Ender in Exile (Ender Quintet) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
After twenty-three years, Orson Scott Card returns to his acclaimed best-selling series with the first true, direct sequel to the classic Ender's Game.
In Ender's Game, the world's most gifted children were taken from their families and sent to an elite training school. At Battle School, they learned combat, strategy, and secret intelligence to fight a dangerous war on behalf of those left on Earth. But they also learned some important and less definable lessons about life.
After the life-changing events of those years, these children—now teenagers—must leave the school and readapt to life in the outside world.
Having not seen their families or interacted with other people for years—where do they go now? What can they do?
Ender fought for humanity, but he is now reviled as a ruthless assassin. No longer allowed to live on Earth, he enters into exile. With his sister Valentine, he chooses to leave the only home he's ever known to begin a relativistic—and revelatory—journey beyond the stars.
What happened during the years between Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead? What did Ender go through from the ages of 12 through 35? The story of those years has never been told. Taking place 3000 years before Ender finally receives his chance at redemption in Speaker for the Dead, this is the long-lost story of Ender.
For twenty-three years, millions of readers have wondered and now they will receive the answers. Ender in Exile is Orson Scott Card's moving return to all the action and the adventure, the profound exploration of war and society, and the characters one never forgot.
On one of these ships, there is a baby that just may share the same special gifts as Ender's old friend Bean…

"An affecting novel full of surprises." --The New York Times Book Review on Ender's Game
"The novels of Orson Scott Card's Ender series are an intriguing combination of action, military and political strategy, elaborate war games and psychology." --USA Today
“Card's prose is powerful here, as is his consideration of mystical andquasi-religious themes. Though billed as the final Ender novel, this storyleaves enough mysteries unexplored to justify another entry; and Card fansshould 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 "An undeniable heavyweight . . . This book combines Card's quirky style with his hard ethical dilemmas and sharply drawn portraits." --New York Daily News on Ender's Game
"This is Card at the height of his very considerable powers--a major SF novel by any reasonable standard." --Booklist on Ender’s Game

As a side note, as a recently-returned veteran, there was a lot in this story that spoke to me personally. If you are looking for a gift for a recently-discharged veteran who likes to read (and most of us do, Combat Zones are filled with boredom), this is a great way to tell them "Welcome Home" and make them realize that they aren't broken for feeling a combination of shame, pride, confusion, and chronic boredom now that they are civilians. I am not sure if OSC is a veteran, but he certainly encapsulated a feeling that is only a few years younger than war itself.
As a retired Army colonel, I appreciated the scenarios and leadership challenges that Orson Card presented. Readers of all ages and genre will enjoy "Ender in Exile."
I have heard a couple criticisms of the sci fi genre – that alien species aren’t different enough, aren’t varied enough, aren’t thought-out enough. OSC builds the crap out of his world. I buy it and I learn from it and it speaks to my human exprience – and yours I’m willing to bet. I can’t imagine that many other works of sci fi will live up to my now-high expectations. Of course that’s not fair and of course I’ll try. Especially armed with the recommendations of readers much more sci fi familiar than myself.
I had hopes when I heard Orson Scott Card had written Ender in Exile that one of me lifetime favorite stories was continued. I was not disappointed.
I read Ender when it was 1st published in 1985. I was 32 with a toddler and a baby. Now that baby has grown and had 3 children of her own and I just read Enders game to the 13 year old. She loved the movie. She says the book is better!

And I'm sorry but the pictures of the characters after every few chapters were just horrible and ill thought out! When you've read so many Ender books over the years, and given the excellent characterization you build up an image of the characters in your mind, and then to see them illustrated poorly like cartoon characters ruins that image in one fell swoop. Seeing Bean as some cartoon giant just erased the strong somewhat dark image that had been depicted over a number of great books.
While this book might fill in a few gaps I wish I hadn't read it because previously I remember the Ender series as powerful, exciting, sometimes moving - but reading this has nullified that and somewhat spoiled the feel of the whole series.
Sorry to be negative but I don't think OSC did justice to his magnificent series with this book, quite the opposite in fact.
