Author: John Scalzi
This ebundle includes: The Collapsing Empire, The Consuming Fire, and The Last Emperox.
“The Flow” — the naturally-occurring highway humans use to travel between the stars — is breaking down. It’s up to a starship owner, a scientist, and the Emperox of the Interdependency to race against the clock in order to salvage political control over the remaining connected human colonies. Snappy dialogue, dynamic action sequences, and political skullduggery — The Interdependency sequence is a galaxy-spanning science fiction adventure for the ages.
The Collapsing Empire: Faster than light travel is impossible—until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field available at certain points in space-time, which can take us to other planets around other stars. Riding The Flow, humanity spreads to innumerable other worlds. Earth is forgotten. A new empire arises, the Interdependency, based on the doctrine that no one human outpost can survive without the others. The Flow is eternal—but it’s not static. When it’s discovered that the entire Flow is moving, possibly separating all human worlds from one another forever, three individuals—a scientist, a starship captain, and the emperox of the Interdependency—must race against time to discover what, if anything, can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.
The Consuming Fire: The Interdependency is on the verge of collapse. Emperox Grayland II of the Interdependency is ready to take desperate measures to help ensure the survival of billions. While Grayland prepares for disaster, others are preparing for a civil war. The Emperox and her allies are smart and resourceful, as are her enemies. Nothing about this will be easy... and all of humanity will be caught in its consuming fire.
The Last Emperox: Emperox Grayland II has finally wrested control of her empire from those who oppose her. But “control” is a slippery thing, and even as Grayland strives to save as many of her people from impoverished isolation, the forces opposing her rule will make a final, desperate push to topple her from her throne and power, by any means necessary. Grayland and her thinning list of allies must use every tool at their disposal to save themselves, and all of humanity. And yet it may not be enough. Will Grayland become the savior of her civilization . . . or the last emperox to wear the crown?
