Xenocide: Volume Three of the Ender Quintet

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Date: August 2004

Duration: 20 hours 14 minutes


In Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequininos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. But Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus that kills all humans it infects, but which the pequininos require in order to become adults. The Startways Congress so fears the effects 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.
The task of discovering how the ships disappeared falls to Gloriously Bright, the most brilliant analytical mind in a world of people bred for superintelligence. There is little doubt that she can solve the puzzle; but will she choose life or death for the three races who live on Lusitania?
Xenocide is the third novel in Orson Scott Card's Ender Quintet.

    The narration changing between narrators takes a bit getting used to but I loved the audio book.

  • Jean-Francois G

    Very cool book. Sadly, the audio was lagging once in a while.

  • Rosemary Cure

    Not first time listening to book. First time not too impressed wanted to get on with Ender story line. Now that I have re-listened to book can put together the story as far as this book is concerned. New characters are added increasing the power of the story. The story teller voices are interesting and intertwining mixing the cultures and intonations and inflections. Would listen to it again at a later time. Still waiting for the author orson Scott card to complete the series with final book. Been waiting about 3 or 4 years now.
