Shadow Puppets, by Orson Scott Card

I loved the original Ender’s Game series, so this re-examination of the universe bothers me. This is the third book in the series (Ender’s Shadow and Shadow of the Hegemon were the first two) detailing what happens on Earth after Ender leaves, when all of his fellow “soldiers” battle it out for control of Earth. The geopolitical ideas are somewhat interesting, but the characterization is really lacking. I’m glad I borrowed it from the library rather than buying.
