(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.
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!
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.)

The first two books in this set are amazing. The third one is a lame attempt at a movie deal. You can see Hollywood written all over it. Read morePublished on April 11, 2008 by Metal By Numbers
This is the first book I have read in ages. The book had a nice pace to it which just drags you in the story. The story (r)evolves around a number of characters. Read morePublished on March 1, 2008 by D. Khan
