    2018 Locus Award, Best Science Fiction Novel

    Our universe is ruled by physics, and faster-than-light travel is not possible - until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field we can access at certain points in space-time that transports us to other worlds, around other stars. 

    Humanity flows away from Earth, into space, and in time forgets our home world and creates a new empire, the Interdependency, whose ethos requires that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It's a hedge against interstellar war - and a system of control for the rulers of the empire. 

    The Flow is eternal - but it is not static. Just as a river changes course, The Flow changes as well, cutting off worlds from the rest of humanity. When it's discovered that The Flow is moving, possibly cutting off all human worlds from faster-than-light travel forever, three individuals - a scientist, a starship captain, and the empress of the Interdependency - are in a race against time to discover what, if anything, can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Fans of Game of Thrones and Dune will enjoy this bawdy, brutal, and brilliant political adventure." (Booklist)

    "Scalzi has constructed a thrilling novel so in tune with the flow of politics that it would feel relevant at almost any time." (Entertainment Weekly)

    "Political plotting, plenty of snark, puzzle-solving, and a healthy dose of action…Scalzi continues to be almost insufferably good at his brand of fun but think-y sci-fi adventure." (Kirkus Reviews)

    interesting story line

    Containing the usual twists and surprises, the story is captivating, and physically adequate. I especially enjoyed Wil Wheaton.

    Very human politics in SciFi

    Cool story, I hated Wil Wheaton in StarTrek, found him mediocre in Big Bang Theory but loved him here. Fits perfectly here. Real fun.

    Star-Trek meets Game of Thrones...

    ...only this story is far less frustrating.
    Forget lightspeed: in this universe, shouting at people to solve a Problem actually works!

    Less action, more intrigue, good humor too

    Scalzi is a very interesting writer. The books are so different. In my humble opinion, his style improves, no 'he said,... She said...' it's however less and less action driven and rather a long developing plot with much intrigue. But I very much like it.
    Wil Wheaton is amazing, very versatile, very convincing, never annoying.

    Why Wil Wheaton? He's a terrible reader.

    The story is amazing, like any other book by Scalzi but OMG!!!! Why with Wheaton!!!!!! ? Terrifying how he takes all the immersion in a book out the window, he's voice doesn't have any colours and it was super annoying to have to bare with it because of the story.

    Endet mit Cliffhanger

    . . was ja an sich nicht so schlimm wäre, doch es ist eine angebrochene Geschichte, die überraschend mitten drin endet - kein Buch, sondern ein Stück Serie, das einfach abrupt endet.
    Abgesehen davon gut geschrieben und sehr gut gelesen von Will Wheaton.

    Why aren't you reading this book RIGHT NOW?

    Whoa! I never had THAT much fun since I was two years old and trying to hammer a square peg into a round hole! A clever plot and fast and witty dialogues that sometimes make you blush, sometimes make you burst out in laughter, but always leave you with the feeling that you just experienced something marvellous. It has a way of making you like even the evil charactars, just the same way an almost eight seasons long TV show, that never must be named again, did. But contrary to that one, this book is totally worth it. And Will Wheaton as narrator perfectly nails it. A match made in heaven. Caution: may contain sarcasm.
