Mr O, peaks around the corner and welcomes us.

He has a tale to tell.

In a world that is found in Laddertop...

Laddertop
Volume 1
by Orson Scott Card and Emily Janice Card
illustrated by Honoel A. Ibardolaza

One of the true stars of science fiction and fantasy writing, Hugo and Nebula Award winner Orson Scott Card joins his daughter Emily Janice Card for the first time to coauthor an all-new science fiction manga epic with LADDERTOP, Vol. 1 (Tor Seven Seas/Trade Paperback; September 27, 2011; $10.99). Illustrated by award-winning Honoel A. Ibardolaza, LADDERTOP, Vol. 1 follows an elite crew of children in a space station, in the tradition of Ender’s Game.

Twenty-five years ago, the alien Givers came to Earth. They gave the human race the greatest technology ever seen— four giant towers known as Ladders that rise 36,000 miles into space and culminate in space stations that power the entire planet. Then, for reasons unknown, the Givers disappeared. Due to the unique alien construction of the Laddertop space stations, only a skilled crew of children can perform the maintenance necessary to keep the stations up and running.

Back on Earth, competition is fierce to enter Laddertop Academy. It is an honor few students will achieve. Robbi and Azure, two eleven-year-old girls who are the best of friends, are candidates for the Academy. They will become entangled in a dangerous mystery that may help them solve the riddle of the Givers...if it doesn’t destroy the Earth first!

The first book of three, LADDERTOP, VOL 1 continues in the tradition of showcasing the Cards’ well-crafted, spellbinding storytelling skills. Combined with Ibardolaza’s masterful illustration, Robbi and Azure’s lively, unforgettable adventures will captivate both Ender fans and manga readers.
