Xenocide is the third installment of the Ender series. On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequeninos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought. But Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus which kills all humans it infects, but which the pequeninos require in order to transform into adults. The Starways Congress so fears the effect of the descolada, should it escape from Lusitania, that they have ordered the destruction of the entire planet and all who live there. The Fleet is on its way and a second Xenocide seems inevitable, until the Fleet vanishes. Download and start listening now!

    " The Ender Saga gets really far-fetched in the third book. The interplay of characters and ideas is so compelling that I was able to read through some of the more outlandish concepts. I'll take the audacity of Orson Scott Card over a safe predictable narrative tale any day. I'm taking a break now, but will definitely read the 4th book. "

    " Just FYI Xenocide is not found in any English Dictionary (I looked at several). Xeno means "outside." I just found it interesting that he created a whole new term and used it as a title. The book was okay. I liked the second book in the series better. There is a lot more Sci-Fi in this one. He takes you down several roads that deal with physics and he lost me a couple of times. The character development is good and he does move the story along. It just seemed more laborious to me. I will continue to read and finish the series. I'm kind of interested in reading some of his other books with "Ender" but I may take a break from him for a while. "

    " The book was quite similar to Speaker for the Dead, which was good. My biggest problem with this story is that it seemed way too repetitive. It seemed like a litany of conversations centered on the characters bemoaning about how they need to castigate themselves with tedious rituals for something they thought or said. Either that or Miro complaining about his slow speech. I understand character development but these idiosyncrasies were already developed within the first 5 times they had these interminable thoughts or conversations. Honestly, I think the story could have been 200 pages shorter with the same progression and essential elements. "
