John Scalzi’s THE END OF ALL THINGS

9781447290490John Scalzi returns to the Old Man’s War universe for his next fantastic installment. Following on from The Human Division, which was told over thirteen episodes, this time Scalzi tells his story over four novellas and once again demonstrates his total mastery in whatever form or perspective he chooses to tell his stories.

Have firming established his universe over four previous novels Scalzi has relished the chance to explore its complexities over the last two books through the world of high stakes, interstellar diplomacy. Things were not looking good for the human species at the end of The Human Division. Earth had split away from the Colonial Union which has drastic consequences for the Colonial Union’s defensive and colonizing capabilities. The Conclave, a coalition of alien species whose aim it is to bring peace and stability to the universe, has intentionally or unintentionally found itself as a wedge between Earth and The Colonial Union as each party scramble to form new allegiances. Enter a new shadow group whose intentions are to bring everything crashing down.

9780765376077Scalzi tells the story from the point of view of a high ranking Conclave diplomat, a Colonial Union platoon lieutenant, a Colonial Union diplomat (Harry Wilson) and a brain in a box (yes you read that correctly). The brilliance of John Scalzi is that each story works perfectly well on it’s own but together slowly draws out the plot to bring so-called equilibrium to the universe.

I loved returning to this universe so much. John Scalzi is a dead set genius and I can’t wait for there to be more from this series wherever and whenever that may be.
