I was honestly really confused for a long time. This was not a story that worked in audio. The narrator was good, but the story needed to be read.

I was all what?

Ok so world dies in the universe and gets pulled into Driftwood, like a black hole thing? THey are all smashed together until they disappear. The concept was great and interesting.

There is someone called Last who is always around. The book consists of short stories that tell about people who have met him. Some good, some confusing.

I am mostly confused. Not a book for audiolovers.

Great concept, confusing to listen to. I will still give it an ok grade for the world she created, but it was honestly a book that I just did not like cos it was too confusing. 

Who is Last?

Fame is rare in Driftwood- it’s hard to get famous if you don’t stick around long enough for people to know you. But many know the guide, Last, a one-blooded survivor who has seen his world end many lifetimes ago. For Driftwood is a strange place of slow apocalypses, where continents eventually crumble into mere neighborhoods, pulled inexorably towards the center in the Crush. Cultures clash, countries fall, and everything eventually disintegrates.

Within the Shreds, a rumor goes around that Last has died. Drifters come together to commemorate him. But who really was Last?


  1. Huh... Now I'm totally intrigued and feel challenged - could I listen to this one and get it? Hahah.

  2. yes it looks a bit complicated

  3. Sorry to hear it was confusing to listen to.

  4. Gah. Bummer. You made need to try the print/ebook

  5. This sounds very different from her Lady Trent, so I'm hoping it will work for me. I am not liking the sound of the weird and confusing parts though, but still looking forward to checking it out.

    1. I could see how awesome she writes, but listening, I just could not

  6. Yep it kinda sounds confusing, maybe the book is better?

  7. That's too bad it was confusing. Maybe in print?

  8. Yeah, sometimes a complicated plot doesn't work well in audio. To be honest, though, I bet it'd be confusing in print as well, lol. :)

    1. Before I got what was going on I was all whaat? And then well not audio friendly for me
