*FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND HUGO AWARD WINNER FOR BEST SERIES*

The stunning finale to the award-winning Wayfarers series by Becky Chambers, author of the beloved The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet.


When a freak technological failure halts traffic to and from the planet Gora, three strangers are thrown together unexpectedly, with seemingly nothing to do but wait.

Pei is a cargo runner at a personal crossroads, torn between her duty to her people, and her duty to herself.

Roveg is an exiled artist, with a deeply urgent, and longed for, family appointment to keep.

Speaker has never been far from her twin but now must endure the unendurable: separation.

Under the care of Ouloo, an enterprising alien, and Tupo, her occasionally helpful child, the trio are compelled to confront where they've been, where they might go, and what they might be to one another.

Together they will discover that even in the vastness of space, they're not alone.

Danael L Strange ,

I love this…so much.

When I finished the last page of this novel and realised it was the last in this series, I burst into tears because it was over. I have loved every stage of this journey.
Chambers’ ability to portray radically different forms of sentient life with their different psychologies, cultures, biologies and even manage to make each individual different from all others of their species without giant passages of exposition is a truly remarkable skill.
The stories are so intimate, so personal, yet still managing to fit within the grander genres of science fiction. No cosmic threats or world-saving here. In a good way, this novel reminded me of The Breakfast Club, but with even deeper characterisation.
There is nothing about this novel that I dislike…except that it ended.
