"Nearly 100 years before the events of Orson Scott Card's bestselling novel "Ender's Game," humans were just beginning to step off Earth and out into the Solar System. A thin web of ships in both asteroid belts; a few stations; a corporate settlement on Luna. No one had seen any sign of other space-faring races; everyone expected that First Contact, if it came, would happen in the future, in the empty reaches between the stars. Then a young navigator on a distant mining ship saw something moving too fast, heading directly for our sun. When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and supply stations, and between them and Earth. So Earth and Luna were unaware that they had been invaded until the ship pulled into Earth orbit, and began landing terra-forming crews in China. Politics and pride slowed the response on Earth, and on Luna, corporate power struggles seemed more urgent than distant deaths. But there are a few men and women who see that if Earth doesn't wake up and pull together, the planet could be lost. Now everything depends on a few quick-thinking teams--Mazer Rackham's squad in China, who have developed a method to destroy the alien landers one by one, and Lem Jukes and his crew on the Moon, who may have the key to destroying the Formic mother ship in orbit."--From print ed.

You can tell this is a bridge book, it is pulling the threads from the first book towards the upcoming final book which I assume will be out this year. So we need to read it to make sense of the plot but I am aware this is just an income stretcher for the author.
