My whole premise for this book series came to me, like so many do, while I was trying to fall asleep. Kind of like counting sheep, I run various plots through my mind, and I was thinking, for some reason, about Ender. What if he actually lost? What would the military do?
Almost a hundred thousand words and two books later, a war is raging for control of the Earth. I’m not sure what happens next, but suffice to say, it will be bloody and devastating, and final victory isn’t guaranteed. Whatever way it goes, the Empress will fly again, General Warren will risk all, and the Scouts will be in the thick of the fighting.

Like the previous book, this one has you on the edge of your seat the whole time. It is a very detailed description of how regular soldiers would handle an alien invasion from the viewpoint of an experienced soldier.
Unlike most other authors the tension is very real as no character, no matter how well established is safe. You find yourself connecting with the characters and experiencing along with them their exuberance of defeating an occupying enemy and the grief of lost comrades in the violence of ultra-modern combat.
