Earth Afire Cover Art and Synopsis

sfsi0c-20SF Signal has just released the cover art and synopsis of Earth Afire, the second novel in the First Formic Wars Trilogy co-written by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston. The First Formic Wars Trilogy is a prequel trilogy to Ender’s Game. Read the full the full synopsis below.

100 years before Ender’s Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. This is the story of the First Formic War.

Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn’t believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame.

And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.

Earth Afire will be published on June 4, 2013. You can pre-order it on Amazon, here, and if you’re curious as to how this one falls into Enderverse, we made this timeline. Click here for a larger version of the cover art.

    LOVED Earth Unaware, can’t wait for the second. Wonder if there will be another book or group of books about the second invasion down the road. I know OSC is bigger into one of his other franchises, but I really feel like the Ender franchise has the best chance at success with a broader group of people.
