Reviews

Card and Johnston intensify their complex intergalactic mythos with emotional intensity and widening thematic scope. Everyday desires are as deadly as the Formics' flesh-eating acid in this collision of space opera and big-bug epic. This breakneck thriller is a dark and lively addition to the Enderverse
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
A standout tale of SF adventure that gives Ender series fans fascinating backstory to the classic Ender's Game
LIBRARY JOURNAL on EARTH UNAWARE
The story progresses nimbly, with plenty of tension and excitement and Card's usual well-developed characters
KIRKUS REVIEWS on EARTH UNAWARE
Literate prose and superlative characterisation . . . excellent
BOOKLIST on EARTH UNAWARE
The best writer science fiction has to offer.
THE HOUSTON POST
Hugo and Nebula-award winner Orson Scott Card demonstrates again that he belongs in the company of such older masters of science fiction as Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert and Ursula K. Le Guin.
