I’d say this is one of the weaker books in the series, as there wasn’t much focus on anything.  There was the conflict of mother-daughter, the conflict of admiral-Ender, and the conflict of Ender-Achilles.  The book lacked a coherent center, and even the world building that it did, didn’t have a good center about which it focused.  I still enjoyed it for what it is, but look forward to the meeting of the shadow and Ender series, despite the main character of both being dead.
