    Stonefather | Orson Scott Card


    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Orson Scott Card
    • Narrated By Emily Janice Card

    When Runnel leaves his mountain valley to head for the great city of the water mages, he has no idea of his own magical talents. But he soon finds that without meaning to, he complicates and then endangers the lives of everyone he comes to know and care about. For when it comes to magic, there are rules and laws, and the untrained mage-to-be must be careful not to tap into deep forces and ancient enmities. Otherwise, other people might end up paying the price for his mistakes.

    Familiar and unique--a breath of fresh air

    Card shows here that he has continued to hone his writing skills long after success first claimed him. While there are bits and pieces in the text tha..Show More »

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    Card doing what he does best.

    While Orson Scott Card has already written any number of coming of age stories, he proves once again that he can breath new life into the subject. The..Show More »

    The Gate Thief: Mithermages, Book 2 | Orson Scott Card

    The Gate Thief: Mithermages, Book 2

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs)
    • By Orson Scott Card
    • Narrated By Stefan Rudnicki, Emily Rankin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Here on Earth, Danny North is still in high school, yet he holds in his heart and mind all the stolen outselves of 13 centuries of gatemages. The Families still want to kill him if they can’t control him - and they can’t control him; he is far too powerful. On Westil, Wad is now nearly powerless - he lost everything to Danny in their struggle. Even if he can survive the revenge of his enemies, he must still somehow make peace with the Gatemage Daniel North, for when Danny took that power from Loki, he also took responsibility for the Great Gates.

    Flashes of Great, Ok, and Bad. Overall: Meh.

    What I liked:

    Card manages to put together a fairly interesting structure of magic and how that creates the major conflict that drives the st..Show More »

    Gatefather: The Mithermages, Book 3 | Orson Scott Card

    Gatefather: The Mithermages, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Orson Scott Card
    • Narrated By Emily Rankin, Stefan Rudnicki

    Danny North is the first Gate Mage to be born on Earth in nearly 2,000 years, or at least the first to survive and claim his power, for families of Westil in exile on Earth have a treaty that requires the death of any suspected Gate Mage. The wars between the families had been terrible until at last they realized it was their own survival in question.

    All talk and no action

    I had high hopes for this book, thinking that all the in-depth exploration of the magical system in the second book would lead to character developmen..Show More »
