The Last Emperox is the thrilling conclusion to the award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling Interdependency series, an epic space opera adventure from Hugo Award-winning author John Scalzi.
The collapse of The Flow, the interstellar pathway between the planets of the Interdependency, has accelerated. Entire star systems??and billions of people??are becoming cut off from the rest of human civilization. This collapse was foretold through scientific prediction . . . and yet, even as the evidence is obvious and insurmountable, many still try to rationalize, delay and profit from, these final days of one of the greatest empires humanity has ever known.
Emperox Grayland II has finally wrested control of her empire from those who oppose her and who deny the reality of this collapse. But "control" is a slippery thing, and even as Grayland strives to save as many of her people form impoverished isolation, the forces opposing her rule will make a final, desperate push to topple her from her throne and power, by any means necessary. Grayland and her thinning list of allies must use every tool at their disposal to save themselves, and all of humanity. And yet it may not be enough.
Will Grayland become the savior of her civilization . . . or the last emperox to wear the crown?

Emperox? Scalzi never learned to spell “Empress”? ( )
  snare | Dec 13, 2023 |
Damn you Scalzi! You did it again. You wrote a book that managed to break my heart while being humorous and thrilling all at the same time. How dare you?

The desperate logistics of planning for the end reach their climax in the conclusion to a space opera trilogy that began with The Collapsing Empire (2017) and The Consuming Fire (2018) in The Last Emperox. Without giving too much away, Time is running out for Cardenia Wu-Patrick, aka Grayland II, emperox of the planet-spanning Interdependency. We follow Cardenia as she struggles with a plan to save the billions who will suffer and starve in the wake of the collapse of the Flow, the extradimensional network connecting the planets of her far-flung empire, while her nemesis, Lady Nadashe Nohamapetan, continues to scheme against her. Meanwhile our favorite foul mouth lady Kiva Lagos is also still getting herself entangled with the affairs of various houses. How does this play out for her you ask? Read the book to find out for yourself.

I will say, how things eventually play out for Cardenia is shocking. The Last Emperox is full of twists and turns that were certainly a surprise. The way the story resolves itself to give almost everyone in The Interdependency a chance to survive the eventual collapse of the Flow readers will certainly find painful yet engrossing. With the end, there is hope of a new beginning.

The Last Emperox while being a bit bitter sweet—is fast-paced and fun, and will leave space opera fans thoroughly entertained. The book is tIerily timely as well, an exploration of how mercantile self-interest can drive some to view the death of millions as an acceptable loss (cough cough - reminds me of a certain current administration of country that should remain nameless - cough). Scalzi pulls off the perfect ending and conclusion to a beloved trilogy, with room left to still explore the universe of the Inter dependency. Kuddos!

For fans of: Game of Thrones, Space Opera, Iain Banks, Dune, Badass Women. ( )

A great ending. I was hooked from the get go! ( )
  cdaley | Nov 2, 2023 |
Fun. Fast paced politics - keeps you on your toes. Everything is falling part - literally the very connections between star systems that make the Interdependecy what it is, are failing. No longer supposition, the maths is supported by data. And so humans do what they do best - squabble and faction fight, everyone looking out for what they can keep.

Except for a the multitude who don't have that power, and a very few of the powerful who do actually care. Luckily for the masses Emperox Grayland II is one of them. Of course she is beset on all sides by the greedy venal and corrupt, but at least she has access the wisdom of the past through her Memory Room's ancestors, a true scientist and surprisingly the head of the church. The blasphemous Lady Kiva also turns to care about others, if only in the way of making sure she's also caring about herself long term too. Quite a few more main characters get killed off in assassinations of one form or another, and only some of them truly die.

It is somewhat rushed of an ending, but everything does come to a wrap - somewhat unusually for Scalzi. I enjoyed this, it is light-hearted science fiction dealing with heavy topics and several very cynical mindsets, but inventive too. I'm not overly keen on modifying concepts introduced in earlier books, and as a it's only a short trilogy it seems especially unnecessary, but it's part of Scalzi's writing style. ( )

Overall, I enjoyed the Interdependency trilogy, but I think this was the weakest of the three: about 100 pages are devoted to recapping the first two books. It also feels like the conclusion is a bit too neat and a bit too fantasy fulfillment -- the billionaire ruler who's just in it for herself is shown up, the climate change crisis, err, disruption of the flow is able to be mitigated so that everyone is saved and this actually is a nice salve to 2020, but it's not as deep and challenging reading as I wanted. Everything is wrapped up so neatly that it feels almost like fanfic, although it was satisfying and fun reading. ( )

Punchy, plausible, and bittersweet; studded with zingers until the very last line.

Hugo Award–winner Scalzi knocks it out of the park with the tightly plotted, deeply satisfying conclusion to his Interdependency Sequence space opera trilogy (after The Consuming Fire).
