Publisher's Summary

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. Worrying about a distant object that might or might not be an alien ship seems…not important.

They're wrong. It's the most important thing that has happened to the human race in a million years. The first Formic War is about to begin.

    "Read this after Ender's Game"

    It was amazing! If you are reading the series like me, read in order of how it happened in the Endervise instead of Ender's Game then Speaker for the dead Etc

    "Absolutely wonderful"

    I absolutely loved this story. The characters, suspense, storyline - everything. I have not read the Enders series. I have only seen the movie, but it got me interested enough to look into the books and I found this prequel series. I'm so glad!

    I don't really like all the different readers, though. I don't know why it annoyed me but it did. The story was good enough for me to overlook that annoyance though!

    "Solid and worth it."
    What made the experience of listening to Earth Unaware the most enjoyable?

    Really enjoy the character development in all of Card's books - he's on point with this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Earth Unaware?

    Raw emotion. I won't spoil anything, but Card knows how to capture true emotion.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes - love Rudnicki and was impressed with the other narrators as well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Toward the end - Lem's complete confusion at Concepcion's willingness to delete the files.


    Any additional comments?

    This is great. I'm a long-time Card fan who had avoided these because they were co-written - realizing my mistake. Take the leap, you'll be glad you did.
