The Old Man's War series
'John Scalzi is the most entertaining, accessible writer working in SF today' - Joe Hill, author of The Fireman
John Scalzi's Zoe's Tale is the fourth in The Old Man's War series.
She won't go down without a fight.
It's not every day you up sticks and move to another world. But then, Zoe Boutin-Perry's life has never been ordinary. She's the adopted teenage daughter of two former super-soldiers. She's also a holy icon to a race of alien warriors who track her every move. So she's used to the quirks of being a human in space.
However, this time something's different. Betrayed by the authorities, Zoe - along with her parents and fellow colonists - finds herself stranded on a deadly pioneer planet. The Colonial Union has also set them up as a target for hostile alien action. Zoe must become a player (and a pawn) in an interstellar battle, which will determine the fate of humanity.
Her father's side of this story was told in The Last Colony, but Zoe's Tale reveals a whole new dimension.
It's a story you may think you know, but you don't really know it at all.
