    At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten - a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth’s history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come.

    Story

    I have read many of Orson Scott Cards books and all of the shadow series. I am used to a fairly consistent level of detail in the stories but I felt like this one was an outlier. At the end of the book Orson talks about the shorter format and states it was somewhat of an experiment to see if a story could fit into a cheaper book but I would say the results are negative.
    It was difficult to connect with the story in such a short time frame and I am quite certain that it could have been a meaningful book had it been developed deeply.
