Secondo capitolo di questa serie military-sf di John Scalzi, si colloca temporalmente poco dopo "Morire per Vivere" e ne ricalca atmosfere, azioni, temi, avventure e lo stesso taglio scanzonato ed ironico. Ovviamente la storia è diversa, incentrata su complotti ed intrighi ma certo l'azione ed i colpi di scena non mancano. Romanzo discreto, pur nella sua modestia di base, forse migliore del precedente.
