First of all, compoaring this work with the Enders series is not exactly fair. They are very different series in both direction and intent. Ender's Game was always intended to be a 'deep' book, while the Homecoming series is simply action adventure scifi. In that, it serves its purpose. The problem with this volume is that after the speed of the first book, this one drags out considerably. It seems to take all of the characters to take all the book to get from A to B, when it all could have been done in a few chapters and we could have gone on to C, D, and maybe even ... yes E. Still, it keeps you going, and several new plot elements are put into play, and I am looking forward to the next three books. But to get from Basilica to Earth in three books... I hope Crad pulls his socks up, or rather his character's.
