Orson Scott Card brings us back to the very beginning of his brilliant Ender Quartet, with the novel that begins The Shadow Series and allows us to reenter Ender's world anew.

With all the power of his original creation, Ender's Shadow is Card's parallel volume to Ender's Game, a book that expands and complements the first, enhancing its power, illuminating its events and its powerful conclusion.

The human race is at War with the "Buggers", an insect-like alien race. The first battles went badly, and now as Earth prepares to defend itself against the imminent threat of total destruction at the hands of an inscrutable alien enemy, all focus is on the development and training of military geniuses who can fight such a war, and win.

The long distances of interstellar space have given hope to the defenders of Earth--they have time to train these future commanders up from childhood, forging then into an irresistible force in the high orbital facility called the Battle School.

Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this new book, card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean--the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers.

Bean's past was a battle just to survive. He first appeared on the streets of Rotterdam, a tiny child with a mind leagues beyond anyone else's. He knew he could not survive through strength; he used his tactical genius to gain acceptance into a children's gang, and then to help make that gang a template for success for all the others. He civilized them, and lived to grow older.

Bean's desperate struggle to live, and his success, brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters, those people scouring the planet for leaders, tacticians, and generals to save Earth from the threat of alien invasion. Bean was sent into orbit, to the Battle School. And there he met Ender.

That's it? And people consider him a bad person for that. Everyone is so damn thin-skinned anymore. It's ridiculous.
Oh great, another hate mob looking to cancel a person because they have a different opinion. Seperate the work from the author people. I like Stephen king books but I probably dont agree with his politics. I love Harry Potter but I think J.K Rowling is a bit of a tool. Move on people.
He is a Mormon and has traditional views regarding marriage and family.

This is my favorite book in the series as it follows the story from Bean's perspective. Also agreed on the OSC political crap. Weird how some of my favorite authors are kinda douchebags. H. P. Lovecraft comes to mind...

This book is even better than Ender's Game! OSC isn't woke, but he is a great author.

I think OSC has even criticized Lenin and Foucault.

What did OSC say that was bad? (I'm not up on it...)

Do a quick google search and he's said a number of homophobic things and also said a number of conspiracy theories about Pres Obama

Although that's true, the reason why OSC is disliked by many is because of his personal views, which are more radical than his religious views. Though Mormons have traditional family views, they don't condone being hateful towards people. OSC doesn't represent the average mormon the same way Bernie or Trump don't really represent their political parties. Brandon Sanderson is another author who's mormon, but clearly less radical than OSC (at least one openly gay character in stormlight archive).

I've heard OSC's statements, though I obviously don't agree with them, as long as he doesnt try to push his ideals in his writing, I don't care too much. He's written some great books ( though the later books in the Ender series I feel went off the rails).
