Publisher Description

How do you tell your part in the biggest tale in history?

I ask because it's what I have to do. I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player (and a pawn) in a interstellar chess match to save humanity, or to see it fall. Witness to history. Friend. Daughter. Human. Seventeen years old.

Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: How I did what I did — how I did what I had to do — not just to stay alive but to keep you alive, too. All of you. I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope. Everything that happened, bringing us to Earth, and Earth out of its captivity. All through my eyes.

It's a story you know. But you don't know it all.

An excellent follow up to the last colony

So many questions after the last colony and this book answered them all.

An outstanding read with emotionally engaging characters.

A wonderful story & series

Zoe’s Tale is a wonderful alternative viewpoint of the previous book, through the eyes of John’s and Jane’s adopted daughter Zoe. It has also thoughtfully, filled in a number of blanks left open previously; in a very imaginative and entertaining manner. If you enjoy or just mildly love science fiction, then this book and series is a definite must read. Enjoy!

Last colony redux

I loved the first three books. So when I finished the third, I simply bought the fourth without bothering with a preview or reading the reviews. I should have bothered. This is just the third book rewritten. I kept reading, hoping for a new storyline to branch off. But it didn’t. Just the same story slightly rewritten from the point of view of a child. I’m not planning to read the next book in the series.
