This was one of the best books I've ever read! The begging was kinda confusing but as the story went on, it was easier to understand. Action-filled with different things the main characters saw and felt. The ending really surprised me.

I enjoyed reading this book, which was an interesting mix of historical fiction and science fiction set at the time of the English Civil War. The cleverly made characters and twisting plot will keep you hooked throughout.

This is a good book that is exciting. If you like Star Wars I recommend this book. It is good but - SPOILER ALERT - has a horribly sad ending.

In this book, Orson Scott Card explores the possible consequences of competition between native and earth-based life forms. His heroine is likable, tough and has a strong cast of supporting characters.

This book started out interesting: Jerry, whose mother is dead and father is absent, is sent to live with her great-aunt Constanza, and finds a trunk in the cellar full of bits and pieces of her ancestor's lives. The stories of her ancestors, beginning as Jews in Spain during the Inquisition and moving to Mexico and then New Mexico Territory over six hundred years, are interwoven with Jerry's story. However, the ending is extremely anti-climatic, and many parts of the book-- like Jerry's reaction to the stories-- are underdone and could have been used more effectively. Very little is actually resolved.
