Servius  Heiner This is a great two book series, "Pandoras star" and "Judas unchained"

Scott Danielson (sddanielson) I liked them too! Haven't read any other Hamilton books.

Tamahome | 17 comments The Night's Dawn trilogy has some good stuff in it, but it's a huge commitment. Fallen Dragon is a standalone novel.

Larry (hal9000i) | 108 comments The size of them puts me off! It would take me forever to get thru a trilogy when the books are this big!!

Joseph (josephstillwell) | 1 comments I was completely hooked on the Commonwealth saga at the beginning of the year! I ended up reading the Void trilogy first by accident which made for some major spoilers when I got to the first two. I enjoyed most the depth of the universe Hamilton creates. I thought both series wrapped up a little too predictably (and yes, I realize I already knew the end of Judas Unchained!). Would love any suggestions on books set in similar universes, though not necessarily by Hamilton.

Eric (ericsfraga) | 2 comments I agree with most everything Robert says. The exception is that I found the Void series very hard going. Although I read the series, I really cannot remember what happened beyond the first book or two.

And Ozzie is brilliant!

Jeff Rudisel | 1 comments I loved Pandora
Judas was a good sequel.
The Void disappointing me.
I really got into the Night's Dawn, even with the resurrected soul part of the main plot. Some of the action scenes were the best things ever.
I loved Fallen Dragon.

Harsh Verma I liked the Void series far better than night's dawn which seemed like Christain eschatology to me. I do agree with Jeff that the action scenes were powerful but the overall theme put me off.

Oh yes nothing beats Ozzie!
