Publisher's Summary

They must save themselves - or die trying.

John Perry was living peacefully on one of humanity's colonies - until he and his wife were offered an opportunity these ex-supersoldiers couldn't resist. To come out of retirement and lead a new frontier world.

However, once on the planet, they discover they've been betrayed. For this colony is a pawn in an interstellar game of war and diplomacy. Humanity's Colonial Union has pitched itself against a new, seemingly unstoppable alien alliance dedicated to ending all human colonization.

As this contest rages above, Perry struggles to keep his terrified colonists alive on the surface below - despite dangerous interstellar politics, violence and treachery. And the planet has yet to reveal its own fatal secrets.

    A reader of science fiction and other speculative musings for more than 40 years, I'm most fond of the grand themes found in space opera.

    "So good..."

    I'm a Scalzi fan, so this was bound to please. It has all the ingredients: great characters, a strong story, humour and surprise. The performance by Dufris is impeccable, as usual. So, pretty much the complete entertainment package.

    "Treads water a little"

    This is a good continuation of the series but it felt a little pedestrian. Neither plot or characters really break a sweat. That said, if you enjoyed the preceding books you'll probably enjoy this one too.
