Similar to the sequels to Ender's game, this is much slower book involved with taking the power on Earth after Formic wars. And though it provides interesting setting for all the Battle school children, it is rather simplified to duel between Bean and Achilles. Also, there is rather unconvincing tra...

back in '97 or thereabouts a friend mentioned that Orson Scott Card had followed Ender's Game with two sequels. I was vaguely aware of this fact. the friend said, "together many the two books, or was it three?, are worth the original Ender's Game." before reading any of the sequels, my response was ...

a sequel to Ender's Shadow. All the Battleschool children, except Ender, are back on earth. Achilles kidnaps a bunch of them to take over the world, tries to kill Bean. Bean hooks up with Peter Wiggins, who reveals himself and the world changes. I doubt I will read any of the novels after this o...

Still entertaining. Card has an ability to invent characters that you actually care about. Well... at least one, Bean. Bean is quickly becoming one of my favorite protagonists. Not a brooding hero, by no means stupid. He deals with his problems like a real person would - as they come along. T...
