Summary:

High above Earth orbits the starship Basilica. On board the huge vessel is a sleeping woman. Of those who made the journey, Shedemai alone has survived the hundreds of years since the Children of Wetchik returned to Earth.

She now wears the Cloak of the Starmaster, and the Oversoul wakes her sometimes to watch over her descendants on the planet below. The population has grown rapidly'there are cities and nations now, whole peoples descended from those who followed Nafai or Elemak.

But in all the long years of watching and searching, the Oversoul has not found the thing it sought. It has not found the Keeper of Earth, the central intelligence that also can repair the Oversoul's damaged programming.

    There was no plot. I couldnt even make it thru the first disk.

    I used to love O. S. C., the Ender series was some of the most entertaining writing I've ever read. Earthborn is causing me to wonder "what happened"? I mean, I get the whole racism angle, and yes, we all know racism is "bad" but the story, and I use the term lightly, goes nowhere, the characters are boring and forgettable, especially their names. This is a good example of a great writer becoming enamored with his own ability to generate ficticious character names, religions and politics. I hate politics, it's boring in real life and even moreso when I'm attempting to escape it via a good book. Earthborn is preachy and high handed and long winded.
