Speaker For The Dead

This is the second book in the Ender’s Game series, and is better than the novelized Ender’s Game, although it is impossible to beat the short story version. Ender has grown a lot over the time between this book and the last, and the story is compelling and believable. I really enjoyed this book.

By Blood Alone

Maybe I’ve been reading too much combat fiction recently and need a change of scenery. Or perhaps its just that this book isn’t as good as the last two (Legion of the Damned and The Final Battle). The characters aren’t the strongest, and the plot is weaker than the previous two books. On the other hand, I did finish the book, and don’t regret reading it. Oh, the cliff hanger ending is annoying too.

The Final Battle

I somehow forgot to make a note about this book when I read it, I suspect because I was travelling at the time. This book was as good as Legion of the Damned and an enjoyable read. The book continues straight on from the previous one, and possibly should have been inside the same volume. A fun read.
