    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.

    Story

    I need to preface this by saying that even though I LOVE many science fiction stories and movies, I'm NOT always a fan of Science Fiction. I tend to like more fantasy. My husband and father have really pushed me to read some of Orson Scott Card's books, so I got this one thinking that they would both enjoy it. I like magical powers and magical worlds, but as soon as robots and spaceships join the mix I don't always like it. This has 2 interesting colliding stories in it that have really meshed into... or crashed into 1 intertwined story.

    I really liked the characters, plot and the time-travel link. It was really interesting to see the two stories coming together. I really liked the ending and the setup for the series. It seems very interesting and I hope that I will like the future books.

    I'm not surprised that Orson Scott Card wrote a good book, I know he is a good author. I just wasn't sure I would like it. I did like the main characters and the way they handled their hurdles. I appreciate the fact that he writes clean stories with a minimum of swearing. I think there are many areas in which the characters can grow and I think the story line has a lot of room for development.

    The only confusing part was the time travel stuff. Wow, I'm not sure how he even wrote those parts. It was horribly mind-bending to listen to, but still an enticing ... what if....

    I don't know that it was my favorite book of all time, but I think it was plenty good enough. I can see the series growing on me. Who knows what the future... or the past might bring. I give it a definite thumbs up. Now I need the next one in the series.
