Children of the Mind // Orson Scott Card.
The final part of the fantastical quartet surrounding Ender Wiggins. And it is indeed a worthy end.
I will forever remember Ender’s Game as the kickstarter for my fascination for Sci-Fi novels. To be able to say that I finished the four main books (there is a “Shadow series” that works side by side with some of these novels) is a sad but great accomplishment. Though fictional, these books have profusely dispensed deep truth of humanity.
We live short lives. We destroy. We learn. We heal. We perpetuate. We live short lives.
