The War is over, won by Ender Wiggin and his team of brilliant child-warriors. The enemy is destroyed, the human race is saved. Ender himself refuses to return to the planet, but his crew has gone home to their families, scattered across the globe. The battle school is no more.
But with the external threat gone, the Earth has become a battlefield once more. The children of the Battle School are more than heros; they are potential weapons that can bring power to the countries that control them. One by one, all of Ender's Dragon Army are kidnapped. Only Bean escapes; and he turns for help to Ender's brother Peter.
Peter Wiggin, Ender's older brother, has already been manipulating the politics of Earth from behind the scenes. With Bean's help, he will eventually rule the world. "Shadow of the Hegemon" is the second novel in Orson Scott Card's Shadow Series.""

Worse than the "hegemon" are the chapters read by the character Petra. She cannot pronounce Achilles' name properly. It isn't like the owner of the famous heel, as pointed out by the authour and other characters in the story, it's pronounced ah-sheel. It's very distracting. The producer should have caught this early on in the studio, and it should have been corrected then.

Strange tape-over everytime the word "Hegemon" is said (which is often), the voice and sound is different, like they tried to change or cover something from the original recording. Poor quality, but the rest is fine.

This recording also has little musical interludes between chapters that the other Card audiobooks I've listened too did not. Odd waste of 2 minutes every half hour.
