Card's brilliance lies in his ability to balance an engaging story, compelling characters, and deep philosophical themes while maintaining a fast-paced and approachable format. This is quite possibly Card's best work, and that's saying a lot!
Amazing piece of writing!
Orson Scott Card once again does a fantastic job of combining suspense, action, futuristic themes, while keeping a balance of suspense throughout the entire book. A great companion to Enders Game!!!
Finished the book in 3 sittings.
It's been such a long time since I came across such a powerful story as this one. I had to buy the next book right away. And as soon as I finish typing this sentence, I'm going to delve back into the world that Card so magnificently created :)
