Summary:

The novel that launched the bestselling Ender's Shadow series-available for the first time on unabridged digital audio The human race is at War with the "Buggers," an insect-like alien race. As Earth prepares to defend itself from total destruction at the hands of an inscrutable enemy, all focus is on the development of military geniuses who can fight such a war, and win. The long distances of interstellar space have given hope to the defenders of Earth--they have time to train these future commanders up from childhood, forging them into an irresistible force in the high orbital facility called the Battle School. Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In Ender's Shadow, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean--the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters, those people scouring the planet for leaders, tacticians, and generals to save Earth from the threat of alien invasion. Bean was sent into orbit, to the Battle School. And there he met Ender....

    One of my favorites. If you like Enders Game, then you'll love Enders Shadow.

    I hesitated to listen since I thought it would sort of taint my recollection of Ender's Game but was happily surprised. Great narration, great plot, great character view. If you liked Ender's Game, stop thinking and just listen.

    Nice addition to series. There is still a gap between Swarm and Ender's Game. Suggest a screen play covering Formic Wars up to EG. Once made into a movie, looking at the best story line from post EG novels. 3 volumes tell the whole story. Regret the sub story lines of Victor / Emala, Lem Dukes, and Mazer/ Bingin.
