500 years after Nafai and his family land on Earth, the lands are repopulated and the truth behind the Heroes has long been forgotten. The Nafari, descendents of Nafai and Luet, bicker over the meanings of the history / religious books left by Nafai. And with these questions comes turmoil and power struggle and religious revolution.

It was a strong end to a good series. Card tied things up well, and I enjoyed the message on humility and love that pervaded the story. Though sometimes I wished the good guys would kick some butt.
