Samenvatting After twenty-three years, Orson Scott Card returns to his acclaimed best-selling series with the first true, direct sequel to the classic Ender's Game. In Ender's Game, the world's most gifted children were taken from their families and sent to an elite training school.
At Battle School, they learned combat, strategy, and secret intelligence to fight a dangerous war on behalf of those left on Earth. But they also learned some important and less definable lessons about life. After the life-changing events of those years, these children—now teenagers—must leave the school and readapt to life in the outside world. Having not seen their families or interacted with other people for years—where do they go now?
What can they do? Ender fought for humanity, but he is now reviled as a ruthless assassin. No longer allowed to live on Earth, he enters into exile. With his sister Valentine, he chooses to leave the only home he's ever known to begin a relativistic—and revelatory—journey beyond the stars.
What happened during the years between Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead? What did Ender go through from the ages of 12 through 35? The story of those years has never been told. Taking place years before Ender finally receives his chance at redemption in Speaker for the Dead, this is the long-lost story of Ender. For twenty-three years, millions of readers have wondered and now they will receive the answers.
Ender in Exile is Orson Scott Card's moving return to all the action and the adventure, the profound exploration of war and society, and the characters one never forgot.

But I will not elaborate so as not to catch the fury of my already angry friend. Oh please, these are not spoilers.
When he was writing that part, he said that that son of his was 30 years old and already married and everything. Very touching as he seemed to be sincere and grateful that this series has become one of the most successful sci-fi series in the world. There is no reason why I should not begin with book 1 sometime soon. Seems like a great series. Aldrin gave me a copy during the said meet up and 3. I know a bit of the two other books and reading them should now be a breeze.

What sets Ender in Exile apart from the the rest of the series is this: A handful of its chapters had already appeared in short story form on Card's online sci-fi zine, Intergalactic Medicine Show.
These stories were interesting and self-contained in their own right. But within the context of a novel, they strike me as being Card's Tom Bombadil: The narrative at hand i What sets Ender in Exile apart from the the rest of the series is this: The narrative at hand is Ender's post-war recovery, discovering the egg and writing the Hive Queen the book , the changing relationship between Ender and the rest of his family, and perhaps most of all, thanks to the dangling cliffhanger dealing with the last of Bean's scattered children.
If you've read the previous books, I don't think it will be any terrible spoiler to call this child by the name he calls himself, Achilles. Each of these compelling plot threads are given at least an adequate, and sometimes a very compelling resolution—but only when I force myself to consider them as further self-contained short stories. Within the context of the novel, each is breezed through with such haste that I was on the second to last page of the book before I realized, "Oh, that was the dramatic climax, wasn't it.
By sandwiching them together with hasty transitions, they are all diminished, competing for attention, never really integrating. Each part, if it had stood alone, would have done better. Summed together, they are all lessened. Or—perhaps better still—leave them as-is on Intergalactic Medicine Show, affirming that Card's contribution to the zine actually has some worth and isn't just a venue for double-publishing the same work.
In my ideal, Ender's recovery, dealing with the last Hive Queen, dealing with his family, and dealing with Achilles would have spanned an entire novel at least as long as Exile instead of a few scattered chapters. The situation on Virlomi's colony world and the development of Achilles deserved far, far more than the two or three chapters they got.
In those two or three chapters, Card telegraphed an emotional punch of a plotline. But I knew I would have cared far more about if I had really known young Achilles, if Ender's post-war troubles had been consistently expessed as an ongoing plot thread that demanded resolution.
The emotional punch Card telegraphed was barely a tap on the shoulder. It still made me wince, but only because I was led to expect more. Card said this is his best Ender book yet. I couldn't disagree more.
Yet, it's not a bad book. It's still Ender, and it's still Card, which means it's still compelling enough fiction for me to keep reading all the way through to the last page within only a few days of downloading it. That's more than I can say for the vast majority of books I download. The highlight of the book for me was Ender's touching reunion with Valentine. So well done.
Though I wouldn't know until later that that early chapter would be the emotional climax of the book for me, it is not diminished. I only wish I could say Ender's collision with young Achilles delivered even a fraction of the catharsis it deserved. Nov 09, Brooke rated it really liked it Shelves: I was skeptical going into this - In fact, I only read it today because it has to go back to the library soon and I didn't want to return it unread.
I kept thinking that it couldn't possibly be interesting since we already know what happens. Could it really be worth reading about events that were already discussed in other Ender books? Of course, I had the same type of reservations about Ender's Shadow and ended up being wowed by that one. Ender in Exile isn't the same sort of homerun that Ender' I was skeptical going into this - In fact, I only read it today because it has to go back to the library soon and I didn't want to return it unread.
