I found this to be an exciting book, (without giving too much away) it opens with Flinx in a potentially dangerous situation involving the Aan, and I found myself thinking "Not another Flinx gets in trouble and gets rescued by the Aan story" (ala... "Reunion" and "Sliding scales") but it makes a sharp turn away from that line. Old friends and old enemies also turn up, and the story carries on at nice pace, with the usual amount of action you would expect from a Pip & Flinx novel. This is probably the longest Pip and Flinx adventure by quite a margin and seeing the size of the book made me wonder if it might be a bit slow, but there is a lot that happens and the story flows nicely.

All in all a very good ending to the Pip and Flinx series, for those following Flinx's adventures, it is well worth the read.
For those yet to get into Pip and Flinx this is, (by virtue of being the last book), obviously not the place to start, which is a shame because I feel it is one of the best in the series.

I have been following this story since the first books. I thought the first few books were brilliant. However although this is an ending, it has, for me, run out of steam a little. This is unfortunate. However it does the job and ends the series in an interesting way, tying up some loose ends. Maybe I am too old now to appreciate it.

Alan Dean Foster's long running Flinx series of novels has never been at the cutting edge of science fiction literature, but what they always have been is a nice, easy and fun read.

This concluding chapter in Flinx's voyage of self discovery and destiny to save the universe sticks to this tried and trusted formula.

Once again Flinx finds himself in a series of adventures and life threatening situations accompanied as always by his faithful mini-drag Pip, along the way meeting up with many characters, entities and enemies from previous books.

Anyone who has read any previous Flinx novels will know that this series makes strong use of Deus ex Machina type events (sometimes almost literally). Alan Dean Foster seems to acknowledge this himself when at the end of one chapter, Flinx is saved by a Thranx who arrives just at the right time to save him from certain death. I must admit that I laughed when Flinx greats the arriving Thranx with the line "Deus ex Thranxina".

If you are a fan of the Flinx series of novels, then you simply have to read this book as it does indeed bring closure to the series.

Make sure that you have read the entire series first though, as there is quite a lot of presumed knowledge in this book. A chronological reading order, which is not the same at the date published order, is available on the Alan Dean Foster website under the FAQ section and that really is the best order in which to read them.

I really do hope though that although this would appear to be the the last in the series, at least chronologically, that Alan Dean Foster continues to write more Flinx adventures in the future.

enjoyed the book and glad to see it come to a conclusion after all these years. Would still like to see how he fares after the threat to the commonwealth has now gone

A nice round up of the series. I found this series years ago at the the time after Star Wars started. It introduced me to this author. And there is still "Wiggle room!" for future visits.
