    The people of Earth now know that the human Colonial Union has kept them ignorant of the dangerous universe around them. For generations the CU had defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU’s secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance - an alliance against the Colonial Union. And they’ve invited the people of Earth to join them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy.

    What would have made The Human Division better?

    The overall story ark of the book was very short, but the individual stories felt almost cookie cutter and were written like stand alone stories put into a collection. Each individual story did little more than introduce numerous new characters and then drop many when the next story starts. about halfway through the book i was wondering if i was going to find out anymore about who or what was behind the hinted at plot, but we never feel like we find out more than what we knew 1/3 of the way into the book.

    By now I think most every one in the Old Mans War series has the same sarcastic nature, just to different degree's. I'm feeling a lack of depth.


    Has The Human Division turned you off from other books in this genre?

    James S.A. Corey’s best-selling hit Leviathan Wakes earned Hugo and Locus Award nominations. In Caliban’s War, the second chapter of Corey’s Expanse series, a desperate Earth politician works tirelessly to prevent war from reigniting. Meanwhile, upheaval takes root on Venus and Ganymede. And amidst this tumult, James Holden and his crew on the Rocinante are charged with the impossible task of saving humanity from a terrifying fate.
