*2018 LOCUS AWARD WINNER OF BEST SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL CATEGORY*
*2018 HUGO AWARD FINALIST FOR BEST NOVEL CATEGORY*

"John Scalzi is the most entertaining, accessible writer working in SF today." —Joe Hill, author of The Fireman

The first novel of a new space-opera sequence set in an all-new universe by the Hugo Award-winning, New York Times-bestselling author of Redshirts and Old Man's War

Our universe is ruled by physics. Faster than light travel is impossible—until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field available at certain points in space-time, which can take us to other planets around other stars.


Riding The Flow, humanity spreads to innumerable other worlds. Earth is forgotten. A new empire arises, the Interdependency, based on the doctrine that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It's a hedge against interstellar war—and, for the empire's rulers, a system of control.


The Flow is eternal—but it's not static. Just as a river changes course, The Flow changes as well. In rare cases, entire worlds have been cut off from the rest of humanity. When it's discovered that the entire Flow is moving, possibly separating all human worlds from one another forever, three individuals—a scientist, a starship captain, and the emperox of the Interdependency—must race against time to discover what, if anything, can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.

I listened to the audiobook and both the narration and the story are pretty good. Leaves you on a big cliffhanger tho. Even so, it felt like a fairly complete story.

I absolutely love Old Man's War and it's sequels. Never read his other stuff, but I happily picked this up. Something to read after I finish the Bobiverse series!

Thanks op. I got the kindle version. Was able to use the switch to listening to actually listen to the audiobook version.

His other books are pretty good, and of course very funny as well. Agent to the Stars, I think, is his best non-Old Man's War book.

BTW, another suggested author/series is Bujold's "Vorkosigan" series of books.

He comes from an alternate universe where ebooks are usually over 400 dollars each, so anything under $336 is a real steal!

It's a cheap way to see if I like the author; can get previous books if I do.
