Zoe’s Tale

Where The Last Colony replaced politics for The Ghost Brigades ‘s action, Zoe’s Tale is a sto This was a 3-star book until the last hundred or so pages, where it really shined and Scalzi reminded us why he’s one of the kings of modern science-fiction. I think I liked this more than I liked The Last Colony, though I gave that a similar rating — it was good to get into Zoe’s head, good to see things from a different perspective, and this way you could get to know the Obin a little better, and see what happened behind the scenes, so to speak.
