Bestselling authors Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston return with an all-new prequel to "Ender's Game," The Second Formic War. The first invasion of Earth was beaten back by a coalition of corporate and international military forces. Scientists determined that the single ship that wreaked such damage was merely a scout ship. There is a mothership out beyond the Solar System's Kuiper Belt, and it's heading into the system, unstoppable by any weapons that Earth can muster.

The characters are all back, but the tone of this book is much more somber. Some are having interesting adventures and others are toiling about in misery. Also, some of the groundwork for the setting of Ender's Game is laid out nicely in this book.

Unfortunately, there are some holes in the logic of the book. For example, the authors keep saying that the hull of the Formic ships are indestructible. They forget, however, that the Scout Ship was blown open when the Free Miners & the Jukes ship attacked it while en-route to earth in the first book of the prequel.

There's a few other things that come up that irked me a little, but I love Sci-Fi, so I'll keep reading the books as they come out. I just don't think that I'll be adding Aaron Johnston to my list of favorite authors.
