The way Flinx is feeling, that might not be the worst imaginable end. After years of searching for his father, he finally has - and must bear - the truth. And now he must also seek out an ancient sentient weapons platform wandering around somewhere in the galaxy and then communicate with it, a powwow that could very well fry his already frazzled brain. Then there are the oblivion-craving assassins determined to stop Flinx before he can prevent total annihilation.
With a future that rosy, it's no surprise he's flirting with disaster. Still, Flinx is no quitter, and he's got something else going for him - an uncanny ability to improvise and triumph (or at least survive) in impossible situations. He's certainly been through enough of them, and now he's going to need every ounce of that know-how, because he's venturing to places where the laws of physics fear to tread, where no one's ever been, to do what no one's ever done, and where his deadliest enemy is so close it's invisible.
BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Alan Dean Foster.

A series that I've followed for 26 years
I started reading about Flinx in 6th grade, 1983 I just happened to pick it up the first day it came in at the library at Humboldt Jr High and from there, I became a fast fan of Science Fiction. The last few books of the series seemed to be fillers then this. It brings the entire universe back together, loose ends are tied off and the great mysteries of the Commonwealth that are mentioned in other books are put to rest. This book is no lightweight. Good job Alan, I've been around for the long haul and I'm happy to have such a great ending to this road. Now it's time to get my son hooked on the series, thanks!

Any additional comments?
This was the first book that I read in the series and I was surprised to find out that it was the last of the series. I've enjoyed it so much that I'm going back to the beginning to hear about all of Pip and Flinx's adventures that lead up to the final book.