Ender in Exile isn't the same sort of homerun that Ender's Shadow was, but that didn't stop me from tearing through it in two sittings. Seeing Ender's thought process following the end of the Formic War was much more satisfying than reading about it as events that had already occurred, as we did in Speaker of the Dead and its sequels. I also really liked witnessing the creation of the colony program and seeing the seed that started the universe we meed in Speaker.
On the downside, I did get a little twitchy about Card retconning things for consistency. In his defense, his afterword explains his reasoning, and his reasoning mostly makes sense. I just worry he's veering into George Lucas territory when he has to start publishing new editions of his old books with changes.
Also, the subplot with Alessandra and her crazy mother seemed sort of tacked on - I couldn't really figure out what the purpose of it was, except to demonstrate Ender's brain power.
I sort of wished they'd been done away with so that there was more time to focus on Ender's recovery and his removal from his family. One thing I wished the book had included was at least one response from Ender's parents to his first letter home.
The text says that they continued to correspond, but we're not told any more than that. His letter packed a powerful punch, and it's a shame we didn't get to see what his parents had to say in return. Although this is billed as a direct sequel to Ender's Game, it wouldn't make any sense without reading the Shadow books first.
The loose threads in Shadow of the Giant are tied up here, and while they only take up a small portion of the book, I can't imagine they would make much sense or have much impact, since it does lay down a short summary without having read the previous books. Nov 06, Becky rated it really liked it. Card, Orson Scott. Ender in Exile. Ender in Exile is the "new direct sequel" to Ender's Game.
And in a way, that's true enough. The novel begins with Ender on Eros. His brother, Peter, and sister, Valentine, are on Earth. One lobbying for his return, the other arguing that he should not be allowed to come home. At all. If Ender was sent home, so the argument goes, he'd be a pawn for governments and militaries to fight over. He'd be targeted by power-hungry individuals for the rest of Card, Orson Scott. He'd be targeted by power-hungry individuals for the rest of his life. With the return of the children come wars and rumors of wars.
Demosthenes--wants better than that for her brother. Valentine loves her brother. If he can't come to her, she'll go to him.
She decides to join her brother in space in his exile. Admiral Ender will soon become Governor Wiggin when he's sent along with Valentine with one of the first I think it is the very first colonization vessels. At thirteen, he doesn't feel ready for the job no matter what anyone on Eros or Earth has to say about his legendary hero status. And there is at least one man on board--a fellow Admiral--who is captain of the ship--Quincy Morgan--who feels that Ender is a sham of a man. He glories himself to be the better man for the job.
And he plans accordingly. This journey will take a little over forty years give or take a month or two. But for Ender--and for the others that remain awake for this flight--it will be just two years.
Who would choose to stay awake when they had the option of sleeping and not aging? You might be surprised at how many. Ender chooses because he wants those two years desperately to make him "mature" into a man that a colony of strangers would respect.
Valentine chooses because it will give her time with Ender She's got plans for writing about Battle School and the Formic Wars. The reader is also introduced to two others that choose to remain awake: Dorabella and Alessandra Toscano. Dorabella is a strange woman living in a fantasy world and dreaming big dreams.
Here is a feisty woman with ambition. Alessandra is the much shyer, much quieter, mostly-obedient daughter who's afraid to stand up to her mother. Where are they going? Colony 1. But this colony is soon given a name: And Ender begins communicating with the governor even before they've left Eros. He wants to know everything about the planet, everything about the people, he wants to make these vital connections, and it's not because he has to.
The reader is introduced to some of these colonists throughout. None will be familiar except Abra. A lot can happen in forty or fifty years. And Andrew and Valentine are not cut off completely from Earth. Not exactly. So we do hear about Peter becoming Hegemon. About the wars on Earth. About Bean and Petra and the others whose adventures we followed in the Shadow books. At some point in the book, Andrew learns about another colony-in-the-making that will be governed by a Battle School graduate named Virlomi.
And on that ship is a child that Graff feels is the missing ninth child of Bean and Petra. He wants Andrew--if he's able--to go to this new Colony if he gets the chance to find out for sure.
The colony in question is Ganges. On this ship and on this colony are several people whom the reader first met in one or more of the Shadow books. So Ender in Exile is also the direct sequel to Shadow of the Giant. It follows a handful of the characters into space.
