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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Card's latest installment in his Shadow subseries…does a superlative job of dramatically portraying the maturing process of child into adult…. Card makes the important point that there's always more than one side to every issue. Fans will marvel at how subtly he has prepared for the clever resolution. Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Shadow of the Giant

  • Shadow of the Giant is a fitting and satisfying continuation to the Ender series, although it is not a conclusion. Card...seems to indicate that he will at some point return to follow Bean's family and the other Battle School Children as they expand throughout the galaxy. SF Site.com
  • Once again, Card keeps the action, danger, and intrigue levels high...paves the way for further Ender-Bean developments; and leaves his readers eagerly awaiting them. Booklist on Shadow Puppets

    " I read out of order... dag-nab-it! Still a really good read. I love all of Card's books I've read so far! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jordan Neal | 2/5/2014

    " After the disappointment of "Ender in Exile" I approached this book skeptically. The skepticism was needed. The book proved to be a natural extension of the "Ender's Shadow" series that ties some lose ends but leave enough open for Card's fabled final book of the series. While his attempt at revisiting young Ender win "Ender in Exile" was a failure, he does not disappoint in this deep and adventurous novel. "

    " It was somewhat interesting, but it felt very incomplete and a little exploitative. I really expected a lot more for the cost, but I didn't even feel like it delivered a solid novella. It did at least give a nice conclusion to Bean's story, although I'm not sure it really needed more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by D. Redhawk | 12/12/2013

    " A great little read... I say 'little' because I read it in a day. It's not as extensive as previous Ender sagas are, but still brings some good information to the Formics table. I learned more about the Buggers than I've ever known before, as well as finally finding out what happened to Bean and his children. I'm glad I picked this baby up! "
