Good continuation of Void series. We get to see more of Edeard's life inside the Void which is a lot of fun. Storyline in the regular universe continues to move towards the epic final confrontation we're all expecting from Hamilton.

This book was satisfying for a number of reasons, foremost (for me) being the number of questions it answers (at least partially). For instance:
* What is this Void thing?
* Why do the Living Dream believers want to get inside so badly?
* Why is it such a bad thing if they do?
* Whose side is Marius/Aaron/the Delivery Man on?
* What's the deals with Cat?

We also learn a lot more about the factions within ANA that seem to be steering this whole series of events. I'm not saying that there isn't a lot we still don't understand completely, but finishing this book helps you get a better idea of what's going on and why people are doing what they're doing. Getting through The Dreaming Void was something of a chore; this one is much better and I'm excited to read the concluding volume.
