    In the free-fall environment of the Smoke Ring (an envelope of breathable atmosphere around a neutron star), the descendants of the crew of the Discipline no longer remember their Earth roots - or the existence of Sharls Davis Kendy, the ship's computer-program despot. Until Kendy initiates contact once more.

    "great universe"
    Overall

    This is another amazing story from Larry Niven. A great way to escape into a wild and interesting world for a while. (this is the second in the series)

    Best selling SF author Orson Scott Card brings to life a new chapter in the saga of Ender's Earth.

    Earth and its society have been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin's victory over the Formics. The unity forced upon the warring nations by an alien enemy has shattered. Nations are rising again, seeking territory and influence, and most of all, seeking to control the skills and loyalty of the children from the Battle School.

    Amy says: "Great book!"
    "Card folded on this one!"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed all of the previous books in this series, however this one seems like Card was phoning it in. Just when I thought it couldn?t get any worse, it did...he gets so preachy! One of the things I find interesting about all of Orson Scott Card's books (in addition to the usually great characters, plots...) is analyzing how his religious beliefs help shape his (usually) excellent science fiction. So much of this book however was an undisguised sermon! and a boring one at that.
    If you already read all of the previous books in the Ender series, you will probably buy this one, and its not all bad. - but don't say I didn?t warn you.
