Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Consuming Fire (The Interdependency #2) by John Scalzi

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is :  The Consuming Fire (The Interdependency #2) by John Scalzi.  I loved the first book in series – The Collapsing Empire (my review is here).

the consuming fireThe Interdependency, humanity’s interstellar empire, is on the verge of collapse. The Flow, the extra-dimensional conduit that makes travel between the stars possible, is disappearing, leaving entire star systems stranded. When it goes, human civilization may go with it—unless desperate measures can be taken.

Emperox Grayland II, the leader of the Interdependency, is ready to take those measures to help ensure the survival of billions. But nothing is ever that easy. Arrayed before her are those who believe the collapse of the Flow is a myth—or at the very least, an opportunity that can allow them to ascend to power.

While Grayland prepares for disaster, others are preparing for a civil war, a war that will take place in the halls of power, the markets of business and the altars of worship as much as it will take place between spaceships and battlefields. The Emperox and her allies are smart and resourceful, but then so are her enemies. Nothing about this power struggle will be simple or easy… and all of humanity will be caught in its widening gyre.

Due for publication October 2018

    I bet lots of people can’t wait for a new Scalzi book. I’ve not read any but I do own Fuzzy Nation now. Hope you love this!

    I should really read more Scalzi. I’ve only read his Lock In books.

    Book 1 was such an intriguing introduction that I can hardly wait to see how things work out now that all hell is breaking loose… And at least October is not so far away 😉
