This is what Hamilton does best - intrigue, mystery, fantasy and sci-fi in equal measure. Superbly crafted and absorbing to read. The only big criticism is recurrent reference and dependence on his previous work - in itself this isn't a problem but it means you *have* to read Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained to really get the best out of it.
As is usual for Hamilton this is a lengthy, wordy volume but worth the extra effort.
