There was a lot more to the Capone organisation/invasion and characters than I remember from the first time I read this book. It was great!
The human race are so unprepared for such a threat and are struggling to resist in any meaningful way. It's a terrible situation they find themselves in and many people are struggling to come to terms with 'the beyond.'
There's action, politics, lots of different points of view (the posessed and different factions within the human race, military/civilian) and a nice much more easy going story line with Louise and Genevieve as they try to make their way to Tranquility and Joshua, which I really enjoyed.
Dr. Alkad Mzu is causing a lot of trouble and lots of things happen within that particular slice of story line. I enjoyed learning about the 'plan' she had schemed 30 years ago and about the people who were involved at that time. It was also interesting reading about the survivors of the destruction of her world and the next generation who were not born on the planet and only knew about what happened 2nd hand.
Another great book by Peter F Hamilton. I enjoyed it very much.
If I was going to be picky I would say the first book Reality Dysfunction was slightly better. However both are 5 stars and brilliant books.
