Publisher's Summary

Xenocide is the third installment of the Ender series. On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequeninos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought. But Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus which kills all humans it infects, but which the pequeninos require in order to transform into adults. The Starways Congress so fears the effect of the descolada, should it escape from Lusitania, that they have ordered the destruction of the entire planet and all who live there. The Fleet is on its way and a second Xenocide seems inevitable, until the Fleet vanishes.

Good but not exceptionable.

After listening to so speaker for the dead I had to get this one. It was OK, nothing got to too excited and parts could have been fleshed out more especially after a fire takes place.

I can see how this could be made into a film but it would lose its philosophical soul. Lots of really interesting things to think about now. When is sanity madness and vice versa? When is it ok to wipe out a species? Who are you, actually? Enjoy.
