Synopsis

Ender's Shadow follows Bean, a friend of Ender's in Battle School, as he grows up on the harsh streets of Rotterdam, gets accepted by the I.F., and is taken to Battle School. From there it's basically another view of Card's first book in the Ender series, Ender's Game.

Review

Card is very good at drama and dialog, and I think this book showcases that very well. I also like the characters he develops very much. A good read.
