Book #73 - The Last Colony

It's the third book in the Old Man's War series, this one following The Ghost Bridages and features John Perry and Jane Sagan together. In The Last Colony, they've been retired and married on a farming planet, but get asked to go and settle a new colony on a new planet, Raleigh. The name foretells the story as the colony is essentially lost for a year.

The Colonial Union is battling the Conclave and hides the colony, even from the colonists, who don't know where they are. They spend almost a year there before they find out they're a decoy designed to embarrass the Conclave of alien races. When the aliens come to attack, two groups separately, Perry must come up with something.

An enjoyable book, but you need to read the other two first.
