Some fans of Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow might be disappointed by the lack of space opera elements continuing on into this book, but Shadow Puppets is still a great novel of political intrigue, military strategy, and philosophical ruminating--assuming you're into that kind of stuff. I like that Card keeps the plot moving steadily forward, finally giving us the penultimate showdown between Bean and Achilles that we've been long waiting for. It's pretty much along the same lines as the last book in the series (though this time with perhaps a dash of Jason Bourne flavoring), so not much else need be said. A good plot, cool characters, and a realistic depiction of global political issues as they might exist in the future...am very much looking forward to part 4.
