Don't be turned off by this terribly cliche cover art. The book, while long, is actually totally great. Have you read Ender's Game? Pathfinder reads a lot like that does. Tons of build up and huge reveal at the end. Here is the synopsis.

"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." via. 

His stories are always so interesting. Worlds that completely mystify me.
I really liked the main character, Rigg. 
I like magical things. 
Made me wish I had super powers. 
Didn't remind me of all the dystopian stuff that I am reading now days.
The big reveal at the end kind of blew my mind. 

Long book. It didn't feel long but it took me a long time to get through it.
The narrative is really stark between the two worlds he is showing and it doesn't make sense for a while. 

Read it and tell me what you think. I loved it, but I also think that I am a little bit bias towards good ol' Orson Scott Card. 


I feel like I give everything four stars. Well everything I like anyway, but please know that this star system is completely subjective depending on my brain entirely.
