Speaker for the Dead

Speaker for the Dead

‘There aren’t too many recent sf novels we can confidently call truly moral works, but Speaker for the Dead is one. It’s a completely gripping story.’ – The Toronto Star

‘Achieves and delivers more than almost anything else within the science fiction genre, Ender’s Game is a contemporary classic’ – New York Times on Ender’s Game

A FALLEN HERO – HAUNTED BY HIS PAST, BUT CAN HE CHANGE THE FUTURE?

Ender Wiggin was once considered a great military leader, a saviour for mankind.
But now history judges his destruction of an alien race as monstrous rather than heroic.

In the aftermath of the war, Ender disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: The Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story behind the battle with the aliens. Now, years later, a second alien race has been discovered. But again they are strange and frightening – and again, humans are dying.

It is only the Speaker for the Dead, secretly Ender Wiggin, who has the courage to confront the mystery . . . and the truth.

The Hugo and Nebula award-winning sequel to the classic science fiction novel ENDER’S GAME – soon to be released as a major motion picture starring Harrison Ford.
