A decent, but unnecessary novel,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Children Of The Mind: Book 4 of the Ender Saga (The Ender Quartet series) (Kindle Edition)
Although the third novel Xenocide did have loose ends, I felt it provided a satisfactory conclusion to the Ender saga. Yes the fleet was on route to annihilate the colony, but the threat of Xenocide was over and that's all that really mattered. Therefore I felt a fourth novel was somewhat unnecessary.
Children of the Mind ties up these loose ends and provides closure to the character of Ender and his fellow colonists. Overall I am satisfied with the way in which it does this, although the book (especially the first half) contains much philosophic waffling and dull inner dialogue. Having said that, the story still leaves some plot threads dangling which I suspect will eventually be wrapped up in the final Bean novel.
