For the past five years, Jade Darcy has
not seen another human being. A computer-augmented mercenary, she lives
on the planet Cablans, a stopover point for traders from hundreds of
worlds -- and a good place to meet customers who need the services of a
skilled warrior.

She turns down what she considers a suicide assignment:
traveling to an enslaved world to assassinate one of its military
leaders. But then she learns there's another human being on Cablans --

MARY MASON was born in Bakersfield and has lived in California all her life. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from CSU Sacramento, and has worked counseling abused children. Her first husband was a member of “Hell Bent For Glory,” a pre-Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang, but she made the bikers check their weapons at the door and wash her dishes, in exchange for her fine cooking. Her philosophy regarding martial arts is, “My black belt beats your black belt, because my black belt’s in Smith & Wesson.” She is also a sound lady, mixing live music for bands—usually Chicago blues and S.F. rock, but also swing, folk, and both Country and Western.

She has run several Nebula Award banquets for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America as well as science fiction conventions, and founded the 1993 San Francisco WorldCon bid. In 2012 she co-authored Throwing Lead: A Writer's Guide to Firearms (and the People Who Use Them) with J. Daniel Sawyer, available at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/134903.

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.
