Book Report: The Last Colony, by John Scalzi

The Last Colony is set in the Old Man's War universe. The Hero of Old Man's War comes out of retirement to lead a colony that the Colonial Union is establishing in defiance of the alien alliance called The Conclave. John Perry must keep his colonists alive not just in the face of armed alien opposition, but against the wishes of the CU, which believes the colony would be more use dead than alive.

Alright, I admit it. I'm a Scalzi fan.
I've read four of his books this year, and it's his voice that keeps me coming back. The Last Colony contains the perfect mix of complex plot, interesting characters and wit.

Ulysses Rating: 4 - I loved this.
