Pandora's Star and its sequel, Judas Unchained are two of my favorite sci-fi books (though they are really one book, split for publishing purposes). Do not be intimidated by the page count, the action is quite fast-paced. Great read.

This is excellent hard SF. Immortality paid for by pension contributions, alien mind control, colonies on new worlds, interstellar war, teenage angst, technology moguls are all knit together in a fast-paced story. This is part two of a two book series, but it can be read on its own. The start of the war and the characters are introduced in the first volume Judas Unchained.

Paul McFarland, July 31, 2007 (view all comments by Paul McFarland)
A huge multicharacter sweep of hard science fiction that harks back to the best of Heinlein in its detail of the future. In 2380, an astronomer discovers that the light from two distant stars has winked out in an instant. An investigation is launched ? complications ensue. Do not buy this book without having Judas Unchained. One book flows directly into another with a cliffhanger ending.
