Editorial Reviews

“Stefan Rudnicki is a master narrator, and nothing—not complicated names, not departures from the feel of the original four books—diminishes that talent a whit…Rudnicki's clear, resonant voice bestows an almost-reverent quality to the text, a characteristic that works well with the book's spiritual underpinnings.”—AudioFile “Card's far-future religious saga manages, brilliantly, to be at once entertaining, unobjectionable, and edifying.”—Kirkus Reviews “[The] complex situation, abetted by Card's superior characterization, offers more than enough conflict and questing to keep the yarn moving. The grand saga of human evolution is a demanding category of sf and fantasy, but Card has met its demands quite successfully.”—Booklist “The conclusion of the story…is vintage Card and a joy to read.”—Publishers Weekly
