    more from this reviewer

    Long time fans of the saga will relish the finish besides the obvious strong tale

    Flinx still recovers from the demoralizing events that have shaken his soul (see QUOFUM). Filled with self loathing and galaxy wide doubts he can do the mission he must do, Flinx with his loyal sidekick Pip prepares for the eventuality of the final showdown against the Great Evil. Adding to his growing uncertainty is the reality he is the only individual who can stop the Great Evil if he can avoid the Order of the Null assassins who need him eliminated to achieve their mission.

    With his confidence at an all time low and shrinking and on his way to the final confrontation, Flinx, with Pip accompanying him, stops off to negotiate a truce between the human Commonwealth and the AAnn; and. He also reunites with his beloved Clarity Held and his teachers Truzenzuzex and Tse-Mallory in hope that they give him inspiration, hope and a renewed fighting spirit even as he expects to go it alone in the last battle.

    Long time fans of the saga will relish the finish besides the obvious strong tale, the return of key players in Flinx's escapades seems appropriate for the end game. The story line starts a bit slow as the strange bedfellows need introduction, but once the plot accelerates, FLINX TRANSCENDENT never slows down until the final spin. With a nod to the homage my enemy's enemy is my friend, Alan Dean Foster provides a triumphant climax to a wonderful series as Flinx learns the same lesson constantly of be careful who has your back (besides Pip).

    The last & best

    This was the last of the series & the best one of all. A great light read. I love the author's imagination and way with words. It left me with a good feeling, that I hadn't wasted my time reading the series of 14. If you like light sci-fi, this is for you.

    Really enjoyed the book.

    If you like an adventure story that's just that, adventure, then you will like the Pip and Flinx series. This particular story is the end of the series (I really hope not). It has it's twists and turns and you really wonder how Flinx is going to get out of whatever trouble he's in. But I really liked the ending of this book. I had to laugh because it was (to me) very typical of my children. Please read the book. And others in the series if you can. It is helpful in knowing who some of the characters are, but not necessary.

    Perfect ending

    This was the perfect ending book to the series. It wrapped up a lot of loose ends and brought back a lot of old characters.

    Flinx and Pip - - Finally

    I have waited a long time for the capstone of the Flinx series and Alan Dean Foster delivered well. For those who are familiar with the Flinx and Pip series, this is a must read. Foster brings in references from every book in the Commonwealth universe. It was fun being reminded of books I had read in the past. And, he left room - maybe - for other books to fill in the side stories. I recommend this book to anyone who has read any of the Flinx books, but for those unfamiliar with Flinx and Pip, I suggest reading the series, starting with Tar-Aiym Krang. It is the first book written about Flinx and is the best place to start, even though there is a book earlier in the life of Flinx. Good read and contentment at the end.

    A dud by any other name.

    Mr. Foster seems to have a lost his "pizazz". Had this book been the first one there would have been no following. The characters were given insufficent background and for those that have been following the series, the personalities of Flinx's friends are weak compared to earlier books. It appeared that Mr. Foster just wanted to get it over with. That he did and that is probably the last Foster book I will read.
