Publisher Description

WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER  • “An interstellar suspense thriller . . . sweeping in scope and emotional range.”—San Antonio Express-News

In the star-spanning civilization known as the Intersolar Commonwealth, twenty-three planets have fallen victim to the Prime, a technologically advanced alien species genetically hardwired to exterminate all other forms of life. But the Prime is not the only threat. The Starflyer, an alien with mind-control abilities impossible to detect or resist, has secretly infiltrated the Commonwealth and is sabotaging the war effort. Is the Starflyer an ally of the Prime, or has it orchestrated a fight to the death between the two species for its own advantage? Caught between two deadly enemies, the fractious Commonwealth must unite as never before. This will be humanity’s finest hour—or its last gasp.

Thank you

I became lost into the commonwealth. At times I had to force myself to stop reading. Such an outstanding work Very pleased that Mr. Hamilton did not leave out a thought provoking ending. I’m off now to the void trilogy. See you in a month.

A Masterpiece

Escape this world for a little time and welcome to the Commonwealth.

Doesn’t follow its own rules

In the first book an astronomer uses FTL travel (via wormhole) to observe the same event twice.

Then FTL ships get invented along with their travel speeds.

In this book that is ignored when convenient. Ships making FTL jumps in battle don’t see the same events play out twice, and they travel slower than the speed of light, taking 30s to go under one light second.

Also, every woman of note is hot, or at least very attractive except the porn star who is explicitly described as ugly.

There seems to be a lot of wish fulfillment in this whole series.
