Book Description
In "Enders Game", the world's most gifted children were taken from their families and sent to an elite training school. At "Battle School", they learned combat, strategy, and secret intelligence to fight a dangerous war on behalf of those left on Earth. But they also learned some important and less definable lessons about life. After the life-changing events of those years, these children - now teenagers - must leave the school and readapt to life in the outside world. Having not seen their families or interacted with other people for years - where do they go now? What can they do? Ender fought for humanity, but he is now reviled as a ruthless assassin. No longer allowed to live on Earth, he enters into exile. With his sister Valentine, he chooses to leave the only home he's ever known to begin a relativistic - and revelatory - journey beyond the stars. What happened during the years between "Ender's Game" and "Speaker for the Dead"? What did Ender go through from the ages of 12 through 35? The story of those years has never been told. Taking place 3000 years before Ender finally receives his chance at redemption in "Speaker for the Dead", this is the long-lost story of Ender.
For twenty-three years, millions of readers have wondered and now they will receive the answers. "Ender in Exile" is Orson Scott Card's moving return to all the action and the adventure, the profound exploration of war and society, and the characters one never forgot. On one of these ships, there is a baby that just may share the same special gifts as Ender's old friend Bean...

    i started this book with a lot of prejudice. i didn't like very much the prequels of "ender's game" and i had a lot of doubt about
    an in-between (this book is set between "ender's game" and "speaker for the dead".
    yet i'm always interested in orson scott card stories in the enderverse.
    at the beginning the book is kind of boring. the device of using email as a substitute for dialogues or narrative works on and off
    after a while the books gets better. i'm not totally convinced that there aren't contradictions between this book and the other two,
    but i decided not to look to deep and just enjoy the reading.
    so four stars are the result: a readable, enjoyable book without the heights of the other books.

    The true sequel to my all-time favorite book (it only took 20 years for it to be written). While I love Speaker for the Dead and really enjoyed all of the Shadow books, this is truly a pleasure to read and relive the joy and pain of Ender's life (and mine from 20 years ago).
