Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, 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.

"An exceptional work." (School Library Journal)
"An absorbing, near-flawless performance." (Kirkus)
"As always, everyone will be struck by the power of Card's children, always more and less than human, perfect yet struggling, tragic, yet hopeful, wondrous and strange." (Publishers Weekly)
I have read every book in this series/world several times and love all of them. But this one is one of my favorites, maybe even the best. Would recommend to everyone.
Great cast and superb story. The authors notes really help put a lot into perspective. Truly better than Hunger games or maze runner trilogy. Even knowing the ending of Enders game this story carries itself as a complete and different story.
I did enjoy the book and the purpose of the book, but the ending wasn't the most pleasing. I enjoyed the beginning and the middle, but the finale didn't leave me thinking.
Easy listen. Rudnicki composes a fantastic narration cast. The full cast evokes an environment of theatrical storytelling that is vibrant in a way that merely reading would not do justice. Bean's story wonderfully complements Ender's it fills out cracks and answers questions that the reader didn't know they had.
If you're a fan of Ender's Game, this book and its descendants are a must read!
