
With it being the greatest threat to the known universe, Nigel is determined to find out if human life really does exist beyond its boundaries and if so, what the hell they're doing there. But when he crash lands on a planet beyond the Void he didn't even know existed he finds so much more than he imagined.

"The work of an author at the top of his game." - Science Fiction and Fantasy World.
"Abyss is perfect both for fans of Hamilton’s work and for new readers; the events of this novel expand on the story and setting of the Void Trilogy, but Hamilton gives enough background to make the story easy to follow for readers that are new to the Commonwealth. This impressive novel lives up to Hamilton’s reputation and gives the reader all they could ever want in a science fiction story and more: an alien landscape with magic-like properties, a fascinating and engaging plot, wonderful characterization, plenty of adventure, a dash of politics, and a story on an epic scale." - Goodreads Review.
