    Artificial intelligence has been developed to a point where human intelligence can be uploaded into a computer, achieving a sort of hybrid immortality. Astronaut Christian Brannock welcomes this technology, technology that will make it possible for him to achieve his dream and explore the stars.

    The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.

    El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt.

    You will definitely enjoy it!
    It will have a strong appeal to the under 25. I have read it at least three times now.

    While it does have a relationship to the Ender series it is not part of that series. Orson Scott card has always delivered value in his writings and this is no different. You will enjoy.

    Critics are a dime a dozen. I guess I'll be one. I don't like how this book or series was broken up. It ended in the wrong spot. I think the publisher was trying to make it like a television series trying to leave at a cliffhangers. You actually caused a different problem. I guess money is money to them.

    Fully 100,000 years ago, the galaxy was populated by a great variety of beings. But one species - eons beyond all others in both technology and knowledge - achieved dominance. They ruled in peace but met opposition with quick and brutal effectiveness. They were the Forerunners - the keepers of the Mantle, the next stage of life in the Universe’s Living Time. And then they vanished. This is their story.

    Kyle says: "Utterly Amazing, Mind Expanding"
    "Poor read"
    Overall

    Should have be been shorter. Value less read. Not sure who wrote this but not Greg Bear.

    The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: a large colony of humans; the Pequeninos; and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. Once again, the enemy (the Starways Congress) has gathered a fleet and is threatening to destroy Lusitania. Ender's oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, is trying to save the three sentient species of Lusitania, but the Starways Congress is destroying the computer world she lives in.
