Very enjoyable 3d book in exceptional series

The series started with "Old Man's War" and ultimately continues through for a total of six books by this date, Oct 9, 2016. In the first book the author created a truly unique story line, and he has worked it successfully through all the succeeding books. His characterization is believable, and the characters are generally easily visualized, even the intelligent but weird space creatures. Snappy dialog. The overall setting is multi-galaxy wide, but the specific story lines are localized. The SciFi innovations are mainly in bio-adaptation, especially after the first book. This book successfully launches a spin-off of sorts and establishes four new characters worth following.

A very thought provoking book. Could this possibly be what lays ahead for the people of Earth?
