""The Last Colony" will kick your butt across the galaxy and make you care." -- Rick Kleffel, The Agony Column, on "The Last Colony ""Scalzi's captivating blend of off-world adventure and political intrigue remains consistently engaging." -- "Booklist" on "The Last Colony ""In Heinleinesque fashion, the book is loaded with scenes of comradeship, isolation, ruthlessness and the protocols, which govern the lives of active-duty soldiers. But this is where Scalzi, famous for his blog 'The Whatever, 'surpasses Heinlein. Scalzi weaves in subtle discussions of humanity's growing fear of aging and our simultaneous attraction and repulsion to the Frankenstein-like creatures we are able to create." -- "San Antonio Express-News" on "The Ghost Brigades"
