Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0812532961, Mass Market Paperback)High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches, programmed forty million years ago to guard the human settlement from all threats, especially themselves. In the latest in the Hugo- and Nebula award-winning author's Homecoming series, the great artificial intelligence has lost control of the population, forbidden technology has been rediscovered, war has broken out, and the only repair lies light years distant on a lost and ruined Earth.
"There seems little doubt that the whole series will prove as readable--and as morally committed--as we've come to expect from Card." --Locus

At last, the Wetchik tribe is ready to take a ship to the stars. But from the beginning there has been bitter dispute between Nafai and Elemak, Wetchik's youngest son and his oldest. And only Nefai, who wears the Cloak of the Starmaster by the Oversoul's command, understands what this means to the future of all.
