I will say this, however: You can’t read this book without having read the last colony as it doesn’t really elaborate on major plot points, but if you read the last colony you already know everything that’s happened and all this book adds is a bunch of snarky dialogues that lead to nothing with absolutely no suspense in the thrilling bits.

Zoe’s Tale by John Scalzi
I think “John Scalzi” is actually a teenage girl who’s too smart for her own good. Really, it was kind of a pain in the ass. My issue with the book is that it is “only” a companion novel to the last book in the series. Writing it twice under two different titles.

It tells exactly the same story and therefore it has zero tension. Worst of the series so far A player and a pawn in a interstellar chess match to save humanity, or to see it fall. Much in the same way that reading Harry Potter for the first time right now wouldn’t have the same impact as when I read them as a child.
