A Sequel to The New York Times Bestselling Ender's Shadow Bestselling author Orson Scott Card brings to life a new chapter in the saga of Ender's Earth and The Shadow Series. Earth and its society has been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin's victory over the Formics--the unity enforced upon the warring nations by an alien enemy has shattered. Nations are rising again, seeking territory and influence, and most of all, seeking to control the skills and loyalty of the children from the Battle School. But one person has a better idea. Peter Wiggin, Ender's older, more ruthless, brother, sees that any hope for the future of Earth lies in restoring a sense of unity and purpose. And he has an irresistible call on the loyalty of Earth's young warriors. With Bean at his side, the two will reshape our future. Shadow Puppets is the continuing story of Bean and Petra, and the rest of Ender's Dragon Army, as they take their places in the new government of Earth.

I hardly ever read books, but this shadow series has converted me to the wonderful world of worded pages. Card's characters are the most intriguing I've ever encountered. His knowledge of History and facination with Great Leaders shines through and works as a great history lesson along with a great story. Be sure to start with Ender's Shadow before you get to this one. You will not be disappointed.
