The story of The First Formic War continues in "Earth Awakens," nearly 100 years before the events of Orson Scott Card's bestselling novel "Ender's Game."..

When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and Earth. So Earth and Luna were unaware that they had been invaded until the ship dropped into Earth orbit, and began landing terraforming crews in China. Politics slowed the response on Earth, and on Luna, corporate power struggles seemed more urgent than distant deaths. But millions of people were dying, and the planet could be lost.

It's up to Mazer Rackham's squad in China, who have developed a method to destroy the alien landers one by one; and Lem Jukes and his crew on the Moon, who may have the key to destroying the Formic mother ship in orbit.

Praise for "Earth Afire"
"The sections that feature highly intelligent, self-reliant children--Card's trademark--are as excellent as ever; elsewhere there's plenty of solid action, well-developed characters....Another solidly engrossing installment, where the aliens are really just a sideshow: What we're witnessing is how and why Ender's child armies came to be." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"While the reader knows who wins the war, the fate of the engaging characters in this story is up in the air. Thirty-five years after he introduced Ender to the world, it's great to see that Orson Scott Card is still making magic in this imaginative world." --"NY Journal of Books
""The pacing and the vivid action scenes will satisfy hard-core military-SF buffs. At the same time, the characters and the ethical foundations under them are at the high level we have come to associate with Card. Laying their own foundations under Card's Ender Wiggins saga, the Formic Wars promise to add to Card's already high reputation and to his collaborator's as well." --"Booklist," ""starred review
"Card and Johnston explore human ignorance and compassion through a tapestry of galactic warfare in the second volume of the Formic Wars trilogy.... Social upheavals and political ineptitude are realized through rich characterization and brisk action." --"Publishers Weekly"
