Good but a little disappointing...,
This review is from: The Evolutionary Void (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed the first two books in the Void trilogy and have been waiting for what seems like ages for the final installment. A pity then that the story felt 'rushed' in a lot of ways, almost as if the author couldn't really think of a clever way to tie up all the story sub-plots so just mashed something together at the end in order to make it all 'work'.
It also suffers from the usual Peter Hamilton problem of invoking "Super-Aliens With God-Like Powers (TM)" in order to defeat the bad guys. I would have preferred the good guys to win by actually thinking of a clever plan rather than just gaining super-powers!
It's not a bad read though, and if you've read the other two books in the series then you'll want to know what happens in the end.

I think you are exaggerating this somewhat... it was actually quite an intricate plan by Gore that resulted in the 'good guys winning'. Its not the "Super-Aliens With God-Like Powers" ending that you make it out to be, Hamilton has came a long way with his writing with the Commonwealth series.
