The long distances of interstellar space have given hope to the defenders of Earth--they have time to train these future commanders up from childhood, forging them into an irresistible force in the high orbital facility called the Battle School.

Bean was sent into orbit, to the Battle School. And there he met Ender....

Ender's Shadow is one of the best science fiction novels every written, ***uming you've already read Ender's Game. I gave this book only one star however because it is narrated by Scott Brick, who is terrible. Do yourself a favor and pick up the paperback.
