Ender's Shadow is a parallel book to Ender's Game.
Karen Schwag
I liked the recent movie too, but the book has so much more... Wait on the movie if possible until you've read the book.
Amazon Customer
The book had a nice pace to it which just drags you in the story.

I was a bit miffed that Amazon does not bother to indicate *which* books of the Ender's series are included in this set. So I looked up the ISBN. This collection is also known as "Ender's Saga" and contains the novels "Ender's Game," "Ender's Shadow," and "Shadow of the Hegemon." If you do not already have these titles, this is a great way to get into a fabulous science fiction series for any age. However, if you have already read "Ender's Game" (the first of the series) there are other sets available to round out your collection. Also note that this box set plus the "Beyond Ender's Game" set will give you 6 of the 7 novels with no duplicates (all except "Shadow Puppets", the latest one).

I loved Ender's Game but that is not why I'm writing this. I'm writing to warn everyone who has NOT read Ender's Game about a below review of the book. There is a major SPOILER is Robert D. Steele's review of the book and if you haven't read the book yet, it will really ruin the ending for you. So be warned! I reported the review as inappropriate but who knows if or when they will take it off. Reviews should not include the endings, people! Come on!

The Ender's Game series of books are wonderful. There are at least nine books in this series and the quality of the story line and the character developments are second to none in each and every book. I can't imagine anyone NOT becoming enthralled with these books. It is important to note that the three books in this set do NOT follow Ender Wiggin's personal saga. Ender's Shadow is a parallel book to Ender's Game. It follows the Battle School character of Bean. It provides some interesting insights into what was happening "behind the scenes" during Ender's training and also confirms that Bean is a new type of human. The Shadow of the Hegemon keeps the reader on Earth with Bean and with Ender's ruthlessly ambitious older brother, Peter Wiggin, as they fight with and against other Battle School graduates to unite all the countries of Earth under Peter Wiggin's authority.

(Readers who want to exclusively (or initially) follow Ender's story should buy: Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide and then, Children of The Mind. The order of Bean's "Shadow" books is: Ender's Shadow, Shadow of the Hegemon, Shaddow Puppets and Shadow of the Giant.)

I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed by starting out with this set. Orson Scott Card has created yet another interesting, compelling character in Bean. And the storylines of the "Shadow" books are also of the sort that will make you stay up all night to finish reading them.

I have read this series countless times because it has everything I look for in a story. It has a well thought out plot, it has believable characters, it has a hero you can get behind, it has a twist that can sit up you in bed at 2 in the morning (waking the wife who is naturally mystified at the ruckus.) I liked the recent movie too, but the book has so much more... Wait on the movie if possible until you've read the book. I think I can promise it will be worth it.

I have read in excess of 6000 scifi novels over 30 years of life and have NEVER found a story I would call the equal of Ender's Game. I did not like the Speaker for the Dead or Children of the Mind but; Ender's Shadow (Ender's Game from another perspective), Shadow of the Hedgmon (Ender's Brother Peter), Shadow Puppets (Ender's Team but on Earth without Ender), and Shadow of the Giant (Ender's best Friend) are all excellent. The king however is Ender's Game. Simply a MUST HAVE for any serious Sci-Fi reader. (Not to be confused with Fantasy , why they mix that junk with real entertainment I've never understood.)

Orson Scott Card became one of my favourite qriters becauso of these books. A couple of months ago, I read Ender's Game, and foud it to be an involving well-developed sci-fi book, specially for the psycological depth given to the characters. Quick-paced and enticing, I couldn't stop reading until I was so sleepy at night tahat I HAD to (and, even so, I wasn't so eager to do it!).

Ender's Shadow i mainly the same script, but from the view of Bean, and is certainly as good as Ender's Shadow (both of them, combined, becomes an even more interesting novel). The differing points of view and the alucidation of several unknown events really add to the main story.

Shadow of the Hegemon keeps the quick development and the psycological aspects I was so found of, but addresses a few different questions - not only Earth-based war stategies, but also (and mostly) politics, and religion. Not that the other books didn't address them - they did it alright -, but here they're the main theme, I'd say.

Awesome books. I can't wait to acquire the other Shadow books and then the original Ender series books. I'm a fan now! Try it, and yo won't be dissapointed!

Ender's Game is one of my favorite Sci-Fi books of all time. A definite must-read, and this is a great deal. Forewarning: the sequels go in a much different direction than Ender's Game, but are good quality stories.
