THE LAST COLONY
This is a fantastic, eminently readable and more than
a little bittersweet end to Scalzi's Old Man's War trilogy. Perry is a likably sarcastic narrator whom readers should find both sympathetic and amusing. The plot is beautifully constructed, and the resolution of the series is heart stopping in its absolute rightness.
In order to ensure the survival -- against all odds -- of the last colony, John, Jane and their daughter, Zoe, are going to have to use every bit of information and intelligence they can get their hands on, and they're going to have to do it in the face of opposition from their own species.
