The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: the Pequeninos, a large colony of humans, and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. But now, once again, the human race has grown fearful; the Starways Congress has gathered a fleet to destroy Lusitania. Ender’s oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, can save the three sentient species of Lusitania. She has learned how to move ships outside the universe, and then instantly back to a different world, abolishing the light-speed limit. But it takes all the processing power available to her, and the Starways Congress is shutting down the network of computers in which she lives, world by world.

Soon Jane will not be able to move the ships. Ender’s children must save her if they are to save themselves.
 
Children of the Mind is the fourth book in Orson Scott Card's Ender Quintet.

CHILDREN OF THE MIND (Chapter 1)

"I'M NOT MYSELF"

"Mother. Father. Did I do it right?"

The last words of Han Qing-jao, fromThe God Whispers of Han Qing-jao

Si Wang-mu stepped forward. The young man named Peter took her hand and led her into the starship. The door closed behind them.

Wang-mu sat down on one of the swiveling chairs inside the small metal-walled room. She looked around, expecting to see something strange and new. Except for the metal walls, it could have been any office on the world of Path. Clean, but not fastidiously so.

Praise for Children of the Mind

“The novels of Orson Scott Card’s Ender series are an intriguing combination of action, military and political strategy, elaborate war games and psychology.” —USA Today

“In his afterword, Card declares, ‘The ideal presentation of any book of mine is to have excellent actors perform it in audio only format,’ and he gets his wish. Card’s phenomenal emotional depth comes through in the quiet, carefully paced speech of each performer. This is a wonderful way to experience Card’s best-known and most celebrated work, both for longtime fans and for newcomers.”—Publishers Weekly on Ender’s Game

“The cast… gives life to the emotional and intellectual challenge of the story. Brilliant and compelling.” — AudioFile on Speaker for the Dead
