Empty space can kill you as surely as what careens in waves or particles through its uncaring vacuum. There are two kinds of spacers - those who fear the void, and the dead. Rolee knows which one she is. First officer to a star trader with a love of exploration, she tries to protect her crew and her captain from themselves and each other.

But when that love becomes obsession, taking them from sketchy spice halls to ancient ruins on a world wracked by deadly storms, that becomes harder to do. Everyone has secrets, spacers maybe more than most. Part of a first mate’s job is to keep them or share them. Rolee has never had a hard time picking between the two, but when her captain’s love turns to a dark obsession she will have to choose.

Choose between her duty and her family, her promises and her secrets. Protecting everyone around her might not be possible in an environment so hostile it seems bent on killing them with every step they take. And there’s one thing she hasn’t thought of.

Rolee has to ask herself who’s going to protect her.

Because the dangers of the void are whatever’s there - including what human beings are capable of.


Enter the world of Star Traders as you’ve never seen it before - up close and personal.

This sci fi adventure is the first original fiction set in Trese Brothers Games’ Star Traders RPG. The hit game has inspired more than a million Captains to sail the stars. This story is only a small part of the immersive Star Traders universe. Explorers, Bounty Hunters, Merchants, and Pirates span the void, a million of them. They each have their stories, and this is one.

The Consuming Fire—the New York Times and USA Today bestselling sequel to the 2018 Hugo Award Best Novel finalist and 2018 Locus Award-winning The Collapsing Empire—an epic space-opera novel in the bestselling Interdependency series, from the Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi

The Interdependency—humanity’s interstellar empire—is on the verge of collapse. The extra-dimensional conduit that makes travel between the stars possible is disappearing, leaving entire systems and human civilizations stranded.

Emperox Grayland II of the Interdependency is ready to take desperate measures to help ensure the survival of billions. But arrayed before her are those who believe the collapse of the Flow is a myth—or at the very least an opportunity to an ascension to power.

While Grayland prepares for disaster, others are prepare for a civil war. A war that will take place in the halls of power, the markets of business and the altars of worship as much as it will between spaceships and battlefields.

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.
