Three thousand planet-bound years have passed while Ender the star-traveller remains young. In that time his name has become anathema, for he is the one who killed an entire race of thinking, feeling beings. No other has been found - until Lusitania is discovered. The young race there offers mankind a chance to redeem the previous destruction. The only humans allowed near are trained xenobiologists. But once again there are tragic misunderstandings. And when Ender, as Andrew Wiggin, is called to Lusitania to speak for the dead - to present to the community the terrible truth of why men have been killed by aliens - his actions can, and will, reverberate through an entire galactic empire.
415 pages. Softcover. Good condition. FICTION. In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugge War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered, but again the alien's ways are strange and frightening...again. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth. (Key Words: Orson Scott Card, Science Fiction, Aliens, Truth).
Whole new twist with Ender all grown up and trying to make peace between others and also with himself.

This is a sequel to "Ender's Game", an excellent sci-fi novel. "Speaker for the Dead" has a very different premise than "Game" and ingenious plotting. Be sure to read "Ender's Game" first. The rest of the Enders books are not worth bothering about; not one of them comes close to "Ender's Game" or "Speaker for the Dead."

This second installment in Card's famous series is almost as good as its predecessor. This book takes the tale of Ender even further. It is slightly more complex in its plot line but it is a truly rewarding read. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoyed the first book and for all fans of science fiction.
