A War of Gifts

{4.5/5} “In the face of a threat to the survival of the species, all these planetside trivialities are put aside until the crisis passes.”

A War of Gifts by Orson Scott Card, published in 2007

This is a story that takes place when Ender is at Battle School in the novel Ender’s Game. The focus isn’t on Ender, although he plays a major role. Zeck Morgan is a boy whose religion forbids him to fight — so even though he goes to the Battle Room regularly he doesn’t shoot anyone. Dink Meeker is a boy who has decided to be cooperative rather than competitive — when he sees Ender in action, he knows that he’s seeing someone special. It’s a great story for fans of Ender’s Game.

I previously reviewed the latest novel in this series, Shadows in Flight.
