While Ender heads off to a faraway planet, Bean and the other brilliant children who helped Ender save the earth from alien invaders have become war heroes and have finally been sent home to live with their parents. While the children try to fit back in with the family and friends they haven't known for nearly a decade, someone's worried about their safety. Peter Wiggins, Ender's brother, has foreseen that the talented children are in danger of being killed or kidnapped. His fears are quickly realized, and only Bean manages to escape. Bean knows he must save the others and protect humanity from a new evil that has arisen, an evil from his past. But just as he played second to Ender during the Bugger war, Bean must again step into the shadow of another, the one who will be Hegemon.
In Shadow of the Hegemon, Card can't help but fall back into old patterns. But while the theme is the same as in previous books--brilliant, tragic children with the fate of the human race resting on their shoulders--Shadow of the Hegemon does a wonderful job of continuing Bean's tale against a backdrop of the politics and intrigue of a fragile earth. While the novel is accessible, new readers to the series would be wise to begin with Ender's Game or Ender's Shadow. --Kathie Huddleston --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Not as good as Enders Game and the Shadow, but as entertaining. Complex, yet plots inside plots that in the end weave together to complete a nice story. Read morePublished 15 months ago by ET
This was an ok book...definitely NOT one of Card's best books. I enjoyed Ender's Shadow and I guess in a way, it was interesting to see what happens to all the Battle School kids... Read morePublished on June 3 2005

Very witty book in which the characters are realistic, the insights interesting, and the plot has enough action to keep a 13-year old boy on the edge of his seat. Read morePublished on Dec 7 2003 by Kirk A. Moll
This book was fun. The action and characters are good. I miss the theological depth that is present in some of the other books but it was worth reading.Published on Nov. 13 2003
