The Last Colony, by John Scalzi

The Last Colony, by John Scalzi

Third in the Old Man’s War series, this installment tells the story of an experimental colony used as bait in a war. John Perry from the original novel takes center stage again, accompanied by Jane Sagan and Zoë from the sequel. Witty and imaginative, this volume is more about interstellar politics than the military action of the others. There was a bit of a deux ex machina near the conclusion and a few plot lines are left unsatisfied but overall Scalzi delivers another enjoyable romp.

First Sentence:
Let me tell you of the worlds I’ve left behind.
