It is AD 2329 and humanity has colonized over four hundred planets, all interlinked by wormholes. With Earth at its centre, the Intersolar Commonwealth has grown into a quiet, wealthy society, where rejuvenation allows its citizens to live for centuries. When astronomer Dudley Bose observes a star over a thousand light years away vanish. Imprisoned inside a force field of immense size, the Commonwealth is anxious to discover what actually happened.

As conventional wormholes can't reach that far, they must build the first faster-than-light starship. Captained by Wilson Kime, an ex-NASA astronaut a little too eager to relive his glory days, the Second Chance sets off on its historic voyage of discovery. But someone or something out there must have had a very good reason for sealing off an entire star system. And if the Second Change does manage to find a way in, what might then be let out?

About the Author


Peter F. Hamilton was born in Rutland in 1960 and still lives near Rutland Water. He began writing in 1987 and sold his first short story to Fear magazine in 1988. He has also been published in Interzone and the anthologies In Dreams and New Worlds, as well as in several small-press publications. His novels include the Greg Mandel series---Mindstar Rising, A Quantum Murder, and The Nano Flower---and the bestselling Night's Dawn Trilogy, The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist, and The Naked God.

He is also the author of A Second Chance at Eden, a novella and six short stories set in the same brilliantly realized universe, and The Confederation Handbook, a vital guide to the Night's Dawn Trilogy. Among his most recent novels are Fallen Dragon and Misspent Youth. British narrator John Lee has read audiobooks in almost every conceivable genre, from Charles Dickens to Patrick O'Brian, and from the very real life of Napoleon to the entirely imagined lives of sorcerers and swashbucklers.

He has won numerous Audie Awards and AudioFile Earphones Awards, and he was named a Golden Voice by AudioFile in 2009. Lee is also an accomplished stage actor and wrote and coproduced the feature films Breathing Hard and Forfeit.