And we also follow in a limited capacity those left behind--Peter, Petra, Graff, etc. Almost everything that happens but not all of what happens was hinted at in the final chapter of Ender's Game.
There aren't any BIG surprises along the way. The Ender of Ender in Exile is a boy in transition. He's not yet a man. He's not the wise-beyond-his-years Speaker For the Dead. He's a guilt-ridden boy who is burdened by what he's done--the deaths of those two boys, the annihilation of the Buggers--and he is anxious to make amends. He's a good-natured, boy who is seeking answers, always seeking. How does Ender in Exile compare to others in the series? I enjoyed it. While it could never take the place in my heart for Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead, it certainly belongs there with the others.
We've got a good mix of old characters and new characters. The characterization--like always--is great. The plot was as exciting in a way and well paced as others.
This one wasn't as bogged down with politics and strategies. Nor was it bogged down with philosophy. I'm not picking on the other sequels--I happen to enjoy them all--but I also acknowledge that some fans of Ender's Game are turned off by the sequels. I've never been sure how to order these books. But chronologically, they're all over the place. But there are events discussed or mentioned in Ender in Exile from the Shadow books. There are characters introduced in the Shadow books that are a part of the action in Ender In Exile.
So I'm not sure what order to recommend them anymore. I think they can be enjoyed in any order perhaps.

With Ender in Exile, we find Andrew Ender Wiggin, the boy whose brilliant military strategies saved the world from the alien Buggers, coming to terms with how he has caused the deaths of millions while thinking he was only playing a war game.
Card even wrote a new version of chapter 15, to be printed in subsequent editions to match this latest novel, which is an amazing addition to the Enderverse. A more final ending to the Shadow series also plays out here, and though it feels more like a short story added on to the ending instead of part of a full novel.
Card has once again mastered the character of young Ender, and this fully fleshed out version of his early travels will definitely be satisfying reading for anyone who was a fan of the original. See this review and more information on the book and author at Book Him Danno: Mar 15, Ahmad Sharabiani marked it as to-read Shelves: I have no idea what this book is. He just needs to clear his head before writing anything now a days. He has lost his magical touch since writing Shadow of the Giant, which to me is his last great book.
Nov 29, Josh rated it really liked it. Of all the books in the enderverse, my favorites are Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. This "midquel" fits right in between those two and did not dissappoint.
For various reasons I find myself drawn, as I am sure many are, to Ender's character; this transition novel between the young, brilliant, "win-at-all-costs" Ender and his adult self that I came to love in the Speaker series fills in some of the gaps in his character and maturation development.
Becuase of the need to reframe the story, Of all the books in the enderverse, my favorites are Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. I will not mention any spoliers but I do like the way Card brings some unfinished threads together in this novel that were left open at the end of the Shadow series. Finishing the book, as always, is bittersweet as I must once again resurface from the enderverse and find my self in a reality without my best friend Ender.
Readers really do come to love him. After Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead, Exile maybe my "third" favorite - but do not underestimate the "third": Nov 16, Pete rated it it was amazing Shelves: Part of me is nervous every time Card goes goes back to the Ender well, but again I was not disappointed.
This book not being a Bean based book, although I have enjoyed those as well,it was nice to be back with the boy the created the universe. This book takes place between chapter of Ender's Game and does a very nice job setting up the following trilogy more than the book alone did twenty years ago.
I will say that this book was not truly necessary, it did flush out a little more of Ender Part of me is nervous every time Card goes goes back to the Ender well, but again I was not disappointed. I will say that this book was not truly necessary, it did flush out a little more of Ender's character and what this book really hit on was the recovery of Ender the soldier and the reconciliation within himself as well as the lost and surviving soldiers form the formic wars.
It was not a needed book but it was welcomed book that I was more than earger to tear through. Jun 10, Neal Shusterman rated it it was amazing. Mar 14, J. I am really angry that OSC got me so hard, so early, with Ender's Game, such that I want to read about the Wiggin siblings and their world even well past the point where it has become apparent that Card no longer writes books I will enjoy.

No more Orson, no more Ender. My introduction to Orson Scott Card came through a graphic novel I found in one of my bargain book hunts. Originally published by Marvel Comics as a five issue miniseries, this book collects those issues in hardcover. It was a great way to know Ender Wiggin. Here, he was already a battle scarred veteran, who has seen too much death, as he was instrumental in the genocide of an entire race.
Though it was in wartime and done in defense of the human race, he was bothered by the guild of being directly responsible for the termination of a billion beings.
