Pandora's Star

Publisher : Pan Macmillan
SKU: 9781509868575
R 250,00
Beyond the edges of inhabited space, the lights from a star go out. We desperately want to know why - but some mysteries weren't meant to be explored. Thrilling space opera from a science fiction master at work.
Pandora's Star is the first part of Hamilton's epic Commonwealth Saga duology - a fantastic galaxy-spanning novel from the master of space opera. At the edge of the galaxy something awakens - and it's coming for us Earth AD 2329: Humanity has colonized over four hundred planets, all interlinked by wormholes. For the first time in mankind's history there is peace. Then a star over a thousand light years away suddenly vanishes, imprisoned inside a force field of immense size. Yet who - or what - has that sort of technology? And what could this mean for us? Only a faster-than-light starship, captained by ex-NASA astronaut Wilson Kime, can reach that distance to investigate. However, what if there was a very good reason to seal off an entire star system? Also, getting in could prove easier than the worst possible outcome - stopping something else from getting out. The Commonwealth Saga duology concludes with Judas Unchained. 'The best book Hamilton has written in years' - Guardian 'Anyone who begins this won't be able to put it down' - Publishers Weekly
