  • They're Back

    Here we are again, at the start of another Card trilogy. To say I was excited to read this would have been an understatement. As with most Card series, the first book starts the trilogy out strong. This takes place at the start of the Second Formic War. The survivors from the last war are all back. Ukko is now the Hegemon, Lem has taken over his father’s company. Victor and Mazer work together to come up with new gear to help survive the coming war. Bingwen has turned into quite a soldier. The IF is an inefficient political quagmire and the Formics are in the Kuiper Belt preparing to invade. All the players are in place ready for the drama to unfold. While the focus is on the Formics, the majority of the drama comes from the political idiocy of the IF, especially concerning Mazer. We also get to see the start of the battle school and why child soldiers were brought in to fight in the place of adults. All of these little bits of Enderverse history make me appreciate Ender’s Game even more. As with the First Formic War trilogy, I highly recommend if you are an Ender’s Game fan.

  • Excellent continuation of the series. I look forward to next instalment.

    Great story. It leaves me wanting more. Bring on the next one Mr. Card.

  • Long setup to the series

    Like in Russian novels, this book sets up the longer series by introducing you to all the characters, minus the Formics which is a terrible mistake. Some action is thrown in to alleviate the seemingless minute exploration of the characters' minds. Disappointingly, the Space Force is totally led by careerists, misanthropes, schemers and cowards. It would almost be worthwhile to wipe out our race just to exterminate them. I'll give the second volume a try and hope that the Formics become at least somewhat explored.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Decent continuation

    A great story. A bit less misogynistic than most of Card's work although most female characters exist only to marry and make babies

    Thanks for your feedback!
