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.

    "Overlap"

    There were a couple times where the audio overlapped. It wasn't too bad that u couldn't understand what was being said, but it did interrupt the visual of the store by making u concentrate on the twin audio. Overall the the book was good. I found a few parts were dragged out & became a lil frustrated to get the story moving along. However, it was a good listen & I enjoyed it.

    "Renewed love for the series!"

    Renewed love for the series! Also would strongly encourage readers to read the book of short stories released before this book. Gave a lot more insight into the parents.

    "Great book"

    This was one of the best audio books I have ever listen to. The problem is, is that it was also one of the saddest and most heart wrenching books I have ever listened to.

    "Another Win for the Enderverse!"

    I like this book much better than the one that comes just before it. There are still a few problems occasionally with the audio, but nothing that I remember being too distracting. Another great book by Orson Scott Card!

    "Get better as they go"

    Ive been listening to these books in the order they were printed and the series just keeps getting better and better. At first I didnt know if I would enjoy the story without Ender in it, especially if it focused on Peter, but Scott makes you live all his characters. Powerful ending to the current set of books. I will miss these characters greatly. Sad the ride is over, but wouldnt want to miss it for anything. Dont miss this one!!!

    "Ends the Bean series on a good note."

    Good narration and much better story than Shadow Puppets. Great way to end the series.
