Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The highly-anticipated conclusion to the SF trilogy begun with Old Man's War and The Ghost Brigades.

Retired from his fighting days, John Perry is now village ombudsman for a human colony on distant Huckleberry. With his wife, former Special Forces warrior Jane Sagan, he farms several acres, adjudicates local disputes, and enjoys watching his adopted daughter grow up.

That is, until his and Jane's past reaches out to bring them back into the game — as leaders of a new human colony, to be peopled by settlers from all the major human worlds, for a deep political purpose that will put Perry and Sagan back in the thick of interstellar politics, betrayal, and war.

Synopsis:

The highly-anticipated conclusion to the science fiction trilogy that includes Old Man's War and The Ghost Brigades "combines taut military action with keen insight" (Library Journal) as Perry and Sagan are back in the thick of interstellar politics, betrayal, and war.

Anna Creech, February 11, 2010 (view all comments by Anna Creech)
This story moves along at the same clip as the first two books, and while it answers some of the questions about what's really going on in the universe, there are still too many things Scalzi has not yet explored for this to be the end (or almost end, but Zoe's Tale is pretty much the same story from a different perspective). In particular, the ending feels rushed and too neatly wrapped up. After all of the challenges and unexpected turns, it should not have been so easy. Hopefully, Scalzi will return to this universe and explain himself.
