Orson Scott Card returns to his best-selling series with a new Ender novel, Ender in Exile.

At the close of Ender's Game, Andrew Wiggin – called Ender by everyone – is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. 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. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony’s training facilities, but instead the twelve-year-old chooses 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.

The story of those years has never been told… until now.

Subj: When Andrew Returns Home

Dear John Paul and Theresa Wiggin,

You understand that during the recent attempt by the Warsaw Pact to take over the International Fleet, our sole concern at EducAdmin was the safety of the children. Now we are finally able to begin working out the logistics of sending the children home.

We assure you that Andrew will be provided with continuous surveillance and an active bodyguard throughout his transfer from the I.F. to American government

Praise for Ender in Exile

Card's prose is powerful here, as is his consideration of mystical and quasi-religious themes. Though billed as the final Ender novel, this story leaves enough mysteries unexplored to justify another entry; and Card fans should find that possibility, like this novel, very welcome indeed."  --Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Children of the Mind

“Orson Scott Card made a strong case for being the best writer science fiction has to offer.”  --The Houston Post on Xenocide

"There aren't too many recent sf novels we can confidently call truly moral works, but Speaker for the Dead is one.  It's a completely gripping story."  --The Toronto Star

"This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers--a major SF novel by any reasonable standard."  --Booklist on Ender’s Game

This is a wonderful way to experience Card's best-known and most celebrated work, both for longtime fans and for newcomers."
