I've read the Hellhole books that Kevin J. Anderson co-wrote with Brian Herbert. They were to date the best sci-fi books I had ever read. The Dark Between The Stars rates up there with them.
Each chapter is written about a particular recurring character and what is happening to them at this point in time. At the start they seem separate and disconnected, but towards the end it all comes together.
The book is the first of a new trilogy which follows The Saga of Seven Suns, which I have not read. Kevin makes mention of the Saga throughout this book, but it is not necessary to have read the Saga before embarking on this series.
I highly recommend this book and can't wait for book 2. Oh, and I'll be hunting down the Saga of Seven Suns too.
