Following on from The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist is the second epic novel in the Night''s Dawn trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton.
A seemingly unstoppable force has entered our universe, and we are confronted by our most primal fear. Those who have succumbed to its horror have acquired godlike powers. Yet their actions are far from divine as they advance from planet to planet, leaving slaughter and mayhem in their wake. The Confederation Navy is dangerously overstretched, as whole worlds fracture and collapse. And a dark messiah prepares to invoke his own version of the final night.
In such desperate times, a powerful new weapon could cause yet more terror, but Dr Alkad Mzu is determined to retrieve the Alchemist - and complete her thirty-year-old mission to slay a star. However, others have their own ideas on how to use this ultimate doomsday device.
The Neutronium Alchemist is followed by The Naked God.
The third book in the The Night''s Dawn trilogy, The Naked God by Peter F. Hamilton is an epic conclusion to dramatic and compelling series. The Confederation is verging on collapse, unable to prevent the enemy from sweeping through the galaxy. And Earth''s defences have finally been penetrated, its giant domed cities destroyed one by one. As time runs out for civilization, those who fight on must join forces and form new alliances - but an enemy''s enemy isn''t always a friend. The war is desperate on all fronts, with battles fought on a scale unseen by humankind for six centuries. There are rumours that an ancient space-faring race faced this same threat to its existence - surviving with the help of the Sleeping God. If this mysterious and powerful entity truly exists, we may be able to find it. And if it really can avert the ultimate catastrophe, we may at last find hope. Joshua Clavert and Syrinx now fly their starships on a mission to find the Sleeping God - which an alien race believes holds the key to finally overthrowing the possessed.
