Publisher's Summary

Bean, once the smallest student at the Battle School, and Ender Wiggin's right hand, has grown to be a power on Earth. He served the Hegemon as strategist and general in the terrible wars that followed Ender's defeat of the alien empire attacking Earth. Now he wishes for a safe place to build a family, something he has never known, but there is nowhere on Earth that does not harbor his enemies; old enemies from the days in Ender's Jeesh, new enemies from the wars on Earth. To find security, Bean and Petra must once again follow in Ender's footsteps. They must leave Earth behind, in the control of the Hegemon, and look to the stars.

    "A story of human experience that'll reshape you."

    A beautiful and tragic tale that wraps through political mystery and intrigue w/in the confounds of science. This is a work of OSC that will be remembered as a marquee experience in the genree.

    "makes one remember"

    very few books dredge up great and terrible memories from my past but this one did and blessed me with the ability to look at them from a different perspective.

    "Middlin'"

    It's hard to write a cogent review of this book because it's really just a 'tweener between Shadow Puppets and Shadow in Flight. In this one the continual reminders that Bean is dying are annoying. Interesting insight on Islam (from a Mormon?) As are the continual search for Bean's babies...as if OSC couldn't loose one and then have him/her resurrected in the next book? The geopolitical conflicts were interesting and you have to wonder where OSC obtained those ideas? This completes the "Shadow" series for me...read them all. Liked the first one best.

    "Way better than the last two."

    This is Orson Scott Card at his best. Great story arc and complex characters without the overly simplistic plot devices of alien invasion or super genius pathological killer antagonist.

    "what an ending."

    The performance is amazing as always from these folks. That said, this may be OSC's best writing to date. The last two chapters really put the series into perspective.
