A wildly successful innovator to rival Steve Jobs or Elon Musk, Vivian Liao is prone to radical thinking, quick decision-making, and reckless action. On the eve of her greatest achievement, she's trying to outrun those who are trying to steal her success.In the chilly darkness of a Boston server farm, Viv sets her ultimate plan into motion. A terrifying instant later, Vivian Liao is catapulted through space and time to a far future where she confronts a destiny stranger and more deadly than she could ever imagine. The end of time is ruled by an ancient, powerful Empress who blesses or blasts entire planets with a single thought. Rebellion is literally impossible to consider--until Vivian arrives. Trapped between the Pride, a ravening horde of sentient machines, and a fanatical sect of warrior monks who call themselves the Mirrorfaith, Viv must rally a strange group of allies to confront the Empress and find a way back to the world and life she left behind.A magnificent work of vivid imagination and universe-spanning action, Empress of Forever is a feminist Guardians of the Galaxy crossed with Star Wars and spiced with the sensibility and spirit of Iain M. Banks and William Gibson.… (mere)

It felt like Gladstone wanted to go for a bombastic space opera here. And it is; there's lots of action and a team and all the trimmings of far future transhumanist ideas. It all feels hollow though. Especially the characters. The ideas too though. They're grand, but somehow also bland and boring. Generally I found this book pretty self-indulgent and also way too long. Not recommended. ( )

One of the most fun reads this year. Big honking space fantasy—the literary tradition of planetary romances, but I was most reminded of things like Saga and the Mass Effect series. Elon-Musky billionaire inventor is yanked into a far-future interstellar conflict, assembles a crew of space pirate queens, kung-fu technomage monks, nano-shape-shifters and more. A real romp with a slightly episodic nature, very imaginative and wonder-filled, spritely and sometimes humorous writing. Recommended. ( )

I loved this book. It made me wonder if Max Gladstone has been reading a lot of another of my favorite authors, Becky Chambers, because the first 80% or so reminded me in good ways of her books. (space travel! found family! learning how to be a person!)

And then the last 20% made me wonder if Gladstone has been also reading a lot of theology and psychoanalytically infused philosophy lately, because it was a bit of a theological/philosophical treatise on personality, identity, and meaning, only told by way of a rip-roaring adventure story climax.

Just . . . how? What a book. I think something about living in painful and difficult times makes (some) authors write beautiful, deeply humane books.

Highly recommended. ( )

I tried to read this book several times and just couldn't get into the story. With that said, it's not really my genre so I am not blaming the author as I know he has lots of fans. The first couple of chapters need to be more engaging for the average reader. ( )

Wow, that was epically awesome! Amazing word building with Gladstone's typical densly packed action and character driven rlots. Als, as usual, the world continues to expand and twist inunexpected ways at the story play out. ( )
