Bean, once the smallest student at the Battle School, and Ender Wiggins's right hand, has grown to be a power on Earth. He served the Hegemon as strategist and general in the terrible wars that followed Ender's defeat of the alien empire attacking Earth. Now he wishes for a safe place to build a family, something he has never known, but there is nowhere on Earth that does not harbor his enemies: old enemies from the days in Ender's Jeesh, new enemies from the wars on Earth. To find security, Bean and Petra must once again follow in Ender's footsteps. They must leave Earth behind, in the control of the Hegemon, and look to the stars.

Although Shadow of the Giant continues many of the lackluster storylines inherited from Shadow Puppets—the hunt for Bean and Petra's "babies" being the worst offender—it also manages to not eff things up any worse than they are. Surprisingly, as the end nears, the story pivots towards a relatively strong finish. This may have saved this otherwise uneven series from oblivion.

Overall, I'm glad I read all four books. That's saying something given my impulsive habit of cutting my losses at the first sign of story trouble. Ender's Shadow kicked things off so well, and while Shadow of the Hegemon was fine, I didn't pick up Shadow Puppets right away. And that book was so underwhelming that I didn't care to find out what happened next in Shadow of the Giant for another ten years. Eventually, curiosity got the better of me.
