Ender’s Game Books in Order, by Orson Scott Card

In a future where Earth is preparing for a potential third invasion by an alien species known as the Formics, the government identifies and trains gifted children to become military commanders, with a focus on finding a strategic genius who can lead humanity to victory. Andrew “Ender” Wiggin is a young boy with exceptional tactical abilities and is selected to attend Battle School, a space-based military training facility. There, he undergoes intense training in war simulations, facing increasingly challenging scenarios against other gifted children. As Ender progresses through the training, he becomes a military prodigy, ultimately commanding Earth’s forces in a simulated battle against the Formics. However, as the story unfolds, Ender discovers the true nature of the simulations and the consequences of his actions. The Ender’s Game book series is written by Orson Scott Card.
