While I was back home in Canada, I finished Judas Unchained by Peter F. Hamilton, the sequel to Pandora's Star, which I wrote about here.

Judas Unchained
wraps up the story nicely, tying off all the loose ends. As is usual in a lot of books, the resolution is often not as interesting as the build up for a lot of fiction. Creating a mystery and making it seem important while it is still a mystery is a lot easier than coming up with something that is fully satisfying once it's fully revealed.

The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that if I hadn't read Pandora's Star only a few weeks before I read this one, I think it would have been very difficult to keep all the characters/locations/plot points seperate. This book continues right where the last one left off with no attempt made to re-introduce characters or situations or summarize anything that happened in the first book.
