"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
Orson Scott Card is a good writer and I enjoyed all of the Enders Game books .
In the end I could not recommend this book to anyone other than fans of the Ender-verse that have read all the other books in the series already.
Wraps up the Bean story in a pretty, little bow, but it felt like it took too long to get there and was rushed in the last bit of the book.
Why would we believe that we could destroy a star faring species with one known planet. Why would a higher intelligence share everything with Ender?Published 1 day ago by Richard Plummer
Orson changed how we think about everything with this book. I always found Bean to be such am engaging character. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Scott Cartwright

The series creates a colorful, smart, and intricate dystopian fantasy world. Card's books are escapism into the far corners of the Universe and even beyond. Read morePublished 20 days ago by John Murphy
