Cool story in the end, but...lots of exposition and detail on the backstory and maybe light on the characters. Etc.
Orson Scott Card is an amazing author. I hadn't heard of the Mithermages Series prior to doing a random on-line search for books he had written, as I thoroughly enjoyed the other four series of his I had read (Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, Earth Aware, and Pathfinder). Once again, I'm impressed by his ability to draw me in, keep me on the edge of my seat, so-to-say, and cause me to care for the characters and want more. Thank you, again, for a great reading experience.
I just love this book. can't wait for the next one. the story makes you feel like you really know the characters. I enjoyed both the readers voices they weren't dry, they changed as they read each character and narrated.
A little too much high school romance for me (and somewhat unbelievable - what 17 year old boy constantly resists pretty young girls throwing themselves at him?), but the two world story is very good. Good characters, and, as usual, good story from OSC.
The two different narrators both give life to the story, bringkng more clarity as well as feeling to the minds of the main figures. It's a captivating continuation of a so far great series, can't wait for the next book!
Loved both of these books!! cannot wait for the next one and am hoping he keeps upvt the great flow.
