Orson Scott Card returns to his best-selling series with a new Ender novel, Ender in Exile.
At the close of Ender’s Game, Andrew Wiggin – called Ender by everyone – is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony’s training facilities, but instead the twelve-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies. With him went his sister Valentine, and the core of the artificial intelligence that would become Jane.
The story of those years has never been told… until now.
This science fiction phenomenon takes place between Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead.,

In reviewing the 20th anniversary edition audiobook of Card’s Ender’s Game, Publishers Weekly stated, “Card’s phenomenal emotional depth comes through in the quiet, carefully paced speech of each performer…In particular, Rudnicki, with his lulling, sonorous voice, does a fine job articulating Ender’s inner struggle between the kind, peaceful boy he wants to be and the savage, violent actions he is frequently forced to take. This is a wonderful way to experience Card’s best-known and most celebrated work, both for longtime fans and for newcomers.”
“Cast members re-create characters and interact with each other smoothly, picking up threads from a number of books in the series. The dialogue moves quickly among them, and the production maintains a strong pace.” —AudioFile
“Card’s prose is powerful here, as is his consideration of mystical and quasi-religious themes. Though billed as the final Ender novel, this story leaves enough mysteries unexplored to justify another entry; and Card fans should find that possibility, like this novel, very welcome indeed. ” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Children of the Mind
“Orson Scott Card made a strong case for being the best writer science fiction has to offer.” —The Houston Post on Xenocide
“There aren’t too many recent sf novels we can confidently call truly moral works, but Speaker for the Dead is one. It’s a completely gripping story.” —The Toronto Star
“This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers–a major SF novel by any reasonable standard.” —Booklist on Ender’s Game
