Foremost among these whiz kids is the brilliant Bean who, in Shadow of the Hegemon, rescued his comrades from his nemesis--the dastardly Achilles. Now, the down-but-not-out evil genius is again scheming towards global domination and vengeance against the irrepressible Bean. It's up to Bean and his newfound love, Petra, to outwit the young psychopath and save the world. Meanwhile, the other Battle School children are called to serve again as an expansionist China threatens the stability of post-Bugger War Earth.
Shadow Puppets is, for better or worse, exactly what readers have come to expect from Card. There are thought-provoking musings on geopolitics, war, courage, arrogance, good versus evil, and the concept of children wise beyond their years dealing with grave responsibility. Unfortunately, many of these furnishings are looking a little frayed around the edges, but fans will enjoy an exciting, fast-paced plot and a suspense-filled conclusion. --Jeremy Pugh --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
This book was a little slow, but interesting enough that I finished it. It humanized Bean, and nicely continued the story.Published 6 days ago by Private9999

This didn't suck me in as the other books did. Felt more like reading up on some mandatory history to bet better able to understand the other booksPublished 18 days ago by Sanne Roemen

A good next book in the Shadow series. A bit much about the military campaigns but context is needed for the storyPublished 1 month ago by Bob in the Keys
