"The collapse of The Flow, the interstellar pathway between the planets of the Interdependency, has accelerated. Entire star systems--and billions of people--are becoming cut off from the rest of human civilization. This collapse was foretold through scientific prediction . . . and yet, even as the evidence is obvious and insurmountable, many still try to rationalize, delay and profit from, these final days of one of the greatest empires humanity has ever known. Emperox Grayland II has finally wrested control of her empire from those who oppose her and who deny the reality of this collapse. But "control" is a slippery thing, and even as Grayland strives to save as many of her people form impoverished isolation, the forces opposing her rule will make a final, desperate push to topple her from her throne and power, by any means necessary. Grayland and her thinning list of allies must use every tool at their disposal to save themselves, and all of humanity. And yet it may not be enough. Will Grayland become the savior of her civilization . . . or the last emperox to wear the crown?"--… (meer)

This book does a good job bringing the trilogy to a close: The major plots are resolved, and the characters left standing at the end all get fitting endings. I really liked what the story did with Kiva Lagos, and with the relationship between Marce and the emperox. The scenes on the smuggling ship were great, as was the detail about the cathedral's code updates. ( )

I regret going with the audiobook version for this. The performance itself definitely is pretty great, but there's just something that I can't stand about the voice Wheaton uses for some of the characters.

Either way, the book itself is solid. The main issue for me was the exposition dumps throughout the first third of the book. Scalzi recapped details the previous books again and again and it was annoying. I also wouldn't really say the conclusion was all that satisfying. It was fine. But I wish it was less tropey and more final.

A fun read. I was disappointed that the most interesting invention of the last book, the mutant people on an abandoned space station, never made another appearance. None of the ideas were super exciting to me, but the characters were entertaining and the narration was a little tongue-in-cheek, in a good way. ( )

This is the third (and final?) book about the last days of The Intedependency, a space empire formed 1500 years ago based on the interstellar highways found between stars. Now that highway is crumbling and the system where no colony was ever allowed to become self supporting, is going to crash with it.

Like the two previous books, this is an easy to read young adult political science fiction, but where I was ok with the simplicity and deus ex machinas in the previous books, this one has taken it one step too far. The book is still easy to read but the need to actively suppress your disbelief does reduce the enjoyment somewhat. ( )

Great story well read. Just couldn't get enough of it! ( )

Punchy, plausible, and bittersweet; studded with zingers until the very last line.

Hugo Award–winner Scalzi knocks it out of the park with the tightly plotted, deeply satisfying conclusion to his Interdependency Sequence space opera trilogy (after The Consuming Fire).
