The first volume in the Homecoming saga from bestselling author Orson Scott Card, The Memory of Earth

High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches. Its task, programmed so many millennia ago, is to guard the human settlement on this planet--to protect this fragile remnant of Earth from all threats. To protect them, most of all, from themselves.

The Oversoul has done its job well. There is no war on Harmony. There are no weapons of mass destruction. There is no technology that could lead to weapons of war. By control of the data banks, and subtle interference in the very thoughts of the people, the artificial intelligence has fulfilled its mission.

But now there is a problem. In orbit, the Oversoul realizes that it has lost access to some of its memory banks, and some of its power systems are failing. And on the planet, men are beginning to think about power, wealth, and conquest.

  • Great Read

    By Justin Meek
    This series remains one of the best science fiction/ fantasy series I've ever read. It is a shame it is so overlooked. When I say it is sci-fi / fantasy I mean that literally. The series really does fit both genres. I hate that those categories or often combined erroneously, but in this case it is accurate. If you have not read them they are worth the purchase.
