div p The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt beyond Pluto Other mining ships and the families that live on them are few and far between this far out So when El Cavador s telescopes pick up a fast moving object coming in system it s hard to know what to make of it It s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light br br El Cavador has other problems Their systems are old and failing The family is getting too big for the ship There are claim jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt Worrying about a distant object that might or might not be an alien ship seems not important br br They re wrong It s the most important thing that has happened to the human race in a million years The first Formic War is about to begin p div, 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, b Welcome to Battleschool b br br Growing up is never easy But try living on the mean streets as a child begging for food and fighting like a dog with ruthless gangs of starving kids who wouldn t hesitate to pound your skull into pulp for a scrap of apple If Bean has learned anything on the streets it s how to survive And not with fists He is way too small for that But with brains br br Bean is a genius with a magician s ability to zero in on his enemy and exploit his weakness br br What better quality for a future general to lead the Earth in a final climactic battle against a hostile alien race known as Buggers At Battleschool Bean meets and befriends another future commander Ender Wiggins perhaps his only true rival br br Only one problem for Bean and Ender the future is i now i br, 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
