What the Critics Say

"This is a worthy ending to what might be styled a saga of the ethical evolution of humanity, a concept seldom attempted before and never realized with the success Card achieves here." (Booklist)
"Card's prose is powerful." (Publishers Weekly)

A fitting ending...

Although the concluding book in the series, this was primarily a sequel to the storylines in Xenocide, with both books initially being conceived as one larger book until the story became too long. As such, it was an excellent conclusion which left me wanting to know more of the various characters and their exploits.

As a conclusion to the Ender series as a whole, again, it tied up all the loose ends nicely and made the four books of the series, a wonderful listening experience. I cannot recommend the series highly enough for the depth of characters, the interesting multiple storylines, the wonderful concepts and ideas that OSC introduces and the exemplary reading by a consistently high-performance narration team. Thank you OSC and all involved in producing these audiobooks.
