Book Review – The Neutronium Alchemist
Melissa Lenhardt writes with passion and does not hold Alkad Mzu is determined to retrieve the Alchemist so that she can complete her year-old vendetta to slay a star. This means that Joshua Calvert has to find Dr. Mzu and bring her back before the Alchemist can be reactivated. But he's not alone in the chase, and there are people on both sides who have their own ideas about how to use the ultimate doomsday device. Editing bad, story great, better character voices.
Story was easier to follow this time and didn't get confused nearly as much as with book 1. It's because of the bad editing. Maybe if there was a 2 second pause between the story line changes, the listen would have been a lot better. Instead, the story line changes in what most time felt like mid sentence. It has taking me a while to finish the second book of The Night's Dawn Trilogy.
I hope that I'm not losing my interest in this series. The second book is just as good as the first. Whenever I am reading anything from this author, I need to switch off my other thoughts and be more aware in what is going on in the plot. It's a long one needless to say, but like all of his books, the story goes by quick and it feels like you are reading 10 stories into one. I'm really enjoying on how Peter F.
Hamilton is defining religions in a scientific matter. Reading this series has become a full time job. I can't wait to spend another 40 hours plus overtime in the last and final book of this series. This second book in the Night's Dawn series was even better than the first with more of the story being divulged along with John Lee's fantastic character voice talent. Really enjoyed the story, but the narration is terrible. Most characters sounded so similar and transitions so quick that it was very difficult to follow at times.
I hope they republish this book and give it the preformance it deserves.
Skip the first half, its chapter after chapter of wasted jumping around. This book needed more editing. The performance was good but the audiobook editing was horrible, one scene switched to another without even a pause in the sentence. One second you are a guy in the middle of a fight, then a girl looking out a window.
But not a hint to the reader that the scene had changed. And make it compelling.

A good story, ruined by redundant sub-plots. There are no transitions, from one storyline to the next, by either author or narrator. It makes for an unnecessarily difficult listening experience.

I did enjoy the accents performed by the narrator. I got through book one, but find that.

I find I don't care much what happens to these characters or their respective world-views. The writing is brilliant in places, lacking only a competent editor to make this series a five star winner. This book feels like your listening to 5 different audiobooks that all tie together.

- One thought on “Book Review – The Neutronium Alchemist”.
I can't believe it took this long for audible to recommend it to me! A mix of si-fi and phantasy expanded into a massive space opera that is hamiltons signature. I really enjoy the common wealth universe from PFH. This is set in a seperate universe but has many similarities so I am confused why I don't really care for this series. I find following the characters very tedious. Almost to the point where I want to skip the chapter if I don't recognize the character name immediately.
I feel something has been lost in the transfer from the written product. Your audiobook is waiting….
