Description

Hugo-award winning author, John Scalzi returns to his best-selling Old Man's War universe with The End of All Things, the direct sequel to 2013's The Human Division
Humans expanded into space...only to find a universe populated with multiple alien species bent on their destruction. Thus was the Colonial Union formed, to help protect us from a hostile universe. The Colonial Union used the Earth and its excess population for colonists and soldiers. It was a good arrangement...for the Colonial Union. Then the Earth said: no more.
Now the Colonial Union is living on borrowed time-a couple of decades at most, before the ranks of the Colonial Defense Forces are depleted and the struggling human colonies are vulnerable to the alien species who have been waiting for the first sign of weakness, to drive humanity to ruin. And there's another problem: A group, lurking in the darkness of space, playing human and alien against each other-and against their own kind -for their own unknown reasons.
In this collapsing universe, CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson and the Colonial Union diplomats he works with race against the clock to discover who is behind attacks on the Union and on alien races, to seek peace with a suspicious, angry Earth, and keep humanity's union intact...or else risk oblivion, and extinction-and the end of all things.

        Starred review from July 6, 2015
        Hugo-winner Scalzi integrates the best aspects of war stories into the polished and powerful sixth volume—which consists of four connected novellas—in the
        Old Man’s War space opera series. The inevitable and
        parallel downward spirals of the two corrupt space empires, the human Colonial Union and the alien Conclave, are finally coming to a head. All four protagonists work for one of the two entities, and Scalzi shifts among their perspectives to thread a fine needle, recognizing that good people can be entrenched in terrible systems and sometimes can’t (or won’t) change them. Added tension comes in the form of a group called the Equilibrium, which is intent on destroying both the Colonial Union and the Conclave and killing billions in the process. Human Harry Wilson and alien Hafte Sorvalh will be familiar to returning readers, while CU pilot Rafe Daquin and CU Lt. Heather Lee are welcome new voices. New readers will certainly enjoy the work, but the real payoff comes for longtime fans, who will especially appreciate a powerful moment featuring the alien General Gau. Scalzi knows just how to satisfy his fans, providing tense, thrilling action scenes while turning a critical eye on the interstellar equivalents of the military-industrial complex. Agent: Ethan Ellenberg, Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency.

        June 15, 2015

        In four linked novellas (first published serially in June and July 2015) Scalzi concludes the story lines from The Human Division. Given that Earth is at odds with the Colonial Union and the increasing hostile Conclave, the end may be nigh for humanity. Things gets even worse with the discovery that all three parties are being manipulated by a shadowy secret organization known as Equilibrium, whose goal may be the destruction of the planet. The standout is the first novella, "Life of the Mind," in which pilot and former programmer Rafe Daquin is enslaved by Equilibrium as a brain in a box and placed in charge of a ship slated for a suicide mission. Ambassador Abumwe, Lieutenant Wilson, Hart Schmidt, and Hafte Sorvalh, known to Human Division readers, play smaller but equally important roles in the other stories. VERDICT A more serious tone and darker themes characterizes Scalzi's latest, which is closest in style to his YA title, Zoe's Tale, and may not satisfy all readers. [See Prepub Alert, 2/9/15.]--JM

        Hugo and John W. Campbell Award winner Scalzi debuted with Old Man's War, and here he returns to that book's universe, with Earth finally refusing to provide any more colonists and soldiers to the Colonial Union for defense against alien hostiles. That's a big problem made bigger when dark forces out there start pitting the aliens against the humans.
