Hard-core science fiction at its very best, John Scalzi's The Human Division is the fifth in The Old Man's War series.

Lieutenant Harry Wilson has an impossible mission. He must help preserve the union of humanity's colonies, in the wake of a terrible revelation.

For years the Colonial Union has protected its citizens from the dangerous universe around them. But the people of Earth now know the ugly truth. The Union deliberately kept Earth as an ignorant backwater - and as a source of recruits for its war against hostile aliens. Now, other alien races have formed a new alliance against the Union. And they've invited the incensed people of Earth to join them.

Managing the Colonial Union's survival will take all the political cunning and finesse its diplomats can muster. And Harry and his team will be deployed to deal with the unexpected - for failure is unthinkable.

Continue the gripping space war series with The End of All Things.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I loved The Human Division . . . It all ends with a grand slam that puts The Human Division on the shortlist of SF's potential future classics, and leaves readers with the thrilling prospect that if this is really the end for good old Homo sapiens, we have only just begun to fight * SFReviews.net *

An invigorating and morally complex interstellar thriller with heart . . . Deeply realized characters and stinging webs of political and social deceit lend mystery and emotionally harsh realism to a thrilling setting of deep space and distant worlds

* Publishers Weekly *

Featuring the author's trademark humor, clever dialog, and a hefty dose of action, this is a wonderful addition to Scalzi's Old Man's War universe

* Library Journal *
The Human Division flat out rocked. It's a smart space opera novel that weaves together politics, characters and action . . . this is a fine read, and an excellent addition to the series * Geekexchange.com *
Immensely entertaining * RT Book Reviews - 41/2 stars, Top Pick *