He seems like an interesting character. His young age belies his battle experience and keen strategic and political mind. In this volume, he defuses a mutiny, governs a planetary colony and shepherds it into independence from Earth. I have two options on reading further on this character, the original novels or the two graphic novels that preceded this. He has two volumes of Ultimate Iron Man credited. I will definitely be on the lookout for those and his other Ender work. First of all, Ender in Exile is not a sequel Ender's Game, that title solely belongs to Speaker For The Dead, it is a rewritten version of the last two chapters.
A novel length rewrite, I must add.
When the war ended, everyone at Eros went home one by one. Except for Ender. When the war ended, he had turned into a superweapon in the minds of the politicians, to be used by America against her enemies. Therefore it was in the best interest of everyone that he be made the governor of a colony. The same colony inhabited by the survivors of the Third Invasion, whom Ender had unknowingly lead into battle. The book deals with a detailed account of how Ender is exiled, the time period of two years in the ship.
During this time, E der must learn how to become a proper governor, while at the same time fight in a struggle for power against the captain of the ship, who barely has faith in Ender's skills. All in all, it's a fairly good book. Enjoyable, undoubtedly. Any fan of Enderverse should read it. One thing that confuses me: Graff mentions that he has audited the best software to manage Ender's finance, and that the software is based on the kernel of Ender's fantasy game.
We all know who that was. The question is, how and how much does he know? Nov 08, Britney rated it really liked it Shelves: This book serves a weird role in the Ender series. It's both a direct sequel to Ender's Game and the conclusion to the Shadow series, tying up some threads left by Bean, Petra, Peter, and Virlomi. It contradicts the last chapter of Ender's Game, which Card acknowledges in the afterword and future editions of the book will have a revised final chapter.
But it also expands on that final chapter, to give more backstory to Speaker for the Dead and more fully explain Ender's time as the governor of This book serves a weird role in the Ender series.

I enjoyed this addition to the series, but I really wish that Orson Scott Card didn't change the narrator so frequently. Card can write fantastically in his sleep, although I kind of feel like he snored right through this one a little too much.
It feels like about 3 or 4 short stories that were smooshed together like play-doh. Card makes Ender too much of a Mary Sue character here. He's always right, always has a plan, and is smarter than e Card can write fantastically in his sleep, although I kind of feel like he snored right through this one a little too much.
He's always right, always has a plan, and is smarter than everyone else. The conflicts were not at all suspenseful, and easily overcome by the protagonist. Card's expertise at characterization and dialogue save the book; I loved and cared about the characters and was entertained the whole way. I just expected more.
Jun 04, Blake Petit rated it really liked it Shelves: It was an enjoyable read, but as a book, it doesn't have much of an identity in and of itself. As a fan of the series as a whole and of universe-building works in general, I enjoy the book, but I feel more as though I've read a series of novellas or short stories starring the same characters and linking to larger works instead of a complete novel in and of itself.
Nov 19, Dan Hancock rated it it was ok. I'm honestly not sure this book needed to exist. While it does tie up all the dangling plotlines from the Shadow series, the book as a whole doesn't really have any driving conflict.
It's more just "here's what happened to Ender in the immediate aftermath of the Bugger War.

Thrilled as I am to have another Ender book, I think it would have been better if the Bean stories had just been wrapped up in a novelette, or even better, at the end of the last Shadow book.
Perhaps the main conflict I'm missing is an internal one within Ender, where he has to confront the killer inside, but that conflict was wrapped up pretty nicely, I thought, in the actual Ender's Game sequels.
Jan 13, Tyler Sampson rated it really liked it. If there is still more to come in the series, I welcome it. Feb 21, Emily Allen rated it it was ok. Some parts of this story made me uncomfortable. The moment when Alessandra is trying to "seduce" Ender in particular. It felt weird considering their age as well as the age of the author.
Maybe it was just my discomfort at the subject itself. The book on its own wasn't terrible however it pales in comparison to the original. I don't have much to say about this one, other than that I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The work provides more depth to the Wiggins as a whole, and the pacing was excellent. I particularly liked the Toscano sub-plot. Good book. Mar 22, Mike rated it it was amazing. Exile, is, in this reader's opinion, far more complete than Ender's Game. In the short span of his voyage to his second home, Ender is so much more fleshed out, more well understood.
While I certainly intend to read the rest of the vast Enderverse, Exile may well be the peak by which the others are, unintentionally, measured. Readers also enjoyed. Videos About This Book. More videos Science Fiction. About Orson Scott Card. Orson Scott Card.
