A great continuation of the Old Mans War series. Scalzi manages to keep the whole idea fresh by writing a completely different story to the previous two installments.
Perry and Sagan alongside their adopted daughter are now left in charge of a new colony pretty much everyone including the CU wants destroyed.
The planning, the sparks of wit, the twists and the brilliant ending all made this a great read.
There are really no bad guys in these stories, its all groups with agendas, and this is what marks it out. Its too easy to make the human military bad in a scifi and its been done. Here its just one of the players making crappy decisions trying to keep an edge. Scalzi really does bring an added element to it all and this series just keeps getting better.
