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. It´s a hedge against interstellar war-and, for the empire´s rulers, a system of control. The Flow is eternal-but it´s not static. Just as a river changes course, The Flow changes as well. In rare cases, entire worlds have been cut off from the rest of humanity. 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. ´´Fans of Game of Thrones and Dune will enjoy this bawdy, brutal, and brilliant political adventure´´ - Booklist on The Collapsing Empire ´´Political plotting, plenty of snark, puzzle-solving, and a healthy dose of action...Scalzi continues to be almost insufferably good at his brand of fun but think-y sci-fi adventure.´´ - Kirkus Reviews on The Collapsing Empire ´´Scalzi is one of the slickest writers that SF has ever produced.´´ - The Wall Street Journal on The Human Division The Interdependency Series 1.
