If you've followed Car'd ender series and his Shadow series then it shouldn't be any surprise that this book will not answer all the questions about the final outcome but then as Card himself has said it wasn't meant ot be. I enjoyed the way Card continues the series in this short novel. In this novel we follow Beans 3 childeren that he has taken with him in his quest to lengthen his life due to the giantism disease he was born with due to Antons key being turned. The three children with have the same genetic problem so he has taken to space at relativistic speed in order for the cure to be found on Earth. The happen to stumble on an ancient Formic Arc. They decide to board the ship and what they find may surprise even the hardcore ender fans. This is a perfect set up for the final book. (Shadows Alive - no release date set yet) It will be interesting to find out how Card will be able to tie both series together. Anyway he does should be worth any wait. I strongly suggest that if you are an Ender/Bean fan at any level you read read Shadows in Flght!

Not the full text!!

Beware! You are not looking at a full text version of the book. It is abridged, hyperlinked and illustrated. I feel like I've been had.

    Maybe I expected too much?

    Like the previous books about Ender and Bean the imagery that came out of the writing is very good. Unfortunately, for me, "Shadows in Flight" seemed like it should be the middle two or three chapters in the middle of a really good novel. Instead, on its own, it read as a short story. I loved all the other "Shadow" books and most of the "Ender" books but this left me feeling like the author did not want to spend the time to write a complete story.

    Disappointed

    I've been waiting for this part of the story for a while and was very disappointed in the length of the story. I was hoping for a much bigger story. I think this was an ok book but definitely not worth the 11.99 I paid for it.
