Pandora's Star (Commonwealth Saga #1)
|Author:||Peter F. Hamilton|
The first part of the epic Commonwealth Saga, Pandora's Star by Peter F. Hamilton is a fantastic galaxy-spanning novel from the master of space opera. Earth AD 2329: Humanity has colonized over four hundred planets, all interlinked by wormholes. For the first time in mankind's history there is peace. Then a star over a thousand light years away suddenly vanishes, imprisoned inside a force field of immense size. Only a faster-than-light starship, captained by ex-NASA astronaut Wilson Kime, can reach that distance to investigate. But there was a good reason for sealing off an entire star system. And getting in may not be as difficult as stopping something from getting out ...The Commonwealth Saga concludes with Judas Unchained.
