The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: the Pequeninos, a large colony of humans, and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. But now, once again, the human race has grown fearful; the Starways Congress has gathered a fleet to destroy Lusitania. Ender's oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, can save the three sentient species 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 network of computers in which she lives, 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. Children of the Mind is the fourth book in Orson Scott Card's Ender Quintet.

Professional reviews

"A cast including Gabrielle de Cuir and David Birney portray the many characters in Book 4 of the Ender Quartet. The characters vary widely in origin, personality, and ideology. De Cuir begins the story with the convincing Asian accent of a Chinese woman and then seamlessly transitions into an American character. Birney develops the character of the acerbic Peter, while Stefan Rudnicki's depiction of the all-knowing Ender emphasizes their different personalities. CHILDREN OF THE MIND details many story lines across the universe, and the transitions between these subplots are sometimes difficult to follow. However, the narrators are expert at giving the characters individual flair. Listeners should prepare to enter Card's world with the previous stories fresh in their minds. W.V.S.
