About the Book

Children of the Fleet

From Orson Scott Card, the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the science fiction classic ENDER'S GAME, comes CHILDREN OF THE FLEET. A solo Enderverse novel, this is the story of the Fleet in space, occurring parallel to the Earth narrative in the Ender’s Shadow series.

Ender Wiggin won the Third Formic war, ending the alien threat to Earth. Afterwards, all the terraformed Formic worlds were open to settlement by humans, and the International Fleet became the arm of the Ministry of Colonization, run by Hirum Graff. MinCol now runs Fleet School on the old Battle School station, and still recruits very smart kids to train as leaders of colony ships and colonies.

Dabeet Ochoa is a very smart kid. Top of his class in every school. But he doesn’t think he has a chance at Fleet School, because he has no connections to the Fleet. That he knows of. At least until the day that Colonel Graff arrives at his school for an interview.

Audiobook available, read by Stefan Rudnicki and a full cast
