I recently finished reading (again) the Commonwealth Saga, by Peter F. Hamilton, and something struck me near the conclusion of everything :
Tarlo the Policeman and traitor, after destroying the portal to Half-Way, says roughly something about Qatux the Raiel being already on the way to Far-Away. This shocks Vic Russel, loyal Policeman, who asks Tarlo how could he know that.
Why is it part of the plan of the
Starflyer to bring the Raiel to Far-Away,
and why is it so important that it happens ?
