Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The War is over, won by Ender Wiggin and his team of brilliant child-warriors. The enemy is destroyed, the human race is saved. Ender himself refuses to return to the planet, but his crew has gone home to their families, scattered across the globe. The battle school is no more.

But with the external threat gone, the Earth has become a battlefield once more. The children of the Battle School are more than heroes; they are potential weapons that can bring power to the countries that control them. One by one, all of Ender's Dragon Army are kidnapped. Only Bean escapes; and he turns for help to Ender's brother, Peter.

Peter Wiggin, Ender's older brother, has already been manipulating the politics of Earth from behind the scenes. With Bean's help, he will eventually rule the world.

Review:

"In Shadow of the Hegemon, the abilities of Bean and the others to outthink their captors and undermine their plans make for a page-turning read." USA Today

Review:

"[A] fine follow-up to Ender's Shadow....Card's impeccable prose, fast pacing and political intrigue will appeal to adult fans of spy novels, thrillers and science fiction." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Shadow of the Hegemon is so nicely integrated into the rest of the Ender canon that readers will be completely enthralled and left anxiously awaiting the next installment." Booklist

Review:

"Shadow of the Hegemon is an ideal book with which to start your science fiction year." Rocky Mountain News

Review:

"As always with Card, brilliant young people face deadly peril, participate in fast-paced action and heroic deeds, and deal with genuine moral dilemmas with intelligence and thoughtfulness." VOYA

Review:

"The author's graceful storytelling and engaging cast of youthful characters add an extra dimension to an already gripping story of children caught up in world-shaking events. Recommended." Library Journal
