Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Flinx is the only one with any chance of stopping the evil colossus barreling in to destroy the Humanx Commonwealth (and everything else in the Milky Way). His efforts take him to the land of his mortal enemies, the bloodthirsty AAnn, where chances are excellent that Flinx may be executed. And he must also seek out an ancient sentient weapons platform wandering around the galaxy and then communicate with it, a powwow that could very well fry his 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 that Flinx is flirting with disaster. Still, he’s no quitter. Now he’s going to need every ounce of his know-how, because he’s venturing to places 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.

Review:

"An entertaining, imaginative adventure with a likable protagonist." Library Journal

Review:

"Entertaining...Foster knows how to spin a yarn." Starlog

Synopsis:

From one of the most brilliant imaginations in science fiction comes Flinx Transcendent, Foster's thrilling conclusion to the series that began over 35 years ago — the epic adventures of Flinx and his flying minidrag companion, Pip.

sentina, May 30, 2012 (view all comments by sentina)
I generally don't like science fiction, but I very much enjoyed this one. The characters, human, alien, and companion snakes, are believable, complex, and engaging; the complicated and hard to imagine science of the very far future seems as ordinary as catching a bus across town and relatively easy to understand; there are humor and affection threaded throughout the drama; and the story is interesting and exciting, with a very satisfying story line and ending.

Plus, there are intelligent, thoughtful comments that raise the story from simple adventure to philosophical tale, such as, "When evaluating a sentient, you always have to get past appearance," and "Ignorance breeds hatred... education slays ignorance... knowledge is a more effective weapon than a gun."

This book helps us view ourselves as aliens to beings from other worlds, which is quite illuminating. Highly recommended.
