Orson Scott Card has managed to do what Robert Jordan could not: he develops a world, characters, history, politics and blends it all together so seamlessly that you forget that it is just a story.

Like Robert Jordan's books, the cast has grown and the world has become more intricate in its politics and deeper in its culture, but unlike Jordan, Card pulls it all together. As a writer, I just shake my head with my mouth hanging open. How did he do it?

In The Call of Earth, the Oversoul realizes that it doesn't have all the answers. Maybe it needs to depend on the wisdom and wit of humans to find the answers. So begins another journey in the Homecoming series.

Kevin Schvaneveldt This series is ok. But comparing it to the wheel of time... This is a finger painting next to a DaVinci.
