Whilst I absolutely loved Enders Game, and really enjoyed the next two books, I found this to be a bit of an anticlimax. Disappointing. ( )

Really the second part of the story from Xenocide. Although all the threads are gathered up and wrapped n a bow for the reader, it does seem a little bit Deus-Ex-Machine - not as good as the first 2 books. But still an enoyable read. ( )

There are already those who say that we've wasted enough starship space on trees and bugs. Trees referred, of course, to the pequeninos, who were not, in fact, transporting fathertrees and mothertrees, and bugs referred to the Hive Queen, who was also not wasting space sending a lot of workers. But every world they were settling did have a large contingent of pequeninos and at least one hive Queen and a handful of workers to help her get started. Never mind that it was the hive queen on every world that quickly produced workers who were doing the bulk of the labor getting agriculture started, never mind that because they weren't taking trees with them, at least one male and one female in every group of pequeninos had to be planted - had to die slowly and painfully , so that a fathertree and mothertree could take root. They all knew that under the polite surface was an undercurrent of competition between species. Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card

As are many books, this book is hard to rate. Do I criticize the continued deus ex machina from the previous book, or do I accept it because it plays by consistent rules? For that matter, what's the difference between my perceived deus ex machina and a (perceived) legitimate magic system in a fantasy novel? Why is near-lightspeed travel acceptable and the other thing (which I will not spoil here) not? Is it just because the rest of the series is (somewhat) realistic?

Well, the story is well-written and interesting (although it feels a lot more like [b:Xenocide|8648|Xenocide (The Ender Quintet, #3)|Orson Scott Card|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1386924577s/8648.jpg|1150594], part two, than an independant book, which makes sense, since the story was originally intended to take place within Xenocide, and was only later moved to its own book). The characters are well-written, if sometimes slightly irritating, and consistent. Even those who are inherently hard to understand (like Jane) react in believable ways to new circumstances, and to each other.

The world is familiar by now, and the new places fit in very well, everything seems plausible enough, and people from different cultures actually behave differently. All in all, I am satisfied with the worldbuilding.

The ending makes sense in the context of the story. It may feel a bit too open to some, but I liked it. I also liked that the Author finally decided to put his thoughts on the novel at the end of the book, and not into the foreword (although, for some reason, he mostly refrained from referring to important elements of the story this time, as opposed to the spoiler-heavy forewords he wrote for the previous books).

All in all, I liked both the book and the series, and would recommend it. The book did not quite feel like a five-star-book, for some reason, but don't let that discourage you. It's still a very good book.
