The Collapsing Empire (2017) John Scalzi
John Scalzi does it again. Reels me in with great characters and plot. Not quite as interesting as the Old Man’s War but the premise of the “Flow” and how its demise might spell the demise of the 1000 year old interdependency. The new Empiro – Carthinia – Is up against it and she needs all the help she can get since her best friend and confidant is killed in a bomb at her inauguration. The dead empiros are stored on computer for her to talk to and Flow Physicist Mars Claremont comes from the last planet in the Empire (conveniently named End) with the information that will change everything - and lead to many more Interdependency books for Scalzi. Oh brother -not another series!
