Three thousand planet-bound years have passed while Ender the star-traveller remains young. In that time his name has become anathema, for he is the one who killed an entire race of thinking, feeling beings. No other has been found - until Lusitania is discovered.

The young race there offers mankind a chance to redeem the previous destruction. The only humans allowed near are trained xenobiologists. But once again there are tragic misunderstandings. And when Ender, as Andrew Wiggin, is called to Lusitania to speak for the dead - to present to the community the terrible truth of why men have been killed by aliens - his actions can, and will, reverberate through an entire galactic empire.

Reviews for Speaker For The Dead (#2 Ender)

Told with compassion and keen insight, this powerful sequel to Ender's Game is highly recommended -- LIBRARY JOURNAL Less brash than Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead may be a much better book. Don't miss it! -- ANALOG A great read! -- UPI REVIEWS An incredible ending that knocks you sideways -- SUNDAY EXPRESS on ENDER'S GAME Almost impossible to put down -- LOCUS on ENDER'S GAME Card has taken the venerable SF concepts of a superhuman and interstellar war . . . and, with superb characterisation, pacing and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power -- BOOKLIST on ENDER'S GAME A gripping tale of adventure in space and a scathing indictment of the military mind -- LIBRARY JOURNAL on ENDER'S GAME An increasingly popular and relevant novel that risks and achieves and delivers more than almost anything else within the science fiction genre, Ender's Game is a contemporary classic -- NEW YORK TIMES on ENDER'S GAME Some of the most hauntingly brilliant writing of the decade -- INTERZONE on ENDER'S GAME
