|Author: Orson Scott Card|

From the Publisher:
Having risen to one of Earth's most powerful strategists during the war between Ender and alien attackers, Bean finds his efforts to start a family compromised by his numerous enemies, a situation that forces Bean and Petra to leave Earth behind in the control of the Hegemon. By the author of Ender's Shadow.
This is the fourth installment in the Shadow series, and the eighth novel to be set in the Enderverse, which was launched with the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning classic ENDER'S GAME. Years ago, the children of the Battle School defeated an alien invading force. Now these child-soldiers are all grown up, and taken on adult roles--as commanders of various armies fighting for control over the Earth. As Peter Wiggin, the older brother of their vanished leader, Ender, struggles to find political means to unite the planet, he looks to Ender's second-in-command, Bean, for help. Unfortunately, Bean is dying....
"[SHADOW OF THE GIANT] does a superlative job of dramatically portraying the maturing process of child into adult....Fans will marvel at how subtly he has prepared for the clever resolution." (starred review) 02/21/2005 Kirkus Reviews
"A neat wrap-up." 03/01/2005
Customer Reviews of Shadow of the Giant
The best of all the series, and well worth the wai5/18/2005
I loved Shadow of the Giant. It is moving and provocative, in all the ways good fiction should be. Best of all, I finally felt that I had a complete picture of who Peter Wiggins really was. And the ending... the ending is beautiful and bittersweet and leaves plenty of room for at least two more parallel series, which I hope to see soon. Orson Scott Card rocks!!
