Hugo Award-winning author John Scalzi presents THE CONSUMING FIRE, the dazzling follow-up to "The Collapsing Empire" – a space opera in a universe on the brink of destruction.
About THE CONSUMING FIRE: The Interdependency, humanity’s interstellar empire, is on the verge of collapse. The Flow, the extra-dimensional pathway between the stars, is disappearing, leaving planets stranded. Billions of lives will be lost – unless desperate measures can be taken.
Emperox Grayland II, the leader of the Interdependency, is ready to take those measures. But it’s not that easy. There are those who believe the collapse of the Flow is a myth – or an opportunity for them to ascend to power.
