I've been really enjoying my time in this universe and I'm really hoping that this isn't the end. If it is though, this is an ending I can live with. Things are still fraught between the Earth, the Colonial Union, and the Conclave but, as usual, things are getting worse and the title of the book is not a misnomer. Not directly anyway and not in the usual way. The book summary lets you to believe this is primarily Harry Wilson's story again and while he does feature prominently there are other stories here. Other points of view from people we wouldn't necessarily hear from. I quite enjoyed a look into the Conclave's side of things, other CDF soldiers as they put out brushfire after brushfire, and a brain in a box (not kidding and not a spoiler; it's the first sentence).

Things get worse while being believable and the teamwork, forced or otherwise, involved in reaching a goal is fantastic. The humour, of course, is still here in full swing but so are the emotions. Stakes are high, people are changed, and winning may not necessarily be winning in the way that either group hopes.

Fantastic. Has definitely earned its place as a favourite series of mine.

John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" has turned out to be one of my favourite series. The writing, dialogue, and characters are great.

This is the latest (and possibly the last) installment of the "Old Man's War" stories. Unusually for modern Sci-Fi, it ends on an upbeat note. Good stuff.
