The Last Emperox is the thrilling conclusion to the award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling Interdependency series, an epic space opera adventure from Hugo Award-winning author John Scalzi. 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.

The weakest link. But some cool ideas.

2 stars

The weakest of the trilogy. Packed full of wonderful ideas and no time spent in any of them. It felt very rushed.

I’m glad I read it. I’m the trilogy was good, but fizzled out a bit.

Might try some other Scalzi books and see how they go.

2 stars

Read if you enjoyed previous parts of the Interdependency series.

Good:
Lady Kiva and her dirty mouth.
Interesting revelations about the memory room.

Bad:
Same plot as the previous books: Nadashe plots to depose Cardenia; fails in the end.
Space's wasted on reintroducing old characters and retelling old storylines. More interesting bit about saving the Interdependency is left out.
* Cardenia's victory is rushed.

This is a superb conclusion to the Interdependency trilogy. I will happily admit that I stayed up till 2 am finishing it the day after I got it. Scalzi is amazing at making his characters come alive.

I certainly hope this isn't the last time we see this particular universe and these characters.
