I read the series out of order. This is a prequel which has some spoilers in the main series (starting at the Ender's Game). I will say was a fantastic book, author kept me glued ....had a hard time putting the book down. ( )

I did not know what to expect when I started this. I mean, I loved Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow and liked the various sequels. But it was a co-written book and I had heard that while the plot and story line was Orson's it was the other author who did all the writing. So, I felt that the characterizations would be less than I expecte and thus the overall book would suffer.

I was wrong, it was a great start to the series and the characters became people I was interested in. While I could tell the difference in some small way I overall felt I was reading a Orson Scott Card book.

This book of course sets things up for the series but it is not overly long in doing so. It never felt drawn out or got boring. I will now move on the next one.

A great addition to the Ender Series. ( )

I loved Ender's Game, but I always felt like it was dropped in the middle of a story while reading it. I had a lot of unanswered questions. This book, and the next two, should answer a lot of my questions. After reading them, I'll probably have to read Ender's Game again. ( )
