I didn't dislike this as much as the rest of the series. Odd, since I thought the only good thing about the the previous two books was Achilles. It felt sort of rushed though. Like he was breezing through the story, very unlike Card.

I mostly read the rest of the Shadow books for completion, and I don't know that I'd recommend these to anyone except die hard OSC fans, I just don't think that I could've lived the rest of my life out not knowing what happened to the battle school kids.

I also want to read Ender in Exile and knew some of the stuff from these books was referenced there. I'm also really excited for Shadows in Flight, though i'm incredibly worried about the quality of that book given what I've just finished reading. The Shadow series(excluding Ender's Shadow) was disappointing, but if Shadows in Flight is at this level I might be devastated.
