A nice, fun addition to the Enderverse. It is quite short, I easily read it in one evening. This book is less about battle school and the whole war effort, and more about kindness and cooperation even in an environment designed for competition. Ender is a relatively minor character till late in the book, and instead the story is told from the point of view of Zeck, a religious pacifist forced to learn war, and Dink, who feels battle school is a flawed system and longs for the time when he can make a real contribution to the war effort. To any fans of Ender's Game, I would call this a must read as it is so short and it is a pretty good tale. Must you own it? Probably not. Should you read it? Definitely. (view spoiler)
