This note contains spoilers for the book.
This is the latest book in the Ender Wiggin universe; a sequel to Ender's Shadow. It features Bean, and Petra, and Sister Carlotta. And Peter Wiggins, and Achilles.
So far it's very good. After the Formic War, and after the little local war on Earth, things are trying to settle down, but the children trained in Battle School are becoming pawns in the political game. And Achilles and Peter Wiggin are both playing, too.
Holds up well to the end. At least two more books to come.
Don't read the Afterword, though.
