A hundred years before Ender\'s Game, humans thought they were alone in the galaxy. Humanity was slowly making their way out from Earth to the planets and asteroids of the Solar System, exploring and mining and founding colonies.\n\nThe mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador\'s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it\'s hard to know what to make of it. It\'s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.\n\nBut the ship has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big. There are claim-jumping corporates bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt. Worrying about a distant object that might or might not be an alien ship seems…not important.\n\nThey\'re wrong. It\'s the most important thing that has happened to the human race in a million years. This is humanity\'s first contact with an alien race. The First Formic War is about to begin.\n\nEarth Unawareis the first novel in The First Formic War series by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston.\n\nTHE ENDER UNIVERSE\n\nEnder series\n\nEnder’s Game/ Speaker for the Dead/ Xenocide/ Children of the Mind/Ender in Exile/ Children of the Fleet\n\nEnder’s Shadow series\n\nEnder’s Shadow/ Shadow of the Hegemon/ Shadow Puppets/ Shadow of the Giant/ Shadows in Flight\n\nThe First Formic War (with Aaron Johnston)\n\nEarth Unaware/ Earth Afire/ Earth Awakens\n\nThe Second Formic War (with Aaron Johnston)\n\nThe Swarm/ The Hive\n\nEnder novellas\n\nA War of Gifts/ First Meetings
