Description

Can they escape the end of an empire?

Entire star systems, and billions of people, are about to be stranded. The pathways that link the stars are collapsing faster than anyone expected, accelerating the fall of civilization. But though the evidence is insurmountable, many are in denial. And some even attempt to profit from the final days of this golden age.

Emperox Grayland II has wrested control of the empire from her enemies. But even as she works to save her people, others seek power. And they will make a final, desperate push to topple her from her throne. Grayland and her depleted allies must use every tool at their disposal to save themselves and humanity - yet it still may not be enough.

Will Grayland become the saviour of her civilization . . . or the last emperox to wear the crown?

The Last Emperox is the conclusion to John Scalzi's Interdependency series.

A thrilling novel so in tune with the flow of politics that it would feel relevant at almost any time . . .

Scalzi continues to be almost insufferably good at his brand of fun but think-y sci-fi adventure -- Kirkus Reviews on The Collapsing Empire Rousing storytelling and satisfying intrigue . . . An engaging, well-crafted sci-fi drama -- SFX on The Collapsing Empire Provocative and unexpected -- Wall Street Journal on The Consuming Fire
