Publisher's Summary

The Empire is splitting at the seams. The Great Houses refuse to obey the Throne World and have begun to conduct increasingly independent politics. Sensing the weakness of the central government, even the most loyal star systems of the Imperial Core are refusing to take orders from above.
Is this just a string of coincidences, or a coordinated campaign? Can a disjointed humanity rally around a strong leader to deflect an alien invasion? Who of the many figures in intergalactic politics can rise to this challenge? And is there a basis to the creeping rumors that some influential aristocrats have joined forces with the enemy and allied with the aliens?

Great book I'm sorry to see the end of the series

this book was absolutely fantastic. the unique twists and turns that it goes throughout the series is just cumulated here and the ending actually leaves you satisfied. While I wish there was more books in the series the author found a good ending point and stuck to it. Very solid but I'm certainly not going to complain if he decides to write more.

Moo review

Omg that twist. So you kinda get what's going on and then the author decides to take a dump on your brain and blows you. This is a definite read and I hope there's another one coming
