- By: John Scalzi
- Narrated by: Tavia Gilbert
- Length: 10 hrs
"I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player in a interstellar chess match to save humanity. Seventeen years old. Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: 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."

This is just a rewrite of Last Colony from a slightly different viewpoint. Don't bother unless you felt that Last Colony needed to be told through the eyes of an annoying, pretentious teenager.
The narration is fine but the narrator uses different pronunciation for many names compared to previous entries, which I found confusing and distracting.
