Rigg is no stranger to keeping a secret. In fact, this is what he's been trained to do. His father, alone, knows the reality behind the powers Rigg seems to wield for seeing into the past of others.

Too soon, Rigg's father dies, leaving Rigg stunned not just at his death, but at the secrets surrounding the past of their family. Now, not only can Rigg look into the past, but he might be able to change it...

In this question of identity and destiny, Rigg is set on a trail that lies between two opposing poles, one that seeks to crown him, and one that seeks to destroy him. And, in dealing with the consequences of his birthright, Rigg will have to learn who to trust, how to push the limits of his gifts, and how to let go of control of his future, and even his past.

Orson Scott Card was born in 1951. He is an author, a critic, a public speaker, essayist, columnist, and a political activist. Best known for his break out novel Ender's Game, the winner of the Hugo and the Nebula Award, Card writes in the genres of science fiction, mainly. He belongs to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and opposes gay rights, which has sparked much controversy among his fans and readers. The book Enders Game was adapted for film and is set for motion picture release in November 2013.

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.

Rigg's birthright sets him on a path that leaves him caught between two factions, one that wants him crowned and one that wants him dead. He will be forced to question everything he thinks he knows, choose who to trust, and push the limits of his talent... or forfeit control of his destiny.

    " This book was good but I had a few problems with it. One it was long there were a few spots it dragged a little for me. The second thing that bothered me was the time travel. It got really confusing and didn't make sense. I felt a little better in the acknowledgments that the author meant for it to be that way. It was a clean book for anyone to read if you can get through 657 pages. "

    " I finished this last night and am in total agreement with Brian's review! "Ruins" is next in the Pathfinder series, which I am three chapters into, and have to think that it will be as enjoyable as "Pathfinder". "

    " I always thoughtEnder's Game was a totally great read for students (gr. 5-7), but a little immature for anyone older. Pathfinder is an awesome book for kids and adults alike! It's sci-fi set in an almost medieval world, so great if you like sci-fi and historical fiction. "

    " It was well written, as all his books are, but the complicated time travel premise was just not very enjoyable for me to read about, it just didn't make sense. "
