The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: a large colony of humans; the Pequeninos; and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. Once again, the enemy (the Starways Congress) has gathered a fleet and is threatening to destroy Lusitania. Ender's oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, is trying to save the three sentient species of Lusitania, but the Starways Congress is destroying the computer world she lives in.

Such a shame. Even though there was a few female narrators, some female voices were spoken by a whiny nasal male. That voice was difficult to listen to representing a man, what to speak of women. It ruined a wonderful story, The philosophy was interesting and deep. Why ruin it with frantic, whiny, rough voices. I really hope these last few books are redone with pleasing narration.
