By John Scalzi
Following the occasions of The final Colony, John Scalzi tells the tale of the struggle to take care of the solidarity of the human race.
The humans of Earth now understand that the human Colonial Union has stored them blind to the damaging universe round them. For generations the CU had defended humanity opposed to antagonistic extraterrestrial beings, intentionally preserving Earth an ignorant backwater and a resource of army recruits. Now the CU's secrets and techniques are identified to all. different alien races have come at the scene and shaped a brand new alliance-an alliance opposed to the Colonial Union. And they've invited the folks of Earth to hitch them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the alternative isn't noticeable or easy.
Against such probabilities, coping with the survival of the Colonial Union won't be effortless, both. it's going to take diplomatic finesse, political cunning…and a super "B Team," based at the imaginative Lieutenant Harry Wilson, that may be deployed to house the unpredictable and unforeseen issues the universe throws at you while you're suffering to maintain the cohesion of the human race.
Being released on-line from January to April 2013 as a three-month electronic serial, The Human Division will look as a full-length novel of the previous Man's battle universe, plus-for the 1st time in print-the first story of Lieutenant Harry Wilson, and a coda that wasn't a part of the electronic serialization.
