Well worth the read if you're a fan of the series,
This review is from: Ender in Exile (Hardcover)
...Spends more time winding up loose plot threads than it does actually spinning story. Being sandwiched inbetween two chapters of Ender's Game, for the most part, that's somewhat unsurprising, perhaps, but it really doesn't move the story on at all.
Essential if you follow the series, and care about what happens to character like Graff. Fills in the gap at the end of Ender's Game wonderfully.
Just don't expect it to stand on its own merits.
Strictly for fans of the series. Also completely incomprehensible if you haven't read the "Shadow" saga.
That said, I've enjoyed it. Genuinely worth the read. Wish it had a little more story, but that's for Shadows in Flight to wind up, I suppose.
