This fourth book in Card's five-volume Homecoming Saga continues the story of the descendants of Earth returning to the planet after a 40-million-year absence. Stefan Rudnicki has a particular facility with the often unpronounceable names made famous—and sometimes tedious—by fantasy and sci-fi authors. Almost entirely because of his talent, it's relatively easy for the listener to follow the intricate plots and subplots fairly overflowing in this epic. The sometimes-fast-paced adventure is woven with slower subplots. Rudnicki's pacing matches up so well that we actually feel time passing as the returning starship transits the multigenerational distance necessary to return to Earth. This is for all lovers of human migration fantasy and those who love sci-fi with a spiritual bent. M.C. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
