About the Author

Orson Scott Card is the award-winning author of the Ender saga, the Alvin Maker series and the Homecoming series. He lives with with wife and three children in the US.


Although the smallest student at the Battle School, Bean served Ender Wiggins faithfully until the end of the war and, with him, inherited the new world they and the other child soldiers created. Now, as a powerful part of Earth's ruling Hegemony, headed by Ender's brother Peter, Bean and his wife, Petra, want only to withdraw from the escalating political turmoil and take their children to the stars, where they can hope to live normal lives-but old rivals and new enemies threaten any hope of peaceful resolution. Award-winning sf author Card continues his brilliant Ender saga (e.g., Ender's Game) with a story of love, sacrifice, and duty on the eve of global war. Highly recommended for most adult and YA sf collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

'The emotional punch is still as powerful as ever. Excellent.' SFX 'Haunting, compulsive, urgently readable...Story-telling genius' INTERZONE 'Certain to be one of the most sought-after books of the year' LOCUS 'Full of surprises...Intense is the word for Orson Scott Card's ENDER'S GAME' NEW YORK TIMES

Card's latest installment in his Shadow subseries (Ender's Shadow, etc.), which parallels the overarching series that began with Ender's Game (1985), does a superlative job of dramatically portraying the maturing process of child into adult. The imminent death of Bean, a superhuman 20-something Battle School graduate who suffers from uncontrolled growth due to a genetic disorder, leaves little time for Peter the Hegemon, Ender's older brother, to set up a single world government and for Bean and his wife and former classmate, Petra, to reclaim all their stolen children. When Card's focus strays from his characters into pure politics, the story loses power, but it's recharged as soon as he returns to the well-drawn interactions among Bean's Battle School classmates whose decisions will determine Earth's fate. They were trained to fight a (literally) single-minded alien enemy, but that war is over. Now, as young adults in command of human armies pitted against each other in messy conflicts with no clear solutions, Bean's old cohorts must help create a peaceful future for Earth after they're gone. Card makes the important point that there's always more than one side to every issue. Fans will marvel at how subtly he has prepared for the clever resolution.
