Welcome to Battleschool. 

Growing up is never easy. But try living on the mean streets as a child begging for food and fighting like a dog with ruthless gangs of starving kids who wouldn't hesitate to pound your skull into pulp for a scrap of apple. If Bean has learned anything on the streets, it's how to survive. And not with fists. He is way too small for that. But with brains.

Bean is a genius with a magician's ability to zero in on his enemy and exploit his weakness.

What better quality for a future general to lead the Earth in a final climactic battle against a hostile alien race, known as Buggers. At Battleschool Bean meets and befriends another future commander - Ender Wiggins - perhaps his only true rival.

Only one problem: for Bean and Ender, the future is now. Ender's Shadow is the book that launched The Shadow Series, and the parallel novel to Orson Scott Card's science fiction classic, Ender's Game.

    " A little bit simple and author can't decide if character was strangled or stabbed, but still interesting. Reminds me of Niven, giving interpretation of same events from different characters. "

    " FANTASTIC! I must admit, I'm VERY jealous of the ingeniousness that went into this story. Though of course there is always a flaw somewhere, Ender's Shadow will not be know for any flaw it MAY have, it will be known for its surprising insight into the workings of the world. "

    " I've enjoyed a lot. I've read it after "Ender's Game" and It's a very diferent point of view. "

    " This book is probably just as good as "Ender's Game". I found Bean to be a more interesting character than Ender, so this book was one that I was looking forward to reading - and I was not disappointed. Card's parallel telling of the tale from a different perspective is quite fascinating and not redundant. "
