    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.

    I enjoyed Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead, but had to stop listening to this 2 hours in. It's bad, the narration is awful, the story is boring and more drawn out than it needs to be. Painful to listen to, there's no continuity between characters at this point, there's too many characters to even keep track of, and the narration is borderline ludicrous.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Story

    Yikes, I don't get the rave reviews of this book. I got halfway through and just gave up. The premise sounds great, the summary drew me in, and then all the glorious descriptions of "nothing inparticular" for pages upon pages really bored me. I listen to audiobooks in my car for at least 90 minutes a day and usually enjoy them. This book was terrible and I kept stopping listening to listen to music on my iPhone. I just didn't care enough about the story to keep going.

    The end is coming. Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him but it’s going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the King of the Northmen still stands firm and there’s only one man who can stop him. His oldest friend and his oldest enemy. It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no-one is safe and no-one can be trusted.

    Lore says: "You have be realistic about these things."
    "Great story, up until the "ending"."
    Overall

    I listened to all 3 books in the series and was really into the characters and the story line. Up until the "ending" that just seemed to stop the story mid action. Really bizarre way to handle the ending of a good series. The real ending should have happened hours before in the audiobook. I kept wondering what the heck else could happen after everything was done, and there was still several hours left in the segment.

    This would have been at least a 4 star book, maybe even a 4.5. But with the atrocious way Joe ended the series I can't give it more than 3.
