Description

Ender’s Shadow explores the stars in this all-new novel...

At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten--a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth’s history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come.

For there in space before them lies a derelict Formic colony ship. Aboard it, they will find both death and wonders--the life support that is failing on their own ship, room to grow, and labs in which to explore their own genetic anomaly and the mysterious disease that killed the ship’s colony. Shadows in Flight is the fifth novel in Orson Scott Card's Shadow Series.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 28, 2011 – Card’s fifth novel narrated by Julian “Bean” Delphiki (after Shadow of the Giant) mingles transcendent strangeness and didacticism. On a spaceship cut off from the rest of civilization, Julian is raising his three remarkable children, doomed to die young by the engineered genes that also make them inhumanly brilliant. Triplets Cincinnatus, Carlotta, and Ender (named for Bean’s old classmate) are only six years old and already smarter than nearly any adult, but just as emotionally immature as any children. Bean tries setting them up as an incestuously reproducing super-race who will be parents at age eight and dead at 22, but when an unidentified alien ship appears, the children eagerly embrace a less depressing way to prove themselves. Bean’s endless lectures make him appear a mouthpiece for the author; his children’s snarky resentment of being talked down to will similarly ring true for readers.

Customer Reviews

Great but abridged version

I finished reading this book. It was so damned short. Then I wondered why. And I wikied it like I would anything else to read the plot to understand it better because it felt difficult to understand. I could have done it before but I can't ever skip the plot summary so I waited till I finished the book. Anyways turns out this is an abridged version. Hence, the original version being on preorder. I was very disappointed. I was going to go out and buy the book anyways but now I really will have to and reread it but at least it will be the full version. If u look at both versions, the non enhanced has a approximately 100 more pages to it. Just letting u guys know

Great story

My only frustration is in having to wait tell the next book comes out.

Far too short

This was awful expensive for what is essentially a short story completing the story of Bean.
