Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Gareth L. Powell delivers an explosive conclusion to his epic Embers of War trilogy.

Low on fuel and hunted by the Fleet of Knives, the sentient warship Trouble Dog follows a series of clues that lead her to the Intrusion - an area of space where reality itself becomes unstable. But with human civilization crumbling, what difference can one battered old ship have against an invincible armada?

Meanwhile, Cordelia Pa and her step-brother eke out their existence salvaging artifacts from an alien city. But when Cordelia starts hearing the city’s song in her head, strange things start happening around her. What extraordinary affinity does she have for this abandoned technology, and how can it possibly help the Trouble Dog?

Fantastic Conclusion to an Epic Adventure!

A gripping space opera with engaging characters you won't want to bid goodbye. The audio cast is one of the best I've ever heard. Highly recommended.

Great series

Held off rating till I finished the series, now I have and I have thoughts. 1: wow, random out of no where transsexual storyline for no story related reason. From a really poorly developed new character with no storyline reasoning. Just random... like stuck on as a “look at me! LGBTQ for life guys! Buy my book cuz it’s LGBTQ friendly!” Sigh, whatever, good attempt at something... just not sure what. I’ve been the Ring barer for my aunt’s wedding to my aunt, my lil sis is bi, and super not going to count the friends I have that are LGBTQ out there so this is all from someone who doesn’t think it odd or anti-God or whatever other nonsense. 2: This is a dang good storyline, solid up’s and down’s throughout. Mostly well developed characters and plot. 3: really dig the cast giving different people voices. I love single narrator books and tend to shy away from cast of narrators but, this one worked really well. 4: if you dig space opera’s, you’ll dig this one... just roll your eyes with me reference #1 and enjoy the rest of the books.

All good, but feel cheated.

A nice continuance, but I feel cheated, that suddenly it turned into a super hero story with the intro if Cordelia. would have been better to stay on theme, instead of the intro if this long winded "Cheat the story" character. hope the next one is better.

Heavy handed used of the hand of god mechaics

The worst thing is time and again charachter decisions are 180 to the nature of the built up charachters, some so sudden you reread sections to be sure it's the same charachter acting. bad physics, unsypport charchter acts, and wet noodle of an ending and wrapup at the end.

Rushed

It feels as if the author got carried away in book 2 then realised he had only three books to tell the story in and introduced and rushed a character who should have been introduced sooner. So disappointing.

Brilliant conclusion to a universe spinning saga

I love Gareth's writing, the way every book focuses on the characters, their humanity (well, maybe not so much 'humanity' for Trouble Dog), his world building at such scale. It translated well into Audiobook format which was perfect for the commute. It's a shame it had to end, but looking forward to what Gareth starts next.
