COVER LAUNCH Exclusive Cover Reveal: Children of the Fleet by Orson Scott Card
The universe of Orson Scott Cardís Enderís Game hasnít stopped expanding in more than 30 years. What began as a short story and grew into a Hugo-winning novel, then a quartet of books, has been augmented with prequels, sequels, and side-quels. Later this year, Tor Books will publish another one: Children of the Fleet, Cardís first solo Ender novel since 2008, and today, weíre giving you an exclusive peek at the cover art.
Set at the same time as the events of the Enderís Shadow series and in the wake of the Formic War, Children of the Fleet returns to the Battle School where Ender made his bones. Now the Fleet school, it trains the best and brightest children to lead humanityís colonization efforts. Check out the cover art, by series mainstay John Harris, below the official summary, and preorder the book, available in October.
After the Third Formic war was won by Ender Wiggin, the alien threat to Earth was over. The terraformed Formic worlds were open to settlement by humans and the International Fleet became the arm of the Ministry of Colonization, run by Hirum Graff. MinCol now runs Fleet School on the old Battle School station, and still recruits very smart kids to train as leaders of colony ships and colonies.
Dabeet Ochoa is a very smart kid. Top of his class in every school. But he doesnít think he has a chance at Fleet School, because he has no connections to the Fleet. That he knows of. At least until the day that Colonel Graff arrives at his school for an interview.
Children of the Fleet is a new angle on Cardís bestselling series, telling the story of the Fleet in space, parallel to the story on Earth told in the Enderís Shadow series.
Preorder Children of the Fleet, available October 10, 2017.
