Earth and its society have been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin's victory over the Formics. The unity forced upon the warring nations by an alien enemy has shattered. Nations are rising again, seeking territory and influence, and most of all, seeking to control the skills and loyalty of the children from the Battle School.
But one person has a better idea. Peter Wiggin, Ender's older, more ruthless brother, sees that any hope for the future of Earth lies in restoring a sense of unity and purpose. And he has an irresistible call on the loyalty of Earth's young warriors. With Bean at his side, he will reshape our future.
Here is the continuing saga of Bean and Petra, and the rest of Ender's Dragon Army, as they take their places in the new government of Earth.

"Fans will enjoy an exciting, fast-paced plot and a suspense-filled conclusion." (Amazon.com)
"Once again, Card keeps the action, danger, and intrigue levels high." (Booklist)
Very good story and I knew once I heard it I had to get a copy for myself... I have listened to this story and the whole series four times at least now
After starting this book, I read a couple of reviews talking about babies and not having gotten to that part, thought they were overreacting. But oh the cringe.. Babies babies babies.. It almost looks forced, and the characters become stupid because of the babies and the story starts resembling a teenage TV show.. Oh and don't get me started on Peter...
So much whine in the performance, the narrator portraying this emo whatnot shift in his character.
Hopefully the following books get back on track.
Excellent job of forecasting what the earth would be like with several powerful and ambitious leaders all trying for worldwide domination.
Worst of the entire Ender series. Disgustingly political in a universe we've come to expect respect.
Shadow Puppets, by Orson Scott Card is an excellent sequel to Ender's Shadow. Card creates a whole new perspective of science fiction, showing different character's perspectives including that of the antagonist.
This story should be listened to by more mature minds; those that can handle death and banter of lovers. This book is also for the slightly more scientific and technical minds who enjoy analyzing and solving problems.
The story has too much religious fervor, for my tastes. I'm hoping the next episode is better.
