Publisher's Summary

Orson Scott Card returns to his best-selling series with a new Ender novel.

At the close of Ender's Game, Andrew Wiggin - called Ender by everyone - is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony.

He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies. With him went his sister Valentine, and the core of the artificial intelligence that would become Jane.

The story of those years has never been told...until now.

Ender in Exile

I have been a lover of science fiction all my life. But somehow I missed out on the Ender series. As a result, I had no idea what Ender in Exile was all about -- except that the really good parts were covered in other books. Don't even think about downloading this selection unless you're up to speed on the prior offerings. That would be like starting the Dune series with a book about sand worms.

Mixed feelinga

I agree this book addresses loose ends from other related books, but it is rather slow and a bit tedious. I found the actual performances on the audio book to be less impressive than other titles I have listened to, and a spoken version of futuristic email addresses (for example) just sounds silly.

One of those books where not much happens

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It's a journey with no destination, and while that can be good if done skilfully, this just didn't have any texture to it. No tension, just somewhat melodramatic relationships pretending to be tension. Card was obviously trying to create similar family dynamics to those he developed in the excellent Speaker for the Dead…did not work.

Loved it!

I'm not sure what other people are talking about with the negative reviews but I've read the books in the time that coincides with the actually stories and this fit perfect.

Although I have read the Speaker Trilogy this sets you up to go right into them and I might reread them.

keep em coming.

Feels more and more real with each installments. having the middle of a characters story so fleshed out long after I am aware of his end point has been unexpectedly enriching. The chronology of the information we get of this character verses the characters time line, in a ways makes the ideas of relativistic effects more conceptually palpable. Another delight. can't wait for the next.

Second Go Around

This is my second time diving into this Enders game series of books. And let me say this one didn’t disappoint the first time. The second time was just as good as the first. I am very glad I re read these books including this one.

Exceptional Even the second time

The actors were all very talented and got the root of the character without overdoing
