Publisher Description

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. Shadows in Flight is the fifth novel in Orson Scott Card's Shadow Series.

Good, not great.

Seems awfully short. This felt like half a story.

Great but abridged version

I finished reading this book. It was so damned short. Then I wondered why. And I wikied it like I would anything else to read the plot to understand it better because it felt difficult to understand. I could have done it before but I can't ever skip the plot summary so I waited till I finished the book. Anyways turns out this is an abridged version. Hence, the original version being on preorder. I was very disappointed. I was going to go out and buy the book anyways but now I really will have to and reread it but at least it will be the full version. If u look at both versions, the non enhanced has a approximately 100 more pages to it. Just letting u guys know

Can I get a refund?

After reading the Ender's Shadow series, all about the life of Bean and other of Enders jeesh mates, and loving every minute of every word.... Shadows in Flight is a huge disappointment. As engaged as I was in Bean's life in the first four books, this fifth and last one left me feeling as though it was written about a different person completely called The Giant and his 3 incredibly precocious 6-year-olds. The book is less than 200 pages of actual story and truly develops almost nothing during that time. In my opinion I would call this one a "why bother" and give everyone who asks their money back just to keep the readers good will. And yes I'm asking.
