Andrew Ender Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games he is in fact engaged in something far more desperate The result of genetic experimentation Ender may be the military genius Earth desperately needs in a war against an alien enemy seeking to destroy all human life The only way to find out is to throw Ender into ever harsher training to chip away and find the diamond inside or destroy him utterly Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins He will grow up fast br br But Ender is not the only result of the experiment The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years and the quest for the perfect general has been underway almost as long Ender s two older siblings Peter and Valentine are every bit as unusual as he is but in very different ways While Peter was too uncontrollably violent Valentine very nearly lacks the capability for violence altogether Neither was found suitable for the military s purpose But they are driven by their jealousy of Ender and by their inbred drive for power Peter seeks to control the political process to become a ruler Valentine s abilities turn more toward the subtle control of the beliefs of commoner and elite alike through powerfully convincing essays Hiding their youth and identities behind the anonymity of the computer networks these two begin working together to shape the destiny of Earth an Earth that has no future at all if their brother Ender fails br br from author s web site, div b A Sequel to i The New York Times i Bestselling i Enders s Shadow i b br br Bestselling author Orson Scott Card brings to life a new chapter in the saga of Ender s Earth br br Earth and its society has been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin s victory over the Formics the unity enforced 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 br br 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 the two will reshape our future br br Here is the continuing story of Bean and Petra and the rest of Ender s Dragon Army as they take their places in the new government of Earth br div, The war for survival of the planet Lusitania will be fought in the hearts of a child named Gloriously Bright br br On Lusitania Ender found a world where humans and pequininos and the Hive Queen could all live together where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last Or so he thought br br Lusitania also harbors the descolada a virus that kills all humans it infects but which the pequininos require in order to become adults The Starways Congress so fears the effects of the descolada should it escape from Lusitania that they have ordered the destruction of the entire planet and all who live there The Fleet is on its way and a second xenocide seems inevitable, i At first Ender believed that they would bring him back to Earth as soon as things quieted down But things were quiet now had been quiet for a year and it was plain to him now that they would not bring him back at all that he was much more useful as a name and a story than he would ever be as an inconvenient flesh and blood person i br br At the close of i Ender s Game i Andrew Wiggin called Ender by everyone knows that he cannot live on Earth 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 br br He is offered the choice of living under the Hegemon s control a pawn in his brother Peter s political games Or he can join the colony ships and go out to settle one of the new worlds won in the war br br The story of those years on the colony worlds has never been told until now br br i The voyage was long By the end of it Val had finished the first volume of her history of the bugger wars and transmitted it by ansible under Demosthenes name back to Earth and Ender had won something better than the adulation of the passengers They knew him now and he had won their love and their respect i br br Ender was twelve when he chose 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 He wrote The Hive Queen and The Hegemon and his sister wrote The Speaker for the Dead br br He served as governor of his first colony world but now Ender is on the move looking for a planet where the hive queens might be reestablished br br What he finds in the Ganges colony is more than he bargained for a resentful governor who caused a devastating war on Earth and a brilliant young colonist who is out to destroy him starting with his reputation and ending perhaps with his life
