One step forward, two steps back sums up Frank Sage’s day-to-day on Makaum. No sooner does he get the drug cartels under control than a major political assassination stirs civil unrest to a fever pitch. Makaumans never wanted to choose sides in the Terran/Phrenorian war, but frustration, fear, and resentment are turning the tide against peacekeeping efforts.
As street skirmishes rage on, the Terrans’ most powerful on-planet ally works with Sage’s superior officer to isolate insurgent cells—and outmaneuver the general who wants to yank troops from Makaum before their job is done. Meanwhile, the assassin who’s targeting powerful figures from all factions is still at large.
Amidst the chaos, Sage must keep his eye on a lethal “prize”—the secret armory and headquarters where the Phrenorians have been stockpiling weapons, munitions, and war machines. The mission to infiltrate will put him on a collision course with Zhoh GhiCemid, his ruthlessly ambitious Phrenorian counterpart. As dangerous as ever, Zhoh isn’t afraid to die—and would like nothing better than to take Sage down with him.
The challenge repeats itself when humankind is forced to flee the doomed solar system from an incoming danger. In various galactic environments, often hostile, will humankind survive? Will men return to warfare measures against one another as the number of colonies multiply on foreign planets? Will the human race maintain common values despite the growing distance between their frontiers? Will they return to a double-faced justice system to match the color of the day?
As foreign civilizations unite, this last volume of The Eden Democratic Kingdom trilogy keeps the door open to another adventure series: The Eden Galactic Confederation.
Nuclear war reduced the global population from fifteen billion to barely one hundred million survivors. Much of the planet’s surface is highly radioactive. Sources of food, clean water, and medical supplies are increasingly scarce. Isolated regions made distribution of supplies even harder to operate. In a time when co-operation is imperative, self-interest continues to prevail in many parts of the globe.
Amidst this growing chaos, a new generation of leaders emerges to guide Eden into an uncertain future filled with incredible new technologies and daunting challenges. As they struggle to provide leadership through humanity’s darkest days, they must also preserve what little survives of nature’s blessings. Can they build hope for a new world from the ashes of the old, or will they make the same mistakes to which humanity has always succumbed? Part 2 of the Eden Democratic Kingdom trilogy follows the continuing development of Eden and its leaders as they work towards a better future for their young nation and all of Earth’s creatures.
In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.
Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister.
Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.
Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
