Book four of the Ender Quartet, which, unlike what you may think, is not comprised of four books. Anymore. :-)

The blurb:

'THE DESTRUCTION OF LUSITANIA DRAWS NEAR

The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: the Pequeninos; a large colony of humans; and the Hive Queen, brought there by Ender. But once again the human race has grown fearful; the Starways Congress has gathered a fleet to destroy Lusitania.

Jane, the evolved computer intelligence, can save the three sentient races of Lusitania. She has learned how to move ships outside the universe, and then instantly back to a different world, abolishing the light-speed limit. But it takes all the processing power available to her, and the Starways Congress is shutting down the Net, world by world.

Soon Jane will not be able to move the ships. Ender's children must save her if they are to save themselves.

'This is a worthy ending to what might be styled a saga of the ethical evolutions of humanity, a concept seldom attempted before and never realized with the success Card achieved here.' -Booklist'

I haven't read this book yet, although I'm listing it as available. I have another reading copy, so this one is free to find a new home. I have read the first two Ender books and liked them, although it's IMO not Card's best work. I plan to read the rest of the series; when I've read this book I may update this entry, I guess.

This is a paperback copy from TOR Books.

I bought this book at a flea market at Bolteløkka elementary school in Oslo on Sunday, March 25th, 2007.

When I've read my other copy, I will post some profound thoughts here ... :-)

This copy will - hopefully - be travelling to Costa Rica soon. :-)
