Summary
Nearly one hundred years before the events of Ender's Game, humans were just beginning to step off Earth and out into the solar system. No one had seen any sign of other spacefaring races. Everyone expected that first contact, if it came, would happen in the future, in the empty reaches between the stars. Then a young navigator on a distant mining ship saw something moving too fast, heading directly for our sun. When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and supply stations, and between them and Earth. So Earth and Luna were unaware that they had been invaded until the ship pulled into Earth's orbit and began landing terraforming crews in China. Now everything depends on a few quick-thinking teams--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
