Bean's past was a battle just to survive. He first appeared on the streets of Rotterdam, a tiny child with a mind leagues beyond anyone else. He knew he could not survive through strength; he used his tactical genius to gain acceptance into a children's gang, and then to help make that gang a template for success for all the others. He civilized them, and lived to grow older. Then he was discovered by the recruiters for the Battle School. For Earth was at war - a terrible war with an inscrutable alien enemy. A war that humanity was near to losing. But the long distances of interstellar space has given hope to the defenders of Earth - they had time to train military geniuses up from childhood, forging them into an irresistible force in the high-orbital facility called the Battle School. That story is told in two books, the beloved classic ENDER'S GAME, and its parallel, ENDER'S SHADOW. Bean was the smallest student at the Battle School, but he became Ender Wiggins' right hand, Since then he 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 and his wife Petra yearn 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.… (mehr)

Shadow of the Giant (Ender, Book 8) (Ender's Shadow) by Orson Scott Card (date?)

Thought experiment about a future political Earth. I don't believe it. ( )

I wish this series hadn't focused so much on the war/political side of things. I was far more interested in the personal stories, especially Bean and Petra's. I spent a good deal of this book bored with so much time dedicated to world events. But that ending. Oof. As painful as those moments are, the book would have been better with more focus on the heart-wrenching stuff. Gosh OSC, why can't you just write the book I want? :) ( )

Shadow of the Giant completes the story of the geopolitical transformation after the Formic Wars, and thus also completes the story of Peter the Hegemon and of several former battle school cadets. Well, at least as far as their Earth-wise career goes, anyway.

This is fairly interesting, but in truth, I felt it was a little bit convenient how everything just fell into place for Peter. We have this complex geopolitical situation that stretches three and a half books - powerful nations taking over half the globe, brilliant leaders forming invincible coalitions etc. Then some powerful magic from Bean, Peter and Petra and poof, we have world hegemony under a single man. Card's problem is that while his battle school children are geniuses, he is not. So he is left with the task of inventing ingenious plans for these children that then turn out to be not so brilliant that any smart person could not think of of. An execution of such a plan then requires that the battle school cadets on the other side fail to foresee them or make really pedestrian mistakes, hurting the whole brilliancy theme and credibility of the series in the process.

Of course, this geopolitical wrangling again serves as a backdrop to the story of Bean and Petra and their teenage pregnancy romance, which in turn serves as a vehicle of reader indoctrination into Mormon views on life, love and family. Thread carefully then, though in all fairness, this book is not the worst in the series in this regard. ( )

A satisfying end to the Bean chronicles. Card's ability to tell vastly different types of stories (compare the Shadow series style with the Speaker series style) while consistently proving entertaining is absolutely amazing. ( )
