Ender's Shadow explores the stars in this all-new novel...

At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children – the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth's scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten – a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth's history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come.

For there in space before them lies a derelict Formic colony ship. Aboard it, they will find both death and wonders – the life support that is failing on their own ship, room to grow, and labs in which to explore their own genetic anomaly and the mysterious disease that killed the ship's colony.

About the Author

Orson Scott Card is the internationally bestselling author of Ender's Game. He lives in Greensboro, NC.

"Card's latest installment in his Shadow subseries...does a superlative job of dramatically portraying the maturing process of child into adult.... Card makes the important point that there's always more than one side to every issue. Fans will marvel at how subtly he has prepared for the clever resolution." --"Publishers Weekly, "starred review, on "Shadow of the Giant"

""Shadow of the Giant" is a fitting and satisfying continuation to the Ender series, although it is not a conclusion. Card...seems to indicate that he will at some point return to follow Bean's family and the other Battle School Children as they expand throughout the galaxy." --SF Site.com

"Once again, Card keeps the action, danger, and intrigue levels high...paves the way for further Ender-Bean developments; and leaves his readers eagerly awaiting them." --"Booklist" on "Shadow Puppets"
