This is the latest of Card's "Ender" series. This time, Ender's friends from the final battle with the Formikans return to Earth, while Ender himself leaves for a distant planet in a colonization ship. After the aliens are destroyed, Earth goverments start to fight each other again, and the great Hegemony fells apart. One by one, Ender's genius friends are being kidnapped by an unknown person that wants to enslave them and use them as generals in his plots to take over the world. Only Bean, the smallest but the smartest escapes this fate. Will he manage to hide for long from this mysterious person, and can he do anything to save his friends?

Another in the series of Ender's Game. After the Buggers are defeated all of the Battle School kids (except for Ender, of course) are returned to Earth to resume their normal lives with their families. Within a few months the battle school kids are all kidnapped, all except for Bean who escapes due to a little blind luck. Bean reverts back to his pre-battle school street smarts and goes into hiding, but hiding and waiting it out just isn't Bean's style, especially when he realizes who's behind the kidnappings. With the help of Sister Carlotta (who happens to have the right contacts in all the right places), Bean enlists the aid of Ender's older brother, Peter, and sets out to rescue his friends. Once again Card's excellent grasp on plot and character development make for another great read.
