Perhaps the Stars

Ada Palmer. Tor, $28.99 (608p) ISBN 978-1-4668-5877-0
Palmer’s spellbinding conclusion to her Terra Ignota series sees her previously utopian futuristic world plunged into war. It’s 2454 and, after the events of The Will to Battle, Mycroft Canner, master criminal and the series’ chronicler thus far, is nowhere to be found, leaving Ninth Anonymous to pick up the telling of his story and prevent the world from falling to pieces. As technology fails and Earth’s Prince is targeted in attacks, it’s up to Ninth Anonymous to forge new alliances and turn the tide of war. In byzantine, lyrical prose, Palmer chronicles cutthroat political maneuvering and imagines advanced weaponry that could change the course of the future. The well-built intrigue keeps the pages turning on the way to a satisfying ending. Series fans are sure to appreciate this high-octane series closer. Agent: Cameron McClure, Donald Maass Literary.
