Synopsis: On a distant planet, Ender Wiggins, now penitent over once leading humanity in the virtual xenocide of the hostile insectoid Bugger race, attempts to ensure the survival of the native alien species whose complex and bizarre life cycle is an innate threat to humanity, the survival of the last Bugger queen with whom he has made peaceful contact and who now lives in sanctuary on the planet, and the survival of the planet's human colonists, by solving the biological puzzle of how these species can safely coexist before the human fleet arrives to sterilize the planet or the aliens achieve space flight and take their threat to all inhabited planets. He is aided by members of his birth family and the family he has married into on the threatened planet and members of the alien species, as well as an artificial intelligence who lives in the faster than light communications network and the human residents of another distant planet, genetically altered by the corrupt Company which controls humanity so as to be cognitively simultaneously enhanced and crippled, to provide a resource which can be easily managed. To find a solution requires the synthesis of the best philosophical, ethical, and religious thinking of all parties.
