Fantasy • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

WYRMS was originally published in 1987, not long after ENDER'S GAME, Card's most popular novel. This novel also features a child as the main character, a teenager named Patience, who, a religious person tells her, is destined to give birth to Kristos, the potential savior of the world. Emily Janice Card narrates, providing the perfect voice for the character of Patience. One of the most interesting aspects of the WYRMS world is that people's heads can be animated after death. Using air bladders to push air past a severed head's vocal cords allows one to hear them speak. Emily Card's performance of a scene in which Patience has a difficult conversation with her father's head is distinctive and chilling.
