Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kept me listening continuously

The book kept me listening almost continuously. Not just for John Scalzi's fans! Will Wheaton's voice acting is also very good, but there'd be more room for actually enacting the different voices (as, for instance, done by Ray Porter).

John Scalzi? Wil Wheaton? Audiobook at its best!

John Scalzi & Wil Wheaton are a dream team for me... when it's about audiobooks.

This story has a very nice sci fi touch, without getting to technical and I like that it breaks with the traditional sci fi right at the beginning.
The characters are non-standard, and I was very curious how all these people will fit into the story and how they will develop.

I read somewhere that this story has a "game of thrones"-feel and I can't deny it, although I think every book, that has houses, guilds, political intrigues and war fit into "GoT"-esque.
In the end it didn't remind me of GoT or "Dune" and I definitly want to know more about this specific universe and its unique problems.

Good Start of a Series

wish it was longer, feels a bit cliffhanger-y. But itching for a Sequel means its good.
