NIGHT WITHOUT STARS

À propos

Following The Abyss Beyond Dreams, Night Without Stars is the epic follow-up to Peter F. Hamilton''s Chronicle of the Fallers duology.

The planet Bienvenido is in crisis. It has finally escaped the Void, emerging into regular space. But it''s millions of light-years from Commonwealth assistance, and humans are battling the Fallers for control of their world. This rapacious adversary, evolved to destroy all sentient life, has infiltrated every level of human society - hijacking unwilling bodies so its citizens fear their leaders, friends and family.

A mysterious figure known as the Warrior Angel leads a desperate resistance. She''s helped by forbidden Commonwealth technology, which gives her a crucial edge. But the government obstructs the Angel''s efforts at every turn, blinded by prejudice and technophobia. As Fallers also prepare to attack from the skies, she might need to incite rebellion to fight this invasion. But the odds seem impossible.

Then astronaut Ry Evine uncovers one last hope. On a mission against the enemy, his spacecraft damages an unidentified vessel. This crash-lands on the planet carrying unexpected cargo: a baby. This extraordinary Commonwealth child possesses knowledge that could save them all. But if the Fallers catch her, the people of Bienvenido will not survive.

Peter F. Hamilton

Né en 1960 en Angleterre, Peter F. Hamilton a débuté sa carrière d'écrivain en 1987. Il s'est très vite imposé comme l'un des piliers du renouveau de la SF britannique. Mais là où ses amis auteurs exploraient de nouveaux courants, Hamilton a préféré faire revivre l'émerveillement des grandes aventures spatiales chères aux grands auteurs de l'âge d'or : Asimov, Clarke et Heinlein. Dans ce domaine, ses cycles L'Aube de la nuit et L'Étoile de Pandore font référence. Il est le maître incontesté du space opera moderne !
