Series: Fleet of Worlds
Book 3 of Known Space. Quite interesting as it brings books 1 and 2 together, along with the storyline from Protector. I thought it was pretty good, though the 'Endgame' section seemed way to brief/abrupt. Maybe I fell asleep or missed a section of the audio book, but it seemed like they went from despairing of no plan, to executing the final successful plan. Almost as if page count constraints crept up, and rather than shortening other parts of the book, they just finished quickly. Otherwise a great story.
