At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children - the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten - a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth’s history.
But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come. For there in space before them lies a derelict Formic colony ship. Aboard it, they will find both death and wonders - the life support that is failing on their own ship, room to grow, and labs in which to explore their own genetic anomaly and the mysterious disease that killed the ship’s colony.

Poooor sound qual... the book would be far better!
What a waste... Poor compression (or too much of it) ruined this book. Audible, why again... This is definitely NOT worth the 10 bucks.
The story itself is interesting, even if there are not this many unexpected twists I expected, but still a good plot in the Ender universe. I just can't get over the artefacts and poor reading (there are at least 2 good and unterstandable voices, but one is terrible).

A second xenocide
First off, the production is, as always good.
Second, the plot dosen't fit into the universe. On its own shadows in flight would be a decent book, but if you look at the ender series many actions don't make a lot of sense, maybe orison card forgot what happend in his other books or he simply ignored it in order to tell the story he wanted to.
Either way the actions at the end don't make much sense either in my eyes.
(spoilers) The children, who over the whole book were apalled by the thought of having to populate an entire planet by letting their childern interbreed decide that now, that they cured their growth they don't want to return to human space because they were too smart? really that is the excuse?
