The Interdependency, humanity’s interstellar empire, is on the verge of collapse. The Flow, the extra-dimensional conduit that makes travel between the stars possible, is disappearing, leaving entire star systems stranded. When it goes, human civilization may go with it - unless desperate measures can be taken. Emperox Grayland II, the leader of the Interdependency, is ready to take those measures to help ensure the survival of billions. But nothing is ever that easy.

As always, this author builds a great story with great characters and leaves you yearning for more, this time managing this even better than in the first book of the series. I seriously wish that the sequel woul have been longer. It's like when you are really really thirsty and only get a sip of cold water to drink. If the book lacks anything beyond additional chapters, then I dare suggest that the ending was too abrupt, that those issues that were solved (dropped story-lines) were solved too quick, perfect almost magicly. The new issues (story-lines) add great potential for a longer book series, but at the time they seem too removed from the immidiate development and not absolutely necessary. Since there is no word as to what's happening at End, one would at least expect to read about how the Interdependency prepares to face the challenge, but that is almost forgotten until the very end. Cleaning house can be considered as such, but given that society starts breaking apart already, the story seems rushed to me. Even the survival of the people in the isolated system is only brushed upon. So I don't get it why the author chose to miss out on all the drama, suffering and/or triumph of the more ordinary people.

Springtime in Styria. And that means war. There have been nineteen years of blood. The ruthless Grand Duke Orso is locked in a vicious struggle with the squabbling League of Eight, and between them they have bled the land white. While armies march, heads roll and cities burn, behind the scenes bankers, priests and older, darker powers play a deadly game to choose who will be king.

Good but lacking in comparison to First Law

I was looking forward to reading this new book set in the same universe as the First Law. And while I truly appreciate that it breaks with the past, unlike so many other authors, I can't help but feel that it is lacking something. The sequential killing for revenge makes it both repetitive and somehow doesn't quite develop the characters as in the original trilogy. It feels too direct and the sidestories too much like plain raw vegetables when you expected a complex dish.

It's a great series and I enjoyed it for several reasons. I enjoyed the start of the series more than the ending as I loved discovering how the universe developed after the initial premise. It was truly great how there are no loose ends and everything is explained by the intrinsic logic of the this universe as the story progresses. However, while each book needs something new to captivate the reader, I find that similar to most books it is overdone with 'in the nick of time' actions, happy coincidences and exponential growth of the main characters. The narration goes over plenty of dark and evil happenings, but I find that the story could have pursued the internal turmoil of the characters more and not brushed so easily over consequences. Given the nature of a dungeon, the slavery, the attitude of adventurers and crude politics, the story is extremely positive, while I would have maybe enjoyed it to be darker with an open ending.

This near-future trilogy is the first chance for English-speaking listeners to experience this multiple-award-winning phenomenon from Cixin Liu, China's most beloved science fiction author. In The Dark Forest, Earth is reeling from the revelation of a coming alien invasion - in just four centuries' time. The aliens' human collaborators may have been defeated, but the presence of the sophons, the subatomic particles that allow Trisolaris instant access to all human information, means that Earth's defense plans are totally exposed to the enemy.

Makes international relations and realism much more attractive in this Sci-Fi perspective. Loved it.
