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 3000 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.

On one of these ships, there is a baby that just may share the same special gifts as Ender’s old friend Bean

    I truly can't get enough of the writings by OCS and all those who collaborate to make the Ender series what it is. I've ready through many of the books multiple times and this will be one more to read multiple times. Thank you for writing such wonderful books that challenge my thinking.
  • Another great tale...

    By 8bitme!
    No complaints here... Nice fulfilling story...
  • sequel? great on its own

    By dacure
    after starting with Ender's Game I wanted to pick a sequel and decided to go with Ender in Exile instead of the previously written works that followed EG... Ender in Exile does not disappoint and makes a prefect launching point into the next volume in the saga. The writer's afterword made clear several conflicting story points and mentioned a rewritten Chapter 15 to Ender's Game...
  • What happened to Alessandra?!

    By Geekmaster13
    Good book but at the end he leaves a great character behind and just stops with the character completely before the end of the book and should at least be told what happened to the character at the end.

    I have read many books by Orson Scott Card, and this is one of his best. His understanding of human psychology and his love of humanity comes though in a way that few writers can equal. I am in love with his characters all over again, and I am inspired to love more deeply and treasure my own life more. Thank you for continuing to write!
  • Wonderful by word!

    This was just great! It was a great follow-up to the Ender's game and The shadow of the Giant and front story to Speaker to the Dead and it was just so great. Well, if you hate the main character getting hurt, perhaps not, but I don't mind and it was really exciting too.
