"The Last Gifts of the Universe is a quietly profound story about grief, purpose, and our place in the universe—told with a touch of humor, and a dash of adventure. Come for the cat, stay for the story." —Sunyi Dean, internationally bestselling author of The Book Eaters

A dying universe. A search for answers. An adventure at the end of a trillion lifetimes.

When the Home worlds finally achieved the technology to venture out into the stars, they found a graveyard of dead civilizations. What befell them is unknown. All Home knows is that they are the last ones left—and whatever came for the others will come for them.

Scout is an Archivist who scours the dead worlds of the cosmos for their last gifts: interesting technology, cultural rituals—anything left behind that might be useful to the Home worlds and their survival. During an excavation on a lifeless planet, Scout unearths something unbelievable: a surviving message from an alien who witnessed the world-ending entity thousands of years ago.

Now Scout, their brother and their sometimes-fearless space-faring cat, Pumpkin, must race to save what matters most.
