    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.

    Overall

    First the book, a weird blend of fantasy and sci-fi that doesn't really make any sense until close to the end of the book. I really enjoyed parts of the book but I got really tired of all the pointless social and political posturing that no young teenager would do and I got tired of all pointless theoretical physics that the author seems to love. The cool abilities of the main characters are interesting but the author rambles on about ramifications and theories about time traveling. Even though it is the first book of a series it does have a reasonable ending that provides a story for the rest of series without leaving you hanging.

    There are a few narrators for the different characters and some of them are OK but others suck. The guy in the sample does most of the book so if you like him don't worry about the narrators.

    I probably won't buy the rest of the series but I might rent the hard copies.
