The year is 3326. Nigel Sheldon, one of the founders of the Commonwealth, receives a visit from the Raiel—self-appointed guardians of the Void, the enigmatic construct at the core of the galaxy that threatens the existence of all that lives. The Raiel convince Nigel to participate in a desperate scheme to infiltrate the Void. Once inside, Nigel discovers that humans are not the only life-forms to have been sucked into the Void, where the laws of physics are subtly different and mental powers indistinguishable from magic are commonplace.

Review: Kewl cover.

This started out really good. Aliens chewing eating people, frantic escapes to the planet, body doubles of both the good and bad kind then PFFFT. Nada. Total scene frenetic story-line shift that was neither compelling or interesting. The process of getting through this novel quickly became a chore to the point it gets my lowest rating with no rating.
