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.

This book, as all by OSC, is fabulous and well written. I did not find it as exciting as some of the others in the Ender and Bean sagas, but it is certainly entertaining and welcome. It is, as OSC admits in his afterword, somewhat of a "midquel" for both sagas, yet primarily for Ender's. And for all the questions answered and gaps filled by Ender in Exile, I have been left wanting more. This "Enderverse" is just so very good. I look forward to Shadows in Flight, and perhaps even another Ender novel (?). Or two?
This book is awesome, Ender's game is the first book I ever read that had me immediately hooked on an entire series. OSC has never let me down, and he certainly hasn't with this one.
This is the only book that has ever brought me to tears
(not almost brought to tears, I actually started crying when I read this book)
I love this book
