Up and Coming Reads | The Collapsing Empire By John Scalzi


I loved John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War series, they were riveting and fast paced stories intertwined with Scalzi’s trademark humour. I started his Redshirts novel which, while interesting I've found hard to finish. However The Collapsing Empire is his entry back into Space Opera and it looks promising.


As delightful and easy to read as Scalzi at his best (Redshirts, Old Man's War), with characters who are going to stay with you whenever you have to put the book down ... which you aren't going to want to do

The Collapsing Empire

by John Scalz


Does the biggest threat lie within?

In the far future, humanity has left Earth to create a glorious empire. Now this interstellar network of worlds faces disaster - but can three individuals save their people?

The empire''s outposts are utterly dependent on each other for resources, a safeguard against war, and a way its rulers can exert control. This relies on extra-dimensional pathways between the stars, connecting worlds. But 'The Flow' is changing course, which could plunge every colony into fatal isolation.

A scientist will risk his life to inform the empire's ruler. A scion of a Merchant House stumbles upon conspirators seeking power. And the new Empress of the Interdependency must battle lies, rebellion and treason. Yet as they work to save a civilization on the brink of collapse, others have very different plans . . .
