really liked it

I was concerned that this sequel would fizzle out in the same way that the 'Night's Dawn' books did, but I was pleasantly surprised. After a slightly off pace and drawn out first act, the second act segued nicely into an all out action-packed finale to what is probably the best modern space-opera I've read.

Hamilton sci-fi takes commitment, but he does have an excellent grasp on how to build characters that the reader cares about (although it sometimes feels like you need a pen and paper to keep track of them all). I was pleasantly surprised to find that every character introduced in this story arc was developed and a suitable conclusion to their part was drawn.

The first commenwealth saga (Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained) is worth the time it takes to plough through it, and Judas Unchained is an excellent and satisfying conclusion to the story. Definitely recommended.
