The latest installment in the Ender's Shadow series and a direct sequel to Shadow of the Giant. Bean and his genius children have been travelling at lightspeed for the last 5yrs and he has now grown so large that he spends his time in bed with a low gravity to keep the strain on his heart as low as possible. The children are 6, they are brilliant in genetics, engineering, and tactics but in many ways are still just children without any experience to draw upon and now Bean's time is drawing near and he is looking forward to what kind of life they have once he's gone.
I admit to being disappointed with the last couple of books from Mr. Card but not this one. Good story, nice character development, interesting twists.
