60. (60) – The Consuming Fire, by John Scalzi

Another middle novel in a trilogy I have ranked as the lowest of the three (much like with The Shades of Magic and Mistborn trilogies), which shows how difficult these middle novels can be.  Of course, this book ranks 60th in my top 100, so you can tell how much I loved this series.  Scalzi continues to write incredibly readable, fun science fiction.

The Consuming Fire is a worthy sequel to The Collapsing Empire. The vast majority of the key players are back, and the plot once again moves at a rapid pace. Kiva Legos continues to be one of the greatest characters in science fiction, but we also get to see the Emperox grow into her role in new ways. The novel wraps up in a satisfactory way but leaves you wanting to know what happens next (which seems to be the goal for every middle book in a trilogy).
