Orson Scott Card – Ender in Exile

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

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 12-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.

stimulation uncaring

This book really seemed to me to almost be too much of a ‘tying up of loose ends’ in the ender series rather than some of the more stellar (pun intended) writing that Mr. Card has done. I believe that what seemed lacking most to me was much of the wonderful character development that I have come to expect from each new OSC Novel. In brief if you enjoy the Ender series and have read everything else in it then this is a must read as it does shed more light on some parts of the Enderverse. This is NOT a good book for someone reading into this story for the first time.
