" This book is exactly the reason why I hate all of his works after Shadow of the Giant. Why would he be invovled in a project like this, even if it is to help ot a family memeber. Does he not know it is ripping the exact premise from his masterpiece, Ender's Game. If someone came to me with a idea similar to one of my works, I would throw the person out the door, and never speak or see him or her ever again. I just think is willing to publishing anything to appeal to the masses in order to make money anyway possible. I will never spent any money on any of his new books at all anymore. He has really disappointed me. Shame on you Orson Scott Card. Shame on you. "
