So, my experience with Orson Scott Card has been limited to his books Enchanted and Hart’s Hope. I enjoyed the former and definitely struggled through the latter. However, in a night of boredom in the husband’s absence and the baby’s slumbering, I walked over to Ben’s Card library and pulled down this hardback, finding myself struck by the cover. Reading through the synopsis, I decided to give it a try. I am fewer than 100 pages into it but it is rather interesting thus far. I am rooting for Danny and have easily come to instantly despise some of his family members.
I will be honest in that I’m not entirely sure of what to expect of this book; it’s been years since I read a Card book but I am hoping for this to be a good adventure. I like Mages.
