The series which tells the story of Ender's Game from a new angle Twice an alien race has attacked mankind, and twice we have only barely survived. Now, the International Fleet is training exceptional children to command in the next war and defend against the threat of total destruction. The next candidate picked for the rigorous Battle School will be Bean, an orphaned runt surviving on the mean streets of Rotterdam. Displaying staggering tactical genius, Bean will soon become right-hand man to the legendary 'Ender' Wiggin. Together they will lead mankind into its final battle - and change the world in ways no one could have predicted. Intended as a parallel series to the compelling Ender Saga, this omnibus edition of The Shadow Saga also stands on its own as a shining example of the best the science fiction genre has to offer. This omnibus edition contains: ENDER'S SHADOW, SHADOW OF THE HEGEMON, SHADOW PUPPETS and SHADOW OF THE GIANT.
