Giveaway! 'The Evolutionary Void' (Peter F. Hamilton)

If you're waiting to see how Peter F. Hamilton's latest series will end then this could be just the competition for you... When I say that though, I'm only talking to people living in the US as they're the only people who are allowed to enter this particular competition. Sorry about that everyone else...

Still with me? Brilliant! Here's the blurb for the book (possibly containing spoilers for those who haven't read this far...)

Exposed as the Second Dreamer, Araminta has become the target of a galaxywide search by government agent Paula Myo and the psychopath known as the Cat, along with others equally determined to prevent—or facilitate—the pilgrimage of the Living Dream cult into the heart of the Void. An indestructible microuniverse, the Void may contain paradise, as the cultists believe, but it is also a deadly threat. For the miraculous reality that exists inside its boundaries demands energy—energy drawn from everything outside those boundaries: from planets, stars, galaxies . . . from everything that lives.

Meanwhile, the parallel story of Edeard, the Waterwalker—as told through a series of addictive dreams communicated to the gaiasphere via Inigo, the First Dreamer—continues to unfold. But now the inspirational tale of this idealistic young man takes a darker and more troubling turn as he finds himself faced with powerful new enemies—and temptations more powerful still.

With time running out, a repentant Inigo must decide whether to release Edeard’s final dream: a dream whose message is scarcely less dangerous than the pilgrimage promises to be. And Araminta must choose whether to run from her unwanted responsibilities or face them down, with no guarantee of success or survival. But all these choices may be for naught if the monomaniacal Ilanthe, leader of the breakaway Accelerator Faction, is able to enter the Void. For it is not paradise she seeks there, but dominion.

Thanks to Del Rey, I have three copies of 'The Evolutionary Void' to give to three lucky blog winners. All you have to do to enter is drop me an email (address at the top right hand side of the screen) telling me who you are and what your postal address is. Your subject header will be 'I want to evolve!' :o) I'll do everything else.

I'll be letting this one run until the 22nd of August and will aim to announce winners as soon as possible afterwards.

Good Luck!
