My 7th Orson Scott Card book of which 6 are from the Ender’s family of books. I would not call it one of the author’s best efforts. Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.

A War of Gifts - My 18th Orson Scott Card book of which 15 are from the Ender’s family of books. A very short book about Battle School. Doctor-at-Bass-Fishing! Taylor A.

I enjoyed the story (really liked the ending). Though it made me a bit sad, I really like it. It's not very long, though it does have a lot of depth to it. I definitely recommend this.

It was fun to read another story in the Ender's Game universe. I liked the different look at Battle School and Ender.

A nice addition to the Ender universe, exploring the various religions of the students of Battle School. This book certainly develops peripheral characters, but unfortunately doesn't expand upon Ender's character. I recommend this book for anyone who thoroughly enjoyed Ender's Game.

This is such a great story. Those people who love Ender's Game, and who want a good Christmas story, this is your book.

Short and quick to read. Isn't a strong stand alone story but a nice addition the the Ender's universe.
