Children of the Mind, fourth in the Ender series, is the conclusion of the story begun in the third book, Xenocide. The author unravels Ender's life and reweaves the threads into unexpected new patterns, including an apparent reincarnation of his threatening older brother, Peter, not to mention another "sister" Valentine. Multiple storylines entwine, as the threat of the Lusitania-bound fleet looms ever nearer. The self-aware computer, Jane, who has always been more than she seemed, faces death at human hands even as she approaches godhood. At the same time, the characters hurry to investigate the origins of the descolada virus before they lose their ability to travel instantaneously between the stars.

If you've read the other books in the Ender series, you must read this to wrap up the loose ends. However, I found this book harder to get into than the others in the series. It just seemed even more far-fetched. STILL, you can't leave the fate of Lusitania undecided, and this book was not a disappointment - just not as wonderful as the others in my opinion.

The superb conclusion of the Ender series by the brilliant visionary writer Orson Scott Card. Not as good as Xenocide, but nonetheless a fitting conclusion to an amazing series.

This finale is definitely more interesting and more action-packed than the last two of the quartet. However, none of the three lives up to the Ender fame.

My all time Scott Card favorite is still the first one, Ender's Game.

My least favorite of the four - but still worth reading I think. Agree that the God Whispers are excellent.

It is not as good as the prior Ender books

Interesting book with a good premise, but a little preachy at points for my taste.
