Angers the lives of everyone he has come 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 mistak. Card once again demonstrates himself to be a master storyteller and matchless at world building This is unfortunately too short and the ending especially feels rushed I read the first two Mither Mages books when they were new and while I like them I don t recall them being as good as this Looking forward to rereading those and finishing off the series

Stonefather

When Runnel a friendless peasant from a village so humble that money is a new concept leaves his mountain valley he is completely unaware of his magical talents Seeking his fortune he stumbles into a centuries old feud when he travels to Mitherhome the city of the water mages. Pretty good little book This is a short one I got through in one sitting last night This is if you ve read both obviously the proto The Lost Gate The Lost Gate There are some differences here people are simply refereed to as mages and we get an intro level look at the magic system The mythological deities used in The Lost Gate aren t mentioned here On the other hand we get an introduction to some of the terms we ll find in that book According to Card this idea peculated in his mind for some years before it found printHere also we start with a young man who leaves home and comes into the knowledge and possession of his unsuspected inborn powers A standard fantasy folklore and even mythic story line and the boy in the story sees the parallels between his own case and the case of a legend or old tale he s familiar with it s handled well here and makes a short but enjoyable taleWhile it has no direct tie in with the recent book is it taking place on the other world referenced in that book That s not made clear but Card may do so later Will he tie them in I don t know this one is a book I think you ll enjoy

He accepts a servant's position in the household of the sole stone mage permitted within the city walls and there his untapped magical talents and his fascination with his master's abilities are a predictably dangerous combination Soon without meaning to he complicates and end. 35 StarsThis was a fun uick read but it felt needlessly rushed As a result I think the characters were rather shallow which was a disappointment I m sure this disappointment can be rectified by reading the following books but for now I m sticking with 35 stars based on this book alone

He's an amazing writer and world builder This novella is testament to that in a little over 100 pages he has created a fascinating new world that stands apart from his others Ender Saga Prentice Alvin Songs of Earth etc The idea of battle between stone magic and water magic played through a city

    This was an entertaining introduction into Card's new universe for this series However the story felt modified to fit a need The first 23 of the story is an interesting narrative eventful introducing characters and situations and world logic and it frankly had an obvious ending that would lead on to the start o
