In "Starry Messenger", our world among many others is but a puppet on the strings of the 'Collective', the Degans and the God of all God's, Yar. Quentin awakens and is directed by the Synod to observe Earth's status. Why haven't the humans conquered the stars? For centuries humans have been given a leg up and it seems to all be for naught. Quentin's meetings with others like him leave him reeling in his convictions. What exactly is the end game for the Synod and is the way of Yar all Quentin had believed it to be? Will the chance meeting of a human woman and her son change everything for Quentin?
I guess you could say that Hamilton is one of my guilty pleasure authors. She's the exception to my no erotica rule and it's solely based on the fact that the characters and the worlds she creates are unlike any other in their uniqueness and creativity. She's a master at what she writes and every single book I've read from her captures my imagination completely and holds me long after I've read the last page and closed the book. She's one of the few authors whose books invade even my dreams.
