Following the astonishing The Abyss Beyond Dreams, Night Without Stars is the
epic second and final part to Peter F. Hamilton's Chronicle of the Fallers.
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.
