In the early years of the twenty-first century, humans have advanced step by slow step into space. Constantly monitoring the heavens, they have discovered that certain asteroids have changed their orbits—and are on a collision course with Earth. Urgent action is required, but politics and a worldwide financial crash are getting in the way. To save humanity from disaster, two of Earth’s prominent families, a host of political movers and shakers, and dedicated pilots and space travelers of all stripes must band together.

From the government offices and factories of Earth, to the low Earth orbit station, to manufacturing facilities on the moon, all spacefaring humanity is united in an epic effort to save the planet from certain destruction and a new Dark Age—or perhaps even the extinction of all life on Earth.

Quotes & Awards

  • “At heart a romance of the high frontier, and its most gripping—and moving—parts depict the satisfactions, beauties, complexities, difficulties, and especially the dangers, of working in space…Falling Stars is, even more than the earlier books of the series, a reworking of some of the motifs of Heinlein’s The Man Who Sold the Moon, and like its illustrious ancestor, it is about not only vision but heroism and sacrifice. It’s old-fashioned, sentimental, and moving.”


  • “Epic…A politically astute, crisis-laden SF novel in a well-imagined future.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The conclusion of Flynn’s grand-scale near-future epic combines the rapid pacing of SF action-adventure with the subtle maneuverings of political intrigue in a panoramic drama of human courage and sacrifice. A good choice.”

    Library Journal

  • “Exciting…Sharply real characters…The mixture of personalities and ideologies guarantees tension, attraction, and enmity that will please fans of David Brin and Kim Stanley Robinson, as well as Flynn’s cohort.”


Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Josh Meares | 2/22/2013

    " A great book and a worthy conclusion to a good series. It does not have the novel ideas of Firestar, but the characters make the reading worth the time. "
