The continuing fantastic tale of the Mages of Westil who live in exile on Earth. Here on Earth, Danny North is still in high school, yet he holds in his heart and mind all the stolen outselves of thirteen 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. And 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 still must somehow make peace with the Gatemage Daniel North. For when Danny took that power from Loki, he also took the responsibility for the Great Gates. And when he comes face-to-face with the mages who call themselves Bel and Ishtoreth, he will come to understand just why Loki closed the gates all those centuries ago.

I feel very excited by this work of art. Often, I find I enter into a series mid way, or even by reading the last book first. This gives clear in site into the works themselves, how they stand alone and, as the greater whole, the series. I read Gatefather first, then Lost gate and then this, Gate thief This trilogy stands impeccably however you choose to read. Orson Scott Card is an amazing artist in his craft -

Very narrow audience. Boys 13-17 possibly. When the focus is on the characters it is a very good story. Sadly the fantasy is just awful--long descriptions of "mages" "ka" and "ba" that, while I see the underlying concept, are boring and too confusing--and then never seem to have a point as they don't pertain to the actual story line. Sorry if this is unclear, but the book was beyond confusing and if you are not 13 and wanting to have girls like you because of your super power, it is boring. Where is the mastery of craft we say in _Ender's Shadow_?

A little predictable, with its teenage angst, but an interesting concept with the ties to all the mythologies that we think of.

Hello, fellow fans of Orson Scott Card. I read this book, and I am here to warn you. This book is sexual, and as such I would suggest not reading it. Another good series is the Pathfinder and Ender's shadow.

I used to like this author, but I did not finish this book. I renewed it a half dozen times, and kept reading other books instead. I got several chapters in... but I just couldn't care enough to finish it. So, I blame the book! The first several chapters are deadly dull.
