A powerful secret. A dangerous path. Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg's strange talent for seeing the paths of people's pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him--secrets about Rigg's own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain. Rigg’s birthright sets him on a path that leaves him caught between two factions, one that wants him crowned and one that wants him dead. He will be forced to question everything he thinks he knows, choose who to trust, and push the limits of his talent…or forfeit control of his destiny.

Okay, so, this is . . . probably not a bad book. There, I said it. It's not written abominably, and the premise is not entirely without merit. I didn't personally enjoy it, but far off in the distance I can see the glimmers of what makes so many other people enjoy it. Thus, I'm giving it two stars. ...
My usual favorite books follow a certain pattern: One point-of-view, from a powerful and intelligent character (I always accept recommendations about these types of books, prefering fantasy or sci-fi genres).This book however, wasn't quite like that. It had about two or three POVs, but the nice thi...
I finished this yesterday and really, really enjoyed it. Not that I expected anything less, as I've loved everything I've read by Orson Scott Card so far :) It's a fun mix between Science Fiction and Fantasy, and I think the mix really works. I'd guessed some of the twists ahead of time, but not all...
