Reviews of Naked God, the (1999)

Review by kanjisheik (2007-06-28)
The Naked God is the concluding part of the Night's Dawn trilogy in which the Adamists and the Edenists combine forces to find out solutions- conventional or unconventional- to the possession that threatens humanity's existence.

One of the series' best features is the smooth blend of science fiction and horror. Its not often that a science fiction book can actually make you scared, but if any of them can pull it off, it's the Night's Dawn trilogy. Hamilton also manages the daunting task of keeping all characters equally interesting quite ably, making the temptation to skip to another character's chapter almost nil.

In short, The Naked God is absolute vintage science fiction: grand, interstellar space adventure crammed with lots and lots of ideas and action! Peter F Hamilton succeeds in writing a mammoth masterpiece.
