The Shadow Series

The “Shadow Series” begins with the novel ENDER’S SHADOW, which parallels the events of ENDER’S GAME from a different character’s point of view.

Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best.  In ENDER’S SHADOW, Orson Scott Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean—the one who became Ender's right hand, his strategist, and his friend. 

Bean's past was a battle just to survive.  He lived 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 safe and successful.  And he lived to grow older.

Bean's success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters, those people scouring the planet for leaders, tacticians, generals to save Earth from the threat of alien invasion.  Bean was sent into orbit, to the Battle School.  And there he met Ender….

After ENDER’S SHADOW, this series continues the story of what happens on Earth after  Ender leaves.

After the threat of complete annihilation by the Formic aliens is lifted, Earth’s old nations throw off the yoke of the International Fleet, and return to their old warring ways. But there is another Wiggin still on Earth – Peter, Ender’s older brother. The one who was too violent and ruthless for the Battle School.

In SHADOW OF THE HEGEMON, we see Bean becoming Peter Wiggin’s general and strategist, as Peter struggles to mold the newly warring nations of Earth back into the unified force that had been created in response to the Formic invasions.  Old fashioned military tactics aren’t going to get very far when you’ve suddenly got a hundred Alexander the Greats back on Earth.

In SHADOW PUPPETS, Bean and Petra find happiness with each other while the Hegemon takes control of Earth, and of the new far-flung colony worlds. They are creating the foundation of the Starways Congress to come, far in the future.  

But in SHADOW OF THE GIANT, Bean discovers that he, too, can no longer remain on Earth. The genetic tinkering that created his incredible mind has left its mark on his body.  He can no longer tolerate life in the gravity well of a planet. And worse, three of his children share the same mutation.

The next book of the Shadow Series is SHADOWS IN FLIGHT.  Bean and his children are, like Ender, using the effects of near-light-speed travel to outrun time, while on Earth researchers work to discover how to counter the deadly effects of the genetic manipulation that made Bean so inhumanly brilliant.  SHADOWS IN FLIGHT is also available as an enhanced ebook, with dozens of beautiful full color illustrations, maps, and extra content.

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.

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, Orson Scott Card's beloved classic Ender's Game, and its parallel, Ender's Shadow. Now, in Shadow of the Giant, Bean's story continues.

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.

Ender's Shadow

 

Welcome to Battle School.

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.

Bean is a genius with a magician's ability to zero in on his enemy and exploit his weakness.

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 Battle School Bean meets and befriends another future commander - Ender Wiggin - perhaps his only true rival.

Only one problem: for Bean and Ender, the future is now.

Shadow Puppets

 

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.

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.

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.

 

Shadow of the Giant

 

Bean, once the smallest student at the Battle School, and Ender Wiggin's right hand, 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 wishes 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.

Orson Scott Card brings us back to the very beginning of his brilliant Ender Quartet, with the novel that begins The Shadow Series and allows us to reenter Ender's world anew.

With all the power of his original creation, Ender's Shadow is Card's parallel volume to Ender's Game, a book that expands and complements the first, enhancing its power, illuminating its events and its powerful conclusion.

The human race is at War with the "Buggers", an insect-like alien race. The first battles went badly, and now as Earth prepares to defend itself against the imminent threat of total destruction at the hands of an inscrutable alien enemy, all focus is on the development and training of military geniuses who can fight such a war, and win.

The long distances of interstellar space have given hope to the defenders of Earth--they have time to train these future commanders up from childhood, forging then into an irresistible force in the high orbital facility called the Battle School.

Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this new book, card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean--the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers.

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's. 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.

Bean's desperate struggle to live, and his success, brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters, those people scouring the planet for leaders, tacticians, and generals to save Earth from the threat of alien invasion. Bean was sent into orbit, to the Battle School. And there he met Ender....
