"Intense is the word for Ender's Game. Aliens have attacked earth twice and almost destroyed the human species. To make sure humans win the next encounter, the world government has taken to breeding military geniuses-and then training them in the arts of war.... The early training, not surprisingly, takes the form of 'games'... Ender Wiggin is a genius among geniuses; he wins all the games.... He is smart enough to know that time is running out. But is he smart enough to save the planet?"
-The New York Times
Speaker for the Dead
In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War.
Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered, but again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery... and the truth.
The war for the survival of the planet Lusitania will be fought in the heart of a child named Gloriously Bright.
On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and Pequininos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought.
But Lusitania also harbors the Descolada, a virus which kills all humans it infects, but which the Pequininos require in order to transform into adults. The Starways Congress so fears the effect of the Descolada, should it escape from Lusitania, that they have ordered the destruction of the entire planet, and all who live there. The fleet is on its way and the second Xenocide seems inevertable.
Until the fleet vanishes.
The task of discovering how the ships were made to disappear falls to Gloriosly Bright, the most brilliant analytical mind in a world of people bred to superintelligence. There is little doubt that she can solve the puzzle; but will she choose life or death for the three races who live on Lusitania?
Children of the Mind
The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: the Pequeninos; a large colony of humans; and the Hive Queen, brought there by Ender. But once again the human race has grown fearful; the Starways Congress has gathered a fleet to destroy Lusitania.
Jane, the evolved computer intelligence, can save the three sentient races of Lusitania. She has learned how to maove ships outside the universe, and then instantly back to a different world, abolishing the light speed limit. But it takes all the processing power available to her, and the Starways Congress is shutting down the Net, world by world.
Soon Jane will not be able to move the ships. Ender's children must save her if they are to save themselves.
Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. Here is the story of another of those precious 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 to survive on the streets of Rotterdam. He was a tiny child with a mind leagues beyond anyone else's. Bean's desperate struggle, and his remarkable 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....
Shadow of the Hegemon
Shadow of the Hegemon is the direct sequel to Orson Scott Card's international bestseller, Ender's Shadow.
The Formic War is over, won by Ender Wiggin and his team of precociously brilliant child-warriors. The enemy is destryed, the human race is saved. Ender himself refuses to return to the planet, but his crew has gone home to their families, scattered across the globe. The Battle School is no more.
But with the external threat gone, the Earth has become a battlefield once more. Nations wish to reassert their sovereignty. The children of the Battle School are more than heroes; they are potential weapons that can bring power to the countries that control them.
One by one, all of Ender's Dragon Army are kidnapped. Only Bean escapes, and he turns for help to Ender's brother, Peter, who has already been manipulating the politics of Earth from behind the scenes. With Bean's help, he will eventually rule the world.
