Raiders

The year is 3020 AD, and humanity has spread out across the galaxy, populating thousands of worlds to create a vast empire.


In a remote corner of this huge civilisation, the inhabitants of two star systems have been at war with each other for decades.


For many, the war has been raging since before they were born.


For most, it will continue long after they die.


Sam Willet is convinced she has what it takes to become a fighter pilot... to hunt down and destroy the enemy in deep space.


Instead she's assigned to Tactical Operations training. It's vital work, but it's still a desk job, far from the front line.


Then, terrible news: Sam's older brother is killed in combat.


Sam is given leave to attend his memorial service, but she's barely boarded the transport when the enemy launches a surprise attack, striking far behind friendly lines to take the entire sector.


Desperately short of pilots, the transport's captain asks Sam to step up.


Now, at last, she has the chance to prove herself.


But will that chance end in death... or glory?


The Secret War: Raiders is a complete, standalone novel. It does not end on a cliffhanger.

Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is the winner of the Nebula and Hugo Awards

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.
