An unidentified ship is rocketing toward Earth with tech far beyond anything ever seen, and the only people who can give warning are a small band of asteroid miners millions of miles from home. The clock is ticking, and it doesn't look good for the human race. From New York Times-bestselling author Orson Scott Card comes the tale of humanity's first contact with the Formics - and the horrible toll it took on mankind.
