    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/04/06/...Let me start by saying I’m a huge fan of John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War series. Years ago when I was still mostly reading fantasy and wanted to get into science fiction, I’d made the initial mistake of startin...

    It is always enjoyable to get back to an author you've had so many great reading experiences with. It has been quite a while since Scalzi swam in the waters of Space Opera but he is still in fine form with this new series, The Interdependency.One thing I greatly appreciated in Old Man's War was the ...

    A rip-roaring story with a huge dilemma at its center. Scalzi delivers yet again!The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi is part of a new sequence (I can’t find details on how many books it will comprise of but I hope it’s lots!), which is due for release on 23 March. I received this from Net...

    A big thanks to Netgalley for this ARC!This novel marks a very strong return to Space Opera for Scalzi and I'll admit that I felt slightly trepidatious about it, after all, these tomes usually require a fairly substantial investment of time and energy, especially when contemplating an extensive book...

    Scalzi is accessible science fiction, and this is Scalzi (the storyteller) at his best. He’s improved at structuring a story over the years, and this is more evidence to support that claim. You can tell how much fun he’s having writing a space opera in a universe very separate from the Old...

    4.25ish stars.'Accessible' is a word I've read used to describe Scalzi's fiction a lot, and it's true. This feels like old school space opera, commercial and unabashedly traditional- with some modern sensibilities if that's not too big a contradiction. It's also basically a giant set-up for the fort...

    If you like political machinations, space, Scalzi's wit, and characters who are more asshole than charming, you'll enjoy this. It took me a little bit to get used to the general lack of fucks all of the characters give (and the amount of fucks the characters say), but I found myself rooting for many...

    Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.The Collapsing Empire is the opening salvo in a new science fiction series by John Scalzi. And if you enjoy space, cool ideas, political machinations, jaded characters, and the ever present Scalzi’s dry wit and sarcasm, then this novel will deliver exactly the...

    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.I won't discuss plot, at all, but I will say this much: like all great SF, and like the SF t...

    This is a wildly fun space opera. Witty, irreverent, even a little sexy. Lots and lots of world building and the society here, the Interdependency is full of intrigue. Incredible women characters which is very refreshing. I was turning the page so so fast and sad when the book ended. One flaw is tha...
