Book Description

The eighth episode of The Human Division, John Scalzi's new thirteen-episode novel in the world of his bestselling Old Man's War. Beginning on January 15, 2013, a new episode of The Human Division will appear in e-book form every Tuesday.

The Colonial Defense Forces usually protect humanity from alien attack, but now the stability of the Colonial Union has been threatened, and Lieutenant Heather Lee and her squad are called to squash a rebellion on a colony world. It seems simple enough—but there’s a second act to the rebellion that finds Lee captive, alone, and armed with only her brains to survive.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

3.0 out of 5 stars Depth of the series is waning March 5, 2013
By Chris S
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Its really not fair that this is my first review in this series, because I love 99% of what Scalzi writes.

At first, the episodes seemed to have more depth, but the last two have simply been short, predictable chapters. With only a couple of episodes remaining, I'm not feeling as engaged with the characters as I've had in other Scalzi novels.

I just wish there was more "going on" in each episode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Standalone survival of the smartest story March 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is another excellent stand-alone story. It's a locked-room prisoner's dilemma thing, and it is worked out exceedingly well, story
-wise.

I really appreciated this story, and actually went through and read it a second time once I stopped being surprised. You should pick it up.

Read if: You like to read prisoner escape narratives. You enjoy people surviving by their wits.

Skip if: You are going to be distressed by psychological torture.

Also read: The other books in this serial.

1.0 out of 5 stars The sound of wasted time and money April 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Walk away, just walk away. It's too late for me, I've been had but hopefully, it's not too late for you. You will be disappointed, you will want your time and money back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet March 7, 2013
By Ryan
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an action packed episode, and we finally got a good glimpse at the organisation who are trying to fracture all those human alliances.

It was the shortest episode so far, but for me it was also the most engaging episode. With only five episodes left I worry that there might not be enough time to resolve everything, but Scalzi has a proven track record of awesome and I suspect those so called "filler" stories will turn out to be far more important than people thought.

Well written look at a future our inheritors may face. Scalzi is able to pull you into his vision and make you care about his characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent writing October 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As always, knowing John Scalzi is unafraid to sacrifice a well developed character keeps the suspense going. This is more than a cute technology thriller clearly it introduces another exciting set of characters & furthers the overall story. How everyone surviving fares should be entertaining

4.0 out of 5 stars Good extension of the Old Man's War series
This builds on the ending of the Old Man's War series. Without having read that series It might be a bit confusing as not a lot of background information is presented.
