I've really enjoyed Hamilton's novels so when I discovered that I'd missed this one, I picked it up and eagerly started to read.

Unfortunately, it wasn't up to the standards of his other works. Set in the same universe as Pandora's Star, Judas Unchained and the Void series it is a story of the start of the rejuvenation process. It is set in the not too distant future and I was looking forward to seeing the steps that Hamilton envisioned between our world today and the world of Pandora's Star far in the future.

It never quite worked for me. Perhaps because the characters were all so self-centered that I couldn't connect with any of them.

It wasn't horrible, but it doesn't have the depth and richness of his other works.
