Publisher Comments:

A sequel to The New York Times bestseller Ender's Shadow.

Bestselling author Orson Scott Card brings to life a new chapter in the saga of Ender's Earth.

Earth and its society has been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin's victory over the Formics — the unity enforced upon the warring nations by an alien enemy has shattered. Nations are rising again, seeking territory and influence, and most of all, seeking to control the skills and loyalty of the children from the Battle School.

But one person has a better idea. Peter Wiggin, Ender's older, more ruthless, brother, sees that any hope for the future of Earth lies in restoring a sense of unity and purpose. And he has an irresistible call on the loyalty of Earth's young warriors. With Bean at his side, the two will reshape our future.

Here is the continuing story of Bean and Petra, and the rest of Ender's Dragon Army, as they take their places in the new government of Earth.

Review:

"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

Review:

"Fans of Card's bestselling Ender series will be delighted with this tale of teen empowerment." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Once again, Card keeps the action, danger, and intrigue levels high; maintains consistency of characterization...paves the way for further Ender-Bean developments; and leaves his readers eagerly awaiting them." Booklist

Review:

"The author's thoughtful storytelling and compassionately moral characters make this a good addition to most sf collections." Library Journal

Following the story of Ender's jeesh in the years after the battle school, Card continues the story of Bean and Peter. Through the turmoil of a world politically at war, the touching story of Bean and Petra reminds readers of life's true, simple pleasures in life...and some not so simple.
